    Sweet story This was the first book in the Misty Harbor series I read originally and I ve picked up and read all but one of the others They are all nice stories with usually 2 romances per book This one had newcomers Norah and her mother, Joanna, finding a new home and love.Misty Harbor is a great town and I really enjoyed getting to know the Porter family this time around.

    Another good one How nice to find another author who builds a pleasant world full of real characters some good, some bad, some indifferent So far I ve really enjoyed her work There seems to be a bit of an obsession with Disney but that s really not a problem.

    I feel like a broken record when I talk about any of these books or the whole series The stories remind me a lot of Virgin River, by Robyn Carr, but sweeter and I look forward to all my favorite places in the book You are going to love the Porter Family
