By the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Summer of '69: Their secret love affair has lasted for decades - but this could be the summer that changes everything!

When Mallory Blessing's son, Link, receives deathbed instructions from his mother to call a number on a slip of paper in her desk drawer, he's not sure what to expect. But he certainly does not expect Jake McCloud to answer. It's the late spring of 2020 and Jake's wife, Ursula DeGournsey, is the frontrunner in the upcoming Presidential election.

There must be a mistake, Link thinks. How do Mallory and Jake know each other?

Flash back to the sweet summer of 1993: Mallory has just inherited a beachfront cottage on Nantucket from her aunt, and she agrees to host her brother's bachelor party. Cooper's friend from college, Jake McCloud, attends, and Jake and Mallory form a bond that will persevere -- through marriage, children, and Ursula's stratospheric political rise -- until Mallory learns she's dying.

Based on the classic film Same Time Next Year (which Mallory and Jake watch every summer), 28 Summers explores the agony and romance of a one-weekend-per-year affair and the dramatic ways this relationship complicates and enriches their lives, and the lives of the people they love.

A hurricane ravages New England, and bodies and secrets are piling up on a secluded island off Nantucket.
 
As a Category 3 hurricane bears down on New England over the final weekend in September, a luxury yacht grounds on the shoals surrounding a deserted barrier island off the western end of Nantucket. When the Coast Guard responds, they find two people shot in the boat’s cabin, one of whom dies before reaching the hospital. Nantucket Police Detective Meredith Folger is called in to investigate—three days before her long-anticipated wedding.

As the hurricane batters her beloved island and house full of wedding guests, Merry Folger struggles to unravel a tangle of false identities, missing guns, and a cargo of heroin that’s left one man in a coma, fighting to survive. But is he a victim, or a killer?

"A Walk Around Nantucket" is a stunning coloring book for adults created by Scott Widmeyer and Alan Yount and illustrated by local artist Paul McCarthy from Nantucket Carving and Folkart. 

A 54 page book that includes 19 iconic scenes from around Nantucket (the three lighthouses, a typical Sconset cottage, the Crooked House in Madaket, the Windmill, and many others).  And the pièce de résistance with the Nantucket coloring book is that it will include 16 post cards with exquisite Nantucket scenes also ready for coloring. “Our book is of, by, and for Nantucket, and we are so excited to share it with the community,” noted Widmeyer and Yount.

Adult coloring books have become a popular way to relieve stress and calm down in our digital world of instant gratification. We hope that A Walk Around Nantucket will help visitors and residents alike tap into their inner artist, slow down, and see the island in a new way. The postcards included at the end of the book will let you send your vision out to your friends, opening their eyes to our beautiful little island.  So, sit down, turn your phones and computers off, and take “a walk around Nantucket” with your colored pencils, markers, watercolors, or any other medium.

Some of the creator's proceeds from the sales of the Nantucket Coloring Book will go back to the Island's Indepdendent Bookstores Mitchell's + Bookworks!

From star-crossed matches to unexpected love triangles, summer on Nantucket always holds the promise of romance in this sensational novel from New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer.

Lisa Hudson feels more alive than she has in a long time after hiring hunky carpenter Mack Whitney to renovate her old Nantucket home. There's no denying the spark growing between them--despite the fact that Mack is ten years her junior. But her twentysomething children, Juliet and Theo, on the island for the summer, worry that the new relationship will only lead to Lisa's heartbreak.

Yet Juliet and Theo are in for tangled love stories all their own. When dreamy Cooper Hastings moves to the island to pursue a new environmental venture, Juliet feels an unwelcome attraction, her rocky romantic history pushing her to steer clear of love. Theo only has eyes for Mack's daughter, Bethany, with whom he was bound by an unspeakable tragedy in high school--but can they overcome their past? By August, when an impending storm threatens to shatter the peace of the golden island, everyone discovers what they can and cannot control. Nancy Thayer dazzles again with this new tale of a magical summer.


A Thousand Leagues of Blue: The Pacific Whaling Voyages of Charles and Susan Veeder of Nantucket by Betsy Tyler.

This beautifully illustrated, 230-page hardcover publication is the true story of the trials and tribulations of a family enmeshed in the whaling industry and the ensuing drama and destruction wrought by this brutal pursuit.

In the center of the tale is an ordinary woman, Susan Veeder, who led an extraordinary life. She lived on a whaleship for more than four years, recorded her experiences in a rare, illustrated journal, and then settled back into her Nantucket home while her husband and sons all returned to the sea, on voyage after voyage. In a shocking denouement to their lives, Susan’s husband, Charles Veeder, a respected and successful whaling captain, devolved into a drunken madman, became enamored of a Polynesian woman and chose to remain in the South Seas for the rest of his life.
