    This was sweet story that focuses on family. I like that the sisters are friends. I also like the setting of Nantucket. I think it's a beautiful island. The inn/bed and breakfast sounds delightful, and the inn's transformation was interesting. The mystery was intriguing but left unresolved, which was disappointing.

    Was able to visualize the beautiful island of Nantucket. The visualizations were nostalgic. Wasnt the best read honestly and I had trouble making myself finish it. I lost interest half way through and wished for a more powerful storyline. Was able to visualize the beautiful island of Nantucket. The visualizations were nostalgic.

    I've always imagined what it might be like to open a Bed and Breakfast in some wonderful location and that's just what the premise is behind Seaside Harmony by author Evangeline Kelley. In this charming and poignant novel, three sisters, Caroline Marris, Gracie Gold and Sam Carter revisit Nantucket to share once more in the fond memories from their childhood and the passing of their mother. Her mother had always dreamed of one day owning the now ...

    Seaside Harmony is the delightful tale of three middle aged sisters: Caroline Marris, Gracie Gold and Sam Carter, who reunite in Nantucket after their mother's funeral to revisit fond childhood memories of summers spent on the island. While on the island, they are dismayed to find that their mother's favorite place, the Misty Harbor Inn is now a rundown ramshackle that is on the market for sale. It had once been their mother's dream to own the hi...

    I will leave this at three stars because I couldn't finish the book. I really didn't like any of the three sisters, the writing was okay at best, and I felt more like I was watching Antiques Roadshow than anything else. Not worth my time to finish.

    Three sisters vacation together in Nantucket after their mother's death, to reconnect with each other. When one suggests they use their inheritance to buy a rundown Inn from their childhood and start the Bed and Breakfast their mother always wanted, they may end up even farther apart than before they set out.I loved this book because I've sometimes wondered myself, "Why not start a B and B? How much fun would that be?" All three characters, Carol...

    Evangeline Kelley is the pseudonym for the "writing team" of Patti Berg (who had been MIA for quite a while), Pam Andrews and Barbara Hanson (apparently they write as a team inside this team), and Camy Tang. I have no idea whether the authors tackle a book each or write each one together, but I can tell you that Seaside Harmony is the first of three books in the Postcards From Misty Harbor Inn series. Oh, and this is a Christian romance, so natur...

It is the first in the Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn series.Three sisters return to their childhood vacation spot and see that The Misty Harbor Inn that they used to visit is in a state of despair and has been long forgotten.

    I won a copy of this book via a FirstReads giveaway.Unfortunately, I only read a chapter and a half and can't bring myself to read any further. When I'd entered to win a copy of this book, the premise sounded cute - three sisters who get together in memory of their mother and end up opening a bed and breakfast. The book was labeled as a mystery/romance novel. What I did not expect was a Christian book published by Guideposts. Also, the sisters ar...

    Can I book a room at Misty Harbor Inn? The scenery in this book is as good as the story in my opinion. When three sisters come to Nantucket to vacation and to remember their mother, who loved the island, they follow a whim and decide to remodel a inn into a bed and breakfast despite their unresolved issues from the past. I love that four authors came together to write one cohesive book that flows from chapter to chapter and character to character...

    http://www.theknitwitbyshair.com/2013...The Postcards from Misty Harbor Inn Series follows the 3 Marris Sisters. It made me giggle a bit as I am the middle of 3 sisters. Some of the characteristics relating to the birth order of each sister sounded very familiar! LOL I am the sensible (ok that could be debated) organized middle sister. My older sister has always been very adventurous, and I am always reining her in, and she is making me loosen up...

    This is the second book in the series. Before I finished this book, I had ordered the 3rd. I enjoy the sisters, the setting on Nantucket, the people the sisters meet and interact with who stay at their Inn. These three sisters have gotten together midlife, after being scattered for the past twenty some years. They almost impulsively bought an Inn on Nantucket while there for a two week vacation. All coming from different life backgrounds. The nov...

    This series reminds me a lot of sillouette books in the type of writing it is. There is a romance of course with a great storyline that is not just limited to the take over of the inn. Our heroines in this series though are in the prime of their lives. They are not young with hourglass figures, perfect jobs, drop dead handsome men ~ no, they are actually my parents lives.If you are one who enjoys series books - one where you get to know the chara...

    I only read this book because my 94yo MIL recommended it - I should have known better. Had I gone in knowing it was going to be "first book in a series" perhaps my disappointment would have been lessened. It feels like about halfway through the book the author decides "I don't know how to wrap up these story lines so maybe I just won't, that way I can write a sequel or two and by then I'll figure it out." It wasn't until I came here to goodreads ...

    I enjoyed this story of 3 sisters coming together after years of separation as they pursued their own lives. As they come together for a summer vacation that echoes their childhood trips with their parents, they discover the inn that their mother loved so much has been abandoned and fallen into disrepair. As fate would have it, it is for sale, and while the sisters initially have widely divergent opinions about it, they finally come together and ...

    I won the book in a giveaway on this site. I fell in love with the characters, setting....all of it! I was glad Ms. Kelley made it very clear that each sister had their own talents, lives and habits. It made it so much more believable. Therewere so many things that kept me fascinated with the story. The interaction between the sisters. The people of the town. The intricacies of fixing up this rambling old inn that was in "bad" shape into a worki...
