It was nice to read a stand alone romance/women's fiction book. Although it took place on Thayer's Nantucket world, it was very much contained to the characters introduced in the beginning of the book and no other tie in with another Nantucket book.This was a fluffy beach read and it was fun to read, but nothing sticks out as especially good or bad. The women featured are pretty wealthy (or at least well-off) so there is a bit of "richy rich" syndrome going on here. The women worked hard, but they partied just as hard. The men were less drawn and were more like another accessory for the women.
