"From Mariah Stewart, New York Times bestselling author of The Chesapeake Diaries series, comes the next book in her popular Hudson Sisters series, which follows a trio of reluctant sisters who set out to fulfill their father's dying wish and discover themselves in the process in this "sweet reminder of the importance of family" (First for Women). California girl Allie Hudson Monroe can't wait for the day when the renovations on the Sugarhouse Theater are complete so she can finally collect the inheritance from her father and leave Pennsylvania. After all, her life and her fourteen-year-old daughter are in Los Angeles. But Allie's divorce left her tottering on the edge of bankruptcy, so to keep up on payments for her house and her daughter's private school tuition, Allie packed up and flew out east. But fate has a curve-ball or two to toss in Allie's direction--she just doesn't know it yet. She hadn't anticipated how her life would change after reuniting with her estranged sister, Des, or meeting her previously unknown half-sister, Cara. And she'd certainly never expected to find small-town living charming. But the biggest surprise was that her long-forgotten artistry would save the day when the theater's renovation fund dried up. With opening day upon the sisters, Allie's free to go. But for the first time in her life, she feels like the woman she was always meant to be. Will she return to the West Coast and resume her previous life, or will the love of "this amazing, endearing family of women" (Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author) be enough to draw her back to the place where the Hudson roots grow so deep?"--

I listened to the audio version of this book. I have listened to all three in the series and have loved every single one! They were my first experience with Stewart.
I loved the whole concept of the three "sisters" having to work together on the old theater and in essence having to work together to learn what a family is and how to become one. My relationship with my sisters hasn't been exactly bump free, so them coming together was sweet for me.
The main sister character in this book was Allie with her daughter, Nikki, coming in a very close second. Nikki sure had a hard time of it in this book, but Allie was the momma bear she needed to be in order to protect her. That was so welcome!
It sounded as if Stewart was winding up the story of the sisters at the end of this book. I hope not. Of course, there is one more....
