Lisa Hodges needs to make a decision fast. Thanks to her dead husband’s gambling addiction, their savings is almost gone. In her early fifties with a large, waterfront home on Nantucket to support, Lisa hasn’t worked in over thirty years, has no in-demand skills and is virtually unemployable.
Her only options are to sell the house and move off-island, or, she could use her cooking and entertaining skills and turn her home into a bed and breakfast. She desperately needs it to succeed because she has four grown children with problems of their own and wants to stay close to them.
her oldest daughter, Kate, has a fabulous career in Boston--working as a writer for a popular fashion magazine and engaged to a dangerously handsome, photographer, who none of them have met.
Kate's twin, local artist, Kristen, has been reasonably content with her on-again off-again relationship with an older, separated businessman.
Her son, Chase, runs his own construction business and is carefree, happily dating here and there but nothing serious.
Youngest daughter, Anna, is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and they've been trying to have a baby. But it hasn't happened yet, and Anna wonders if it's a sign that maybe their marriage isn't as perfect as everyone thinks.
Come visit Nantucket and see how Lisa's new bed and breakfast has an impact on almost everyone in her family. It's the first book in a new series that will follow the Hodges family, friends, and visitors to Nantucket's Beach Plum Cove Inn.
I really liked this small town story. It is a simple feel good, clean story. I liked the fact that the siblings all wanted to help each other throughout the book. It is a quick read too.
The plot is trite, utterly predictable. This book has not even been edited properly! There are blatant errors such as substituting one character’s name for another. (The author literally forgot which sister was the artist! )The author can’t seem to remember what she wrote several pages earlier, describing a character wearing a long sleeved dress on one page, and two pages later placing her in opera gloves! There are many typos as well. I would not read anything else written by this author.
Fabulous, fantastic,awesome, amazing ! Absolutely Great Excellent job! Thank You
