Megan Williams | 5 comments The book is about a woman moving to a beach community to help her aging aunt fix up and run her motel with hopes of inheriting it. When she arrives she finds it in much worse shape than she thought but since she has no money and she moved herself and her daughter her she much forge onward. It looked like it was the beginning of a series. I read it in 2016-2017.

Welcome to Moonlight Harbor by Sheila Roberts (Book 1 in the Moonlight Harbor series). It was published in 2018, so a little later than you mentioned but the plot sounds just like your description!

Once happily married, Jenna Jones is about to turn forty, and this year for her birthday—lucky her—she’s getting a divorce. She’s barely able to support herself and her teenage daughter, but now her deadbeat artist ex is hitting her up for spousal support…and then spending it on his “other” woman.

Still, as her mother always says, every storm brings a rainbow. And when she gets a very unexpected gift from her great-aunt Edie, things seem to be taking a turn for the better. Aging Aunt Edie is finding it difficult to keep up her business running The Driftwood Inn, so she invites Jenna to come live with her and run the place. It looks like Jenna’s financial problems are solved!

Or not. The town is a little more run-down than Jenna remembers, but that’s nothing compared to the ramshackle state of The Driftwood Inn. Aunt Edie is confident they can return it to its former glory, though Jenna feels like she’s jumped from the proverbial frying pan into the beach fire.

But who knows? With the help of her new friends and a couple of handsome citizens, perhaps that rainbow is on the horizon after all. Because, no matter what, life is always good at the beach.

THANK YOU...that is EXACTLY the book. I was telling a friend about it and for the life of me could not remember the name or author.
