The Elin Hilderbrand Collection Volume 2 Book Excerpt:

THE ELIN HILDERBRAND COLLECTION: VOLUME 2 includes two blockbusters by New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand NANTUCKET NIGHTS For 20 years, Kayla, Antoinette, and Val have performed their own special summer ritual. Once a year, the old friends put aside their daily, separate lives to drink champagne, swap stories, and swim naked under the Nantucket stars. This time though, one of them swims out from the shore and doesn't return. After the surviving friends emerge from their grief, they realize that the repercussions of their loss go far beyond their little circle, and they begin to uncover layers of secrets, and their connections to each other, that were never revealed on the beach. What has made their friendship strong now has the power to destroy their marriages, families--and even themselves. THE BLUE BISTRO Adrienne Dealey has spent the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns and this summer has decided to relocate to Nantucket. Left flat broke by her ex-boyfriend, she is desperate to earn some fast money. When the desirable Thatcher Smith, owner of the hottest restaurant on the island, is the only one to offer her a job, she wonders if she can get by with no restaurant experience. There seems to be a lot at stake: The Blue Bistro is in its final summer, before closing its doors for good. Adrienne gets a crash course in the restaurant business and things seem to be going smoothly...until Thatch makes Adrienne break one of her cardinal rules, which is never date the boss. Instant chemistry notwithstanding, Adrienne can't quite shake the feeling that there's something more to Thatch's relationship with his brilliant chef Fiona. It's a mystery she can't quite solve. Does she open her heart for the first time, or move on, as she always does?

One Summer Book Excerpt:

Just in time for summer vacation comes this reissue of two beloved Elin Hilderbrand classics, filled with double the sun, sand, drama and romance that fans love. In The Blue Bistro, Adrienne Dealey has decided to relocate to Nantucket after spending the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns. She's just trying to earn some quick money, never bargaining on Thatcher Smith, the owner of the hottest restaurant on the island. He's the only one to offer her a job, despite her lack of restaurant experience, and things seem to be going smoothly until Thatch makes Adrienne break one of her cardinal rules: Never date the boss. Should she open her heart for the first time, or move on, as she always does? In The Love Season, Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade. But this all changes with a phone call from her goddaughter, Renata Knox, whom Marguerite has not seen since the death of Renata's mother fourteen years earlier. Now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiancé, she takes the opportunity to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her own mother's life—and death. But the events of a day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned. The Love Season is a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades.

Endless Summer Book Excerpt:

The "queen of beach reads” (New York Magazine) presents a newly assembled collection of nine captivating stories—prequels, sequels, and bonus chapters from Elin Hilderbrand’s beloved books—some of which have never been published, until now. Bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand revisits her most treasured and iconic characters in this magical collection of stories. Collected in a single volume for the first time, Endless Summer ranges from fan favorites to original, never-before-seen works. In “The Surfing Lesson,” the marriage at the heart of Beautiful Day crosses uncertain territory when Margot Carmichael encourages her husband to reunite with his ex-girlfriend. The legendary weekend of a Harvard-Yale football game in “The Tailgate” recharts the course of Matchmaker Dabney Kimball’s first—and abiding—true love. And in a brand-new novella, “Summer of ’89,” we reconnect with the Levin sisters, whose distant adult lives collide once again at a tumultuous family reunion on Nantucket. With exclusive, behind-the-scenes introductions to each story, this page-turning volume blends Hilderbrand’s irresistible love of Nantucket with her longtime affection for short stories. Endless Summer answers the prayers of both new and seasoned readers everywhere who “would rather be living in an Elin Hilderbrand novel” (Kirkus Reviews).

The Beach Club Book Excerpt:

A special place, an unexpected passion, and the summer they would never forget--the novel People magazine voted a "Beach Read of the Week," by New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand Gorgeous Nantucket is an island where memories are made, friendships begun, passions ignited. Now, during one unforgettable summer, the exclusive Nantucket Beach Club and Hotel will shape the fates of the men and women who walk through its doors... Mack Petersen escaped the past and started over in a hotel that has become his life. This summer his secrets can't stay hidden. Love O'Donnell, a glamorous Aspen native, takes a job at the Beach Club to implement her life plan--to find a man to get her pregnant. Vance Robbins has his African-American pride and festering resentments. This season, a gun and a woman offer him a chance to get even with the man he hates most. Cecily Elliott, the owner's daughter, wild and beautiful at eighteen, is about to do something to break her parents' hearts. And Lacey Gardner, the Grande Dame of the Beach Club for 45 years, knows about desperate desire--and about the storm coming that will change everything. The Beach Club, Elin Hilderbrand's first Nantucket novel--the one that started it all--is still the most satisfying read of the summer.
