Publisher's Summary

Wedding bells are ringing, a family is reunited, and new romances are blooming - for better or for worse - in a standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Island House and Secrets in Summer.

A few years after losing her beloved husband, Alison is doing something she never thought she would do again: getting married. While placing the finishing touches on her summer nuptials, Alison is anxious to introduce her fiancé, David, to her grown daughters: Felicity, a worried married mother of two, and Jane, also married but focused on her career. The sisters have a somewhat distant relationship and Alison hopes that the wedding and the weeks leading up to the ceremony will give the siblings a chance to reconnect, as well as meet and get to know David’s grown children.

As the summer progresses, it is anything but smooth sailing. Felicity stumbles upon a terrible secret that could shatter her carefully cultivated world. Jane finds herself under the spell of her soon-to-be stepbrother, Ethan, who is as charming as he is mysterious. And even Allison is surprised (and slightly alarmed) by her new blended family. Revelations, intrigue, resentments - as the Big Day approaches, will the promise of bliss be a bust?

Against the gorgeous backdrop of the sunswept island of Nantucket, Nancy Thayer sets the stage for a walk down the aisle no one will ever forget.

So boring

Super let down. I could not wait for the story to end. Not only predictable, but totally unsatisfactory. I kept holding on for some sort of twist or turn to bring the story to life, but it just ended. thank goodness.

A good story

I thought it was a good story. I enjoyed the book. It's good if you want just to light read.

Wasted my time waiting for it to get better...

With this book, I felt like I wanted the hours back in my life that I wasted listening to this… But I kept listening thinking there would be something that would make it “worth my time” with a twist at the end even… Nothing!

Too simplistic

I generally love Nancy Thayer. I'm never expecting a Pulitzer prize novel, but it's usually enjoyable and an easy listen. I can't decide if this one is bad because of the narration or because the writing somehow comes across as oversimplified, but it's one of the few books I don't have the patience to finish. I'm about four or five chapters in and I'm giving up. I'm hoping it's not too late for a refund, but it probably is.

Accents

The so called Welsh accents portrayed by the narrator were terrible if you don’t know what a Welsh accent sounds like don’t do one at all
