Light but good summer Beach read! But it's okay, because you just nearly drowned saving his niece from a rip tide. This one was so cliche-riddent and predictable. It seems they have little in common…until Cameron Chadwick appears on the island. She creates a charm over the readers with her words which not only brings the readers attention but it also creates an amazing curiosity to the reader. Stories we can all relate to, as in Nantucket Sisters, a friendship tested again and again when two young girls from different walks of life find solace in the bond they form, only to have that friendship later threatened by betrayal.
The two main characters, Maggie and Emily, were children when the novel began and their youth and innocence made perfect sense. Before her, weathered wooden steps cut back and forth down the steep bluff to the beach. The third person narration was distracting; the story would have been more effective if written in the first person of one character or alternating chapters of various characters. Instead, I never wanted to pick it up, I too easily put it down and am relieved to be finished. In typical young boy fashion, in the early part of the story, he ignores Maggie and Emily.
My thoughts after reading this book. I have a blogging friend who also likes her books. Yet again, the male characters were so stereotypical and underdeveloped, she didn't have much to work with, did she? But is it the worst book I've ever read? The narrative of the movie is spirit of the women who used to be a lover of ship captain haunts the young couple and seduces by showing up in the mirror. I look forward to reading more books by Nancy Thayer. And then Ben's so pissed off that he refuses to meet his daughter.
When Maggie and Piper meet as girls on the Nantucket beach, they are instant best friends—even though Piper's mother would much prefer she play with the daughters of s Nancy Thayer, the New York Times bestselling author of Island Girls, tells the emotionally-charged story of two childhood friends on the tumultuous path to love and wisdom in this heartfelt ode to friendship. Readers will love this story of family and love. Neither of the two men deserved that and one misses precious years of the childs life and one never has the chance to know their child at all. What I loved about this book. Nancy Thayer is the author of nineteen novels, including Summer House, The Hot Flash Club series, Moon Shell Beach, Stepping, and Three Women At The Water's Edge.
What a great read this was. Behind her lies the grassy lawn and their large gray summer house, so different from their apartment on East Eighty-sixth in New York City. He graduated from Suwon Highschool and Aju University chemistry , and completed master's degree in horticulture at Chungnam University. The main character of the book stepping was Zelda who was similar to Nancy but she made her better, funnier, nicer and character of the novel stayed with her husband forever, But in real life she was about to be divorced and petrified about money. Nancy Thayer was interested in writing about life of an ordinary women. I would definitively say this is one to read this summer as all of Thayers books are.
Once the girls got to their teens, the book got boring and never got any better. Then the unthinkable happens: Handsome, charismatic, charming, and incredibly sexy Wall Street trader Cameron Chadwick upends both their lives and disrupts their friendship. Emily and Maggie are so different, too. Emily loves Ben and yet will they ever be together forever. So in no particular order, here's my 'That's ridiculous! Her beloved husband has been found dead, but before Irene can process this tragic news, she must confront the perplexing details of her husband's death. I was disappointed in this one and simply couldn't get past Kate Russ's style and in 4 years of 3 book a month membership I figured out how to write a review simply to try to help others to have a heads up on how terrible this narrator' style is. The years pass and you see them as they grow up.
This wonderful beach read packs a punch. With Maggie, Emily is her true self. I found the story very cute. And even though the guy married the woman that didn't have his baby, states he would do his duty but didn't love her. Emily is from a rich family that lives in New York City but visits their summer home on Nantucket. Tyler is your average geeky, freckled guy with glasses, and Maggie wants nothing to do with him despite the fact that he's her best friend.
They finally grow a part, since they are from different worlds—off to college, careers, and their own lives. I am going back to read some of her early books again and try to figure that out. I don't think I've read this before because I didn't remember any of it. The synopsis of Nantucket Sisters hinted at a love triangle, something that almost put me off reading this book entirely. Their earlier books were so engaging and well written—not sure why the drastic change. Emily was also interesting yet I found myself going back and forth on my opinion of her. No, it was a bit light for me.
