The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer

Sophie unconsciously does know her marriage is in the doldrums but it still comes as a shock when her husband lays down new ground rules. Susie her old friend has a bungalow in Nantucket and she thinks a separation will allow her to think clearly, what has to be done. Unknown to Susie, her cousin has given the house to a friend of his - Trevor and his son. Trevor and the boy are trying to come to grips with their life after the tragic loss of Trevor's wife and Leo's mother.

With no contracts to bind them both parties decide to live together and the arrangement seems to be working very well. What no one envisaged would be the attraction that develops between Sophie and Trevor.

This is a simple story of the break up of a marriage and finding love once again. Very simply told, almost too simple it would seem at times.

This was a book kindly sent to me by Edelweiss.


  1. Even though it seems like it might be simple it also sounds like a nice and easy read for summer time.

  2. Nancy Thayer has the prettiest covers for her novels. Maybe I'll try this over the summer.

  3. I'm really looking forward to reading this one, you seemed to enjoy it. Such a pretty cover!
