In Back Home Again, sleepy little Acorn Hill is in for a big surprise when the three sisters reunite after the death of their father, a beloved minister. Each has inherited a share of his worn-down Victorian house, and they decide to turn their family home into a bed-and-breakfast. But the women are as different as sisters can be, and they encounter many obstacles along the way. By learning to work together, accepting a little help from their friends, and trusting in God, the three sisters are finally able to see Grace Chapel Inn open its doors.
Written in a lively and engaging style, this book will draw readers in and have them waiting for the next title in the series.

Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Three sisters come together following the death of their pastor father, at first not agreeing on much, but ultimately accepting their differences and turning their childhood home into a bed and breakfast together . . . a light, easy tale of the little town of Acorn Hill, some busy body parishioners and a few bumps in the road to opening the inn . . . not overly religious or preachy . . . just a fun, uncomplicated story . . .
Not from Melody Carlson. The book had a flimsy plotline. The narrator was fine.
This is my first.
Nothing in particular
I don't find the story line compelling--I find it slow-moving, predictable, and I'm learning absolutely nothing. It seems there would be room to learn about renovating an old house, relationships, cooking--but I'm quitting. There is nothing.
There is nothing compelling about any of the characters, the plot, the setting.
There seemed to be no heart in the reading.
The idea was a good one--the reason I have the book.
I'd love to return this book.....
