There is no such thing as a list of perfect beach reads without a novel by Elin Hilderbrand. She is the queen of transporting readers to idyllic vacation settings through her vivid descriptions of small towns and the quaint people that inhabit them.
In The Rumor, Hilderbrand takes us to Nantucket Island, where we find Madeline King experiencing a severe case of writer’s block and in serious need of her best friend, Grace.
Grace is dealing with her own set of problems – problems with her marriage, problems with her backyard garden, and the problem of the handsome landscape architect she’s hired to help with the garden.
Yes, Nantucket is a small island where rumors big and small travel far and wide. Didn’t you hear? It’s turning out to be a seriously hot summer. And we’re not even talking about the weather.
