❝ Adrienne Dealey has spent the past six years working for hotels in exotic resort towns. This summer she has decided to make Nantucket home. Left flat broke by her ex-boyfriend, she is desperate to earn some fast money.

And why does such a successful restaurant seem to be in its final season before closing its doors for good?
