Synopsis

Lyrical, emotional, dramatic, and packed with Nancy Thayer’s trademark warmth and wisdom, Heat Wave tells the moving story of a woman who, after her seemingly perfect life unravels, must find the strength to live and love again.
 
After her husband’s sudden death, Carley Winsted is determined to keep her two daughters in their beloved home on Nantucket. To ease the family’s financial strain, she decides to transform their grand, historic house into a bed-and-breakfast. Not everyone, however, thinks this plan prudent or quite respectable—especially not Carley’s mother-in-law. Further complicating a myriad of challenges, a friend forces Carley to keep a secret that, if revealed, will undo families and friendships. And her late husband’s former law partner is making Carley confront an array of mixed feelings. Then, during a late-summer heat wave, the lives of Carley and her friends and family will be forever changed in entirely unexpected ways.

A Bit too Heated
May 8th, 2014
I like Ms. Thayer's writing style; it's comfortable and flows easily so the reader stays engaged. I think maybe there was just a little too much going on in the main character's life. And speaking as a business owner, it's never possible to latch onto a new venture that is wildly successful right out of the gate like her B&B! Heavens, she was clueless about their family finances for over a decade but figured out how to run a profitable business in a matter of months? And all while coping with the very recent death of her husband and two grief-stricken young daughters? And lands the perfect relationship in the midst of it too? Ms. Thayer's main character puts Wonder Woman to shame!
