Jenna Jones is a divorced mother with a teenage daughter. She lives with her aunt in a beach town in Washington where she has recently refurbished her aunt’s Driftwood Inn. Jenna has taken over as manager of the Inn and is trying to turn around tough times since the end of the summer tourist season. The small town of Moonlight Harbor has a Chamber of Commerce committee that Jenna serves on too. She suggests to the committee that they should sponsor a winter festival to help get tourists to visit in the off-season. Things are going well in the preparations, but a tragedy hits that has everyone in a tizzy, wondering how they will survive. Jenna is fighting her own personal battles with her ex, her daughter and her hormones ! There are also two handsome men in her life that she is trying to decide between. There are a number of subplots about the people who come to the Driftwood Inn to stay for the festival. Lots of storylines but I would have loved to read more about Jenna and Seth. The story ended like I was missing another chapter. Perhaps another book?
Winter at the Beach by Sheila Roberts is available from MIRA, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
