"Things get more twisted at every turn, with enough lies and betrayals to fuel a whole season of soap operas...readers will be hooked."—Publishers Weekly on Elin Hilderbrand's Summer People
Every summer the Newton family retreats to their beloved home on Nantucket for three months of sunshine, cookouts, and bonfires on the beach. But this summer will not be like any other. When Arch Newton, a prominent New York attorney, dies in a plane crash on his way home from a business trip, his beautiful widow, Beth, can barely keep things together. Above all, though, she decides that she must continue the family tradition of going to Nantucket, and at the same time fulfill a promise that Arch made before he died.
Beth invites Marcus, the son of Arch's final and most challenging client, to spend the summer with her and her teenage twins, Winnie and Garrett, who have mixed reactions to sharing their special summer place with this stranger. Always a place of peace before, Nantucket becomes the scene of roiling emotions and turbulent passions as Marcus, Winnie, and Garrett learn about loss, first love, and betrayal. And when they stumble upon a shocking secret from Beth's past, they must keep it from destroying the family they've been trying so hard to heal.
Wonderful summer read and lessons of moving on5By Maggiemom71Great summer read!! Lessons of moving on, of mourning, forgiveness and growing up. As always I've gone someplace familiar with Hilderbrand and come away with something new. Loved it.
Summer People5By CatfansAs always Elin provides characters that we can all relate to. They are lovable, flawed and each of us! A joy to read as always. Thank you for providing me a few hours of escape from my cancer battle.
Review5By Summer PeopleMs. Elin, you are a good writer.
Summer People5By Beach loving momAnother excellent read by Elin Hilderbrand!
Entertaining!3By Denver51Read this book on a lonely Saturday night. It is a very quick but entertaining chick read.
Great story but ...3By Riki NikiWay too short. The ending felt rushed and anti-climatic but this was the first book I've read from this author and I definitely enjoyed her style of writing.
Just OK3By Steve CadyI normally rave about Elin Hilderbrand's books, but this one didn't quite do it for me. It's a good story, and it will definitely hold your interest, but it just wasn't as believable as her other novels. You won't hate it, but I don't think it will end up on your favorites list.
