    Had potential but Honestly, I don t know why there are so many good reviews on or Goodreads There were so many unfinished plots in this book For example, a father who has not seen the main character but leaves threatening messages in the mailbox but never makes an appearance There is no explanation on why he just disappears in quotes because he never actually appeared and why he no longer wants the house at what seemed to

    3.75 to 4 stars After finding out that her husband was cheating on her, Lily Parkins left her comfortable life in Los Angeles for Madrona Island The island was a significant part of Lily s childhood It is also where her grandmother lived as a proprietor of BB, which she left to Lily when she died I enjoyed this little gem of a story This wasn t really your typical romance book, although it certainly has a lot of that The Guestbook

    Great storyline, but the writing was terrible The author does an excellent job of describing scenery and what s going on, but the dialogue is badly written, very stilted I wouldn t mind finding out about the other character s stories in books 2 3 but I think I ll pass due to the writing in the first book.

    Judging by some of the other reviews, this seems to be a love it or hate it book I really enjoyed it I honestly don t understand what some of the negative reviews were for The writing style was wonderful Beautifully descriptive painting a scenery I could easily imagine myself in, feeling and smelling as the characters were, and tasting This was a torturous book to read while pregnant My mouth has been watering for the Orange scones with icing, the chocolate cherry muffins, and a

    My Love for the three mentioned authors in the synopsis only heightened my interest in this book But, once inside the pages, I was never pleased and engrossed with the story of Lily Parkins by author Andrea Hurst She won me over very quickly to say the least.Author Andrea Hurst is now on my list to continue to find and read as many as I can get my hands on, author read n review list Her way of telling the story of main character Lily Parkins and her grandmothers old farmhouse kept me
