A heartwarming story that will melt your heart. A great cast of characters that draw you into the story. I really hated to see it end.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.

This is the second in the Lobster Bay series. It is a standalone but I recommend reading them in order to understand the characters backstories and development.

This hit close to home for me as I am dealing with placing both parents in some type of long-term care based on their differing needs.

The story is set in the charming and quaint town of Lobster Bay, Maine. The main focus is on Jane and her struggles of having to put her Mother into an elder care facility. The Bed and Breakfast take a bac

Changing Tides is a story about dealing with change and solving problems with the help of friends and family, and in this case even the whole small town of Lobster Bay. Jane had recently placed her mother into an amazing senior care facility. Now all she had to do is get over the guilt, and figure out how to make the family Inn profitable again. She relies on the help and support of her best friends, Claire and Maxie, and her sister Andie who arrives from New York for a visit. Although this is t ...more

This is Book Two in the Lobster Bay Series and I really enjoyed it. Jane, Claire and Maxi’s lives have a lot going on. Fortunately they have each other to turn to when things are rough. Jane’s sister, Andie, is in town, helping out at the inn, and trying to figure out when she is going back to her job at Christie’s in New York. Hopefully she will stay in Lobster Bay. The author is doing a fabulous job with this series!

This is a superbly written, heart-warming story.
Set in the charming and quaint town of Lobster Bay, Maine.
Changing Tides is the 2nd book in the Lobster Bay series. While it is considered a stand alone novel, it's better to read them in order to get the full back-stories on the characters.
This book focuses more on Jane, and her struggles of having to put her Mother into an Elder Care facility, and then trying to figure out how to run the family's B&B.
When her sister comes home for a rare visit,

Changing Tides is Book 2 in the Lobster Bay Book Series
This is a new author that writes women's fiction that is heart warming and poignant.

It was great revisiting characters from the first book and especially more of a focus on Jane in this book. Jane has a lot to deal with . She is going through the deeply emotional process of putting her mom into an assisted living facility while still running the Bed and Breakfast. Jane's sister comes home to help. I really loved how the sisters had the chan

This second book in the Lobster Bay series picks up with the three childhood friends found in Saving Sandcastles. Each of the three woman experience many of the same issues most modern women have with empty nests, husband's affairs, divorce, aging parents and starting over. Life in quiet coastal Maine lend to solutions and better lives ahead. This focuses on Jane Miller who assumes the role of inn keeper of the families inn as her mother's dementia progresses. It

This book touched my heart!

It was so nice to read about all the characters from book 1! Now Jane is the protagonist. A beautiful story that moved me. Well written. I cared about Jane so much and it was so good to read her story! Summers has done it again. She has delivered another book that I couldn’t put down. Another book for my favorites list.

Great Author

This is a very good series. Can’t wait until the next book comes out. Just wish I would have waited to read all thee together.
Grace LaPlante
This was a relatively easy read. Not having read Book One, it wasn't difficult to pick up the story line.
I'll definitely read Book Three to find out how it all ends : )

The 2nd book was a good read and I enjoyed it, The characters evolved more in this book but could still be more in depth!
