      I m actually surprised I made it to the end of the book What a snore fest I really tried to like it and kept hoping that it would improve but unfortunately, no luck.The story takes place on Nantucket Carley has just lost her husband, Gus, who in turn left her with two young daughters to raise and no money, only their family home Stressed about finances and wanting to stay home to raise her girls, she decides to open a BB as she loves to entertain and bake, etc Also, her husband s best I m actual [...]

      This is not the worst book I ve cracked this year, but it s far from the best I picked it up at the library thank God I didn t spend any money on it for some very light summer readingyou know the kindit keeps you turning the pages but doesn t tax the intellect at all.Well, it filled the bill on the intellect part, but boy, did I want to stop turning the pages.It s not that every book I open should be Crime and Punishment , but reallythere s a fine line between light and flaky like a This is not [...]

      Where to start when reviewing Heat Wave, by Nancy Thayer First of all, the title doesn t really work, because I think of the action of the book takes place during the winter in Nantucket, and there is very little time spent during the summer Also, whose legs are on the cover Now that I ve finished the book, the cover is a little cryptic because there aren t any scenes of people sitting on a pier with their feet dangling over the ocean or anything remotely like that despite the beach Where to sta [...]

      Awful This is the novel version of a Lifetime movie, complete with unbelievable characters who have soap opera names The most laughable dialogue takes place among these characters along the improbable storyline Carley s every whim of an idea comes off without a hitch A tag sale Every item is snatched up as soon as the unwanted junk is displayed, including used electric nose hair clippers A bed and breakfast Up and oh so successfully running within months, including house renovations, perm Awful [...]

      I usually enjoy Nancy Thayer s writing for her relatable characters, interesting settings, humor, and insight However, I found this recent book to be lacking her usual flare The setting an old house in Nantucket was picturesque, but even it was not mined as deeply as it could have been The story centers on the young widow Carley and her efforts to keep the house and generate an income for her and her daughters after her dead husband s financial affairs are found to be in ruins It is also I usual [...]

      I am absolutely positive that I am incapable of writing a summer novel I am also absolutely positive that Nancy Thayer can And she does it with skill, knowledge and just the right amount of juicy bits.Heat Wave is this summer s Nancy Thayer novel I was able to get a copy from Vine The true start of summer for me is accumulating great summer books from authors like Nancy Thayer and Claire Cook and Jane Green.I eat them up like candy Give me a Nantucket or Maine or Cape Cod setting and I am absolu [...]

      Heat Wave by Nancy Thayer is a book I chose, like most books from the library, at random and from mostly aesthetic expressions I don t think I even read the inside flap You know the old saying, don t judge a book by its cover Well I have found that the experienced a reader, the better you can judge books by a glance That doesn t mean you don t have a few flops every once and a while When I first started reading Heat Wave I thought it would be one of those flops The writing had the cha Heat Wave [...]
