The Beach Club by Elin Hilderbrand

Genre: Fiction

“The Beach Club” is another novel set in the beautiful world of Nantucket Island. Bill and Therese Elliot are the owners of a very exclusive beach resort called, “The Beach Club”. It’s been passed down through Bill’s family and he intends to pass it along to their young daughter Cecily. However, Cecily has plans of her own for her future.

Mack Petersen has been hotel manager for twelve years. He has become very close to the Elliots. In fact, Therese is hoping Mack asks Cecily to marry him. Unfortunately, Mack is in love with the beautiful Maribel, who is anxiously awaiting a marriage proposal. After dating Mack for six years, she’s sure a proposal is forthcoming. When it doesn’t happen, both Mack and Maribel begin to question their relationship and wonder if there is any hope for them.

The new front-desk person, Love O’Donnell, has one thing on her mind. She desperately needs a man to father her child. At 40 years old, Love’s biological clock is working overtime. More than anything, she wants a baby but she doesn’t want a lasting relationship. When she meets head bellman, Vance, she’s immediately attracted to him and doubly happy when she finds out he doesn’t want any children. It’s the perfect set up for Love’s plans.

Readers are taken on a wonderful summer vacation through the pages of this fast-moving, captivating book. There is a wide variety of secondary characters and, when I red this, I really felt as if I was at the resort sipping Margaritas. This is the second book I’ve read by this author and I’ve enjoyed both. This definitely won’t be my last.
