This is a collection of Novellas centred around Karis Walsh’s original Sea Glass Inn Novel.
The main Characters from the Sea Glass Inn Book of 2013 seem to again be the centre of the Novellas as is their Inn, in which at least one character resides during their story.
Okay a little Background:
The prologue brings us up to date on the romance of Mel and Pam.

To be honest i expected more from this collection as i enjoyed the Sea Glass Inn Novel greatly.
The main reason i was left a little disappointed was due to the heroines falling in love to easily. I understand that with short stories this is normally the case however i think Karis Walsh has 5 good ideas for full novels. One consisting of a sequel to Sea Glass Inn and four more in depth romances. Now that would have been a treat… One that i would have been excited to follow. I am giving this book 3 stars.
