A second sexy small-town tale from USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis

Three sisters, raised apart, are surprised to discover that they have inherited a ramshackle bed and breakfast from their mother. As they meet in the small Pacific Northwest beach town, they find a picturesque place that still has a make-out point on the far side of the rocks and though you can leave your car unlocked and a pile of money on your backseat, you can't trust a single resident with a secret.

The oldest sister, Tara, promised herself she'd never come back to this town and yet she finds herself charmed and drawn in all over again. Choosing between two perfect men while forced to face a mistake that turns out to not be a mistake at all, she's shocked to discover that love does conquer all.
