The Beach House – Jane Green

July 30, 2008

I am a big fan of Jane Green. I have read all of her books to date. So, when this one was release, of course I ran right out and purchased my hardcover copy.

This book tells the story of Nan, who lives in an old house called Windermere in Nantucket by herself. In an attempt to earn some extra money, she decides to rent out the extra rooms in her home for one summer. The rest of the story revolves around Nan and the characters that fill her home with their lives.

Like most of her books, I really liked this one. It was a light and breezy read. The characters were varied and likeable, each with their own story that kept the book flowing from beginning to end. Jane Green is the epitome of chick lit. But it’s not ditzy name dropping chick lit. Her stories are real and fresh and relatable. This book is a great summer beach read. I can’t wait for her next one!
