Secrets and lies…at Nantucket’s most exclusive and glamorous, family-owned hotel.
The Whitley is Nantucket’s most exclusive waterfront hotel–a sprawling collection of pristine white cottages and an elegant main building on a long stretch of private, white sandy beach.
It’s a family owned business–brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, all work there in various capacities.
Paula is happy in her back office accounting position. But changes are in store when her grandfather promotes her and fires her cousin–who then blames Paula.
Meanwhile, a blond romantic comedy superstar is hiding out at The Hotel for a few months. She meets Paula’s brother, a chef–who has no idea who she is–and she likes it that way.
Paula’s grandfather also hires a consultant to help her settle into her new role. But she isn’t sure what to think of David, who grew up on Nantucket but now lives in Manhattan.
He’s a brilliant consultant and will be assessing Paula’s suitability for the role. He’s also home for another reason, a difficult family issue that makes Manhattan seem very far away.
A new family saga from the Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller author of The Nantucket Inn and The Restaurant.
“Did you save me a coconut shrimp?” The familiar, teasing voice surprised Paula. Her grandfather had snuck up on her while she was sipping wine and staring out at the ocean, lost in her thoughts.
“You made it!” She pulled him in for a hug and a kiss on the cheek. “Do you want something to drink? I was just about to get another glass of wine.”
He made a face. “You know I hate that stuff.” Her grandfather rarely drank and never wine. But once in a while he indulged. “Although, I think I will have a Kahlua Sombrero as we have something to celebrate. When you come back, let’s find somewhere to sit and chat.”
He looked excited and Paula wondered what he was up to. His trips to the New York office were usually pretty uneventful. Paula went to the service bar that was set up on the lawn, specifically for this event, and ordered their drinks. When she returned, she found her grandfather seated at a small cocktail table, away from the crowd, happily eating a stuffed mushroom with several coconut shrimp waiting for him.
“Have a seat. Have another shrimp. I got extra. I know they’re your favorite.”
Paula reached for a shrimp and they chatted for about ten minutes as her grandfather brought her up to speed on his trip. There was nothing unusual about it. When he finished his summary, he waved a server over who had a platter of pate on baguette slices and took one for each of them. He took a bite and then shocked her with his news.
“I let Andrea go yesterday, before I left for New York. That’s why I wanted you to be here.”
