Great beach book

From start to end you don not want to put this book down. Great author !

Not my favorite EH book

I wanted to love this one but I just couldn’t! 😩 I loved the restaurant setting and drama that this book was centered around but the characters fell flat to me. Thatcher came off as creepy, Adrienne seemed desperate, and Fiona was distant. Their struggles were, at times, relatable but a lot of them seemed far fetched. There was a lot of food talk in this one so if you’re looking for a book that will make your mouth water -this is it! Elin Hilderbrand is one of my favorite authors and, even though this one didn’t work for me, I will still buy anything she writes! 📖

Great Beach Read

I loved this book even more than Hilderbrand's other books. After reading Blue Bistro I wanted to visit the restaurant, her vivid descriptions of the sunsets on the beach, the food sounded wonderful. I thought the story was very touching about a friendship that could be broken by nothing else (Thatcher and Fiona). I grew up in Massachusetts and never visited the island of Nantucket, I now visit it through Elin's books, I have read them all and I feel like I am there each time. Maybe one of these summers I will get there!

A perfect summer read!

I have read all of Elin's books. I have to say this is her best yet! I can't wait for her next one. This is a great book that brings you inside a bistro and several people's lives. It is a heartwarming story and really makes you think of the characters long after the book is completed!

My favorite

his has been the most emotional of Elin's books. The Blue Bistro is an upscale, totally different restaurant where the staff is a family. There are a few visits from the staff at the Beach Club, Elin's first novel, which really helps to build the vision of the town, having never been there. The book starts off by a young girl coming moving to town with no money or much of anything in her life, being taken under the wing by the co-owner of the restaurant and then falling in love with him. The relationships within the Blue Bistro are so complex and emotional, it's hard to put this book down!

the best yet.

I grew up in and around the local Nantucket restaurants scene. Ellen nails the feel of working and playing in a seasonal summer restaurant, where love, money, food, drugs, sex, travel and alcoholl, are all part of creating a passion play that lasts all but a few short months. A chef on the rock.

Blue Bistro is another winner!

I have enjoyed all of Elin Hilderbrand's books but this is the best so far! Her books are vivid reminders of the wonderful place that is Nantucket but more importantly her character development is exquisite. The characters in all her books have drawn me in but none more than Adrienne Dealey. While the book is a page turner, I hated for the book to end. I look forward to the next adventure and love story form Elin.
