Maggie's Bed and Breakfast: A New Start by Eva D Beaty is a heart-warming contemporary love story told through a compelling cast of characters. When her husband Don was still alive, they had discussed plans for opening a bed-and-breakfast. After losing his battle with cancer, Maggie realizes he had made sure she would have the finances to start the business without him. Maggie and her sister Marty begin looking for the right place to establish the new business and soon find a suitable property. Don’s brother Alex, who is in town to visit his brother’s grave, stays with Maggie. They begin to develop feelings for each other. Maggie and Marty's mother also returns after years of separation and she reveals unsettling information that could change their lives.
The novel is a beautiful tale that explores family relationships and friendships in an intriguing, realistic way. I loved the themes of hope and healing included in the story and enjoyed the close relationship Maggie and Marty share. The characters were original and fresh and the turns in the plot were surprising. Though the plot slows down in some places, many lovely friendships are explored. The cozy backdrop also forms a suitable setting for the scenes portrayed. Maggie's Bed and Breakfast by Eva D Beaty is an uplifting contemporary romance with positive themes. It includes interesting characters and a charming love story that develops after a tragic and painful loss.
