Looking for a summer read to get immersed in and transport you to beautiful Nantucket? Grab Hilderbrand's (Beautiful Day; Summerland) latest and some sunglasses for a captivating and charming novel to devour. Dabney Kimball Beech has lived on Nantucket her whole life and prides herself on many things: her love and knowledge of all things Nantucket, her family, her work with the chamber of commerce, her cooking, and her successful matchmaking skills. Though some find her abilities intrusive, Dabney knows a destined match when she sees one-and when she does not. However, for herself, she believes she was wrong about her first love, until he comes back to Nantucket after 27 years in another country. Clendenin Hughes's presence dares Dabney to start truly to live and enjoy all the moments of life that she can as both she and her daughter, Agnes, learn that life is messy and complicated-especially when matters of the heart are involved. Verdict Here's a must-read to reignite the beauty and gift of life, love, and family.-Anne M. Miskewitch, Chicago P.L. (c) Copyright 2014.
