Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery returns with a poignant story about finding love and freeing oneself from the past.

Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she’s still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner’s suite occupied by the last person she wants to see.

Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn’s cheerful veneer.

Single mother Carly has weathered rumors, lies, and secrets for a lifetime and is finally starting to move forward with love and life. But if the Blackberry Island Inn goes under, Carly and her daughter will go with it.

To save their livelihoods, Carly and Michelle will undertake a turbulent truce. It’ll take more than a successful season to move beyond their devastating past, but with a little luck and a beautiful summer, they may just rediscover the friendship of a lifetime.

    " Wonderful book, and apparently the start of a new series. The main characters were wonderful, complex, flawed women and I felt drawn to both of them. I love Susan Mallery's writing, and this is a solid opening to a new cast of wonderful characters. When does the next one come out?? "

    " Mallery moved the book a step above the typical romance by concentrating on the two female characters. The sex is not quite a graphic as many such books, but you probably won't had it to your kids to read. An easy read, and I enjoyed it. Good beach book (but after all, that is where I live). "

    " This was a feel-good read, the story followed the basic formula, meaning you could pretty much figure out how they story would end but it was still enjoyable. She allows some mystery in her characters actions so you have to keep reading to figure out the whole background story. "
