I became interested in Elin Hilderbrand's books this summer because the setting is Nantucket Island. It makes you feel like you're at the beach and can visualize the island. The Beach Club is about a hotel run by the same people for many years and a lot of the same vacationers come back every year. There is a lot of typical every day drama and issues that they have to deal with, which makes you want to keep reading to see what happens in their lives. I plan to read all of Elin's novels that take place in Nantucket since I enjoyed the first one so much.

A nice story about a group of friends who are very close but go through some difficult times that lead to distrust among them. I like Elin's novels because they are suspenseful until the end.
