    It’s a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island. Over the course of the next 24 hours, two lives will be transformed forever. Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade. This all changes with a phone call from Marguerite’s goddaughter, Renata Knox. Marguerite has not seen Renata since the death of Renata’s mother, Candace Harris Knox, 14 years earlier. And now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiancé, she takes the opportunity, against her father’s wishes, to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her mother’s life - and death.

    Story

    After listening to 3 of her books, I've come to expect that every single one will feature 1. Nantucket 2. food obsession (one character is always a chef, restaurant owner or amazing chef/foodie) 3. tragic death (someone's gonna die, or just died, or died years ago, tragically and someone else is haunted by it) and 4. lots and lots of alcohol (champagne, scotch, beer - it's always consumed to excess). I like her books, and the characters are fun, but...she needs to get some new schtick.

    In addition, the narrator was awful, for several reasons: First, she made the character of Margo sound about 95, and she also made Miles sound like he was about 11. In addition: incredibly pretentious way of speaking. What's with throwing in the letter H where none exists? "Porter" pronounced "Port-Her" and "meeting" pronounced "Meet-Hing." Sooo annoying. And, while on the one hand, she pronounced every French word with an incredibly pretentious overly French dialect, on the other hand, she inexplicably pronounced "Hermes" as "Her-meez" instead of the way it is suppose to be pronounced, which is "Air-mez" What narrator wouldn't know the proper pronunciation of a famous designer?
