Nancy Thayer’s THE NANTUCKET SISTERS, a story of two girls from childhood which meet again years later as adults for a complex relationship. Set in Nantucket, Maggie and Emily meet as little girls on Nantucket beach and become best friends. They are from different worlds and backgrounds, where they meet every summer with a shared love of the island (one lives year round). The two imaginative friends, create a magical world of their own, dreaming and planning their futures. Emma’s mom desire is for her daughter to play with the rich and famous, and daughters of the more affluent. Maggie is a poor seamstress’ daughter. They finally grow a part, since they are from different worlds—off to college, careers, and their own lives. Emma (Emily) falls for Maggie’s brother, Ben—then there is the handsome, charming and sexy Wall Street trader, Cameron Chadwick, which changes both girls’ relationship. A complicated relationship of secrets, greed, money, and friendship. A complex saga of twists and turns. In summary, the stunning front cover draws you in; however, unfortunately the novel did not live up. Listened to the audio book and the narrator, Kate Rudd had the most annoying voice, which made it difficult through the book. (I pre-ordered, and when doing so, you do not get to sample the audio); definitely returned the audio book. Combined with strained and unlikable characters, with no emotional substance or consistency—does not make for a good combination. I dislike writing poor reviews; however, have to be honest here. Not sure what is going on with the two much loved Nantucket writers (Nancy Thayer and Elin Hilderbrand). I have read ALL their books, and the last few books have been lacking and very disappointing. Their earlier books were so engaging and well written—not sure why the drastic change. Unfortunately, not able to recommend this one, or the last few. Please bring back the older style

I enjoyed this book, but I would certainly put it in the Chick Lit category.

Good characters and a good story of true friendship which is rare

First thing, that I have to bring up, is what is up with the author's name being bigger than the book's title; are you selling the author or the book itself? The only thing saving this cover is the beach. This is the story of Maggie and Emily. Maggie lives on Nantucket all year long whereas Emily only lives on Nantucket during the summer it is her families second home. So I am sure you guessed it Maggie is poor and Emily is rich, normally wouldn't have mentioned this but it is a huge part of this story, The Haves and The Have-Nots. But no matter what Maggie and Emily are the best of summer friends, they are Nantucket sisters. Life unfolds at a rapid rate on the pages, each page turn seems to add a few years on to the girl's ages. Pretty soon they are all grown-up but a chance encounter with the same man, Emily with him in New York and Maggie with him in Nantucket, ends with both of them pregnant. But Emily has also been seeing Maggie's older brother Ben, So who is the baby's daddy???? Eventually through a lot of living the girls get into contact again and life seemed to be working itself out so that they both could be happy. The thing that really confused me in the book is that Maggie never tells Emily how her baby's father is!! Very curious. A enjoyable read that I didn't have to stress my brain out to understand which is what I needed when I read this and it is also probably why that this book was on many summer beach read lists. Discover: A friendship that withstood a tremendous amount of that thing called life but still survived the storm. Three Stars means this to me: A solid reading experience. Enjoyable, well-written and satisfying. Marked by three or four issues, all-in-all not too shabby. Most books rank on this level for me. I'm just a middle of the road type person.

This book had a good story, but not particularly well-written.  I liked the characters and description of Nantucket.  But I feel like the author stream-lined the story, as if it was a movie that had been edited to keep it under two hours.  It also got wrapped up a little too perfectly, unrealistically.  I'm not sure I will pursue reading any more of her books.

Not one of my favorites but a good beach read while staying in my own bit of paradise here on NC's Outer Banks.
