The Summer Set

We rated this book:


“In her younger years, Charlie Savoy was the “it” girl star of stage and screen after appearing in a critical and popular remake of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. But, in the last twenty years, her career has fallen apart and the strain of knowing she isn’t what she once was comes to ahead the night she wrecks her car and ends up in Boston Harbor.

Aimee Agresti’s The Summer Set is the story of Charlie’s renewal and return to her former glory and former confidence. After her accident, Charlie is sentenced by a judge to sixty days of community service at a theatre she knows well, the Chamberlain, run by her former lover and director Nick Blunt. The summer they spend together at the Chamberlain trying to revive Shakespeare plays in modern ways for new audiences is as filled with tension and humor as the Bards play themselves.

Charlie is a fully developed character and though the story is hers, the supporting cast is equally intriguing. Those with a theater background will love the attention to detail in that realm, but everyone will find The Summer Set to be a fun and beautifully crafted read.”
