Descrizione

In The Beach Club, the juicy first novel by Elin Hilderbrand, a series of personal dramas are played out during one summer at a Nantucket Beach Club. It's about the love of summer, summer love, and the special feelings we all have for that special summer place—in this case, a hotel and an island.

Mack Petersen, manager of the hotel, has been working at The Beach Club for 12 summers. Only this summer is different. His boss, the owner of the hotel, Bill Elliot, shows up in the spring with a new set of demands. His girlfriend Maribel is pressing Mack to get married and Vance, the African-American bellman, who has hated Mack since the day Mack stole his job 12 years ago, threatens him in a deadly scene. Mack knows something's got to give.

Love O'Donnell, the new front desk person straight from the slopes of Aspen, is desperately searching for a stranger to father her child. The bellman, Jem Crandall, who posed as Mr. November in his college calendar, is on his way to LA to break into agenting, until he falls in love with Maribel. Emotions are at a peak when a hurricane threatens to wash away The Beach Club and all it stands for.

An engrossing, sexy novel that will sweep you away to the beach any time of the year.

A Macmillan Audio production.

    The Beach Club is about a hotel/beach club that has belonged to the same owner for years and years. Mack has worked for Bill and Theresa for over 12 years and really would love to get a share of the profits but is too chicken to ask. In fact, Mack is pretty much too chicken to do anything. He wont marry his girlfriend, he wont sell his farm in Iowa, (Elin is originally from Iowa, she went to U of I as well) he wont ask for any profits that the hotel makes. This book was good, but just not as good as it could have been, or not even as good as some of her other books. What's strange is that this was her first book ever written and I can't understand why it's so popular. It really wasn't THAT good. It definitely wasn't "the book" to make a career. But hey, every writer has to start somewhere, and if it was good enough to be published that has to say something for the rest of us doesn't it. Anyway, I give this book a C. Hopefully the next one I read will be better than this on

    Perfect book for long airplane trip.Mindless, "soap opera"ish story of a Beach and Hotel club on Nantucket and the interwoven tales of the manager, owner, people who work there, etc.
