Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Great Setting, Good Characters, Awkward Dialogue

The Island House: A Novel - Nancy Thayer

‘Robin averted her eyes. Courtney was her best friend in the world, had been for over a decade. And she was right–Robin did keep secrets from her. From everyone.’

Set in picturesque Nantucket and full of interesting people coming together for the summer under one roof, The Island House was a story dominated by romance, family problems and tough choices.


Nancy Thayer excels at writing stories with beautiful settings, described in lush detail which makes me want to visit the locations. And while this might not be my favorite of her books, The Island House was still an interesting read with its cast of (many) quirky characters. I really did like Courtney and Robin, who were our main protagonists, although we got multiple POVs throughout the story.
