** spoiler alert ** This is a good story about the Fox family, three sisters Abbie, Emma and Lilly along with their father Jim.

Abbie has been working overseas but Lilly sends an email asking Abbie to come home urgently as Emma has lost her job and her fiance and will not get out of bed and Lilly cannot handle it. Abbie decides to come home and at first Emma still does no want to get out of bed. To add to Lilly's problems her father has rented out their cottage to a woman he seems to be interested in, Lilly's jealous even though her mother has been dead for some year and Jim has been on his own for a number of years.

In the course of this busy summer on Nantucket, Abbie and Emma start a company where they hire themselves out to help families - babysitting, reading for older people, shopping and helping out as required. Lilly works for the local paper so finds herself invited to lots of parties where she meets a woman Ertha who asks her to come and work for her. From the jobs they take on both Abbie and Emma meet someone special and Lilly finds her special man too. Jim finds his worman - though there is a hiccup in each relationship.

To cut the story short, it was happy, it was said and I enjoyed it. The ending was happy which is what I want in my fiction reading.
