A delightful novel about two headstrong sisters, a small-town's efforts to do right by their community, and the power of a lost dog to conjure up true love

Nora, the owner of the Miss Guthrie diner, is perfectly happy serving up apple cider donuts, coffee, and eggs-any-way-you-like-em to her regulars, and she takes great pleasure in knowing exactly what's "the usual." But her life is soon shaken when she discovers she and her younger, free-spirited sister Kit stand to inherit the home and land of the town's beloved cake lady, Peggy Johnson.

Kit, an aspiring--and broke--filmmaker needs to generate funding for her latest project, and is particularly keen when they find out Peggy was in the process of selling the land to a big-box developer before her death. The people of Guthrie are divided--some want the opportunities the development will bring, while others are staunchly against any change--and they aren't afraid to leave their opinions with their tips.

Time is running out, and the sisters need to make a decision soon. But Nora isn't quite ready to let go of the land, complete with a charming farmhouse, an ancient apple orchard and clues to a secret life that no one knew Peggy had.
Troubled by the conflicting needs of the town, and confused by her growing feelings towards Elliot, the big-box developer, Nora throws herself into solving the one problem that everyone in town can agree on--finding Peggy's missing dog, Freckles.

When a disaster strikes the diner, the community of Guthrie bands together to help her, and Nora discovers that doing the right thing doesn't always mean giving up your dreams.

    One of my favorite summer memories is every year we went to the same beach and stayed in the same apartment. It was full of laughter, sunshine, and fun!

      We had so much fun as kid at the beach too. I had a rich aunt that would rent a big place for all of us growing up, it was always so much fun.

  5. Laura Negrete says

    My favorite summer moment so far just occurred this past week. Several from
    my family went to the beach for a few hours. The water was calm, the temperatures mild, and the company brought me many laughs. It was indeed a great day in its simplicity.

  6. Margiesmustreads says

    I love the beach too, I have so many fond memories of the beach.

  7. Ashley Berry says

    We did last minute trips most of the time. Mom would wake us up super early to take us to the beach, and we wouldn’t know we were going. Her and Dad would spend the night packing up the car. It was such a cool experience.

  8. Andi Maples says

    My favorite summer memories are simple ones…running under the sprinkler, eating watermelon and spitting the seeds, staying out until the streetlights came on, buying popsicles from the ice cream man, summer freedom.
