The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand

In this story, London billionaire Xavier Darling has bought the historic hotel Nantucket still surviving on by a thread from its glamourous heydays of the 1920s after several unsuccessful renovations. He’s hired Lizbet Keaton as General Manager of the hotel.  She is seeking her own second chance after breaking up with her long time (15 year) boyfriend.

Every hotel staff-member, each of which has their own interesting story, is inspired to work their butts off to ensure the hotel’s success.  But there are other goals for each staff member.  Their new, absentee boss has promised a $1000.00 bonus each week for exceptional service provided to guests.  Also, they are seeking to obtain a “five key” review from a mysterious Instagram tastemaker. Will the hotel’s ghost help or hurt their efforts? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

This is one of the best authors for a light, fun, summer beach read!
