The Beach House by Jane Green

Title: The Beach House
Author: Jane Green
Genre: Fiction, novel.
Reason for Reading: I was looking for something light.
Pages: 341
Copyright Date: 2009
Cover: A metallic blue with images of hydrangeas, a deck chair, and an umbrella.
First line: "The bike crunches along the gravel path, weaving around the potholes that could present danger to someone who didn't know the road like the back of their hand."
Setting: Nantucket Island, present day.
Best part: I didn't see the major plot twist coming.
Worst part: A particular plot is repeated two places in this book. Does Green think that cheating always leads to leaving your partner for the other person, only to find they don't want you after all?
Imaginary Theme Song: "Never Been Gone" by Carly Simon (a song about Nantucket)
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Anyone desiring a beach read.
