"Inseparable since the sudden loss of their mother as teenagers, Willa and Harper Lakey are perfect opposites. Quiet, demure Willa has always admired Harper's sense of fearlessness and adventure, but enjoys her peaceful routine as a caf ̌owner in their quaint, coastal hometown of Oceanside, Washington. When a handsome customer shows interest in Willa, Harper urges her sister to take a chance on love - something totally out of Willa's comfort zone. But just as Willa begins to explore the possibilities, Harper receives crushing news that threatens to bring everything to a screeching halt. Though the time ahead may be trying, little do Willa and Harper know that it will bring about the most beautiful rewards"--Provided by publisher.
Oceanside, Washington. After their mother died and their father was lost in grief, Willa had no choice but to raise her sister, Harper, and their brother, Lucas.

Now Willa has realized her dream of running her own bakery and coffee shop, and Harper announces her plan to summit Mount Rainier. She encourages Willa to do something outside her comfort zone-- like take a chance on love with freelance photographer Sean O'Malley. -- adapted from jacket.

Loved the relationship between the two sisters.
Enjoyed the book, although the ending with Harper is so sad.
I've read this several times now.
Debbie Macomber is one, if not, my favorite author. ♥

Debbie Macomber never disappoints readers. Her stories are filled with human feelings, real life events that her readers can identify with. I would give this one a 4*, definitely one to read -there are some sad moments, but it still is a good one not to miss!

Not a book to lift your spirits, found it very depressing. Need something more uplifting during these challenging times.
Only got half way,and quite.

I have always loved Debbie Macomber and her writing style. Her books are always quick reads. This one is written as wonderfully as always, but if you are looking for uplifting and happy, this is not the best choice.

I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books. I find myself staying up late into the night to read her books. This one really touched me as it told of the special relationship between two sisters. I found myself befriending both Willa and Harper.
