I really liked this book. It was a very fast read - or listen. I listened to it on a playaway. It was nice since I was traveling.

Island Girls
Author
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.

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.
