Postcards From Misty Harbor Inn Series: A Blog Tour and Review

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.

My Review:

First of all I want to say that each of the four authors that have collaborated are all talented and amazing in their own rights, but to team up made me super excited! These two books were fantastic, quick reads that will be perfect for summer vacation reading, wherever your travels take you, be it the beach or a road trip.

Seaside Harmony is a wonderful story of restoration, both relationship wise and a classic Inn. It has delightful characters and with each page read, I felt like I was right in Nantucket smelling the ocean air and feeling my toes in the sand. I loved how each character had different personalities that while at times butted heads, came together in a complementary manner as well. 

Sunflower Summer included the same main characters but also introduced the reader so other loveable characters. The main theme of book two was to realize what we are meant to do may be different then we originally planned but it what God wants us to do.  The books capture the special relationship that sisters have, beautiful East Coast history and a little mystery thrown in for good measure. Perfect reading for any Christian fiction fan. 

I highly recommend both books and give them a huge thumbs up!
