Fleeing her picture-perfect life among the privileged set and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins moves to the only place that still holds happy memories: her grandmother's farmhouse, now a converted B&B on the enchanting Madrona Island.

Publisher's Summary

The Guestbook: weaves together the heart of Nicholas Sparks' books, the romance of Nora Robert's work, and the charm of Debbie Macomber.

Fleeing her picture-perfect life among the privileged set and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins moves to the only place that still holds happy memories: her grandmother's farmhouse, now a converted B&B on the enchanting Madrona Island. After learning her grandmother has passed away, Lily is left with only an old guestbook as her guide - a curious book full of letters, recipes, and glimpses into her family history. She is determined to embrace her newfound independence and recreate herself, one page at a time.

With the help of quirky island residents, she finds the strength to follow her passion and culinary dreams. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course. The last thing she wants to do right now is fall in love. Ultimately, Lily must decide if it's worth giving up her soul for security or risk everything to follow her heart.

    "A good read for old ladies.."

    Simple straightforward melancholy story rated G. Too long for such few events. A good listen to fall asleep to. Pretty corny and unbelievable. Wonder what happened. To father and ex husband?.

    "A Delightful and Heartwarming Story of Renewal"

    The Guestbook is a warm and endearing story about a woman Lily leaving her failed marriage and finding hope and renewal at her grandmother's old bed and breakfast on Medrona Island in upstate Washington where the apples and the air are crisp and the people are friendly and accepting and the love is contagious. She meets so many new and wonderful friends such as Jude, outgoing and helpful, who owns the the Island Time Cafe. Kyla, quiet yet friendly and battling her own issues, who owns the Tea and Comfort shop. She meets and befriends her neighbor John who is an elderly man whose grandson Ian becomes Lily's love interest over time.
    Lily finds her grandmother Maggie's old guestbook and initially finds a few cookie recipes inside it. She reads the entries written in the guestbook from the people who had stayed at the bed and breakfast over the years and always feels a sense of renewal afterwards. The guestbook keeps her moving forward with plans of re-opening the inn. The one thing she can't find though is her grandma Maggie's heavenly brownie recipe.
    I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and pleasant and I would love to see a follow up book to The Guestbook. I would recommend this book for a great summer listen or read.
    I also thought that Teri Schnaubelt did an absolutely terrific job with the characters in this book. All the characters were distinctly different and she had great flow in her performance. I look forward to more from her and the author Andrea Hurst.
    I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
