"Wedding bells are ringing, a family is reunited, and new love is blooming--for better or worse--in this captivating novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Island House and Secrets in Summer. A few years after losing her beloved husband, Alison is doing something she never thought she would do again: getting married. While placing the finishing touches on her summer nuptials, Alison is anxious to introduce her fiance, David, to her grown daughters: Felicity, a worried married mother of two, and Jane, also married but focused on her career. The sisters have a somewhat distant relationship and Alison hopes that the wedding and the weeks leading up to the ceremony will give the siblings a chance to reconnect, as well as meet and get to know David's grown children. As the summer progresses, it is anything but smooth sailing. Felicity stumbles upon a terrible secret that could shatter her carefully cultivated world. Jane finds herself under the spell of her soon-to-be stepbrother, Ethan, who is as charming as he is mysterious. And even Alison is surprised (and slightly alarmed) by her new blended family. Revelations, intrigue, resentments--as the Big Day approaches, will the promise of bliss be a bust? Against the gorgeous backdrop of the sunswept island of Nantucket, Nancy Thayer sets the stage for a walk down the aisle no one will ever forget"-- Provided by publisher.

Like all Nantucket books, "A Nantucket Wedding" is about life on the island more than life itself. Nancy Thayer has done a good job of creating characters and a plot that keep our interest. Alison and David are engaged to be married and plan to get married on the island. The book is all about Alison trying to bring her family and David's together as she prepares for the wedding.
It is towards the end of the book that Thayer, through David's toast, explains that a marriage is a private bond between two people while a wedding is a party for everyone. A wedding is a brief flash while a marriage is real life. A wedding is a fairy tale, but it is more than that; It is a promise that we will hold dear the joys of this fairy tale close to our hearts all through our marriage.
All in all a nice summer read.

I enjoyed reading this book. Nothing too deep about it; it's a light, fast reading story. I don't think I've read all of her books so I'll check into the others.
