BEACHCOMBERS by Nancy Thayer - Book Blog Tour Stop!

I am so pleased to be hosting a blog tour stop for the fabulous book, “Beachcombers” by Nancy Thayer. This is one of those summertime books that readers are sure to really enjoy – full of friendship, romance, and hot sexy encounters … who can ask for more!

About The Book:

Abbie Fox hasn’t seen her father or two younger sisters in almost two years, during which she’s jetted around the world and experienced life, if not love. But now Lily, the baby of the family, is sending Abbie urgent emails begging her to return home to Nantucket.

Their middle sister, Emma, has taken to her bed, emotionally devastated after the loss of her high-powered stockbroker’s job and a shockingly unexpected break-up with her fiancé.

Also, Lily is deeply worried that Marina, the beautiful, enigmatic woman renting their guesthouse, has set her sights on the sisters’ widowed father, Jim. The Fox girls closed ranks years ago after the haunting, untimely death of their mother, but seeing their dad move on with his life forces each of them to take stock.

Over the course of the summer, the sisters’ lives grow as turbulent as the unpredictable currents encircling Nantucket. When Abbie encounters an incredibly appealing married man, she breaks her own rules in the name of love, fearing all the while that she’ll regret it.

Meanwhile, type-A Emma learns a new definition of success, and strong-minded Lily must reconcile her dreams with reality. Even Marina, who has come to Nantucket to forget heartbreak and betrayal, faces an astonishing turn of events that will find her torn between fate and freedom. At summer’s end, these unforgettable women will face profound choices—and undergo personal transformations that will surprise even themselves

My Thoughts:

“Beachcombers” is one of those books that when you are through reading it, you want to pass it along to one of your girlfriends to share because it is so good!

Nancy Thayer has created a cast of memorable characters in the Fox girls, the men who adore and lust after them, their handsome father Jim, and the charming and mysterious Marina. Following their adventures, triumphs and tragedies, readers will soon feel as these folks are old friends and neighbors. You’ll find yourself cheering for the Fox family and booing the few folks they have problems with.

And it is rare that an ending of a book touches me as much as the ending of “Beachcombers.” It was one of those shivery, lovely feelings – a satifying conclusion to a charming story.

“Beachcombers is definitely a book you want to savor and enjoy this summer – whether you’re at the beach, or on your own front porch. Just don’t forget to pass it along to a friend.
