The Van Meters have gathered at their family retreat on the island of Waskeke to celebrate the marriage of daughter Daphne to the impeccably appropriate Greyson Duff. The weekend is full of champagne, salt air and practiced bonhomie, but long-buried discontent and simmering lust stir beneath the surface.
Winn Van Meter, father of the bride, is not having a good time. Barred from the exclusive social club he’s been eyeing since birth, he’s also tormented by an inappropriate crush on Daphne’s beguiling bridesmaid, Agatha, and the fear that his daughter, Livia—recently heartbroken by the son of his greatest rival—is a too-ready target for the wiles of Greyson’s best man. When old resentments, a beached whale and an escaped lobster are added to the mix, the wedding that should have gone off with military precision threatens to become a spectacle of misbehavior.

Too much background not enough dialog. Boring
The writing is this book is lovely. The author has excellent training and she shines when she describes settings, and the settings are fun! Harvard clubs and exclusive summer beach houses. If you want a dreamy book about these places and the people who inhabit them, then this would be a great choice. However, if you are looking for more substance or excitement then maybe pass on this one. I would give this book a five for prose but a two for plot development and character arcs.
I agree with previous review. The writing was 4 star but the plot had no substance. I'm glad I had a copy from the library rather than purchase this book. I didn't think it was worth finishing. I give it one star.
