Secrets in Summer by Nancy Thayer
For me, a new Nancy Thayer book means summer is on its way! I LOVE reading about her world on Nantucket and always look forward to her books. Secrets in Summer is her newest book and I love it!!!!
Secrets in Summer by Nancy Thayer introduces us to Darcy, a year round resident and librarian on Nantucket. Darcy has been living in the house left to her by her grandmother and hanging out with a long term group of friends.
She is happy. When summer starts though all the houses around her fill up with summertime neighbors. Darcy has always kept them at a distance, but this year is different and not just because her ex-husband shows up next door with his wife
and her daughter. Slowly Darcy is drawn into the world of her summer neighbors and has lost her distance. She also is dating Nate, a carpenter on the island and she is feeling sparks. Of course things get muddled and not everything happens
as expected, but that’s what happens with summer on Nantucket.
The book reeled me in, I so wanted to be one of her neighbors hanging out with her and enjoying the beaches, sun and friends. Sometimes
lines blur and it is hard to know which way to turn, but Darcie keeps moving forward, trying her best, knowing the summer is fast coming to an end. I loved Darcie and her “gang” of friends. I wanted the book to end appropriately for
her and found myself nervous a couple of times!
Secrets in Summer by Nancy Thayer is a great summer read!!
