Hannah Matthews is undeniably tough - a single mom, a top-tier PR exec, a breast-cancer survivor. She prides herself on being go-to-Hannah, who can handle any crisis. But with her grandmother balking at going into a retirement home, her daughter unexpectedly pregnant, and an old flame suddenly underfoot, Hannah is facing a few crises of her own. And being back home on Seaview Key is definitely adding to the stress.
Luke Stevens understands crisis. While serving in Iraq, his wife dumped him for his best friend - with whom Luke shares his medical practice. Seaview Key seems like the perfect place to hide out for a while. The last thing he expects is to fall in love...with his old hometown and with Hannah.
Sometimes, though, the unexpected is just what it takes to heal the heart.

Seaview Inn is a charming story that on its face has been told many times in many books: Divorced mother of college daughter returns to her home town that she fled many years ago. College daughter, doing well at Stanford, suddenly takes a leave of absence from college for very emotional reasons. Grandmother wants to keep the inn that has been in her family for generations; daughter believes she should go in assisted living. Trouble Iraq War veteran comes to his birthplace to sort out his soul.
OK, if that were the plot and there was nothing more, I might have given this book a whirl--or maybe not, as I have read so many similar books. BUT... we have more to this story.
First, we have a poignant and realistic look at the anguish an adult child feels when her parent or grandparent can no longer continue in the life she loves. What should be done? Is assisted living the answer? Or is it unspeakably cruel? Next, we have a very realistic look at a recent breast cancer survivor who, having watched her own mother die of the disease, cannot believe in her own future. The terror is very real and beautifully described. And then we have the bitterness of a wounded war veteran who comes home to find that his wife has dropped him for his best friend.
It all sounds so very melodramatic, but it isn't--not when Sherryl Woods is writing the book! Her compassion, her honesty and her very real wisdom shine through on every page. I've already ordered the next in the series, and I can't wait to read it.
A Summer MUST-READ! I can wait to see where Luke and Hannah take this love affair.
Kudos, Sherryl, you've rediscovered your story telling abilities!!
I checked her book list and I was correct. It was a reissue. I think they should have to state that on the cover or at least on the copyright page. Turns out there isn't even a copyright page for e-books.

This book did not disappoint in any way. ..
Seaview Key, an island off Florida coast served by ferry, Hannah grew up there with her Mum and Grandmother, left as soon as she could and now with a daughter, works at a successful PR job in New York. Having lost her Mum a few months previously she returns to Seaview Key to try and persuade her Grandmother to move into an assisted living facility on the mainland, and sell the family run B&B. Her Grandmother has other ideas, which soon become apparent!
Kelsey, Hannah's daughter has a bombshell of her own, she goes to Seaview Key for some advice, taking a leave of absence from college, can Hannah handle any more!
Then there's Luke, an old school friend of Hannahs who also grew up in the island. After divorcing his wife, who left him whilst he was on a tour of duty in Iraq, and almost got himself killed in the process, he goes home to Seaview Key to continue his recovery...
Secrets come to light, hearts are broken and are healed, the future is decided upon... a brilliant book and well worth a read. I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. ..
