Just in time for summer vacation comes this reissue of two beloved Elin Hilderbrand classics, filled with double the sun, sand, drama and romance that fans love. In The Blue Bistro, Adrienne Dealey has decided to relocate to Nantucket after spending the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns. She's just trying to earn some quick money, never bargaining on Thatcher Smith, the owner of the hottest restaurant on the island. He's the only one to offer her a job, despite her lack of restaurant experience, and things seem to be going smoothly until Thatch makes Adrienne break one of her cardinal rules: Never date the boss. Should she open her heart for the first time, or move on, as she always does?
In The Love Season, Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade. But this all changes with a phone call from her goddaughter, Renata Knox, whom Marguerite has not seen since the death of Renatas mother fourteen years earlier. Now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiance, she takes the opportunity to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her own mothers lifeand death. But the events of a day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned. The Love Story is a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades.
