Clara Tanner has lost it all. Her husband is accused in one of the biggest heists on the East Coast, and she relocates her family to Five Island Cove–the hometown she hates.
Her mother and brother live there, though Clara never dreamed she'd be returning to the cove. Not only does she find them waiting for her with open arms, but all of the women in her mother's circle are welcoming too.
Clara and Scott have bought Friendship Inn, a hulking, close-to-condemned building with one hundred fifteen rooms. Neither of them want to run an inn, but with limited options, Clara rolls up her sleeves and digs in.
Alice and Robin are dealing with their oldest children going off to college while AJ is celebrating her son's first birthday. Jean enjoys her Seafaring Girls, and Eloise is having the summer of a lifetime with her new family and busy season at the inn.
As Laurel's due date for her first baby approaches, Kelli learns something she never thought would happen to her, all while Kristen is becoming friendlier and friendlier with a new gentleman in her fifty-five-plus community.
Clara needs all of their help and support in order to rebuild Friendship Inn, and as all the women pitch in, there's so much more getting fixed up, put in place, and restored.
Then a single phone call changes everything.
Will these women in Five Island Cove rally around one another as they've been doing? Or will this finally be the thing that breaks them?
