The whole town of Acorn Hill and the sisters at the Inn get involved in a local towns person wedding as well as a High School genealogy project. I love this fictional town of Acorn Hill in PA. If it was real I would move there.

The cover of my book (purchased this summer at Walmart, of all places), looks nothing like the one pictured here. It's more up to date and modern looking. :)

Guideposts is the force behind this series of books, and I believe that the original books numbered in the 30 or 40 range. Several of them have been re-written, updated and re-released. I've been slowly buying and reading those. Once you've read the first one, and learned about the Howard sisters, and how after their father died, they turned

This series has multiple authors and the late Jane Orcutt is one of my favorites. I'm very sorry she won't be adding any more titles.

It's a hit or miss proposition when I pick up a new Grace Chapel Inn book. There's also some difficulty in telling where in the series each book falls. There does not appear to be a consistent list of titles and there different site have the same titles in different number positions in the series. That being said, except for my OCD need to read books in order it

This is another wonderful addition to this series based in Acorn Hill, a small town in Pennsylvania. Three sisters have reunited to turn their family home into a Bed & Breakfast. In each book, the reader gets to know each of the sisters, the wonderful & sometimes eccentric town residents and the guests who stay at the B&B.

In this book, a successful author comes to stay to write one of her books and she proceeds to stay mostly to herself. At the same time, a wedding is brewing and all

This book was such a delight.The community of Acorn Hill were seriously one of the most close knit societies I have ever read about.There just seemed to be this closeness that would make you crave to live there.Jane,Alice and Louise are sisters who own a bed and breakfast left to them by their father who was a pastor.After his passing,they came together to help manage the b&b.I also loved the geneology project everyone in the town was involved in,finding out their roots was really interestin ...more

Another of the books from The Tales from the Grace Chapel Inn series. The three Howard sisters come together after their pastor father dies to turn their family home in Pennsylvania into a bed and breakfast. Many of the series are written by a couple of different authors but once you know the background, the books can be read in any order I think. They usually incorporate guests in the inn or some event or holiday going on. They are warm fuzzy, cozy reads! Put out by Guideposts I believe.

I really enjoyed reading this book, a wedding takes place, and also it also features genealogy interests. There was a cozy feeling in this small town of Acorn Hill, where everyone knows everyone else, and ready to help their neighbor, even when disagreements occur, somehow the conflicts are resolved.

:0) I loved how much content this book had...history, the work of an author, a wedding, a teenager finding her way after her mother's death......and then of coarse all the relationship values of the main characters. very very good book and of coarse series!!!
