Sometimes it's just really nice to read a book that doesn't require a great deal of concentration and the ending ties everything up neatly. This is just such a book! Leap into the lives of all of these characters thrown together on the island of Nantucket for the summer - I promise you will feel like you have made new friends and will want to book your own oceanside get-a-way when you are done! Enjoy!
A great casual summer read with a few unexpected twists. Thoroughly enjoyable with no sex or violence.
Loved this book! Great summer read. Lesson in "things happen for a reason". First Jane Green book I've read and she's an easy read.
Cute book, sort of like a Lifetime movie...holds your interest even though it's something you wouldn't normally find extraordinary.
Liked the character development and few twists that were added, however everything happened to "fall into place" a little too much for reality. And I agree with another reviewer who mentioned the over-usage of phrases such as "coming home" "finding peace" "living in one's own skin" a little annoying. The point was clear without throwing it down your throat.
That being said, this was definately a light and breezy read that I would definately recommend to anyone looking for such!
This book was such a disappointment . . . predictable and hokey. The author depicts 'Nan Powell' her main character, as an aging woman at the end of life . . . she's about my age and I'm FAR from near the end of life! Green didn't push out much with this book. Her shallow character development and weak story line had me yawning.
If you want witty, well written, entertaining novels read Jennifer Weiner's books.
