I like to read books set in places I'm visiting and these are next on my list. I recently read Tigers In Red Weather and loved it, does anyone know of others with a similar setting?

Happy Trails To You by Julie Hecht - seems to be a real Marmite book, but I loved it and found it hilarious.

Ahab's wife, by Sena Jeter Naslund is partially set in Nantucket if I remember correctly.. Really enjoyed it, now tempted to a re-read

The latest Jane Green is set in Nantucket I think.

Try Elin Hilderbrand, all her books are set in nantucket . Barefoot is especially good.

I'm reading The Beach House by James Patterson just now. A thriller set on Long Island.

I am so envy of you holidaying there!
I read a book a few years ago set in Sconset. Will try and remember what it was...
Though Judy Blume's children's books sometimes decamp there for holidays (one in the superfudge series I think)

OK, a quick Google makes me think it was Barefoot by Elin Hildebrand. It was a summer read, light but not unenjoyable. Set in Sconset.
Alice Hoffman's Illumination Night is also set on Martha's Vineyard.

Dear Doctor Lily by Monica Dickens - lots of it takes place on the Cape. Love all her books.
