In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.
Starting over won’t be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.

I love the way this book starts out with Maddie finally/almost gaining the upper hand over her boyfriend and losing her job at the same time. This presents another opportunity for Maddie to leave her life behind when she decides to go to Lucky Harbor and claim her inheritance from her mother. Jax meets Maddie when she almost kills him by running him off the road on his motorcycle. Talk about a cute meet with a handsome stranger! I loved Maddie’s humor at the curveballs she is thrown. Jax is sexy without being overbearing. The two together are just wonderful and watching the relationship develop is even better.
Jax has issues of his own and throw in some great situations between Maddie and her new relationships with her sisters, which have their own books in the Lucky Harbor series. This is the first book I have read in this series and had no trouble picking up on them. All of the character are believable and Jax, well, he is a hottie! This is definitely a wonderful read.
