I have not had much time for reading but once I started this book I just couldn't put it down. I love the writing style that Elin Hilderbrand. Her books are so easy to read and stay with the story even if you get interrupted every once awhile by a hungry child or crying.
Nantucket Nights is about three women who have been friends now for twenty years and have such a great relationship that they don't ever think that something could go wrong. They are completely different woman. You will meet Kayla who is your average stay at home mom who worships the ground her kids and husband walks on. She is insecure, has no time for herself and doesn't exactly know who she is other than a mother of four. Val is a lawyer who everyone in their small town thinks is a B***h. She wears designer clothes, drives an expensive car and is in an unhappy marriage. Antoinette is the strange one loves to dance, drink wine and live the life of being alone. They all have an agreement to meet at the end of summer every year to share their secrets and be there for one another. Well this summer their friend Antoinette ends up missing while swimming out in dangerous water and is believed to have drowned. With her disappearance brings out all the secrets that will forever separate but connect the women in all new ways. Kayla's life comes crashing down and the who island of Nantucket is there to hear about it.
I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a great read that you can't seem to put down!
