Two couples' lives become scandalously entwined in the latest from New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand.

Nantucket writer Madeline King has a new novel coming out, The Rumor, and it's got bestseller potential. But Madeline is terrified, because in her desperation to revive her career, she's done the unthinkable: The Rumor reveals the truth behind an actual affair involving her best friend, Grace.

And that's not the only strain on Madeline and Grace's friendship; one fateful night, the two women argue, voicing jealousies and resentments that have built for twenty years. Bereft of each other, they get caught in the snares of a mysterious and destructive stranger. Their fate hinges on The Rumor -- and the secret it reveals.

THE RUMOR is an irresistible novel about the power of gossip to change the course of events, and the desire of people to find their way back to what really matters.

    Great book, simplistic style, intriguing characters and gossip mongers galore. Good reminder that people are so limited when left to their own imagination. Let the dogs bark but the caravan moves on.
  • Great book!

    Blah. So unrealistic and all characters unlikable. The worst part was the idiotic dialogue had by teenagers. Ugh.

    I absolutely enjoyed this book. Very entertaining. I was interested in the characters long after the book ended. Erin left me wanting more of that crazy, fun Nantucket life. I look forward to reading her next book!

    I love all of her books, but this one Erin knocked out of the park. The character development and relationships were amazing. I loved it.

    I have loved this author's books and was excited to see a new one. I am sorry to say that it was extremely disappointing. The plot was weak and unbelievable and the characters were not fully developed in a way that you cared about their outcome. The ending was a disappointment as well. Save your money and hope Elin Hildeebrand's next book is better!
