After having read the fifth book in this series and really enjoying it, I decided to return to the series beginning.  I also enjoyed this book, but DuLong has grown much more interesting by the last book.  I always like to see where everything began and am glad to have gone there in this book, and will probably continue with the series.




This is basically a woman's friendship and communications book, with a touch of romance.  Sydney Webster has been thrown for a loop.  Her husband just died, forcing Sydney from her rich New England life and beautiful home because of enormous gambling debts that she knew nothing about.  Thankfully, her best friend took her into her B&B in Cedar Key, Florida, and helps her begin to get her life together.  Here she continues to seek information on her birth mother, she meets a handsome artist, and she tries to establish a retail store around knitting and weaving that becomes the basis for future books in this series.




There is a large emphasis on the female spirit that was a bit over done for me.  And unfortunately, things fell a little too easily in place, as I would have liked perhaps a bit less story line and a lot more tension in the solutions.  There are a number of serious issues talked about in this book but they sometimes seemed to be glossed over too easily.  I do think there is a future in this series, especially since I found FAREWELL TO CEDAR KEY to be very good, and most of my concerns seemed to be handled differently by this fifth book that I real first.  I listened to this on Audible and enjoyed the narration very much.
