This is the first book out of three, and I was so excited when the second came out. I am reading the second book now. Summer Girls is a great book to read especially during the summer.

Island Girls

Nancy Thayer
Review
I love to read 'beach books' and I enjoyed this book because the setting was Nantucket. I also find Nancy Thayer books entertaining. The plot kept me interested because three step-sisters had to find a way to live with each other for the three summer months. Their father's will specified that they could not sell the house until they all lived together.
