The Nantucket Inn

The Nantucket Inn

**Now a USA Today Bestseller!** 

Lisa Hodges needs to make a decision fast. Thanks to her dead husband’s gambling addiction, their savings is almost gone. In her early fifties with a large, waterfront home on Nantucket to support, Lisa hasn’t worked in over thirty years, has no in-demand skills and is virtually unemployable.

Her only options are to sell the house and move off-island, or, she could use her cooking and entertaining skills and turn her home into a bed and breakfast. She desperately needs it to succeed because she has four grown children with problems of their own and wants to stay close to them. 

Her oldest daughter, Kate, has a fabulous career in Boston--working as a writer for a popular fashion magazine and engaged to a dangerously handsome, photographer, who none of them have met.

Kate's twin, local artist, Kristen, has been reasonably content with her on-again off-again relationship with an older, separated businessman. 

Her son, Chase, runs his own construction business and is carefree, happily dating here and there but nothing serious. 

Youngest daughter, Abby, is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and they've been trying to have a baby. But it hasn't happened yet, and Abby wonders if it's a sign that maybe their marriage isn't as perfect as everyone thinks.

Come visit Nantucket and see how Lisa's new bed and breakfast has an impact on almost everyone in her family. It's the first book in a new series that will follow the Hodges family, friends, and visitors to Nantucket's Beach Plum Cove Inn.

    This was my first read by this author and it was great. I will never get to Nantucket, because it is way out of my pay grade, but I love to read books set there and I feel like I know the area. I have...

    So poorly written. The author never met a comma she didn't like. The characters were one-dimensional and boring. By the end of the book, all their problems disappeared because they all found a man!...

    I would say this one gets 3.5 stars from me (so I'm rounding up to 4 here). I am not sure if I have read a book that really touched on SO many different characters/points of view. I feel like this one...
