Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Heather Willette has a good life in Concord, Massachusetts-complete with a husband who runs his own business and a son to take up his mantle one day. But now that her marriage has fizzled out and Ross, her only child, is graduating from college and getting serious with his girlfriend, Heather wonders if that life is the one she really wants. Ready to seek out her own happiness and discover herself again, Heather decides to leave her husband and rent a cottage on Nantucket. And her plan is going perfectly-until Ross announces he's moving to Nantucket to work at his girlfriend's family's construction business instead of going back home to work with his own father, like he'd promised. Worst of all for Heather, this means having to get along with her. Kailee Essex is thrilled that Ross is willing to move to her hometown. She has big hopes for their happily ever after, especially now that her parents are finally showing interest in her career. She's less thrilled, however, about his mother living nearby. Kailee has clashed with Heather since the day they met. But anything is possible in the summer sun and sea breezes of Nantucket-even reconciliation. And when change comes sooner than either Heather or Kailee expect, they must learn to overcome their differences to fight for the future they want."-- Provided by publisher.

    Heather Willette is at a crossroads. Nearing 50 and an empty nester no longer in love with her husband, Heather is ready to figure out the next phase of her life. When the opportunity to rent a small home on the island of Nantucket proves too serendipitous to pass up, Heather serves her husband divorce papers and prepares to spend the summer finding herself again. What she doesn't anticipate is her son, Ross, moving to Nantucket as well. Kailee Essex is Nantucket royalty; her family lineage goes back at least a century, and they own a powerful construction company responsible for the seaside escapes on the island. Kailee can't wait to spend the summer finally working in the family business alongside her boyfriend, Ross Willette. What she doesn't anticipate is her boyfriend's mother joining them on the island as well. Both women tread lightly around each other, but when secrets and devastation bring them together, they'll learn Nantucket has room for both of them. Best-selling author Thayer delivers another heartwarming story that fans will enjoy. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
