Sneak Peek: Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

Sneak Peek at the Pages of....is a new feature I'm going to post periodically at Lip Gloss and Literature in which I will feature books I'm currently reading, about to read or want to read. Some of these may be debut novels, new releases and others may be oldies but goodies. I hope with "Sneak Peek", I can introduce you to more, great women's fiction and chick lit novels to check out. Enjoy and don't forget to check back later in the month for a Review of the Sneak Peek featured book.   

Silver Girl is the latest in women’s fiction from Elin Hilderbrand. She has attracted a substantial following, most known for her popular, beach-themed books with titles such as Barefoot, The Island, The Castaways, A Summer Affair and Nantucket Nights, among a few others. Living on a remote island off of Massachusetts, I imagine Elin Hilderbrand finds peace, solace and inspiration for her novels in her small community of Nantucket. Being a Cape Cod “transplant” myself, I am even more eager to engage in her contemporary, romantic women’s fiction books.

Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing - because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.

Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby - Meredith's high school boyfriend - arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.

Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.

Synopsis provided by Goodreads. Silver Girl has already received an average rating of 4.19 Stars on the social networking site for book lovers and addicts everywhere, Goodreads.
