After years of living in Charleston, Grace Porter and her younger sister, Charlotte Wylde, both agreed it was time to put the big city life behind them and get back to their roots. What better way to embark on a fresh start in Magnolia Harbor, South Carolina, than by purchasing one of the historic antebellum mansions back home and opening it up as the enchanting new Magnolia Harbor Inn?
Reconnecting with old friends around town and being closer to their beloved aunt, Winnie Bennett, is definitely the icing on the cake. But as sweet as living a simpler life is for the sisters, they each crave a little something more.
Despite Charlotte's big heart and pretty face, long-lasting love had eluded her in the city. Could Mr. Right be living in Magnolia Harbor right under her nose? Grace can't blame Charlotte for wanting to find love. With her own marriage cut tragically short more than 20 years ago, Grace also wonders if she will find a kind, gentle man who makes her smile and fills her heart with love again.
But in true Southern fashion, the ladies know their first priority is tending to the Magnolia Harbor Inn guests, especially those who seem to have lost their way.
Join now to receive your copy of Where Hope Blooms today and step back in time to a kinder, simpler way of life. You'll be comforted by the warm embrace of the people of Somerset Harbor while enjoying a good old-fashioned mystery filled with good-hearted people

The Characters

A Southern woman through and through, hospitality runs deep in Grace's veins. When the grand antebellum mansion in her hometown of Magnolia Harbor, South Carolina, was up for auction seven and a half years ago, Grace (now age 47) knew purchasing the estate with her sister, Charlotte, and remodeling it to become the Magnolia Harbor Inn was her new calling.

While she'd enjoyed many years of success working in the corporate world, the long hours and constant hustle of life in Charleston had taken its toll. Plus, it had been no small feat raising her son, Jake, on her own after a tragic accident took the life of her beloved husband when Grace was just 26 years old.

Now that Jake was grown and making a life of his own, Grace was happy to trade in the traffic jams for relaxing strolls along the sparkling shoreline of Lake Haven. Maybe she'd even wander down the lane to visit her handsome new neighbor, Spencer Lewis, who recently bought Blossom Hill Farm. A friendly gesture that Grace knew her aunt Winnie would surely approve of, but not before checking to make sure each guest at the inn has everything they need.

With an incredible knack for knowing what others need, often before they do, Winnie's intuitive nature, gentle spirit and worlds of wisdom are appreciated not only by her nieces, Grace and Charlotte, but by the guests who come to stay at the Magnolia Harbor Inn. At 69 years old, Winnie lives a fun, fulfilling and active life. She enjoys taking daily walks over to the inn, which is less than a mile away from the home she shares with her husband, Gus, and meeting up with The Busy Bees Quilting group to handcraft beautiful blankets, table runners, wall hangings and more.

Thirteen years younger than Grace, Charlotte is a smart, savvy and sensational chef who loves mixing up homemade dishes for the guests at the Magnolia Harbor Inn. In fact, purchasing the inn with her sister was just the step Charlotte needed to get out of Charleston's cutthroat restaurant business and into running the inn's kitchen as she sees fit. When she's not piping ganache onto her freshly baked pastries, Charlotte is penning recipes for her next cookbook--she already has three that made the best-seller list!
