Blog Tour: Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn

About the Book:
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.

Readers will delight in the inviting setting and be enthralled by the adventures of these sisters who reunite to bring their mother's Misty Harbor dreams to life.

About the Book:
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.

Readers will delight in the inviting setting and be enthralled by the adventures of these sisters who reunite to bring their mother's dream to reality.

My Comments:
These books were delightful! They have romance and mystery.  They not only focus on the relationship between the sisters but also on the other relationships in their lives.  The sisters range in age from the early fifties to the early sixties.  One is a single mom who recently became an empty nester.  Another is a recently widowed grandmother. The third is a single career woman who has never settled down.  As they work to acquire and open the inn they have to explore what is important to them in life and how they want to spend their later middle years.  They learn new talents and to appreciate those they've always had.

While classified as Christian fiction it is on the milder  end of the spectrum and only those who hate any mention of God, faith or religion should have a problem with the religion in this book.

I'd like to thank the publisher for providing a complimentary review copy via Litfuse.  I look forward to reading other books in this series.  Grade B+
