Wedding bells are ringing, a family is reunited, and new love is blooming—for better or worse—in this captivating novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Island House and Secrets in Summer.
A few years after losing her beloved husband, Alison is doing something she never thought she would do again: getting married. While placing the finishing touches on her summer nuptials, Alison is anxious to introduce her fiancé, David, to her grown daughters: Felicity, a worried married mother of two, and Jane, also married but focused on her career. The sisters have a somewhat distant relationship and Alison hopes that the wedding and the weeks leading up to the ceremony will give the siblings a chance to reconnect, as well as meet and get to know David’s grown children.
As the summer progresses, it is anything but smooth sailing. Felicity stumbles upon a terrible secret that could shatter her carefully cultivated world. Jane finds herself under the spell of her soon-to-be stepbrother, Ethan, who is as charming as he is mysterious. And even Alison is surprised (and slightly alarmed) by her new blended family. Revelations, intrigue, resentments—as the Big Day approaches, will the promise of bliss be a bust?
Against the gorgeous backdrop of the sunswept island of Nantucket, Nancy Thayer sets the stage for a walk down the aisle no one will ever forget.

This was a vacation in a book… The setting was brought to life so well I felt as though I was there… playing on the beach, dining with the family, and preparing for the wedding….
This book really was not a romance… it was about Allison and the relationship she had with her daughters Jane and Felicity…. it was about Allison and David blending there two families together in preparation for their pending nuptials… it was about Jane and Felicity’s relationships with their husbands…. it was about life, changing, and growing together or growing apart….
Allison was a fabulous matriarch, and I wasn’t always quite sure that David deserves her…. I really liked Jane and Felicity and I loved how their relationship got so much stronger throughout the summer…. didn’t always agree with choices that were made, but I was happy with the ultimate outcome… David‘s children on the other hand, we’re not quite so likable…. Poppy was such a spoiled brat, however she did redeem herself in the end… and Ethan was just your typical selfish playboy….
This was just a lovely read a breath of fresh air… The perfect beach read or the perfect read when you wish you were at the beach…
Strongly recommend to fans of women’s fiction with some fabulous characters….*** thank you so much to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***
