Hannah Martin thought she was about to have an empty nest . . . until the illegitimate daughter of her late husband shows up on her doorstep.
Five years after her husband’s death, Hannah Martin runs a successful inn and serves the needy in her community. Despite a house full of guests, she’s worried about the loneliness that will come with an empty nest. Now that no one needs her for anything other than serving her famous five-course breakfasts and retrieving fresh towels, she throws herself into winning Camden’s Hospitality Grant. With the help of the grant, the bed and breakfast will bring in even more customers and Hannah won’t have time to think about what she’s missing.
But when a handsome lumberjack named Kevin moves in next door, Hannah’s attraction to the widowed bachelor knocks her off-kilter. Just as she begins to think about dating again, a young woman arrives at the bed and breakfast claiming to be the illegitimate daughter of Hannah’s late husband.
When the Orchard House’s chances at the Hospitality grant is threatened, Hannah’s children oppose her “new” daughter moving in, and Kevin’s problems start to bleed over into her own, she must decide what matters most—before she loses the grant, the bed and breakfast’s reputation, and perhaps, her second chance at love.
This is Book 7 in The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast Series, a contemporary twist on the well-loved classic, Little Women. Readers will fall in love with the Martin family—Maggie, Josie, Lizzie, Bronson, Amie, and their mother Hannah—each trying to find their own way in the world and each discovering that love, home, and hope are closer than they appear.

He smiled, and it was a nice smile. A little worn and rugged around the edges, but warm and genuine, spreading all the way up to his eyes which crinkled at the corners. He held his hand out to me. “Hello. My name’s Kevin. Kevin Williams. I just moved in next door.”
“Oh!” I placed my hand in his, the large warm fingers enveloping mine. “I’m Hannah. It’s nice to meet you.” The Perry home had sold only a few weeks ago. If I’d known our new neighbors were moving in so quickly, I would have planned to reach out—at least bring over a coffee cake. Then again, with Amie and August’s wedding fast approaching and my increase in volunteer hours at Amos’s mission, I’d been a bit out of sorts. Not at the top of my planning game.
He squeezed my hand and a flush worked over my body. Huh. Now that was new. Unless it was simply a hot flash. Those certainly were becoming more and more commonplace.
I released his hand. “How are you enjoying Camden?”
“Great town. I’m looking forward to the fishing.”
“Be sure to try Penobscot River. It’s famous for its landlocked salmon. The best I’ve ever had.”
His eyebrows raised. “You a fisherwoman?”
I laughed. “Good grief, no. But I try to know a little bit about everything to help our guests find their adventures.”
He nodded, stroking his beard thoughtfully. “A woman who knows a little bit about everything. I’ll keep that in mind.”
