On My Bookshelf [The Love Season]

While The Love Season is different than the other novels penned by Elin Hilderbrand, Nantucket (one of my personal favorite places) still serves as the setting and almost a character in and of itself.  Quite simply, the island is stunningly beautiful, although a bit standoffish, and is the perfect backdrop for the story.

Amazon says:
It's a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island.  Over the course of the next 24 hours, two lives will be transformed forever.

Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade.  This all changes with a phone call from Marguerite's goddaughter, Renata Knox.  Marguerite has not seen Renata since the death of Renata's mother, Candace Harris Knox, fourteen years earlier.  And now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiance, she takes the opportunity, against her father's wishes, to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her mother's life -- and death.  But the events of the day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned.

Welcome to The Love Season -- a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island of Nantucket, as well and Manhattan, Paris and Morocco.  Elin Hilderbrand's most ambitious novel to date chronicles the famous couplings of real lives: love and friendship, food and wine, deception and betrayal -- and forgiveness and healing.

While admitedly it took me a bit to get into the book and I didn't love the ending, it as an overall good read, especially poolside.  As always, I'd love to know what's on your bookshelf!!  I've been so happy to get so much reading in this summer - and can only hope it continues as the craziness of the school year sets in quickly.

Happy Reading!

  1. I need to get a new book for some upcoming travel. I think I'll get an EH novel...maybe not this one though. Sounds like some of her others are probably better.😉


Thanks so much for buzzing by! I look forward to hearing from you!
