Misty Harbor Inn officially opens, and Gracie Gold, the middle Marris sister, wrestles with an over-whelming decision. As the sisters learn the day-to-day workings of running than 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 a hundred years ago. And as Gracie and Caroline welcome guests to the inn, they are delighted to see how God uses it--and then--to deepen relationships and transform lives.


Sunflower Summer continues where Seaside Harmony left off, with three sisters, Gracie, Caroline and Sam, preparing the Misty Harbor in for its grand re-opening. They’ve overcome many obstacles to get here, but with the renewed interest they are seeing in their inn, including a newly married couple who wants to be their very first guests, they are hopeful that this will prove to be a successful endeavor! Gracie continues to struggle with the decision as to whether she should sell her home and move to Nantucket or continue to split her time between the two. Sam and her daughter Jamie are intently involved in trying to solve the mysteries surrounding the house, and Caroline is dealing with the loss of her friend, George, after she refused his proposal of marriage.

I was so excited to read more about these sisters! It’s such a fun story, and it makes me wish there really was a Misty Harbor Inn I could go visit! From the way the story ended, I’m thinking there might be another one in the series. I’m sure hoping so, as I’d love to see what happens next!
