Island Girls by Nancy Thayer

Summer Read #4

A house on Nantucket Island brings three sisters (OK, two half sisters and one step sister) together after their father/stepfather dies.  The stipulation of his will is that they spend the summer together and then sell the house for their inheritance.  It is an interesting story of three wives, some deception, and grown single daughters with unresolved issues. 

Best of all is the description of Nantucket life:  ferry rides, an old Victorian home, afternoon swims, sailing, a small tourist town, backyard gardens, and the pace of life.  This is summer reading the way I love it!
