Beachcombers is a fun book to read while sitting by the pool or on the beach.

It is set on Nantucket Island and is the story of three sisters and a woman who is renting a small cottage on their property. All of these women are starting relationships with men they believe have the potential to make them happy. There are some other aspects to the women's lives, separate from their need to have the right life partner, but I do wish there were more. Lily, the youngest sister, is a bit immature and selfish, but seems to do the best job of setting personal priorities. Emily, the middle sister, makes some choices that are not well thought through. Abbie, the oldest sister, with a history of sacrificing for her siblings, struggles to treat herself better. Meanwhile, Marina, the woman renting their cottage, is finding her way to deal with betrayals she's experienced with the help of Jim, the father of the three sisters. The plot seems like a soap-opera, but in an interesting way. I like the writing and enjoy most books set in resort areas.

I recommend this book for people who like light romances.

Well written. It's the first book I've read by Nancy Thayer. I'm sure I'll read more.
I wasn't a huge fan of the characters though. The characters Abbie (especially), Lily and Emma were so selfish sometimes it was really hard to like them.
I liked Marina a lot though. I like how she came to the island to start her life over.

Awesome book, beautifully written, powerfully felt, full of both abundant joy and heart-wrenching sorrow - an extraordinary novel that centers on the bittersweet reunion of three captivating, very different sisters on Nantucket over one gorgeous, exhilarating summer.

This is a good choice if you are looking for a light beach read. I liked how the book was told through the perspective of four different women. Some parts of the book were unrealistic but still enjoyable. ( )

Beachcombers is told from the perspective of 4 different characters over the course of a summer in Nantucket. All of these women are at different stages of their lives, two have just suffered unimaginable heartbreak, and each has some life-changing event occur during this summer when their lives intertwine.

I liked this book a lot, except it made me want to go on vacation really, really bad. I thought the story was well-written, and provided colorful descriptions of both the people and the places in the novel. This is the first Nancy Thayer book I have read, and I have already checked another one out of the library.

However, there were a few things that made me rate this book only 3 out of 5 stars:
1. The character of Lily drove me INSANE. I could not stand the fact that despite being 22 years old, she still whined, refused to take responsibility, was selfish and self-centered, and overall very immature and childish.
2. There were a LOT of ups and downs in this book. Just when you thought everything was ok, something drastically changed that situation almost immediately.
3. Since none of the inner monologues of the male characters were ever told, I always felt like the guys were 'playing' the girls in the story- I was always expecting more heartbreak (probably from all of the Nicholas Sparks books I read).

Overall, I enjoyed this story, even if it did leave me feeling a bit of wanderlust. I can't wait to read more from Nancy Thayer! ( )
