Thirty-six year old Sophie Anderson knows her marriage is in trouble when she sees something on her husband's calendar that says something like "talk to Sophie about divorce". When he admits to sleeping with a colleague at work Sophie is lost and unsure of what her next steps should be. That is until an old friend contacts her about a summer rental on Nantucket. Sophie dips into her "Mad Money" and books The Guest Cottage for a two-month vacation for her and her two kids. Sophie and the kids are just getting settled in when thirty year old Trevor Black and his young son arrive at The Guest Cottage. Trevor made arrangements for the summer rental with his buddy after Leo's therapist suggested a change of scenery might help Leo cope a little easier with the death of his mother. Once Trevor and Sophie decide that the other is not a serial killer they decide to share The Guest Cottage for the summer. Soon they settle into an easy routine of lazy summer activities. The kids get along so well and the chemistry between Trevor and Sophie is undeniable. Will they give into temptation even though the odds are stacked against them?
Can you believe that the 2015 Beach Reads season has started? I am completely blown away by the thought that summer is almost here and the year is almost half over. And what is summer without a Nantucket novel from Nancy Thayer? I think The Guest Cottage is one of her better novels in most recent memories. And I think that is the case because there are so many different variables in play that keep it from being completely predictable. The age factor is one of those variables. Sophie is six years older than Trevor and it is rare to find that in women's fiction. There are other factors, too. Like Sophie is still technically married. In the end things worked out the way they should have and it really does make for the perfect book to take to the beach.
Bottom line - the "Beach Reads" season is officially upon us and what better way to welcome the season than to pick up the newest Nancy Thayer novel.

I am an avid reader who loves to read and will read anything put in front of me. I started this blog long before Goodreads
I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
