Postcards from Misty Harbor Series!
When Caroline Marris joins her sisters, Gracie Gold and Sam Carter for a Nantucket Island getaway, she has no idea how it will change her life. The sisters stumble upon Misty Harbor Inn, the place their late mother loved so much, and Caroline talks her sisters into buying the beautiful but dilapidated inn. But can free-spirited Caroline stay focused enough to make opening the inn a reality?
Hand-drawn old postcards draw the sisters into the mystery of Hannah Montague, the young widow of the original owner. Can the sisters uncover the fate of this woman who disappeared in 1880? As Caroline and her sisters work together to make their mom’s dream a reality, they bond in ways they never expected.
Misty Harbor Inn officially opens, and Gracie Gold, the middle Marris sister, wrestles with an overwhelming decision. As the sisters learn the day-to-day workings of running an inn, Gracie counsels its first guests, newlyweds whose honeymoon seems to be ending before it begins.
Meanwhile, Sam’s discovery of a clue in a secret room sheds unflattering light on Hannah Montague, who vanished from the house more than one hundred years ago. And as Gracie and Caroline welcome guests to the inn, they are delighted to see how God uses it — and them — to deepen relationships and transform lives.
This is a delightful tale of three sisters, Caroline, Gracie, and Sam, who are retired and wanting to rebuild their relationships. They decide to buy a run down Inn where they vacationed as children, over 50 years ago. Owning the Inn was a dream of their mother's. As they refurbish the Inn they learn a lot about each other and learn there is a mystery waiting to be solved. The disappearance of a woman back in the 1800's.
I enjoyed the descriptions of Nantucket, it sounds like a nice place to visit. The women are strong and the other residents of Nantucket are pleasant. In SEASIDE HARMONY the saga continues as the sisters open the Inn. A young couple on their honeymoon are guests and are having trouble in their marriage already. Grace does a good job of counseling them. There's more on the missing woman from the first book.
I thought this was a sweet novel, a fun read, if you like cozy mysteries you'll like this series.
I received a copy of these books from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
