The Island by Elin Hilderbrand

Birdie Cousins is busy working through the details of her daughter Chess’s wedding.  Her biggest problem seems to be getting her ex-husband to pay for the floating-island dance floor for the reception when Chess calls to tell her the wedding is off.  Birdie decides to take Chess, her other daughter Tate and Birdie’s sister India to their family vacation home on Tuckernuck Island for the month on July. 

The island is cut off from the world with no electricity and the only interaction is with the caretaker that comes twice a day to deliver ice, groceries and take away trash and laundry.  The caretaker is the handsome Barrett Lee who both Tate and Chess had a crush on in their teen-age years.

As the month of July goes on, Chess comes to grips with the loss of her fiancé and the other women grapple with their problems.  What will happen when the month is over?

I enjoyed this book, it was a great “beach read”.  Nothing too deep, including the characters, but pleasurable none-the-less.

3 stars (Rated PG-13 – brief language and sex talk)
