Christmas At Sugar Sand Inn By Leigh Duncan

Escape to Sugar Sand Beach with best friends Michelle, Reggie, Nina and Erin for a second chance at all life has to offer.

Welcome to Christmas at the Sugar Sand Inn! Michelle and her friends have replaced the welcome sign on the front gate with one that reads “Closed for the Holidays.” The four women deserve a little break after spending the summer working nonstop to convert the house Michelle inherited from her birth mother into an inn. The past three months they’ve definitely been thrilled—and maybe a little overwhelmed—by the influx of guests who have alternately charmed and confounded them. Now with a wedding in the works, it’s no wonder the four friends need some time to kick back, help themselves to a glass of the inn’s signature cocktail and enjoy the warm winter breezes that blow off the Gulf.

Of course, no holiday would be complete without a few problems. A tight housing market makes it difficult for Erin and her fiancĂ© to find a house to rent. Meanwhile Michelle, Reggie and Nina prepare a very special surprise for the newlyweds. Unexpected arrivals complicate matters, and soon every room of the “closed” inn is filled to overflowing. Despite the challenges, laughter rings throughout the halls, and good smells drift from the kitchen, where Chef Nina and her team whip up holiday treats and one very special wedding cake.

Join Nina, Michelle, Reggie and Erin as they enjoy the new lives they’ve built in Sugar Sand Beach, where fresh opportunities for life, love and happiness are as limitless as the blue Florida skies.

My Thoughts...

I love all of Duncan's books, but this series was the best. I love the friendships and the Inn at the beach it was just a dream series. I am a little bit sad to see this series come to an end but I am guessing that Duncan has something just as fantastic and this series coming next.

You should grab this sweet series.
