      CAUTION SPOILERS NO No,no,no,no,no.I just finished this book and feel like throwing it through a wall What a waste of a perfectly good Sunday afternoon I don t like to give a book a one star rating but I had no choice on this one I am so frustrated and irritated right now I hope that this is a new author or either her first book and she s developed a lot technique since writing this one because this book was so poorly written I am shocked.The 3 main characters were not likeablet in the least Ka [...]

      I would say that I hate this book, but that would give this story credit for invoking too strong of an emotion The back cover of the book was intriguing, but it stops there The three main characters had the potential to be very interesting but instead, Kayla is a self pitying whiner, Val is nothing but a cold selfish bitch, Antoinette who had the most potential was a closed empty shell, and all three are pathetic I find it impossible that three friends would ever commit the actions in this book, [...]

      After having loved Hilderbrand s books, Silver Girl, Barefoot, The Island, etc I am on a mission to read all of Hilderbrand s books Which led me to Nantucket Nights and just like her others this book did not disappoint Despite having fewer characters, fewer pages, and fewer parallel stories, this book was a far complex book then some of her others This novel is an intricately woven story of family, of friendship, and of our perceptions of the truth It is the story of instincts and judgments, an [...]

    4. Kelly (TheWellReadRedhead) says:

      I was all set to give this book 4 stars, until the ending I was soooo frustrated by it Let me get this straightyour 2 best friends frame you for murder, one of them had an affair with your 18 yr old son and got pregnant, and in the end you get the warm fuzzies and everything s okay Not in my world, ladyFORE the ending, I was really engaged the plot moves along at a quick clip, and leaves you wanting everytime you put it down But that ending, mann t get over that This was my first Hilderbrand no [...]

    5. Lori W says:

      So far, meh Fine for a library book, but she seems pretty formulaic, even for chick lit Nantucket affairs hot contractor husband a dash of real estate porn We ll see though.Finished it, and I still agree with all of the above plus a hurried, impractical ending that didn t really make sense with the characters established personalities selfish, un relatable characters unexplained plot pointsIn all fairness, I would actually give this book 1.5 stars, not 1.

    6. Cindy says:

      I see that all my friends really liked this book I must be the odd one Some of the things that happened in this book I thought were totally off kilter and not something I could imagine the characters, as Hilderbrand portrayed them, doing I have loved the other books I ve read by this author I gave them all 4 stars If you re trying to decide which one of her books to start out with, my suggestion would be not to start with this one I recommend The Blue Bistro now that was a really good book

    7. Marleen says:

      If these three women, Kayla, Antoinette and Val, call what they had for twenty years friendship , then they must have had a very delusional concept of what friendship represents.It seems to be a recurring subject matter in Elin Hilderbrand s books to have long time friends betray each other It s not the first story I read by this author that deals with the sensitive subject of friends deeply betraying each other beyond repair Personally I dislike this subject if it s going to be the main thread [...]

    8. Diane says:

      This book is based on the friendship of three women Kayla, Val and Antoinette They have been friends for many years and once a year they get together to go night swimming in the ocean and share secrets On this particular night, one of the friends goes missing After this the friendship implodes and secrets are revealed I was along for the ride for most of the story, but the ending was a complete disappointment to me I just felt let down by it, there was no real closure in my mind What these women [...]

      Nantucket Nights by Elin Hilderbrand Oh my, what a train wreck this book was And like they say, I just couldn t look away Why do I find other people s misery so fascinating And it s not the misery loves company, theory, because I am never miserable Of course it is fictional misery, but nonetheless.I could not put this puppy down Kayla, Val and Antoinette have been best friends for 20 years and every year on the Friday of Labor Day weekend they go out at midnight to the beach for what they call N [...]

    10. Cherice says:

      Whoa I read this one fast I wanted to keep reading and find out but was also hesitant to finish it When I like books I don t want them to end I am always nervous about the ending Will it satisfy me Will it end like I want it to end or will it leave me feeling empty I liked this story Three friends meet once a year at the beach to enjoy lobster and champagne, take a swim and share secrets Fun, right What s better than that The simplicity of it all comes to a screeching halt when one of them goes [...]

    11. Melissa says:

      I was really enjoying this book until I got to the end The ending was a huge disappointment.

    12. Rachel Defrank says:

      Love all Elin Hilderbrand books for an easy, girly, summer read.

    13. Shannon Bradley says:

      This book had me constantly wondering and guessing Still not sure how I felt about the ending though.

    14. Michelle says:

      Different than other Elin Hilderbrand books I ve read I enjoyed the suspense

    15. Peaches says:

      With a poor attempt at a Lifetime movie esque title, I knew it would be bad, but not this atrocious This book has a sloppy plot and attempts to deal with the complex subject of race in an offensive and uncompelling way The idea was fine Three old friends meet once a year for ritualistic swimming and secret sharing, but one goes missing and is presumed dead Unfortunately, Antionette is a total bitch and elicits no sympathy Sure, she has a damaged past, but instead of rising above it, she decides [...]

    16. Michelle Robinson says:

      OverwroughtVal is so contemptible that she is unbelievable.We are bombarded with so much that it becomes completely impossible to feel anything for these characters It is all too much I think I m done for with this author.I m so angry at myself Went all the way to the end and the ending was worse than the whole I wish I had stopped reading when I realized the absurd level theat they were taking the melodrama to Theo s behavior towards his parents makes no real sense, why is he so angry with his [...]

    17. Stephanie says:

      Kayla, Antoinette, and Val, thrown together on Nantucket twenty years ago, spend one night each year as the Night Swimmers drinking champagne, eating lobster, and swimming off the shores of the island When Antoinette disappears during one of these swims, much about all three women becomes exposed and nothing is as it seems They will never be the same again I usually really enjoy Hilderbrand s books, but this one fell short for me I wasn t vested in the characters, and the whole story seemed some [...]

    18. Cardmaker says:

      Yes, I read the entire book in one day That is not a typo on my start finish dates.I love Elin Hilderbrand s books I ll start with that This one has a great story, extremely well written, good characters, and may be the best one I ve read by her All that praise aside, there were characters in the book that I did not like At all.I enjoyed the writing I always enjoy the location Who can t like Nantucket Obviously, I m recommending it.And for those smart people who are thinking to themselves, there [...]

    19. Lucas Grandkoski says:

      This is my 3rd Elin Hilderbrand book I started with Barefoot, which I purchased for my Kindle and thoroughly enjoyed I have since ordered all of the remainder of her books from either the library or One thing I noticed about this book was that it had much of a mystery feel too What has drawn me to her books is the great character descriptions and the Nantucket scenery which is a common theme in all her books.This book is an intricately woven story of family, of friendship, and of our perception [...]

    20. Alison says:

      Great summer read Another good Hilderbrand book set on Nantucket Kept my interest from the beginning Favorite quote from the book To be friends with another woman was difficult, Kayla thought, and painful and complicated But when a friendship between women was good, it had a sacred, shining power Excerpt From Hilderbrand, Elin Nantucket Nights iBooks This material may be protected by copyright.

    21. Candy says:

      This book reminded me why I like to read mysteries even tho they re filled with betrayal, lies, etc at least there s usually someone who has some moral compass I really dodn t enjoy reading about people who cheat on their husbands, throw their friends under the bus, and just aren t very likeable.

    22. Lesley says:


    23. Barb says:

      This was a 1 1 2 star book for me I finished it so I am giving it the extra 1 2 star It is a light read, but it reads like a bad soap opera I don t think I will be reading any of Elin Hilderbrand s books.

    24. Amy says:

      One of the best books I ve read in awhile Lots of parts of the plot that made me not want to put it down I definitely recommend this book

    25. Hope says:

      The past few cold months have made me long for days on the beach followed by warm summer nights When I saw Nantucket Nights by, Elin Hilderbrand, I was hoping it would remind me of summer The setting was the first thing that grabbed my attention I have been to Nantucket many times, and loved it, so I wanted to see if it was anything like my experience Also, the book seemed like it had a little mystery in it It talked about investigating a friend that went missing I was hoping the book would be a [...]

    26. ✨ Ljubica ✨ says:

      so glad i read this book because now i have my pal matt to buddy read it with and workout in the gym with him as well this book has honestly been sitting on my bookshelf for at least 2 years and im glad I finally go to it, not what i was expecting at all wish the ending was clear on what happens with Theo and his situation but alas not everyone can get a happy ending just i wish he knew the truth so he could move on with his life without feeling so much guilt and what he did for lindsey at the [...]

    27. Kerry says:

      Three stars is a gift Ok Elinis one was weird Seriously felt like I was reading a soap opera I prefer her recent books much than I did this one None of the characters were at all likable they were all horrible and made terrible decisions.

    28. Riann Mohar says:

      Terrible storyline Wretched characters Only thing worse was the fact that I listened to the audiobook which makes the dialogue even cringeworthy.

    29. Vanessa Perkins says:

      I have never read anything by this author until now and I really enjoyed this book I found it to be realistic and pretty interesting What an ending
