Heat Wave: A Novel by Nancy Thayer

Unerringly perceptive, superbly written, every page packed with the warmth and compassionate wisdom that have become Nancy Thayers trademark, Heat Wave tells the moving story of a woman who, after her seemingly perfect life unravels, must find the strength to live and love again. Making the startling discovery that her family finances are in dire straits is only the latest shock endured by Carley Winsted after her husbands sudden death from a heart attack. Resisting her in-laws well-meaning overtures to take in Carley and her two daughters, the young widow instead devises a plan to keep her family in their beloved home, a grand historic house on the island of Nantucket. The solution is right at Carleys front door: transforming her expensive, expansive house into a bed-and-breakfast. Not everyone, however, thinks this plan prudent or quite respectable-especially not Carleys mother-in-law. Further complicating a myriad of challenges, a friend forces Carley to keep a secret that, if revealed, will undo families and friendships. When her late husbands former law partner keeps showing up at the most unexpected times, Carley must cope with an array of mixed feelings. And then, during a late-summer heat wave, the lives of Carley and her friends and family will be forever changed in entirely unexpected ways. Lyrical, emotional, dramatic, and ultimately wonderfully uplifting, Nancy Thayers latest novel is compelling from its first page to its last.
