the edge of their seats with her dramatic story spanning the girls' childhood to adulthood. This wonderful beach read packs a punch."--Library Journal"--
"Darcy Cotterill, 30 and divorced, works at the Nantucket library during the day. She spends most nights in her backyard, gazing at the stars. She's on the brink of starting a relationship with a local carpenter, Nash, when she gets new neighbors for the summer, the most unexpected of whom are her ex-husband, his new wife, and step-daughter. As Darcy is drawn into the lives of her neighbors, she develops a crush on another vacationer, Clive, a musicologist visiting with his grandmother. Over the course of the summer, Darcy is driven to decide what she truly wants--is she over her ex? Will she choose Nash or Clive?"--
""The queen of beach books" (The Star-Ledger) returns to the shores of Nantucket in a novel about one memorable summer when flirtations flourish, family dramas play out, and scandalous secrets surface. Memorial Day weekend means that seasonal visitors have descended on the glamorous island of Nantucket. For year-round resident Darcy Cotterill, it means late-night stargazing in the backyard of the beautiful house she grew up in and inherited from her beloved grandmother. It's also Darcy's chance to hit the beach and meet her new summertime neighbors. But the last person the thirty-year-old librarian expects to see staying next door is her ex-husband, Boyz, along with his wife, Autumn, and stepdaughter, Willow. Darcy must also navigate the highs and lows of a new romantic relationship with local carpenter Nash Forester even as she becomes smitten with handsome vacationer Clive Rush, a musicologist in town to write a book and visit family. And she finds herself pulled into the concerns of Boyz, Autumn, a charming elderly neighbor, and an at-risk teen. As the season nears its end, Darcy must decide her next move: retreating to the comforts of her steady and secure island life, or risking it all for a chance at true happiness. Praise for Nancy Thayer The Island House "A touching story about friendship, family, and the uncertainty of love."--Bustle "Quick-paced, thoroughly engaging, and heartwarming."--The Insatiable Reader The Guest Cottage "A sweet book with romance, laughter, and love after loss. Thayer knows her Nantucket history, and it shines in this book."--RT Book Reviews "It's a pleasant escape to a state of mind in which rebuilding a life is as simple as pitching an umbrella and spreading out a towel."--Kirkus Reviews Nantucket Sisters "Thayer obviously knows her Nantucket, and the strong sense of place makes this the perfect escapist book for the summer, particularly for fans of Elin Hilderbrand."--Booklist "Thayer keeps readers on

I enjoyed this book. It wasn't "great" or "hard to put down". All of this author's books are thoroughly readable and enjoyable.

Nancy Thayer is the perfect summertime read!
I love all her Nantucket books; her descriptions of the Island make me want to jump on a plane and visit......perhaps to not return?
In this book, as always, her characters are believable and loveable, and the plot, though predictable, moves along keeping the reader enthralled.
