Are you looking for a few fabulous books to kick off your summer reading season? If so, I have the perfect series to recommend to you!
The series is called Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn by Evangeline Kelley – the pen name of a four-member writing collaboration.
There are currently two books in this series from GuidePosts: Seaside Harmony and Sunflower Summer. The third book, Whispers On The Dock, is scheduled for release on August 1, 2013.
Seaside Harmony and Sunflower Summer tell the story of three baby-boomer-aged sisters – Caroline Marris, Gracie Gold, and Sam Carter – who have reunited six months after the death of their mother for a summer vacation.
Although they haven’t visited there in decades, they choose Nantucket Island – a spot that holds many fond family memories for them – as their destination. They soon stumble across the Misty Harbor Inn – a place they visited as children and their mother dreamed of owning.
However, their visit to Misty Harbor Inn does not turn out as planned. The sisters learn that the once stately Misty Harbor Inn has changed hands many times over the years and is now up for sale, having been abandoned by its current owners.
Even though it is currently in a state of dreadful disrepair, the eldest sister Caroline – the dreamer and visionary of the group – envisions the three sisters pooling together their inheritance money, buying the Inn, and transforming it into a bed and breakfast to carry on their mother’s legacy. Unfortunately, her sister’s hearts, families and interests lie elsewhere. Neither Gracie nor Sam share Caroline’s initial vision for or enthusiasm towards the Inn.
Will the sisters’ interest in the Misty Harbor Inn wax or wane as they dig up the Inn’s past and learn that its history includes rumors of secret rooms, missing persons, and other unsolved crimes and mysteries?
Will long-standing tensions and conflicts between the sisters erupt over time, or will they find a way to work out their differences and draw closer together?
In the end, the idyllic Misty Harbor Inn serves as the catalyst that fuels the flame for the life-changing decisions each sister must make – decisions that will impact not only their individual fates, but will seal their corporate futures as well.
What I enjoyed most about these two books were the engaging, true-to-life characters you’ll meet throughout the book and the interplay between them and the mystery surrounding the Misty Harbor Inn. If you are looking for a light, fun read that will provide a perfect escape – be sure to travel to the Misty Harbor Inn this summer!
