Goodreads:  The Buchanan sisters share everything—including their inherited Juniper Inn. But when their mother won’t let go of a decades-long feud with their Aunt Sassy to attend the inn’s grand re-opening, the sisters decide a family reunion is long overdue.

Youngest sister Rose is determined to put together an extravagant celebration. Only she needs to convince a certain surly hardware store owner to help finish the inn’s renovations.

After a heartbreaking end to her marriage, Dahlia and her kids are just starting to rebuild their lives. Dahlia’s even considering opening herself up to love again, but will that upset the stability she’s worked so hard to give her children?

Sassy McGrath has never stopped missing her sister, Lillian, and though they’ve both been too stubborn to reconcile, some shocking news might finally change everything. As family bonds are tested, will these two very different generations of women find the strength to believe in themselves and each other?

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series and this is a romance series where I would completely suggest starting at book one as you will need to know what happens in book one to continue to book two.  

The Buchanan sisters are enjoying their time with their aunt and are hoping to repair the relationship between their aunt and their mom that has been decades in the making.  While they are fixing up their aunt's inn to reopen, they both may also find love in unlikely locations.  

I loved book one in this series and was excited to return to these sisters and while I loved the moments where the sisters were interacting and doing what they needed to do for their aunt and their mother, the love story portion for each women wasn't my cup of tea.  Both women in this book were wishy washy and spent the whole book debating about if they wanted to be in love and while I could have enjoyed that for one character, to have both felt a little too much in one book.  

I have been a fan of Sara Richardson and love how she portrays women as strong and having their own lives while love walks in, for me this one wasn't one of my favorites.  I wonder if there will be another in this series and will be intrigued to see if the sisters have more to share.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
