The Summer Sisters – Published 2021
“The Buchanan sisters share everything—including their inherited Juniper Inn. But when their mother won’t let go of a decades-long feud with their Aunt Sassy to attend the inn’s grand re-opening, the sisters decide a family reunion is long overdue.
Youngest sister Rose is determined to put together an extravagant celebration. Only she needs to convince a certain surly hardware store owner to help finish the inn’s renovations.
After a heartbreaking end to her marriage, Dahlia and her kids are just starting to rebuild their lives. Dahlia’s even considering opening herself up to love again, but will that upset the stability she’s worked so hard to give her children?
Sassy McGrath has never stopped missing her sister, Lillian, and though they’ve both been too stubborn to reconcile, some shocking news might finally change everything. As family bonds are tested, will these two very different generations of women find the strength to believe in themselves and each other?” – Goodreads
Thank you to Forever Publishing for the gifted copy of this book! I read Home for the Holidays last year and loved this family so much! I love the family, the small town vibe, all of the side characters, and the crushes!
This book is so charming, and while it could be read as a standalone, I really think you’ll want to read the first book in the series first, just to get to know Juniper Springs and all of its quirks. I firmly believe this series would make a great Hallmark movie. It is not cheesy like a Hallmark movie, but it’s heartwarming, cozy, and I think some of the family drama could be played out so well on screen.
I very much enjoyed this book and hope this isn’t the end of the Juniper Springs series!
