The ties between women can run as deep as the ocean--but so can the secrets.

For 20 years, Kayla, Antoinette and Val have performed their own special summer ritual. Once a year, the old friends put aside their daily, separate lives to drink champagne, swap stories and swim naked under the Nantucket stars. But on one of those bonding nights, one of their trio swims out from the shore and doesn't return. After the surviving friends emerge from their grief, they realize that the repercussions of their loss go far beyond their little circle, and they begin to uncover layers of secrets--and their connections to each other--that were never revealed on the beach. What has made their friendship strong now has the power to destroy--their marriages, families, even themselves, in Elin Hilderbrand's Nantucket Nights.


  • The ending is trash

    By Heatherkay4
    The whole build up of betrayal & then nothing but “a new life”? And some so rapidly without a sense of closure.
  • Disappointing

    By Floydmann
    Unbelievable people and ridiculous, unbelievable melodrama.
  • Horrible Characters

    By MelWoodSlater
    I wish I'd read the reviews before I purchased this book. Almost every character is a horrible horrible person. Quite honestly the whole book disgusted me. Totally self-involved characters with absolutely no redeeming qualities. Do yourself a favor and do not read this book. It leaves you with a sick feeling.

    Negative writing with zero resolution based on unrealistic emotional/intellectual premises
  • Shameful

    By Kittyusa2015
    When you sign a contract for a number of books without having anything to share with your readers at all, you do this
  • Unreal

    By Suze2you
    Loved a couple of the author's other books, but this book did not reach those heights. Unbelievable story and characters. Not just dissatisfying, but also rather sickening. It's a mucky swamp.

    Summer novels are a treat! This one was so bad I am sick from it. Not worth the time or the money. Read it all hoping for some value somewhere - but alas - none! Story stunk - too many holes - lots of filler - and the ending - well it didn't have one. If this is all she had left to tell - time to start another profession!
  • Sorry, Elin...not my fave

    By phimucowgirl
    I have so enjoyed this author ever since reading Blue Bistro. I've read four since then, and find myself wanting to visit Nantucket. Then I read this book. Too dark and taboo. Bummer. Elin, go back to doing what u were doing well.
  • Not her best...

    By Tucker41
    I have read 4 of her books. This one, by far, was the worst. I really enjoyed the others but this one was far-fetched and downright silly at times.
  • Not her best

    I thought this was too predictable and I did not like the weakness of one of the main characters. The ending was horrible. I
