A Heartwarming Start to a New Series | Welcome to Moonlight Harbor by Sheila Roberts


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, Jenna is determined follow her mother’s philosophy – 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 remembered, 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.


Welcome to Moonlight Harbor is everything I expect when I pick up a new Sheila Roberts novel: a heartwarming, sweet, romantic story set in a charming small town, full of interesting residents. As Jenna Jones adjusts to her new life in Moonlight Harbor, I so enjoyed seeing the drama play out and getting to know the characters and their everyday struggles. Every page was a delight, it’s a great start to a new series, and I recommend Welcome to Moonlight Harbor to readers in need of a quick and fun contemporary read.


Thanks to Pump Up Your Book, I received a complimentary copy of Welcome to Moonlight Harbor and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Sheila Roberts lives on the water in the Pacific Northwest. Her books have been printed in several different languages and have been chosen for book clubs such as Doubleday as well as for Readers Digest Condensed books. Her best-selling novel On Strike for Christmas was made into a movie and appeared on the Lifetime Movie Network, and her novel The Nine Lives of Christmas was made into a movie for the Hallmark Channel. 

When she's not making public appearances or playing with her friends, she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women's hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.
