Review Welcome to Moonlight Harbor (A Moonlight Harbor Novel) by Sheila Roberts

USA TODAY bestselling author Sheila Roberts returns with a brand-new series set on the charming Washington coast

Once happily married, Jenna Jones is about to turn forty, and this year for her birthday—lucky her—she’s getting a divorce. She’s barely able to support herself and her teenage daughter, but now her deadbeat artist ex is hitting her up for spousal support…and then spending it on his “other” woman.

Still, as her mother always says, every storm brings a rainbow. And when she gets a very unexpected gift from her great-aunt Edie, things seem to be taking a turn for the better. Aging Aunt Edie is finding it difficult to keep up her business running The Driftwood Inn, so she invites Jenna to come live with her and run the place. It looks like Jenna’s financial problems are solved!

Or not. The town is a little more run-down than Jenna remembers, but that’s nothing compared to the ramshackle state of The Driftwood Inn. Aunt Edie is confident they can return it to its former glory, though Jenna feels like she’s jumped from the proverbial frying pan into the beach fire.

But who knows? With the help of her new friends and a couple of handsome citizens, perhaps that rainbow is on the horizon after all. Because, no matter what, life is always good at the beach.

Featuring all the warmth, romance and trademark humor of Sheila Roberts’s writing, this new series will delight longtime fans and welcome a generation of new readers.

An awesome start to a new series by Sheila Roberts. This time our town will be on the beach, love the beach. Jenna is turning forty and getting a divorce from her deadbeat artist husband, and will now be a single mom of a teenage daughter. Her aunt has offered her a job at the Driftwood Inn that she owns, Jenna has wonderful memories from her childhood at Moonlight Harbor. Jenna decides to relocate there with her daughter, not knowing the Inn needs a little bit more work than she anticipated. Jenna will not give up!

Loved the characters of this story, along with single bachelors all vying for Jenna, who really is not ready to step into the dating scene quite yet. Her daughter is the typical teenager, not happy with leaving her bestie behind. Once again Sheila has built a quaint little town that we will all want to visit. I highly recommend this book.

Welcome to Moonlight Harbor is a wonderful start to a new series by Sheila Roberts. There are so many words to describe this book. When one door closes another one opens. . . Forgiveness. . . Trust. . . Love. . . Family and friends. I loved every minute of this book and was sad for it to end. Well deserving of all five stars.
You did it again sheila. Another good start to a new series, and its at the BEACH, whats not to love.
