 About Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn

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.

 Reader review  (Seaside Harmony). . . 

Caroline, Gracie and Sam decide to revisit their favorite childhood vacation spot after the death of their mother.  All middle-aged, the sisters discover that the Misty Harbor Inn is for sale.  Sam and Caroline wish to honor their mother’s lifelong desire to own the Inn, but Gracie needs to be convinced.  Since the death of her husband, she does not want to leave the home they shared.  Also, she is busy in the lives of her adult children and feels useful when caring for them.  The sisters think they know what they’re getting into, but do they really?

Beach lovers, beware!  Reading this book causes high spikes in your desire to be at the beach.  I could almost smell the salt air while reading, and the description of the lobster served at the clambake made me hungry.  For everyone who has ever entertained the fantasy of owning a cute little B&B, this is the perfect escape, and the mystery lovers will enjoy the mystery of the missing Hannah Montague.  Also, if you’re sick of reading about sweet young 20-somethings, this is the antidote.  The sisters are refreshingly mature.  In other words, the youngest is in her 50s.  When you consider how many readers of Christian fiction are mature women, you have to wonder why someone didn’t think of this before.

Great novel; clean mystery; soft Christian theme.
