Summary (cr: goodreads)

Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.

In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother—a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career—if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.

The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes—and mouth—are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

The reason why I am a bit reluctant on reading a new romance series is the fact that it could be a make or break for me. I could either move on or be addicted as I devour the next books. This was recommended by my sister and I gladly enjoyed it. A small town, three sisters on a mission and a hot guy; those are the makings of an interesting start. This story focuses on Maddie 'The Mouse', as her mother fondly calls her, the middle timid sister. I love how the sisters gradually build their relationship as they renovate the inn their mother left them and also at how witty and amusing their conversations were. I had this guess about Tara's situation but maybe I would find out in the next installment of the series if what I'm thinking is true.

Till the next read...
