Introduction

From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes a friends-to-frenemies-to-lovers story… Add in a few secrets. Shake. Stir. Then read on a lazy summer day at the beach…

Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.

And then there’s Kinsey Davis, who after battling serious health issues her entire twenty-nine years of life, is tired of hoping for . . . well, anything. She's fierce, tough, and she’s keeping more than one bombshell of a secret from Brynn -- her long-time frenemy.

But then Brynn runs into Kinsey's best friend, Eli, renewing her childhood crush. The good news: he’s still easy-going and funny and sexy as hell. The bad news: when he gets her to agree to a summer-time deal to trust him to do right by her, no matter what, she never dreams it’ll result in finding a piece of herself she didn’t even know was missing. She could have real connections, possibly love, and a future—if she can only learn to let go of the past.

As the long days of summer wind down, the three of them must discover if forgiveness is enough to grasp the unconditional love that’s right in front of them.

Discussion Questions

1. Brynn is given a real shock when she learns the truth of her connection with Kinsey. What did you think
of her reaction? How do you think you’d react if you were told a similar life-altering fact?

2. Kinsey has been dealing with illness her whole life. How do you think that’s affected who she has become? In what ways do you think difficulties shape our character?
3. Families come in many different forms and in this novel, Brynn and Kinsey are struggling to decide if they are family or if they are just biologically related. How would you define family? What makes a family unit?

4. If Kinsey had told Brynn the truth about their connection when she first moved in, would Brynn’s reaction have been different
or would she have believed she was only wanted for her kidney?
Was Kinsey right to try to build a relationship first?

5. If you were Eli, would you have made the decision to keep Kinsey’s secret?

6. Kinsey sees herself as selfish. Do you agree?

7. Keeping a secret to protect another happens more than once in The Summer Deal, from Brynn not telling her moms about the childhood bullying to Kinsey not telling Brynn about their father. Is this kind of secret worth it or is it a type of lie? Would you keep
this kind of secret?
