I chose Nantucket Nights as a book I thought was going to be sort of an easy, light read. To the contrary, I could not put it down. The scandals and betrayals that change everyone's lives made the book a real page turner. The characters are so real and although the story setting was an island where everyone knows each other - the town that I live in all though not that small - is a town where scandals like this happen every day. It is a story of frienships, marraiges and the choices we make in everyday life. The book reminds us of how sometimes things are not as they seem and what relationships we should value. I would recommend this book as a must read. I have already passed the book along to three other people.

This story was very enjoyable to read. It had some mystery and kept you turning the pages wondering what was going to happen next. It was much shorter than the author's other books, but I enjoyed it all the same. I started reading Barefoot and since then have started reading all of Elin Hilderbrands's books. I really enjoy her style of writing and her setting of Nantucket. If you enjoy a nice relaxing read with a story about families and friends and relationships, this is a great book for you.

    Awful, No redeeming Value

    Waste of time-Disgusted expression throughout-read first 1/3, skimmed rest-if you have children, especially teens-this would not be entertaining-3 women, friends for 20 yrs-main character in weak midlife doubt phase is betrayed by her friends, one who seduces and gets pregnant by her teenage son and in sync w/the other friend proceeds to set her up for murdering one of them to ck out on her past deeds and ruins her life. Husband is no help-was in on most of the info and did not share it w/his wife -Not a single adult character w/one redeeming quality. The absolute worst of the three novels I have read by her but surely, another Hilderbrand slam to Nantucket

    If there was a way to give this book a 0, I would have chosen it

    If there was a way to give this book a 0, I would have chosen it. Absolutely hated the story. For women who are "friends", these people treat each other with no respect or loyalty. The husband is a dud too. Total disappointment.

    Don't waste your time.

    Even for a summer beach read. Lame, contrived, stupid. Buy some toilet paper instead. It will be more useful. What a half-assed effort.
