Secrets and Nantucket's most exclusive and glamorous, family-owned hotel.

The Whitley is Nantucket's most exclusive waterfront hotel--a sprawling collection of pristine white cottages and an elegant main building on a long stretch of private, white sandy beach.

It's a family owned business--brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, all work there in various capacities.

Paula is happy in her back office accounting position. But changes are in store when her grandfather promotes her and fires her cousin--who then blames Paula.

Meanwhile, a blond romantic comedy superstar is hiding out at The Hotel for a few months. She meets Paula's brother, a chef--who has no idea who she is--and she likes it that way.

Paula's grandfather also hires a consultant to help her settle into her new role. But she isn't sure what to think of David, who grew up on Nantucket but now lives in Manhattan.

He's a brilliant consultant and will be assessing Paula's suitability for the role. He's also home for another reason, a difficult family issue that makes Manhattan seem very far away.

A new family saga from the Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller author of The Nantucket Inn and The Restaurant.

The author is right about one thing! This book made me hungry and I found myself drooling right from the beginning! Oh my!
I loved " being" on Nantucket once again. I enjoyed my "visit" so much that I didn't want to leave.
I even like the name of the hotel The Whitley Hotel. I had an awesome visit and made new friends as well. 
I felt that the author did an excellent job with the mother's progressing disease. Not a whole lot or not too much. It's a terrible thing. Made me want to cry.
I think my favorite character was Paula. I enjoyed reading about her. The way she took everyday life and handled it like a pro. Even though there were things she didn't like she took it very well. (Something I don't think I can do.) 
In my opinion, Paula's grandfather was the coolest character of all. He knew what he was about and I loved how he encourages people to do their best and works with those that are not so good. I wish we had more people like him in the restaurant world. I think things would go so much better and that people would want to get out and work more.
I "felt" for Andrea. Her thoughts and feelings would have been exactly like mine at first. So I sort of understood her a lot! But she really didn't have to go out of her way to be ornery.
I learned quite a few things from this book and I definitely loved the author's note at the end of this book.
I think it would be awesome to try a job like that!
Anyway, a wonderful book and one that I finished on a day because it was so good!
Fans of foodie's will definitely love this book!
I recommend!
My thanks for a copy of this book.
I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
