Harper Frost is laid back, easygoing. She doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She likes a beer and a shot and wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything fashionable. She's inherited her father's run-down house on Martha's Vineyard, but she can't hold down a job, and her latest romantic disaster has the entire island talking.
Two beautiful islands only 11 miles apart.
Tabitha Frost is dignified, refined. She prefers a fine wine and has inherited the impeccable taste of her mother, the iconic fashion designer Eleanor Roxie-Frost. She's also inherited her mother's questionable parenting skills - Tabitha's teenage daughter, Ainsley, is in full rebellion mode - and a flailing fashion boutique on Nantucket in desperate need of a cash infusion.
One unforgettable summer that will change their lives forever.
After more than a decade apart, Harper and Tabitha switch islands - and lives - to save what's left of their splintered family. But the twins quickly discover that the secrets, lies, and gossip they thought they'd outrun can travel between islands just as easily as they can. Will Harper and Tabitha be able to bury the hatchet and end their sibling rivalry once and for all? Before the last beach picnic of the season, there will be enough old resentments, new loves, and cases of mistaken identity to make this the most talked about summer that Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket have experienced in ages.

Unrealistic, unbelievable and worst ending ever
I'm afraid Elian Hilderbrand has lost her touch. Characters behaved inconsistently and the plot was thin and unrealistic. The woman who all if a sudden refuses to touch or sleep in the same room as her husband for over a year suddenly is furious he has an affair?? A brother who gives up the love of his life because his sister doesn't like it. Worst of all we are robbed of the main characters resolution at the end as the author gives the last chapter to the dog's point of view. So disappointed

No longer a fan... and Huskies definitely do shed!
I think I have read or listened to every Elin Hilderbrand novel in existence, and use to be a big fan, but this one is SO awful that I only made it half way through, and just couldn't finish. The story is whiny and very immature , as if it were written by a new writer, and the characters are completely unlikable. At times, the book reminded me of a very long commercial, name dropping brands as often as possible. The little voice in my head kept screaming "who cares??"
And last but not least, the dog... a Siberian Husky who doesn't shed. I assure you there is no such thing. For someone who seems to know so much about the Nantucket/ Martha's Vineyard part of the country, and way too much about all the pricey items she calls out by name, the author should definitely have done better research on the dog breed she chose for this story. Overall, and epic E.H. FAIL in my opinion. What happened to the author of Beautiful Day??
