Publisher's Summary

It’s a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island. Over the course of the next 24 hours, two lives will be transformed forever.
Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade. This all changes with a phone call from Marguerite’s goddaughter, Renata Knox. Marguerite has not seen Renata since the death of Renata’s mother, Candace Harris Knox, 14 years earlier. And now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiancé, she takes the opportunity, against her father’s wishes, to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her mother’s life - and death. But the events of the day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned.
Welcome to The Love Season - a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island of Nantucket, as well as Manhattan, Paris, and Morocco. Elin Hilderbrand’s most ambitious novel to date chronicles the famous couplings of real lives: love and friendship, food and wine, deception and betrayal - and forgiveness and healing.

Super Excellent!!! A must listen!!!

What made the experience of listening to The Love Season the most enjoyable?

I wasn't going to purchase this audiobook after listening to the preview but I did and I was wowed!!! The story had stories within stories not a moment in the book was it dull! I loved every character; every bit of travel; friendships made and want a sequel!!! You can't be disappointed. There are many character's but never confusing. The book is excellent from go and Christina Delaine is my favorite narrator?

What other book might you compare The Love Season to and why?

The closest in my thoughts is The Blue Bistro but I liked this more. It had more of a storyline with great character's. Definitely is a listen again!

Have you listened to any of Christina Delaine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, Christina is my favorite narrator by far! The voices are distinguishing different and she involves me right into the audio. I feel I am there?

If you could rename The Love Season, what would you call it?

I wouldn't change it.

Any additional comments?

I have read many of Elin Hilderbrand's books and have enjoyed every one. I had never read her before and will definitely read them all. She's an amazing author; uniquely gifted to making each book very different. I am super impressed!

I really enjoyed Elin's approach to this story, the characters were uniquely interwoven with each other, and the ending was great. A very creative approach. Very open ended in what would unfold for each of them, but not in a way to set up a sequel or series, just great writing style. It was fun to see what my mind wanted to do with the characters. I was delighted to be brought into the story that way. The "romance" of the Island & "fine dining/wine" was wonderfully unfolded in the story line.
