I loved the descriptions of the food in this book--makes you hungry just reading about the lamb lollipops and homemade crackers. The characters are lovely and complicated and hungry for love--just perfect for the beach.

The Blue Bistro
Elin Hilderbrand is always writing about life on Nantucket in her books. In this look at the lucrative restaurant business, she has crafted a smart, well-rounded and lovable character who has recently picked up her life as a hotel concierge in Aspen and moved to Nantucket to make a new start after a bad breakup. Acting upon the advice of a fellow passenger on the ferry to the island, she bicycles to the fancy French restaurant The Blue Bistro the next morning in search of a job. Miraculously, the red-headed owner offers her the job as floor manager, provided that she not mention anything to the press about the talented but elusive chef.
