Publisher's Summary

"The queen of beach books" (The Star-Ledger) returns to the shores of Nantucket in a novel about one memorable summer when flirtations flourish, family dramas play out, and scandalous secrets surface.

Memorial Day weekend means that seasonal visitors have descended on the glamorous island of Nantucket. For year-round resident Darcy Cotterill, it means late-night stargazing in the backyard of the beautiful house she grew up in and inherited from her beloved grandmother. It's also Darcy's chance to hit the beach and meet her new summertime neighbors. But the last person the thirty-year-old librarian expects to see staying next door is her ex-husband, Boyz, along with his wife, Autumn, and stepdaughter, Willow.

Darcy must also navigate the highs and lows of a new romantic relationship with local carpenter Nash Forester even as she becomes smitten with handsome vacationer Clive Rush, a musicologist in town to write a book and visit family. And she finds herself pulled into the concerns of Boyz, Autumn, a charming elderly neighbor, and an at-risk teen.

As the season nears its end, Darcy must decide her next move: retreating to the comforts of her steady and secure island life, or risking it all for a chance at true happiness.

    "a cute book but I didnt get as caught up in it"

    wish it had alittle more substance but it could be because it was an audio book. sometimes books are better to read than listen to.

    "Secrets in Summer"

    Great satisfying story. Lots of twists and turns and important interactions with characters from ages 14 to 90. I think this makes the book realistic and warm. This is a good, cozy listen.

    Story
    "Narration Ruined It"

    I probably would've liked the book more if it hadn't been for the narration. While the narrator can do many voices her male voices were just awful. I felt that her portrayal of Darcy was goofy and don't understand why she had a midwestern accent. In fact, why didn't any of the characters sound like they were from Massachusetts?

    The story itself isn't too bad but ends up being pretty corny with lots of boring, unnecessary dialogue. The narration just sent it over the top in sappiness.

    "Male voices"

    Did not like the male voices.... killed the mood and the romance and made it hard to envision the real male characters. Should just have used her normal voice.

    "Enjoyable read"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are engaging and the story keeps moving along. A little too "sweet" for my taste, but was a decent read. The ending was terrible--simply patched up to make everyone happy after after sort of thing. Not much thought, but still wasn't a bad "beach" read!
