"The Postcards From Misty Harbor series" by Evangeline Kelley

A mother's dream becomes her children's goal in the Misty Harbor series. Her dream was to open a bed and breakfast by the shore they all loved. What awaits Caroline, Gracie, and Sam as they embark on their new adventure? Two books compose this series. "Seaside Harmony," and "Sunflower Summer," making for some wonderful summer reading.

"Seaside Harmony" finds the girls working together to open the Inn. Their mother has died, and Nantucket and the Misty Harbor Inn had been favorites of hers. It stands to reason they would go there to heal from the loss, but then they find the Inn is for sale and are convinced to buy it. To say it needs work is an understatement. This act of honoring their mother draws the sisters closer, and they find more love goes into the project than they expect. What do the postcards they find have to do with them? Who are they from?

"Sunflower Summer" is the second book in the series. With the Inn open, the sisters are ready for customers. Their first customers are newlyweds with a problem. Can they help them? Should they get involved? Each sister wants to do what is right, but will they all stay to work at the Inn? Sam finds a secret room. Does it have anything to do with Hannah Montague? Come on, spend a relaxing day with Caroline, Gracie, and Sam as they work through problems and grow closer to each other and God. 

Sisters have a special bond, and these three are no exception. Ms. Kelley creates scenes and characters that are lifelike and interesting. Watching the sisters gain more confidence in their relationships was one of my favorite things. Come solve the mystery of the postcards. If you are looking for a beach/vacation read, or simply enjoy stories that include you, these books are for you. I received my review copies from Litfuse Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Book Info
More about the books:

The Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn series (Guideposts Books) introduces readers to Caroline, Gracie and Sam as they gather for a vacation where they spent the summers as children, and follows their adventures as they fulfill their mother's dream of opening a bed and breakfast. As the sisters heal from their mother's passing, they bond in ways they never imagined and discover evidence of God's hand in the unlikeliest of circumstances.

A team of four authors come together under the pen name of Evangeline Kelley to bring the unique personalities of each sister to vivid life and welcome audiences to the charming and historic island of Nantucket, complete with cobblestone streets, quaint shops, ferries, sandy beaches and salty air.

Seaside Harmony:

Three sisters, a charming inn, hints of mystery and romance, and a gorgeous seaside setting. Summer reading at its finest!

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.

Sunflower Summer:

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.
