The Five-Star Weekend by Elin Hilderbrand Book Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Hotel Nantucket: After tragedy strikes, food blogger Hollis Shaw gathers four friends from different stages in her life to spend an unforgettable weekend on Nantucket.

Hollis Shaw’s life seems picture-perfect. She’s the creator of the popular food blog Hungry with Hollis and is married to Matthew, a dreamy heart surgeon. But after she and Matthew get into a heated argument one snowy morning, he leaves for the airport and is killed in a car accident. The cracks in Hollis’s perfect life—her strained marriage and her complicated relationship with her daughter, Caroline—grow deeper.

So when Hollis hears about something called a “Five-Star Weekend”—one woman organizes a trip for her best friend from each phase of her life: her teenage years, her twenties, her thirties, and midlife—she decides to host her own Five-Star Weekend on Nantucket. But the weekend doesn’t turn out to be a joyful Hallmark movie.

The husband of Hollis’s childhood friend Tatum arranges for Hollis’s first love, Jack Finigan, to spend time with them, stirring up old feelings. Meanwhile, Tatum is forced to play nice with abrasive and elitist Dru-Ann, Hollis’s best friend from UNC Chapel Hill. Dru-Ann’s career as a prominent Chicago sports agent is on the line after her comments about a client’s mental health issues are misconstrued online. Brooke, Hollis’s friend from their thirties, has just discovered that her husband is having an inappropriate relationship with a woman at work. Again! And then there’s Gigi, a stranger to everyone (including Hollis) who reached out to Hollis through her blog. Gigi embodies an unusual grace and, as it happens, has many secrets.

The Five-Star Weekend is a surprising and captivating story about friendship, love, and self-discovery set on Nantucket. It will be a weekend like no other.

Great Read!. Excellent from start to finish!

Easy and Fun Read. Enjoyed it immensely. Especially the food descriptions.

Disappointing. It was a very enjoyable read until the personality transformation overnight of Brook. Just because someone realizes that they are gay, it doesn’t immediately change their personality and even eating habits. Honestly! As my daughter would say, “Get real!”

Meh. Not nearly as good as Hotel Nantucket. The characters were too whiny and annoying to me.

Great Read. Probably my favorite book of hers. And I’ve read a lot. Very well written. Great story.

5 Stars!!!!. I throughly devoured this book!! The Best in several years for Elin. The savory ingredients in the story were mentally as delicious as Hollis’ food! KUDOS Elin!!

Enjoyable. I loved the premise of the book. Made me think who I would invite to a five star weekend. A tad predictable, but overall enjoyed the book. Friendships are important, but they ebb and tide, but having lost my own husband unexpectedly, I wouldn’t be where I am today without my girlfriends. Friends from the past and new friends who are now like old friends. Nice read.

Enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure at first, then wound up enjoying the characters and story lines as much as I always do with Elgin’s books.

So good!. Loved every minute of this book!

The Five Star Weekend. I loved this book, all of it. The characters, the locations, the sincerity, “controlled” drama 😉 Ms. Hilderbrand I’ve enjoyed every book I’ve read by you. Please don’t stop sharing your amazing talent.

Outstanding!!. Outstanding! Loved every word on every page! 👏👏

MUST READ!!!. Elin doesn’t disappoint with this book. I cannot wait to go to Nantucket next week.

Totally predictable. I have read several of her books and this was not up to her usual standard. It was very much like one of the “Real Housewives “ tv shows which she actually mentions in the book. Perhaps that was her goal and I missed the message.

Great Summer read. I’m never disappointed by Elin Hildebrande books. This is no exception. It was enjoyable from beginning to end and hard to put down. A great summer read.

Soap opera relationship drama done tastefully. This is a great summer read. There is a lot of relationship drama, so this might bother some people. The descriptions of home decor, Nantucket scenery and fabulous food are wonderful as usual.

Another summer love!!!. EH is sooooooo good!!! I look forward to each new book and this one did not fail! The story is delightful in every way! The characters are fun and quirky and a lot like people we all have in our lives. Friendship is a theme EH knows and writes to perfection.

The Five Star Weekend. I have read every single one of Elin Hildebrand’s books and absolutely loved the all. The Five Star Weekend blew them all away! I never wanted it to end. Her best one yet!

Bravo. Awesome book! So sad the Nantucket books are ending. You’ve taken me away many times and I appreciate it. You’ve made me know and feel the Island of Nantucket and I’ve never been. Some day,,,,

Great Beach Book. Fun and easy read

Really enjoyed. Great read

Perfect summer read. Great book!

5 Stars for The Five Star Weekend. Fabulously written. My absolute favorite book of all Elin Hilderbrand.

Worth the wait!. So sad I already finished it! As always, Elin’s descriptions of the characters, Nantucket, and the food truly transport you. This is one of my favorite books I have read in a while. It makes you contemplate the important relationships in life and helps you stop and remember that everyone is going through something. It also makes you crave lobster rolls and a beer on the beach. A perfect summer read.

Fluffy, skimmable. fluffy, sometimes entertaining sometimes have to skim.

Amazing writing.. I felt as if I knew each one of the women from past friendships and experiences. The author makes her books feel so real. I love the directions she takes her characters and the strengths she sees in each one. And of course, the fun and joy of ‘being along for the ride’!

Predictable. I had a hard time getting connected to the characters and the emotional connection I usually have to her books was lacking for me. I got through it, but sadly wasn’t soon enough.

A Definite Beach Read for the Summer 🖤⛱️📖🕶️🧋👙. I absolutely loved this book ❤️ It’s absolutely a definite book for your beach bag. The Hotest Beach Read for the summer 🧋🕶️📖👙⛱️❤️

5 STAR WEEKEND. I have read many of her books but this one was a disappointment. Not much character development and very superficial, gossipy, whining characters and no significant issues. One of my favorite authors so I will try again.

Great Read!. By far, one of my favorite books from this author. Characters were well written. Yes, I could see the twist coming, but it was amazingly told. I couldn’t put it down.

Did not receive whole book after paid. Paid for book to read and only received 39 pages. Book is 400 pages.

Awesome. A perfect blend of great character development and great timing of the character development, interwoven with a great assortment of wonderful food recipes, therefore a wonderful mix of fiction and nonfiction.

Must read!. This is the first of Elin Hilderbrand's books I have read and I'm so glad I did! The setting in Nantucket was exactly what I was looking for as a quick summer escape read. The characters were so interesting in their own lives and I love how she brought all of them together. I just purchased another one her books and I won't stop till I've read them all, I love her style!

LOVE!!. Elin did it again! This book was fabulous! I’m never disappointed in anything she writes!

A great “lay in the hammock” summer read.. Loved the premise of this book. The thought of bringing together four people from the various decades of your life sounds intriguing and frightening all at once. A great read. Would recommend to anyone in the mood for an emotion packed, and heartfelt story.
