I love how the whole story revolves around the beach hotel and the people who live, work and travel there.

There were a lot of characters in this book that the storyline focused on. It didn't seem possible that they'd all get a conclusion to their storyline. When it got to the very end, I still felt like a couple story lines were a bit open ended.

I enjoyed it plenty despite that.

The Beach Club By Hilderbrand_ Elin
Hotel on the island and many come to work there to find love and other things.
Quite the mix of people work and come to stay for a bit during the warm summer months to be waited on hand and foot.
So many to follow and all the drama of the island.
Interesting to learn of all the jobs the men have to do prior to the sun rising so guests will have everything ready when they wake up and want to hit the beach.
Lovers, some cheat on spouses, one looking for a man to father her child, others looking for huge tips so they go out of their way to please the guests.
Things go awry and people leave as the summer goes on-some run off to other countries, some bail on the bill, some leave to try new ventures and then a hurricane is forecast to hit-only a little bit, or will it hit them full on?
Surprise ending for all.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

Six years ago I read the my first book by Elin Hildebrand, The Blue Bistro, and claimed it to be the most enjoyable book I've ever read, now I can say there are two books. Eli Hildebrand did it again, for me, and I just started and finished this book today. It was published in many years ago, I'm glad I let this one sit on my shelves...YAY, a good snow day read. ( )

Yes, I'm a sucker for this kind of book. A fast read, characters who mean well but are flawed, some unusual love stories, a beautiful setting. What's not to like? Mack manages the Beach Club every summer, and nearly everybody loves him. But he's confused about a lot of things. Should he marry his girlfriend? Or is he in love with the woman with the autistic son who comes to the Beach Club every year? Should he sell the family farm, or should he go back to Iowa? I came to care about him, too, and the people intertwined in his life. Some of them I wanted to shake and tell them what to do, but mostly I found myself thinking: I understand; I feel that way sometimes too. ( )

I have recently fallen in love with the works of Elin Hilderbrand and have read several now in the last month or so. This is the first of her Nantucket books and while I really enjoyed it, I have loved her more recent ones more.
The beach club started as just that, a beach club for the wealthy to rent,to be able to use a beautiful beach. It has now expanded to also be a 20 room hotel. This novel gets into the lives of the people who work there and those that stay there. Elin's books are all juicy little gossipy treats. Instead of focusing on just a few people, you are thrust into the lives of many people, their emotions, their secrets. Sometimes when there are so many characters, the reader gets lost and confused, to me that is not the case with this authors books. They are fast reads, easy to keep up, and they satisfy that part of us that likes to know everyone's business.
I did find that I didn't connect the same with these characters as much as in the other books of hers that I have read. I found some of them; Vance, Maribel and a few others to be not likeable people and I didn't become as invested in them as I have in her other books. Sometimes I can read a book, and fall in love with the characters despite their faults while still enjoying the book, I didn't find that here.
I realize that none of the books she is writing are connected but I do find it a little odd that all of these books take place on Nantucket, an island that isn't all that big, yet so far I haven't noticed any of the same characters or places mentioned in more than just a single novel.
This author writes the best stories for beach reads, so engrossing and hard to put down, yet still fluffy and delightful.
I enjoy her books so much I am torn between slamming through all of her books quickly or trying to hold off and read them gradually. Either way, this woman really knows how to write great stories and I look forward to reading the rest of them. ( )
