It felt very appropriate while in Cape Cod, to be reading a
book based in Nantucket. I was killing time at the airport before my flight and
was perusing the 50% off pre-read books to see if any looked good or were by
authors I’ve read before, when I spied The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand.
Having read books by her in the past, I figured this would be a great vacation
read since it should be a little scandalous, happy little beach read. Oh boy,
was I ever right – think of four couples who live on the island who intermingle
in each others lives, some in aspects that are a bit shocking. Everyone seems
to have a love interest outside their own two-some, and seeing the weaving
landscape of the group and their dynamics is interesting to say the list. Definitely
consider this for a great escape from deep thinking books – no googling needed,
just a great way to enjoy passing time in the blissful sun.
