Review:

To honor their late mother, the Marris sisters bought the Misty Harbor Inn on the Nantucket Island, despite the fact they are all in their 50's. The youngest sister, Sam Carter, is looking forward to entering her mother's blackberry cobbler recipe in the Summerfest baking fest, as winning the contest would be a great way to promote the Inn, but it is not going to be easy as the previous winner plans on keeping the title no matter what the costs.

Misty Harbor Inn has its own secrets, which the sisters have been trying to unravel to what happened to the original owner's young widow, Hannah Montague, who mysteriously disappeared in the year 1880. Now their most recent guest, an elderly woman, may be the only the person who can unravel the mystery for them. The woman shows them a photo album that will change their lives. It seems their mother had lived at the Inn as a child, something she had never mentioned to them when she was alive.

Why did their mother lie? What was she hiding?

Finally, the sisters will find out truth of what happened to Hannah Montague and learn about their own past.

I enjoyed reading the first two books, Seaside Harmony & Sunflower Summer, and I was eager to sign up to review the third installment, which I received a free copy from Litfuse Publicity Group and Guidepost Books in exchange for my honest thoughts. The characters may be twenty years older than me, but I easily connected with them as they feel like real people rather than fiction characters from a book. Whispers on the Dock is full of humor, mystery, and faith. Overall, I loved reading the book and I hope the authors consider continuing the series as I would like to see more stories about other guests staying at the Inn.
