Summer People
Summer People: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand
Summer People by Elin Hilderbrand Every summer the Newton family retreats to their beloved home on Nantucket for three months of sunshine, cookouts, and bonfires on the beach. But this summer will not be like any other. When Arch Newton, a prominent New York attorney, dies in a plane crash on his way home from a business trip, his beautiful widow, Beth, can barely keep things together. Above all, though, she decides that she must continue the family tradition of going to Nantucket, and at the same time fulfill a promise that Arch made before he died. Beth invites Marcus, the son of Arch's final and most challenging client, to spend the summer with her and her teenage twins, Winnie and Garrett, who have mixed reactions to sharing their special summer place with this stranger. Always a place of peace before, Nantucket becomes the scene of roiling emotions and turbulent passions as Marcus, Winnie, and Garrett learn about loss, first love, and betrayal. And when they stumble upon a shocking secret from Beth's past, they must keep it from destroying the family they've been trying so hard to heal.

I was expecting more explosive outcomes for these characters & in the end felt no resolution. Elin Hilderbrand might not be right for me.

Beth & her twin 17yos Garrett and Winnie, are going to Nantucket as usual but this time w/o husband/father Arch, a lawyer, who just died. Just before his death, he invited a client's son, Marcus, to go with them. He, also 17, has a book deal for the story of his Mother the murderer & the summer to get started.

This wasn‘t quite the fluffy beach read I was expecting, but it was good. Set in Nantucket in the summertime, this is about families dealing with different kinds of loss. It‘s about choices and about consequences. It dealt with some serious subject matter, but still managed to fill like a light summer read. 3 1/2 stars.

I‘ve gotten most of the patching and edging done, and I‘m loving how the color is looking on the walls already! 💜🎨🎧 #AudioPainting

Stacy_31 So pretty! We have a purple accent wall in the living room, and it‘s so cheerful to look at. 💜 1y
vkois88 Gorgeous! I think I'm going to be doing a similar color in my room, at least an accent wall!! 1y
GypsyKat @whatshesreadingnow @Stacy_31 @vkois88 Thank you! I must have seen a hundred shades of purple at least before settling on this one. 💜😆 (edited) 1y

Since I‘m inside painting my living room and NOT out at a beach, I‘m listening to a beachy audiobook. 🏖

tracey38 I wish I were at the beach and not at work. 1y
