After their mother had passed away, Caroline Marris follows her sisters Gracie Gold and Sam Carter to the Nantucket Island for a getaway. The sisters have fond memories of staying at the Misty Harbor Inn when they were children, but they are shocked to find the inn is now closed.
Their mother adored the Inn and Caroline can't see the building go to waste, so she talks her sisters into buying it. Gracie and Sam is surprised that their care-free sister is wanting to go into business with them, but they agree to run the hotel with her, even though Gracie is hesitant to move away from her home and her grandchildren.
The sisters are curious about the history of the Inn and run across a startling discovery when they find a few old postcards. It seems the young widow, Hannah Montague, of the original owner mysteriously disappeared in 1880.
Seaside Harmony is a charming start to a new series that is written by four authors (Patti Berg, Pam Andrews & Barbra Hanson, and Camy Tang). There is a lot mystery hidden in the Misty Harbor Inn as the sister try to uncover what happened to Hannah Montague, while at the same time they try to remodel the old Inn. Book one in the series is a delight to read and I recommend it to everyone.
Caroline Marris and her sisters, Gracie Gold and Sam Carter, are finally opening up The Misty Harbor Inn in the sequel Sunflower Summer. Spring is in the air and the Nantucket Island is getting ready for the Daffodil Festival, which is the perfect time for the sisters to officially open the Inn.
Their first guests are a newlywed couple. One would think this would be great, but the couple's marriage is already falling apart before they arrive at the Inn.
Moving away from the home and her family has been hard on the middle sister, Gracie Gold, even though it is just for the summer to help her sisters out, like driving the Packard station wagon in the Daffodil parade. When she isn't helping to advertise the Inn, she is outside planting sunflowers. Gracie is a great addition to the Inn and her sisters want to try to keep her there.
The younger sister, Sam Carter, discovers a hidden room that might help her finally unravel the mystery of Hannah Montague, who vanished from the Inn without a clue over one hundred years ago.
Sometimes sequels can be somewhat of a letdown, but not with Sunflower Summer, which I read back-to-back with the first book, Seaside Harmony. The talented team of writers writing under the pen name Evangeline Kelly has once again written a solid novel full of drama and mystery. Typically, I would never read a book centered on women in their sixties, but the characters are so realistically written that I couldn't stop enjoying these characters. I do hope the authors will continue the series as I would love to visit Misty Harbor Inn again.
About the Authors:
