Description

Tessa Cordelia appears to have it all—a loving husband who’s just opened a dental practice, a beautiful baby girl, a big house in the suburbs, and a large, supportive family. But when her husband's reckless choices resurrect a trauma from her childhood, she must decide which is more costly: keeping his secrets or revealing them. He manipulates Tessa into believing his career and their happiness depend on her silence. She feels like she’s losing her mind. Is her husband's habit so awful? In many ways, he’s an ideal husband; should she let him have this one thing? Determined to maintain the lie that she’s living the perfect life, Tess lies to everyone she knows—except for CeCe, a woman new to the area whom she’s just befriended. But after confiding in her, Tessa learns that CeCe has an explosive secret of her own, and her world is further upended.

A gripping, nuanced exploration of the havoc addiction can wreak on a family, A Week of Warm Weather is the story of a woman who has to figure out how much she is willing to lose in order to find herself.

Advance Praise

“Lee Bukowski’s debut novel is a page turner that depicts an unflinching portrayal of a marriage through the eyes of addiction. The characters are relatable and the story shows it’s impossible to know what goes on behind closed doors in any family, even one that looks perfect from the outside. A Week of Warm Weather is an engrossing, heartbreaking, and probing novel.” 

—Leslie A. Rasmussen, award-winning author of After Happily Ever After 


“As I drilled into A Week of Warm Weather, I wondered if love could be that blind? In this emotional page-turner, Bukowski transports us into the downward-spiraling life of a young mother struggling to face her husband’s addiction and her own abandonment. The true-to-life cast of characters and harrowing storyline kept me in my chair, grinding my teeth, until this heartbreaking family saga reached its conclusion. An engaging, gripping, and thought-provoking debut to be sure.” 

—Valerie Taylor, international award-winning author of What’s Not Said and What’s Not True
