#151: Silver Girl - Elin Hildebrand

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.

My Opinion:
I wish this had been a paperback or hardcover instead of an audiobook, as I feel I absorb more when I see the words.
With that said, the audio didn't deter me from loving it! I found myself stopping what I was doing to give the cd player my undivided attention. No other audiobook before this has had that effect on me.
I loved that Richard Castle was a character in the story too. In case you don't recognize the name, he is an author and also a character on tv in the self titled show, Castle. I couldn't help picture the actor that plays him when his character was mentioned.
I really like Meredith, she's a cool girl. I'd love to read more of Meredith and Connie as they were great characters and I felt like they were women that I already know. Very familiar personalities.
I also want to say I love where the title of the book comes from. Now you'll hate for this, but I refuse to say why, except you HAVE to red the book to find out! I don't want to spoil it.


4/5


Recommend?
Yes, but get a print copy.
