"Things get more twisted at every turn, with enough lies and betrayals to fuel a whole season of soap operas...readers will be hooked."—Publishers Weekly on Elin Hilderbrand's Summer PeopleEvery summer the Newton family retreats to their beloved home on Nantucket for three months of sunshine, cookouts, and bonfires on the beach. But this summer will not be like any other. When Arch Newton, a prominent New York attorney, dies in a plane crash on his way home from a business trip, his beautiful widow, Beth, can barely keep things together. Above all, though, she decides that she must continue the family tradition of going to Nantucket, and at the same time fulfill a promise that Arch made before he died.Beth invites Marcus, the son of Arch's final and most challenging client, to spend the summer with her and her teenage twins, Winnie and Garrett, who have mixed reactions to sharing their special summer place with this stranger. Always a place of peace before, Nantucket becomes the scene of roiling emotions and turbulent passions as Marcus, Winnie, and Garrett learn about loss, first love, and betrayal. And when they stumble upon a shocking secret from Beth's past, they must keep it from destroying the family they've been trying so hard to heal.

When I first started to read this book, I thought I had found a real gem of a book and author. As the book progressed, I was disappointed. The book is well written, but I found the plot to be such a letdown. Without giving any spoilers, I found that what the twins did when they discovered "THE SECRET" was appalling and violent. It bothered me a lot. After all, "THE SECRET" was not even important and they all made such a huge deal of it. And the ending was not what I would have liked. I would like to re-write the ending so that it would suit a light summer read as opposed to this ending which belongs in a very dramatic book. I will give Elin Hilderbrand one more chance and if the book is not satisfying, I will give her up.
