     Erin Merritt has returned to her scenic hometown of Heart Lake to plan her wedding, but when she repeatedly runs into her childhood crush, she wonders if she’s engaged to the wrong man.  To make matters worse, all the stress is making her eat, and now she can’t fit into her wedding dress.      

     Erin enlists the help of her cooking club--Angela, Megan and Kizzy--and the Teeny Bikini Diet Club is born.  The women make a pact to get slim enough to wear their bikinis to the lake by summertime, a pact that changes their lives forever.  With a little help from her friends, Angela faces her fear that her marriage is crumbling.  Megan confronts the self-esteem issues that have always held her back.  Kizzy deals with her husband’s efforts to sabotage her diet and keep her overweight.  And Erin learns some important truths about love.

     Pull up your favorite beach chair and savor this funny, inspiring story about being true to yourself and following your heart, and the women who enrich our lives.

Don’t play dumb, scolded her inner mother. You know how this happened. And then her inner mother gave her a little pat on the shoulder. But it’s understandable. You’ve been under a lot of stress.

Praise for Bikini Season

"[Roberts'] characters are warm and engaging, and their interactions are full of humor. This book is perfect for a summer day with a margarita."
--RT Book Reviews
 
"Sheila Roberts makes me laugh.  I read her books and come away inspired, hopeful and happy."
--Debbie Macomber, New York Times bestselling author
 
"Bikini Season deals with that most painful of annual rituals, fitting into one's swimsuit. But it's really about so much more--fitting into one's life. It tells the truth about a woman's hopes and aspirations, and all the kinds of love that fill her life. Don't miss this fast, fresh, fun and funny story by a major new talent." 
--Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author
