Up and Coming: Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

Release Date: May 7, 2013

Cricket normally spends her summers babysitting and missing her friends who are all off on interesting vacations or at the beach. This summer is supposed to be different, she's been invited to go to Nantucket with her dearest friend Jules and her family.

But when a tragedy changes her plans, Cricket needs to make her own way. She's determined to still have a wonderful beach summer, no matter what. So, even when the only job she can find is doing house-cleaning for a bed and breakfast, Cricket jumps at it.

This was supposed to be the summer of Jules and Cricket, but instead Jules barely sees to have the time or interest to even say hello to her. Luckily Cricket makes fast friends with the other people working at the B&B and she even charms one of the guests who is working on a biography into hiring her on as an assistant. But nothing about this summer is the way that she'd pictured it: Will Cricket be able to have the summer she's always dreamed of without her best friend? Can a new romance replace the good times she was supposed to be having?

Are you heading to the beach this summer? Throw this one in with your picnic basket, Cricket is the perfect companion for a summer afternoon in the sun. Her choices are not always perfect, but she's always trying her best and you can't help but wish that things will turn out for her.
