4.0 out of 5 starsSex of Abby's baby
Reviewed in the United States on September 6, 2019
I enjoyed the two books and don't want to give away the story but would like some clarification. At the end of Nantucket Inn Jeff proclaims he and Abby are have a baby boy. Then when you start reading Nantucket neighbors Abby says she is having a girl! How did the sex change from one book to another????
5.0 out of 5 starsUpdate on the Hodges Family and missing B&B guest
Reviewed in the United States on September 1, 2019
Absolutely love this series; Lisa Hodges and her children Abby, Kate, Kristen and son Chase all share a little of what is happening in their lives; while Lisa is enjoying operating her B&B. Kate and Jack are now living together, Kristen finally gave the boot to Sean and is enjoying her new neighbor Tyler an author, Abby is awaiting her baby, and son Chase is dating Lauren who he had a crush on in high school; things are about to change when Tom Smith, who paid in advance for a room never showed up and Lauren only is dating Chase to get him to work with a developer who is known to cut corners. From page 1 you are pulled into the family and as your turning the last page you are anxiously awaiting the next book.
came to me at just the right time. The date of this review is May 2020. Most future readers will recognize the period of time as somewhere in the Norovirus Pandemic of 2020, with an uncertain ending.
Any reader familiar with my many Amazon reviews will immediately realize what a radical departure this series is for me as my usual reading entertainment runs more along the lines of military and post apocalyptic fiction. It would be difficult to find a bigger genre difference from those styles than the "Nantucket Beach Plum Cove" series.
This time period of global history has been, and continues to be, the most shocking and awful of nearly the last century. Trying to escape the daily, sometimes hourly, barrage of horrible news and statistics is almost impossible.
Then along comes Pamela M. Kelley's gentle and downright soothing collection of familial fiction, the stories of the Hughes women and their loves and lives. Ms Kelley's writing wraps you in a safe, secure mental refuge that you'll hunger for, seeking a much needed respite from the flood of negativity we're currently being drowned in.
It's 2:27 AM, EDT , and I just finished book 2 of the Nantucket Beach series and I won't waste one minute diving right back into Ms Kelley's beautifully drawn, fully realized creations. I'm treating these books as vital, mental vacations from the nearly overwhelming headlines we currently face. Join me. (Thank you, Pamela!)

What a wonderful book!!! The storyline was interesting and the characters strong. This family has a lot of love for one another and for friends. So glad that Chase finally found his true love. I am truly looking forward to the next book in this series. Pamela Kelley is a talented writer; glad I found her. This is a book that I can freely recommend to all.
5.0 out of 5 starsA great description of Nantucket, makes you feel you are there on the island.

Thoroughly enjoyed book 2 of the series. Nantucket neighbors picked up where the first book left off. Enjoyed Lisa and all of her family. You feel like you are starting to get to know each of them. Love how love grows with the most unexpected people in the story. A must read. Short but very sweet and now can’t wait for the next book in the series. Enjoyed both books so far !

Lisa Hodges is concerned about her only son Chase. His sisters Abby, Kate and Kristen are also concerned. Chase has always been open and happy and kept in touch with everyone. Now, he is seldom heard from and secretive about who he is going out with. When it is discovered that he is dating Lauren they don't have a good feeling. When in school, years ago, Lauren dropped Chase flat with no warning. He was crushed to say the least. Now he is going out with her again. She is nothing like the girls he usually goes out with and totally opposite of Chase. Beth, Chase's office manager, has crushed on Chase since she started working for him three years ago. Chase is very thankful for Beth. She keeps his business and office running smoothly and doesn't know what he would do without her. Will he finally see her, really see her??? I really loved this book and hope you will too. Although it is part of a series it can be read as a standalone.
I gave this 3 stars simply because I love book series and I like the characters but there are too many errors. Not sure if it’s editing or not, but probably. I am surprised that I’ve not read this in any other review. In the 1st and 2nd book many annoying errors/contradictions. In one chapter it would say one thing then two or three chapter in it would say something different. But my biggest problem was with timelines. In book one, Abby found out she was pregnant a week or so before Christmas, the story went to end of June (meaning she was over 6months) Kate and Jack were just moving in together. In book two, Kate and Jack were living together but now Abby was barely 4 months, and her due date was December 25th ( we learned at the end of the book) that makes her pregnant for over a year!! However the characters are very likeable , but as if life in this day and age, it’s living together rather than marriage, and sex is easy come easy go. Chase is sleeping with Lauren then sleeping with Beth, then they move in together.
