Guideposts Books is celebrating the release of their new Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn series with a fun giveaway and a Facebook party on May 9th.
For this Blog tour we were sent the first two books in the Misty Harbor Inn series. These novels in the series are written by Evangeline Kelley which is a pen name for these 4 authors collaborating together. Patti Berg, Pam Andrews & Barbara Hanson, and Camy Tang. The First two books that are in the series are:
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.
Readers will delight in the inviting setting and be enthralled by the adventures of these sisters who reunite to bring their mother’s Misty Harbor dreams to life.” Book Description from Amazon.
Right from the very beginning I was involved in this story. Usually with most books it takes a little bit to ramp up your curiosity but with seaside harmony it was there from the beginning. The writing flowed so nicely and there weren’t any complaints about how it was written at all. I love that it has an air of mystery and the sisters are just a joy to read about. There isn’t anything that’s really super humorous or spectacular about it but it still is a great book to read. It was a pretty quick read and I would totally recommend it for anyone that was a simple non complicated fiction novel.
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.

It was great to read about the sisters again and not have to wait months! This one was more exciting with much more things happening in the novel. But its also much shorter than the first “seaside harmony” that part I wasn’t too fond of since I wanted more and more of these sisters and their inn. There are moments you want to just cheer for what happens next with the lovely sisters. Its just a great novel period.
