"Beachcombers" by Nancy Thayer

BeachcombersBeachcombers by Nancy Thayer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Abby, Emma and Lily enjoyed many hours of fun with their mother combing the beaches of Nantucket.  Now, Abby has returned because Lily called for help to motivate Emma who is home after her life falls apart.  Mother is long gone and Dad is not the same.

In one seamlessly-written narrative, Thayer tells the sisters' stories and that of Marina, who is renting their "playhouse" for the summer. It seems that five plots move together in a way that allows readers to know these women and experience their joys and heartbreaks.

I seldom read "romances." This was one of the light and entertaining ones that kept me picking it up again to find out what was happening, a little like a soap opera without the radical drama.

Entertaining, predictable
