Publisher's Summary

Since opening up their day spa, The Haven, the wonderful women of the Hot Flash Club have been busy indulging the beleaguered, nerve-frazzled throngs. Now, in Nancy Thayer's hilarious new Hot Flash novel, it's the friends' turn to grab some soothing, and much-deserved, R&R. When a long time Haven client asks the gals to housesit her Nantucket hideaway for the summer, they're beyond thrilled; the cozy island enclave is the perfect place to shop, swim, chill, and plan Marilyn's upcoming wedding to Ian, her Scottish fiance. And Marilyn desperately needs the break, since Ian's grown son has crashed at the couple's place with no departure date in sight.
Soon after they arrive, the other hot flashers surrender to their own summer flings: Shirley entertains a steamy dalliance with a scruffy, sexy local fisherman that could lead to something deeper; Faye finds her dream house, but restoring it could be a costly nightmare; craft-maven Polly is enthralled by the island's bounty, from shell art to lightship baskets; and even hardboiled Alice swoons with romantic adventure, or is it seasickness?
But this lovefest among the sand and ocean breezes is not without its consequences. Each woman must determine for herself what she is willing to give up in order to hold onto what she has found. And all of them fear that Shirley is on the brink of making a huge mistake, one that threatens their harmony and their business. But these concerns may be eclipsed by the mystery surrounding the disappearance of family heirlooms at the house where they are staying, and rumors that the place harbors spirits other than Grey Goose and Tanqueray.
Nancy Thayer continues her hugely successful Hot Flash series with this wickedly funny, delightfully bawdy tale. These irresistible women spring to life: along with their passions, their sorrows, their joys, and, most importantly, their friendship.

Enjoyable, light, and I can identify!!

I was looking for a book to enjoy and take my mind away while I did long hours of finishing a complex quilting job, and this book was perfect. While I don't have the money or the luxury of time that these characters had, obviously, to enable them to spend much of their summer on Nantucket, I could certainly identify with the experiences that life in their 50's and 60's brought to The Hot Flash Club members! I enjoyed the distinct personalities of the various women, and appreciated the fact that they had lives that included meaningful work, both the ups and downs of family (and a hint of realistic co-dependency), and yes, romance and even sex! It's nice to find some light, enjoyable but well-written reading about my own age group. I plan to download the other books in this series for more summer pleasure. The narrator did a good job with the characters, and was a good voice to listen to, too,

You go Hot Flash Club

I enjoyed this book so much, I went for more. I am so glad you wrote a book about middle age girls, their dreams, drama, love and life. Like I said I needed to go for more.
