Book Review: Secrets in Summer by Nancy Thayer

3⭐️’s from me32027278

Goodreads Summary: “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.”

My Review:

This is a very easy summer read, if you are looking for a quick story to escape to while enjoying the sunny weather. It is a cutesy story about finding yourself. A resident librarian of Nantucket has interesting neighbors this summer, neighbors who make it evident that she must finally confront her past in order to move forward. The characters are lovable and almost like a little summer family. However, I found this book very unmemorable in the end; it didn’t leave me thinking about much of anything. I guess that’s what makes this review a short one?
