The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand (42)
Very enjoyable book! The Castaways is about 8 people, 4 married couples, living on the island of Nantucket. As the story opens, one of the couples is found drowned while on a boating excursion to celebrate an anniversary. Each of the remaining six in the Castaway group is affected in a profound and different way by the deaths. A mystery regarding why this couple drowned is more or less resolved as the book nears its final pages, so that I found myself hardly able to put it down.
