I really liked "The Secret Dreams of Sarah-Jane Quinn", and I enjoyed catching up with the characters, especially Sarah and Gus. They have their hands full running the Inn, and are supposed to be enjoying a quiet week when a lot of people show up unannounced.

Sarah and Gus are pretty happy, so most of the drama comes from the others, particularly Gretchen and her eldest daughter Luci. I wasn't really into the Luci storyline (even less enthusiastic about her romantic life), and Gretchen just came

Loved every minute of it! I couldn't wait for more Gus and Sarah and Sharon sure didn't disappoint.

I can't wait for the next book! ...more

Honestly, this author can do no wrong. I was completely sucked in (again) by this amazing family and their every day ups and downs. I seriously hope this is just the beginning of a new series, because I NEED more of these beautiful characters.
