Escape to the Gulf Coast of Florida with Georgia Carpenter as she gets a second chance at life, love, and happiness.

There’s a wedding on the horizon and Georgia Carpenter couldn’t be happier. But that doesn’t mean she’s lost sight of everything that still needs to be done to get the Sea Glass Inn ready for opening. Not only is she preparing for that, but the magazine photoshoot is right around the corner, too.


As is the town council election. Most people think Travis Taylor, the Inn’s handsome handyman, is a shoo-in, but with Lavinia Major as his opponent, anything could happen. And probably will.


Especially since things haven’t been going Lavinia’s way lately. Not with getting to see her great-grandson, not with getting to see her granddaughter, and not with keeping control of Blackbird Beach.

Georgia refuses to let one woman stand in her way of happiness, however. Reservations are coming in and the Inn’s future looks bright and promising. She’s even agreed to have the Inn’s famous Christmas party once again.

Everything is going as smoothly as she could hope for. Which only means Lavinia will find a way to make things bumpy again. Or will this wedding change all of that?
