    One thought on “One Summer: The Blue Bistro / The Love Season”

    1. 3.5 stars. The Blue Bistro: I didn't have to worry about applying sunscreen with this romance; it was an extremely slow burn. But something compelled me to keep reading. Even at the end I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Which about the ending: I'm not at all a fan of the maybe-they-did / maybe-they-didn't make it ending. Overall, this book just left me sad. The Love Season: I liked this one better than the first. Maybe because I was prepared to be left unsatisfied, which, overall, I wasn't. [...]

    2. Good book, was hard to put down once I got started in it. The characters are quite believable. The relationship between Thatcher and Fiona was deep and seemed so sad due to the circumstances. I have now added Nantucket to my bucket list and hope to visit there soon.

    3. This book came just in time for my reading during late spring/early summer reading. This book comes this reissue of two beloved Elin Hilderbrand classics, filled with double the sun, sand, drama and romance that fans love. In The Blue Bistro, Adrienne Dealey has decided to relocate to Nantucket after spending the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns. She's just trying to earn some quick money, never bargaining on Thatcher Smith, the owner of the hottest restaurant on the isla [...]

    4. The Blue Bistro - Adrienne moves to Nantucket, after working in hotels for 6 years and a failed relationship. She meets a restaurant owner who hires her the morning she arrives as a hostess although she has no restaurant experience. She falls in love with the pace, the food, the guests and a relationship begins with the owner. The owner has been friends since childhood with the co owner and their strong friendship takes priority over all other relationships which Thatcher has. The summer is one [...]

    5. Took me forever to read this one. Elin hilderbrand isn't a bad author but this combination of books was just sappy. The first: The Blue Bistro was over 300 pages long! It shouldn't have been the story was dead by page 150. The story building didn't work and added no substance at all. Adrienne and thatchers relationship was supposed to be the focal along with his friendship with Fiona. Neither was developed. The conflict was barely recognisable. The second book: The Love Season. I tried the first [...]

    6. The Love SeasonSo-so, only two stars, slow going, somewhat boring, ending is disappointing.t one of Elin's better projects.Tried to start The Blue Bistro three times. Just couldn't get any further than 5 or 6 pages, boring as hell, nothing to spark my interestry disappointed in this purchase. 2016 started Blue Bistro for the fourth time, just finished it. so-so reading.

    7. I really enjoyed reading the 2 books. However, the first book, The Blue Bistro, in my opinion, was much more enjoyable to read. I was able to read that book quickly as the other book, The Love Season, took me a bit longer. At times, it felt like it was dragging a bit and a bit more predictable.

    8. Re: The Blue Bistro- Simply stated, it had the potential to be a Great love story. The final scene ended so 'up in the air' that I really wanted an epilogue. I didn't feel there was enough content to insinuate Adrienne and Thatcher's happily ever after, which was pretty disappointing. Can't win then all

    9. The blue bistro I liked and read through quickly. The live season was a chore to read. I just couldn't get into it.

    10. This is the first Elin Hilderbrand novel I've read. I enjoyed her story telling. Both were good stories. Well written. I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

    11. Blue Bistro was much better than The Love Season Ending was disappointing.Skip the second one and just read The Bistro4 star for Blue Bistro; 2 star for the other Hilderbrand.

    12. The Blue Bistro was a really good book. Tried to read the second book the love season but just could not get into reading it.

    13. I loved the story but was a little disappointed about how the ending was rushed. However, it was a great read and makes me want to cook something spectacular!
