Sometimes love hurts--and sometimes it can heal in the most unexpected way.

Camden Grayson loves her challenging career, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. "Moving on" is Cam's mantra. But there's a difference, her two sisters insist, between one who moves on . . . and one who keeps moving. 

Cam's full-throttle life skids to a stop when her father buys a remote island off the coast of Maine. Paul Grayson has a dream to breathe new life into the island--a dream that includes reuniting his estranged daughters. Certain Dad has lost his mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam's surprise, the slow pace of island life appeals to her, along with the locals--and one in particular. Seth Walker, the scruffy island schoolteacher harbors more than a few surprises.

I must admit that the first thing that attracted me to this particular book was that it was about three sisters. Being one of three sisters myself, that was something that that really appealed to me personally- knowing that type of relationship. And while the sisters in this story are quite different than my own sisters and me, I did still see some similarities here and there that really made me appreciate the story all that much more.

And oh what a great story it was! Lives are uprooted when their father decides out of the blue to sell their childhood home and buy a rundown island in need of a little TLC. While all the sisters are grown, it seems their circumstances bring them all along for the ride. It was interesting to watch as each sister rediscovers herself in the peace and quiet of the island. And in rediscovering themselves, they also rediscovered their family... not to mention discovering the unique cast of characters found on the island!

To be honest, that was my favorite love story in the book... the love of the family. Still, it wasn't the only one! I loved watching the relationship grow between uptight and planned Cam and the much more free spirit schoolteacher Seth. It was a sweet romance that I truly wanted to see more of.

I won't give anything away, but trust me...you'll want to read this one to the end. The twist in the end had me completely shocked, and made the story that much more dynamic.

Overall this was a great story- about family, about romance, about redemption and about God putting us right where we need to be. I would HIGHLY recommend it. This is book one in the new Three Sisters series, and I for one cannot wait to read more!
