I have come to love reading Lisa Wingate‘s novels. I am inspired by the wisdom of her characters, and I always come away feeling that I am better for having known them. They make me feel good, and brighten my day. This one compares to the prayer box, And after listening to it as an audiobook I Purchased a paperback copy for my mother as a gift.

Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina's Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs. But things at the Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney's estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney's only hope of quick cash.

This is the third book in the series, and it does a beautiful job of tying it all together. I would recommend reading them in order, so you can enjoy the full backstory, although each of the books stands well on its own. What a treasure!!!
