An engaging novel of sisters, from the acclaimed author who "writes movingly about love and family and the voyage we all take to discover what we really value."(The Island Packet)

Three sisters- responsible Riley, vivacious Maisy, and fun-loving Adalee-reunite to save the family's beach-community bookstore. But summer also marks the return of Mack Logan, whose choice of Maisy over Riley years ago destroyed the special closeness between the sisters...

Now Riley, a single mom, is hiding a shattering secret about their mother. Maisy, a California designer, still blames Riley for ruining her one true love. And Adalee resents the family's intrusion into her summer plans. All three will be forced to confront the conflicts that tore them apart and the bounds of love and loyalty that still draw them together...

User Review  - Jill - Goodreads

I really wanted to like this more. I understand why this was recommended to me, I just wish it was better. In a sense, this is the perfect, superficial, fast beach read. But the story tries hard to have depth, and it is just a little too perfect/predictable/ending all tied up with a neat bow. Read full review
