My Thoughts 

The Hotel Nantucket is Elin HIlderbrand’s latest offering, offering further proof of her regal status of being a queen for consistently writing fantastic and engaging books. 

I look forward to E.H.’s novels any time I hear that a new one is being released. And this one is such a fantastic summer read. It pulled me in immediately, with Hilderbrand’s charming style of writing, like if you were sitting on a porch with some girlfriends, having some drinks, etc., and just talking and laughing. She really does tell a story. 

This kept me riveted and I devoured it every time I had the time to read (and sometimes when I didn’t). I loved the plot and the storylines. My only issue is that with so many characters you don’t get to spend as much time reading them as you do with a smaller cast. I would have loved to read more about everyone. 

A definite recommendation.

“The queen of beach reads” (New York Magazine) delivers an immensely satisfying page-turner in this tale about a summer of scandal at a storied Nantucket hotel.

Fresh off a bad breakup with a longtime boyfriend, Nantucket sweetheart Lizbet Keaton is desperately seeking a second act. When she’s named the new general manager of the Hotel Nantucket, a once Gilded Age gem turned abandoned eyesore, she hopes that her local expertise and charismatic staff can win the favor of their new London billionaire owner, Xavier Darling, as well as that of Shelly Carpenter, the wildly popular Instagram tastemaker who can help put them back on the map. And while the Hotel Nantucket appears to be a blissful paradise, complete with a celebrity chef-run restaurant and an idyllic wellness center, there’s a lot of drama behind closed doors. The staff (and guests) have complicated pasts, and the hotel can’t seem to overcome the bad reputation it earned in 1922 when a tragic fire killed nineteen-year-old chambermaid Grace Hadley. With Grace gleefully haunting the halls, a staff harboring all kinds of secrets, and Lizbet’s own romantic uncertainty, is the Hotel Nantucket destined for success or doom?  

Filled with the emotional depth and multiple points of view that characterize Hilderbrand’s novels (
The Blue Bistro, Golden Girl) as well as an added dash of Roaring Twenties history, The Hotel Nantucket offers something for everyone in this compelling summer drama.
