For her 40th birthday, Jenna Jones gets to celebrate—her divorce. She not only has primary custody of her 14-year-old daughter, but she also must pay spousal support to her starving artist ex-husband and his new "muse." When Jenna receives a plea from her elderly great-aunt to help her run the Driftwood Inn, it seems her prayers have been answered. Jenna is ecstatic to turn over a new leaf at the Washington beach where she spent some of the best summer days of her life, even if she has to drag her daughter kicking and screaming. Reality sets in when the town of Jenna's childhood memories and the inn itself aren't as rosy as she recalls.
VERDICT Roberts (Christmas in Icicle Falls) does an excellent job of creating sympathetic and relatable characters with real-life problems in a small-town setting. The beginning entry in this hopeful series will win over readers looking for a comforting escape.
