Publisher's Summary

Escape to the Gulf Coast of Florida with Georgia Carpenter as she gets a second chance at life, love, and happiness.

The Christmas party at the Sea Glass Inn is a long-held tradition, one the townspeople of Blackbird Beach consider the kick-off of the Christmas season. Until, of course, the inn closed, and the party stopped happening.

Now Georgia Carpenter has decided it’s time to restart that tradition, even though the party is a massive undertaking and one that will influence how people feel about the inn for the rest of the year. With the help of her sister, Lilly, Georgia hopes to put on an event that will be merry and bright and spark new interest in the business.

She also wants to dedicate the event to her late, great Aunt Norma. She’s the woman responsible for the inn’s existence and for the change of fortune in Georgia’s life, after all. It’s only fitting that such an amazing woman get an amazing tribute.

But pulling off such a party might require a Christmas miracle. Will the night go off without a hitch? ‘Tis the season to find out....

Awesome Series!!

This series is a recent addition to the Audible Plus library so I decided to try the first book. Well, I've now binge listened to all 8 books. Well done! Excellent series of clean romance reading and I hate to see it end so I'm likely to listen to the entire series again soon.

Kudos to Ms Miller and all the narrators. I enjoyed the various voices. Again, well done.

interesting listen

I've waited until the last installment (or so far the last one) before leaving a review. The overall story is heartwarming, the only thing I had an issue with was the fact that Sam and Levi didn't live with each other after the wedding. If I hadn't already had been neck deep in the series I would have stopped right there because really? who does that? And God forbid if I had read that one first, I definitely wouldn't have gone on to another one. The performers did well.

Beautiful Series..

I wasn't quite sure about this series when I started but book after book it grew on me and drew me into the town and the family/friends. My first time with this author but I am sure I will be reading/listening to more of her work.

narrators

O, personally, found the change of voices for a single character to be distuptive. The male voices especially were dystonic.

I did listen to all 8 bks in a row. That may have contributed to my problem.. Hearing Travis' dialogue in a feminine tone just didn't make it.

Great

I really enjoyed the series. Even though it felt like I never would get through the nine books it really went very fast and I hate it to be over.

Couldn’t get through this one

I listened to all the books in the series leading up to this one but this one was over the top cheesy. I just couldn’t get through it. The others were a little cheesy, but in a sweet, Hallmark way. Too bad.

I enjoyed the thread, well connected,

I am so happy that I was able to hear in sequence! Lots of wine served wasn’t it? More tea and coffee?

Loved these books

I listened to this set one after the other and enjoyed them immensely. They lead straight on from one to another continuing the story. I am glad they were on the included catalogue as they are only approx 5 hours long and don’t think I would have been happy using a credit for each. However, the characters were lovely and the narrators were great. Recommended as an easy feel good read and Blackbird beach sounds like an amazing place you would love to visit/live. Recommended read. Thank you

Totally delightful

The author uses words to paint a wonderful picture, also beautifully narrated.
What a pleasure to listen to a story that makes you feel as if you are actually there,
It was especially nice that there were no swear words or blaspheming, also no steamy love scene descriptions,
Thanks very much to all involved.

Gulf Coast Series

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series of the six books and became involved in the story, enjoying the characters and their place in the community.
It was lovely to find out how the Inn was redecorated and renovated until it reached its former glory after being closed for many years.

Happy ever after

I was wondering if we even needed the final book and could have wrapped it in the previous one, but after listening through this. I am happy they made a final one. This is just a nice way to happily end everything and close the story. Definitely great work, cheesy at times, but it's a feel good story so the cheesiness is part of it. Would highly recommend this to anyone up for a feel good/pick me up story.

Well rounded saga Christian story Could be read alone

Well thought out family drama of a large family Good ideas re helping others also realistic in that being laid off not obvious Enemies to friends takes time on both sides
