About the Book:

Sometimes love hurts—and sometimes it can heal in the most unexpected way.

Camden Grayson loves her challenging career, but the rest of her life could use some improvement. “Moving on” is Cam’s mantra. But there’s a difference, her two sisters insist, between one who moves on . . . and one who keeps moving.

Cam’s full-throttle life skids to a stop when her father buys a remote island off the coast of Maine. Paul Grayson has a dream to breathe new life into the island—a dream that includes reuniting his estranged daughters. Certain Dad has lost his mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam’s surprise, the slow pace of island life appeals to her, along with the locals—and one in particular. Seth Walker, the scruffy island schoolteacher harbors more than a few surprises.

My Rating & Thoughts:    

This is book number one of the Three Sisters Island series and in book one we are following the Grayson family. Their dad has bought a run-down camp on Three Sisters Island after retiring from his radio job. He moves to the island to fix up the camp and then all 3 daughters come to help him. The girls are between the ages of 19 and 28. When they arrive on the island we meet the residents that live there. I felt like I had been transported to Maine alongside the Grayson family. The story is told through multiple points of view from various family members, but really focuses on Cam who is the oldest sister. But due to multiple perspectives we really get to know the other sisters and the dad pretty well. Each character felt unique, the sisters each have stuff going on in their lives and issues to work through but they are forced to work together to help their father restore this property. They were reluctant to come to the island at first but discover more than they could have imagined. One of my favourite parts of this book was the fight between the sisters that turned into an honest and heartfelt discussion. This moment helped them understand one another and made their relationship stronger in the end. The romance for Cam was subtle but I enjoyed watching it build and found myself cheering for them to get together. I immediately picked up book 2 after finishing this one.
