While written breezily, the characters are finely drawn, and pull on the heartstrings. There are inherent truths here, about love and life which launch this book to another level above the usual summer page-turners. I particularly related to the the bookish and introspective Darcy who tries to navigate some tricky romantic turf. Get out the SPF 15. Sumer is here.
Darcy Cotterill, the protagonist, is a year-round resident on Nantucket island. She lives in her beautiful childhood home which she inherited from her grandmother - the only person who provided any stability and love in her life. As in many of Thayer's novels, Nantucket is both a backdrop as well as significant "character" in the story. The storyline begins with the advent of the annual influx of vacationers and revolves around Darcy's relationships with the three families who rented adjacent properties for the summer, as well as a budding, but confusing, romance with a local carpenter. Darcy is likeable and I particularly enjoyed the multi-generational group that spontaneously evolves between the octogenarian, the teenager and the two young adult women.
If you enjoy quick, light, romantic books set in an interesting locale, then I believe you will like this book.
Darcy Cotterill is a local girl on the island of Nantucket. She is living her dream, that of being a librarian. It has been her dream since she was a little girl. It's because of her hard work and dedication to her dream that she has been able to achieve it...even through some of life's hardest challenges.
Summers on Nantucket bring lots of tourists and summer people. It's always exciting to meet the new people and what they will bring to the island.
Darcy quickly befriends Mimi, the aged grandmother here for her last hurrah, Susan, the exhausted mother of three active boys and Willow...the step-daughter of her ex-husband.
Navigating having her ex-husband and his new family next door for the entire summer will be a challenge. As secrets are revealed for the group, only time will tell if their relationships will survive the truth.
If you are looking for a beach read that will prep you for summertime, this is the book for you. The characters in Secrets of Summer are fantastic and so developed you would think they were actually real people. They were definitely my people!
This book drew me in from the very beginning and I couldn't wait to get back to it when I had to put it down. It's a fairly quick read...it took me two days or approximately 6 hours. Everything was perfectly descriptive and I was easily swept in to the gardens and time at the beach as if I was actually there.
Lamplight Review and Promotion is giving Secrets of Summer 4 stars and we can't wait to see what Miss Nancy Thayer has up next!
Darcy Cotterill is 30, divorced, and lives in a house in Nantucket that her grandmother willed to her. She happens to be a children’s librarian at the Nantucket Atheneum. She normally makes it a point to not interact with the summer renters, but she quickly finds herself drawn to neighbors in three adjacent houses. On one side of her is 89-year old Mimi, who is a stitch and willing to try anything. She is accompanied by her musicologist grandson, Clive. One the other side is Susan Brueckner, with her husband and three out-of-control young sons. And behind Darcy is her ex-husband Boyz, with his new wife and 14-year old step-daughter, Willow. Darcy, Mimi, Susan and Willow become a foursome for the summer, sharing fun, secrets, and also, helping each other through problems. But nobody can help Darcy decide what to do about her love life. She has got to make that decision on her own.
I was surprised at how many lessons there are to be learned in Secrets in Summer. Things like opening yourself up to love also opens yourself up to hurt. Or that friends who only spend a short time in your life can still have a profound impact on you. Or that each marriage has its own set of rules.
There is really a lot to enjoy and chew on with Nancy Thayer’s new novel, and I am glad that I didn’t give up on her.
