This is one awesome book! It made me fall in love with the small town of Seashell Beach and brought back sweet memories of time with my own family on the coast of California. Although this book is written in three parts by three different authors it felt completely cohesive to me. I enjoyed each different part of the story and I enjoyed how the fortunes from The Fortune Cafe played into each romance! Each different section (there are three) have their own unique romance stories and all include the scenic town of Seashell Beach. I have to say that I chose this book to read because I am a huge fan of Heather B. Moore! I have now become fans of Julie Wright and Melanie Jacobson as well through their amazing stories in The Fortune Cafe! The yummy food that was a part of each story was so well described I was hungry just reading it! There is laughter, frustration, romance, sadness, love, anger...basically every emotion you will experience throughout this book! I highly recommend this book! Find your favorite reading spot and get comfortable because you won't put this book down until you are finished!
