Literary Loop

Swan Song by Elin HilderbrandWhen rich strangers move to Nantucket, social mayhem and a possible murder follow. Can the island’s best locals save the day and their way of life?

Chief of Police Ed Kapenash is about to retire. Blond Sharon, the notorious island gossip, is going through a divorce. But when a $22 million summer home is purchased by the mysterious Richardsons (how did they make their money, exactly?) Ed, Sharon and everyone in the community are swept up in high drama.

The Richardsons throw lavish parties, flirt with multiple locals, flaunt their wealth with not one but two yachts and raise impossible hopes of everyone they meet. When their house burns to the ground and their most essential employee goes missing, the entire island is up in arms.

The last of Elin Hilderbrand’s bestselling Nantucket novels, this is a propulsive medley of glittering gatherings, sun-soaked drama, wisdom and heart, featuring the return of some of her most popular characters and the timeless island of Nantucket.

“Hilderbrand’s final Nantucket novel will draw old and new readers out of the woodwork,” says Booklist. “This is aspirational escapism at its finest.”
