    Heat Wave
    Since I spent much of my youth on Nantucket many years ago, I was truly interested in reading Nancy Thayer's new book. I was disappointed, initially, that this was going to be a bit of a "fluff" book: 30 something women who lived well on Nantucket socializing and stealing other women's husbands. However, there was more to the story - one of loss, friendships lost and redeemed and love given and received. This is a light, "breezy" type of beach book that is quickly and easily read.
  • Patricia S. (New Canaan, CT)


    Good beach read
    I read the book in 1 1/2 days as it moved along very quickly, and the characters seemed more like friends than characters on the pages. Love, loss, and love again in Nantucket where the winters can be harsh and you need true friends but the summers are wonderful.

    Nancy Thayer does it again!

    Another Winner from Nancy Thayer
    Nancy Thayer has done it again with a wonderful story bringing Nantucket to life. A perfect read for a lazy afternoon this book addresses friendships, loss, infidelity and guilt. This is the kind of book I enjoy as respite after a particularly heavy duty book group read. I found it hard to put down and didn't want it to end but I hope there will be more from this author in the future.
