The Love Season

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. But the events of the day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned.

Welcome to The Love Season - a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island of Nantucket, as well as Manhattan, Paris, and Morocco. Elin Hilderbrand’s most ambitious novel to date chronicles the famous couplings of real lives: love and friendship, food and wine, deception and betrayal - and forgiveness and healing.

    "Didn't like the ending"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Ending was terrible


    Has The Love Season turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Maybe not sure


    Did Christina Delaine do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She made Margo sound old and Daniel sound weak. Did good with Renatta


    Did The Love Season inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "Nice!"

    I really enjoyed Elin's approach to this story, the characters were uniquely interwoven with each other, and the ending was great. A very creative approach. Very open ended in what would unfold for each of them, but not in a way to set up a sequel or series, just great writing style. It was fun to see what my mind wanted to do with the characters. I was delighted to be brought into the story that way. The "romance" of the Island & "fine dining/wine" was wonderfully unfolded in the story line.

    Story
    "A love season to remember.."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, only to some one who is looking for a low-tide story.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    wasn't surprising


    What three words best describe Christina Delaine’s performance?

    Professional, quite but sometimes boring.


    Do you think The Love Season needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, The story line isn't designed for that. It would be too much.
