What a wonderful read – My Grandmother’s Inn by Kristin Harper – #Mystery #FamilyHistory #Romance

My Grandmother’s Inn: A totally gorgeous and gripping page-turner by Kristin Harper

My Review:

Following the death of her beloved Gran
Molly comes up with a different plan.
She's going to look after her Grandmother's Inn
And the summer's guests therein.

Hydrangea House will open for this last year
With the new owners making it very clear
That once that time is over, it will be shut down -
The idea of which makes Molly frown.

A surprise phone call from someone who
Knew her great grandparents shares something new.
So start the search for a bottled message which may
Change expectations and lives in a different way.

A story about learning about the actions of others,
Reasons for behaviours, explanations, truth discovers.
Friendships and motivations, secrets and schemes
Hopes for the future and new dreams!

There's friendships from the past
Secrets and revelations made at last.
There's also mystery and potential romance
In this lovely read - hope you'll give it a chance!

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.


Periwinkle-blue flowers spill over the picket fence, framing the simple wooden sign that reads Hydrangea House. But Molly’s eyes fill with tears. Her grandmother Beverley used to stand right there in the doorway, ready to welcome guests. Now Beverley is gone, will the inn close forever?

Grieving and newly single Molly Anderson begs the wealthy Frost family, owners of Hydrangea House, to allow her to run the inn for one last summer before they shut it down. She vows to give the final guests a summer to remember by the sea. It’s what Beverly—who worked uncomplainingly for the Frosts her whole life—would have wanted.

But when an elderly woman checks in claiming to know a secret about Beverly’s true connection to the Frost family, everything Molly knows about her beloved grandmother is called into question. The woman says that a message in a bottle hidden somewhere at Hydrangea House, will not only reveal the truth, but could stop the Frosts’ plan in its tracks.

Desperate to do whatever she can to save Hydrangea House, Molly combs the inn from attic to basement, helped by visiting oceanographer Matt. She could never get involved with a guest, but Matt’s kindness as he listens to her worries, and the way his deep brown eyes keep locking with hers are hard to ignore…

But as they fill their summer with searching, rumors and bad reviews about Molly start to spread. By delving into the mystery of the past, has she shattered any chance of the inn’s future? Can Matt be trusted, or is he more closely linked to the Frost family than she thought? And when she finally unlocks the secret about her grandmother, will it bring Molly peace—or tear her apart?

An absolutely gorgeous read about learning to trust, the meaning of home, and the importance of family. Fans of Debbie Macomber, Carolyn Brown and Mary Alice Monroe will be captivated.

About Kristin Harper

Ever since she was a young girl, there were few things Kristin liked more than creative writing and spending time on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, with her family. Eventually (after a succession of jobs that bored her to tears), she found a way to combine those two passions by becoming a women’s fiction author whose stories occur in oceanside settings. While Kristin doesn’t live on the Cape year-round, she escapes to the beach whenever she can.
