Seen through the points of view of various characters, a Nantucket summer has drama, mystery, and glamour to spare. In the last of her novels about the Nantucket community, Hilderbrand describes the impact of some new arrivals on some characters from her other books. There is the wealthy and ostentatious couple that sets out to seduce the island with their elaborate parties and over-the-top generosity, and then there is the young woman newcomer they hire to be their "concjerge." Readers will not be surprised to learn that all is not as it seems, and that if it seems too good to be true it probably is.

I loved this story as much as I loved the first book in this series. I love that there were happy and sad parts in this story. You can feel some of the story lines coming to an end but it is okay because it looks like new ones are starting. Looking forward to reading Winter Solstice next to see what these characters get up to.

This was quite a fun one from this author. It is about 4 couples who are best friends. One couple dies in a sailing accident and the other 3 couples all have many secrets that are about to be exposed, and what if any involvement they had in the accident.
