Publisher's Summary

The ties between women can run as deep as the ocean - but so can the secrets.

For 20 years, Kayla, Antoinette, and Val have performed their own special summer ritual. Once a year, the old friends put aside their daily, separate lives to drink champagne, swap stories, and swim naked under the Nantucket stars. But on one of those bonding nights, one of their trio swims out from the shore and doesn't return. After the surviving friends emerge from their grief, they realize that the repercussions of their loss go far beyond their little circle, and they begin to uncover layers of secrets - and their connections to each other - that were never revealed on the beach. What has made their friendship strong now has the power to destroy - their marriages, families, even themselves.

    "Ending a huge disappointment"

    The story was interesting but the ending was enormously disappointing. It had more holes than a slice of Swiss cheese. Ruined the book.

    Story
    "Overemotional and melodramatic characters"

    The ages of the characters do not fit with their voice or actions. The son acts like an entitled, spoiled 14 year old as opposed to the alleged 18. The 3 women behave at best like 20-something college sorority girls. If you like stories where babies are the cure all then this is for you.

    Story
    "Excellent story line in beautiful Nantucket!"
    Would you listen to Nantucket Nights again? Why?

    Definitely because I couldn't put it down and the second time around I find things I have missed or forgotten. It's actually a fascinating read of many twist and turns in relationships and friendships which totally held my interest.

    I began reading Elin Hildebrand a few weeks ago now I find myself searching and reading all her books. Her descriptions in scenery want me to live on Nantucket Island.


    What other book might you compare Nantucket Nights to and why?

    Scenery wise I thing The Blue Bistro and the same for relationships though I found the Blue Bistro lighter reading.


    Which character – as performed by Christina Delaine – was your favorite?

    I had no favorite characters; each had their own role and place.Christine Delaine is an amazing narrator! Each charge tour is distinct especially well done in Antoinette!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending..it was a great ending and still allows for a sequel.


    Any additional comments?

    I am enchanted with this author! Elin does a beautiful job of creating characters of reality and she has a way of making me fall into the book becoming a part of it. It's easy reading or listening and "most" of all she gets my attention in the 1st chapter that I find to be an excellent author!

    Story
    "Excellent"
    What did you love best about Nantucket Nights?

    The plot, the narrative, the character development.


    What does Christina Delaine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked her interpretation of the characters. Brought substance and life to them.


    If you could take any character from Nantucket Nights out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Val. She seemed so easy to let go of her friendship and values! I would want to speak to a person as such face to face.


    Any additional comments?

    Really really enjoyed listening

    "It's Hard For Me to Rate This One"

    It's hard for me to give this book a rating. I finished it, so at least it delivered on some level. However, Elin Hilderbrand seems to have a knack for creating characters that I do not like. I didn't like any of the 3 women main characters in this book, but I stuck with the book to see what happened, and because a friend of mine recommended the book. I started another book written by the same author, and about 1/3 of the way through, again, I decided I didn't like any of the characters, didn't care what happened to them, and didn't finish the book.

    I don't think I will be spending any more money on Elin Hilderbrand books.
