Inside the Book

Author: Sheila Roberts
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA
Pages: 400
Genre: Women’s Fiction
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, Jenna is determined follow her mother’s philosophy – 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 remembered, 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.

My Thoughts:
I truly enjoyed this book.  It is about starting over and looking on the bright side.  Jenna got a divorce and turned forty.  Not to mention that she gets a wonderful offer from her aunt for her and her fourteen year old daughter to move to the beach town she loved growing up and have a fresh start.  Her daughter though, not happy at all.  The girl was a typical teenager and the author did a great job of showing that.
I liked that Jenna wasn't afraid to work.  She may not know what she is doing but she jumps right in.  The townsfolk were great.  They helped so much and I loved how they all really liked her Aunt Edie.  I wasn't certain I was going to like Pete and he is a definite character, but not a bad guy.  There is a ton of work going on and a mix of emotions but it was just a good read!
A 4/5 for me.  It was good.
