Summer Affair

This is another great summer read based in Nantucket.  The main character, Claire, with four kids, a husband and an already busy life, accepts an offer from Lock Dixon to be co-chair for the summer gala children’s benefit.  There was an accident involving Lock’s wife several years before and Claire still feels the guilt.  She pours her time, money, heart & soul into this gala.  As she continues an affair with Lock, she alienates her best friend and sister-in-law, Siobhan.  Siobhan is dealing with her own issues, gambling husband, sparks from an old love interest and a catering job she can’t handle alone.  The other co-chair for the gala is Isabelle French, who takes advantage every chance she gets to show off her money and prestige.  Throw in the fact that someone is skimming money from the donations and you’re got yourself an entertaining summer read.
