My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
