Linda Hughes

Linda Hughes will be in the store signing copies of her latest book, Secrets of the Summer on Friday, August 2nd from 2:00-4:00pm. This is a free table signing, reservations are not necessary.

Summer Rose Krause tries – really she does – but she simply can’t manage to stay out of trouble. It’s 1965 and the twenty-one-year old; who hails from a prominent Michigan family, no less; finds herself in jail for the second time. When the judge renders a verdict of community service in a hick town Summer’s never heard of, the young woman thinks her life is doomed. Little does she expect to tumble onto a murder and fall in love with a man who’s all wrong for her, all in one fell swoop. 

As Summer becomes entangled in the lives of the sometimes quirky and always fascinating townsfolk, she can’t help but delve into helping them solve the murder, which steeps them in stories about the Roaring ‘20s, a snazzy speakeasy, the infamous Detroit Purple Gang, and a mysterious gangster moll. Shocking revelations teach Summer a lot over the summer, but will it be enough to get the girl to settle down?

Her secrets may run deeper than even she knows.  

Award-winning author Linda Hughes has a dozen books in publication. Secrets of the Summer is the third book in her historical romantic suspense trilogy set in her home state of Michigan, along with Secrets of the Asylum, set in Traverse City, and Secrets of the Island, set on Mackinac Island. 

Secrets of the Summer takes place in her small hometown, West Branch. Although Linda was born and raised in Michigan, and graduated from Central Michigan University, she has spent most of her adult life living in Georgia. So she considers herself to be a Yankee and a Southerner.  

Her writing honors – including awards and being a finalist for awards – come from the National Writers Association, Writer’s Digest, the American Screenwriters Association, eLit, Indie Book of the Day, Silver Falchion, and the Baltic Writing Residency.
