Publisher's Summary

In this juicy first novel by Elin Hilderbrand, a series of personal dramas are played out during one summer at a Nantucket Beach Club. It's about the love of summer, summer love, and the special feelings we all have for that special summer place - in this case, a hotel and an island.

Mack Petersen, manager of the hotel, has been working at The Beach Club for 12 summers. Only this summer is different. His boss, the owner of the hotel, Bill Elliot, shows up in the spring with a new set of demands. His girlfriend, Maribel, is pressing Mack to get married and Vance, the African-American bellman, who has hated Mack since the day Mack stole his job 12 years ago, threatens him in a deadly scene. Mack knows something's got to give.

Love O'Donnell, the new front desk person straight from the slopes of Aspen, is desperately searching for a stranger to father her child. The bellman, Jem Crandall, who posed as Mr. November in his college calendar, is on his way to LA to break into agenting, until he falls in love with Maribel. Emotions are at a peak when a hurricane threatens to wash away The Beach Club and all it stands for.

An engrossing, sexy novel that will sweep you away to the beach any time of the year.

    "Loved this audio!"
    If you could sum up The Beach Club in three words, what would they be?

    Scenery, relationships and sequel needed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Again I liked all the characters. Each did their placement in the audio well.


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

    Lacey


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I really liked to savor the entirety of each step of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    It had a great story line; I felt like I was there.

    "Cute"

    This isn't my favorite of Erin Hildebrand books. My first read of hers was The Island which I adored. Nonetheless this was still a good book. I liked the story line and the characters. I guess there was just a little something missing to it for me.

    Story
    "Beach or no beach, an Excellent Listen!"

    This is the first of Hilderbrand's novels and it's easy to see why she became loved by many. Her books take place on the small island of Nantucket but each novel has its own plot, not an alteration of the same old story as is the case with some best-selling authors.

    This story is based in a successful family-owned hotel/beach club and the dynamics of family, employees and guests are fun and intriguing. There are many characters in the story, each unique enough in their own relationships with one another to show different facets of their personalities. Very good book, glad I came across it!
