How many mishaps will the bride and groom be able to handle? 

Merlyn Marshall arrives at the bed-and-breakfast unemployed, broke, and single. She was recently betrayed by her fiancé, Reynolds Coltrain. Now she's a bridesmaid in her high school classmate's wedding, and Reynolds's new fiancé is the maid of honor. Merlyn determines to find the strength to get through the wedding. Will Merlyn's stay at the elegant mansion help her discover her own new beginning?

But Ashley is lonely and miserable, and being in the wedding dredges up painful memories. She must choose between accepting the hurtful situation and fighting for her heart's desire.

As the big day approaches, surprising secrets come to light and binding vows are made. Will the Magnolia Harbor Inn work its charm to help the women embrace their second chance at love?

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!
