Books For The Road - Island Girls by Nancy Thayer

Nancy Thayer is a new author for me to read. I grabbed Island Girls from the library's digital section to download for our trip to Grand Cayman. It was on the recommended reading list from the staff. The story line was intriguing and so I took a chance. I'm glad I did. It was a good read.

Charming ladies’ man Rory Randall dies with one last trick up his sleeve: His will includes a calculating clause mandating a summer-long reunion for his daughters, all from different marriages—that is, if they hope to inherit his posh Nantucket house. The three have a history and jealousy and rivalry play a part. The characters are nicely developed and the setting, Nantucket Island, was intriguing. To a travel addict, it's like offering another piece of chocolate to a chocoholic.

Even if you can't travel this summer, it would be a good book to take you away to a lovely place and enjoy the company of a couple girls who find they really do have a bond. Definitely a good book for the road or the backyard lounge chair.
