The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand

 About the book: 

After a tragic fire in 1922 that killed 19-year-old chambermaid, Grace Hadley, The Hotel Nantucket descended from a gilded age gem to a mediocre budget-friendly lodge to inevitably an abandoned eyesore — until it's purchased and renovated top to bottom by London billionaire, Xavier Darling.  Xavier hires Nantucket sweetheart Lizbet Keaton as his general manager, and Lizbet, in turn, pulls together a charismatic, if inexperienced, staff who share the vision of turning the fate of the hotel around. They face challenges in getting along with one another (and with the guests), in overcoming the hotel's bad reputation, and in surviving the (mostly) harmless shenanigans of Grace Hadley herself — who won't stop haunting the hotel until her murder is acknowledged.
Filled with the emotional tension and multiple points of view that characterize Elin's books (The Blue BistroGolden Girl) as well as an added touch of historical reality, Hotel Nantucket offers something for everyone in this summer drama for the ages.


Pack your bags💼 we are off to Nantucket. Cabana boy… please fetch me my drink…🍸…I am feeling fancy..😂🏝🍸💼❤️This book!! I loved it!!! I have only read three other books by @elinhilderbrand and I have loved them all… but this one is AMAZING! Definitely my favorite! ❤️

I am pretty much obsessed at this point with Nantucket 😂 I wonder how many people have vacationed there after reading @elinhilderbrand books!! 🤔 I know it is high on my list!!

Where to begin?? I loved it all.. Everyone knows everyone and everything..when you live on Nantucket.. apparently… 🤷‍♀️ The gossip is on fire 🔥 So when a billionaire says he is going to throw 30 million into a rundown hotel 🏨… Well that got everyone talking. Can he make it into the glamorous tourist destination??? You bet he can!!😉

A ghost 👻 you say?? I must admit I was so excited that there was a ghost!! 🤭 I think what I enjoyed the most were the characters. I felt I knew them all!! I was obsessed with finding out… WHO is Shelly Carpenter??? 🤔 I never guessed!! 😮🤫

I also loved how the book opened with us getting a glimpse of the dynamics of the island 🏝…and then the Chads… 😂 I didn’t know that this was a thing?!😂🤷‍♀️ This book was fantastic.. entertaining.. a bit of a mystery… I flipping loved it!! Lastly.. ohhh that cover!! 😍😍😍
