The Inn at Walker Beach {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

A dream years in the making becomes reality with the inaugural meeting of The Barefoot Sisterhood...

Jenna Wakefield has been through a lot in her twenty-seven years—losing her mother, becoming a teen mom, and battling depression, just to name a few. And working a dead-end job, barely paying her bills, and fighting unrequited feelings for her boss aren’t exactly part of the life she always imagined.

With her six children grown and her husband constantly traveling for work, Elise Griffin finds herself utterly without purpose for the first time ever at age sixty-three. But “retirement” isn’t as wonderful as it might sound—it gives her far too much time to think about the affair her husband had a year ago ... the one she’s never told anyone about.

When both women are invited into the mysterious Barefoot Sisterhood and asked to help restore an old beachside inn for a good cause, they find themselves supported and encouraged in new and exciting ways. This inspiration leads to dream seeking ... and new romance as well.

Discover what happens when women give each other the space to finally dream—and in doing so, make the world a better place.

What a way to start a new series! I absolutely could not get enough of this beautiful story! Lindsay Harrel has such a way of creating beautiful characters that draw you into their lives, and The Inn at Walker Beach was an absolute prime example of that! 

The first book in The Barefoot Sisterhood series focusses on single mom Jenna who has battled with depression for many years, as well as sixty-seven year old Elise who is searching for her new purpose now that her children are grown and she's in a new stage of life. These two women are at very different stage in their lives, but I must admit that there were parts of each of them I could relate to, and I think that this is something that women are definitely going to see throughout this series as well--- so many different women were introduced that they are likely to see themselves in bits and pieces throughout each of them. And while we may have only gotten glimpses at some of these other women so far, it was certainly enough to draw me in and have me wanting to know more about their stories too. Of course, I personally enjoyed the romance in the story too, but I definitely feel like even those who aren't particularly looking for a romance novel will be able to appreciate this story too. I cannot wait to see what happens next in this series!
