Nantucket Nights by Elin Hilderbrand

I LOVED this book!  A co-worker recommended this book to me years ago and I have had it on my bookshelf for a long time.  I do not know why I didn't pick it up sooner.

Here's the synopsis from

The ties between women can run as deep as the ocean-but so can the secrets. — 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. But on one of those bonding nights, one of their trio 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, even themselves.

What makes this book so good is that the story is so shocking and you can really see all sides to it.  It also has this underlying mystery that you are trying to figure out through the whole book.  What really happened to Antionette?  

It was really good and I can't wait to read more from this author!

I give this one 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I loved this book and I'm a big fan of Elin Hilderbrand! She just had a new one come out, but I'm waiting for it from the library.

Her release from last year, Silver Girl, was really good too!
