By Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

Mabel Dagmar is on scholarship at a prestigious East Coast college, and never expects to become close friends with her beautiful, blue-blooded roommate Genevra "Ev" Winslow. When Ev invites Mabel to spend the summer at Bittersweet, the Winslow's magical lakeside estate in Vermont, a breezy summer of midnight skinny-dipping and boozy boat cruises awaits. But as Mabel becomes an insider, a terrible discovery leads to shocking violence and an ugly revelation about the Winslow's powerful standing in society.
