    • Abstract:
      Summary: "From Mariah Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Chesapeake Diaries series, comes the next book in her popular Hudson Sisters series, which follows a trio of reluctant sisters who set out to fulfill their father's dying wish and discover themselves in the process in this "sweet reminder of the importance of family" (First for Women). California girl Allie Hudson Monroe can't wait for the day when the renovations on the Sugarhouse Theater are complete so she can finally collect the inheritance from her father and leave Pennsylvania. After all, her life and her fourteen-year-old daughter are in Los Angeles. But Allie's divorce left her tottering on the edge of bankruptcy, so to keep up on payments for her house and her daughter's private school tuition, Allie packed up and flew out east. But fate has a curve-ball or two to toss in Allie's direction--she just doesn't know it yet. She hadn't anticipated how her life would change after reuniting with her estranged sister, Des, or meeting her previously unknown half-sister, Cara. And she'd certainly never expected to find small-town living charming. But the biggest surprise was that her long-forgotten artistry would save the day when the theater's renovation fund dried up. When her aunt buys The Green Brier Café -- known locally as the Goodbye Café -- can Allie and Police Chief Ben Haldeman put aside their differences and work together? With opening day upon the sisters, Allie's free to go. But for the first time in her life, she feels like the woman she was always meant to be. Will she return to the West Coast and resume her previous life, or will the love of "this amazing, endearing family of women" (Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author) be enough to draw her back to the place where the Hudson roots grow so deep?"-- Provided by publisher.

PW Reviews 2019 February #4

Stewart (The Sugarhouse Blues) makes a charming return to tiny Hidden Falls, Pa., in this breezy contemporary, which is loaded with appealing down-home characters and tantalizing hints of mystery that will hook readers immediately. Sisters Allie, Des, and Cara—who are scattered around the U.S.—received a major surprise after their father, Franklin "Fritz" Hudson, died. His will stated they would get their inheritances only after living together in the Hudson family home and restoring the town's theater. Des and Cara have lost their hearts to local men, and now it's Allie's turn: soon after she relocates with her daughter, Nikki, she falls for the chief of police, Ben Haldeman, who's recovering from the deaths of his wife and son. When the sisters' aunt Barney impulsively buys the titular café, the social hub of the town, everyone's pressed into service, from Allie waiting tables to Nikki baking brownies. Nikki's frenemy, Allie's ex, and Ben's grief are bumps in the road to a heartwarming finale. Stewart expertly combines the inevitable angst of a trio of sisters, a family secret, and a search for an heirloom necklace; it's an irresistible mix that will delight readers. Masterful characterizations and well-timed plot are sure to pull in fans of romantic small-town stories. Agent: Nick Mullendore, Vertical Ink. (Apr.)
