Book Description:

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.

My Overall Feeling of the Book:

What a perfect book!  I really wish I could actually go visit the Misty Harbor Inn.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the purchase and renovation of the Inn.

The relationship between the three sisters was very entertaining.  I don't have any sisters, but my mother has several so I used them as a reference point as I read.  Their love, and their squabbles, are so true to life which made the story even better.

The setting was amazing!  I could picture myself with the sisters at the rental cottage, at the beach, shopping and finally at the Inn.

I was so caught up in the mystery of Hannah Montague right along with the characters.  I wish we would have found out more about her but I have hopes that the second book will continue with the unsolved mystery.

A Brief Excerpt:
"Gracie set down her book and rubbed the bridge of her nose.  "If I had to venture a guess, I'd say she's at the Misty Harbor Inn right now, snooping around again."

Sigh...  Can I please go there?
