Island Girls by Nancy Thayer

Island Girls by Nancy Thayer

Rory Randall is dead and he left his Nantucket house to his three daughters, Arden, Meg and Jenny, on one condition: they need to live together in the house for a whole summer.  Arden and Meg were “exiled” from the house by their stepmother, Jenny’s mother, when they were young.  This will be the first time the half-sisters have seen their step-sister since the summer they were sent away twenty or more years ago.  Can they survive a whole summer together?  Can the issues in their lives, and between them, be resolved by these island girls?

This is a great beach read that would be enjoyable to read or listen to.  (I listened and the voices were distinct and fit the characters well.)  Everything you expect in a beach read is here: a beach (Nantucket), women with life obstacles they need to (and do) overcome, its summer, and it all ends amazingly happy.  Is it totally unbelievable?  I think so, family problems are rarely resolved so quickly, but that didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the listen.
