Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

"Sail on Silver Girl. Sail on by.  Your time has come to shine.  All your dreams are on their way.”  Page 341

Meredith Delinn certainly didn’t feel like any dreams were coming true after her husband was arrested for stealing millions from investors.

Being the wife of an investment thief definitely was not pleasant.  Freddy had cheated investors out of millions, was finally caught, and made his family's life miserable.  He wouldn't talk to authorities about anything and wouldn't tell them that his wife and sons had nothing to do with his swindling of investors out of their money.  Meredith and her two sons were also under investigation.

So… Freddy was hauled off to jail for 150 years, Meredith left town with her best friend Connie.  They were staying at Connie's beach house in Nantucket....beautiful Nantucket where Meredith had to remain incognito since many investors lived there.

Despite her disguise, someone recognized Meredith and small assaults on Connie’s property started occurring.   They were blaming Meredith for Freddy’s thievery.

SILVER GIRL went from past to present describing the story behind each character and how they became the person they were today.   Many themes presented themselves…, health issues, social issues, family and friendship connections, and most evident.....GREED, BETRAYAL, and DECEIT.   All three were ruining  many lives including Meredith’s.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and became involved with the characters.   The characters were made of a great circle of friends tangled in situations since high school.  As you read the book, you will start to ask yourself:  Do I really know the people I have in my life relationships?  Well….hopefully we do, but the book definitely will make you question yourself.

 The book title plays a major role in solving the mystery that was also woven into the book.

I am giving Silver Girl an outstanding 5/5....Ms. Hilderbrand kept my interest from the first to the very last page.
