In The Summer I Met Jack, best-selling author Michelle Gable imagines the affair between John F. Kennedy and Alicia Corning Clark. The novel is based on the fascinating real life of Clark, a woman who J. Edgar Hoover insisted was paid by the Kennedys to keep quiet, not only about her romance with Jack Kennedy, but also a baby they may have had together. The book received praise from Library JournalPublishers Weekly and Kirkus, who called it “a riveting tale about America’s most romanticized family.”

Mary Alice Monroe is the New York Times best-selling author of more than 20 books, including the Beach House series: The Beach House, Beach House Memories, Swimming Lessons, Beach House for Rent and Beach House Reunion. Her latest, The Summer Guests, is a heartwarming and evocative novel about the bonds and new beginnings that are born from natural disasters and how we discover what is most important in life.
