The Guest House by Erika Marks + Giveaway!

Reviewed by Laura Kay

The guest house that sits on the Moss property is so much more then what it appears. For one mother and daughter in Harrisport it is a place where love begins and ends.

In 1966, Tucker Moss a summer kid on Cape Cod broke local girl Edie's heart, while her team was building the guest house on the Moss property. Years later, her very own daughter didn't heed her advice. Her daughter, Lexi endured the same end with Tucker's son, Hudson. Eleven years later Lexi's heartbreak, Hudson's brother Copper arrives back in Harrisport. Copper's arrival opens up old wounds for both Wright women--a long held truth is finally revealed!

Take a trip back in time...to a moment, a kiss to the path you didn't choice. Then eleven years later, the path suddenly opens up again. Do you take it or has the past taught you a lesson?

Beautiful Cape Cod summers filled with townies and summer people. A warm soft spoken love story. A Story about family and making your own way.

A story of a mother and her daughter, the paths they choose. Get ready to fall in love with THE GUEST HOUSE.

THE GUEST HOUSE is mostly about Lexi, but we get to know her brother a little and we get flashbacks of her mom's story. The family seems stuck in the past, none of them really moving forward. Lexi has had no luck in love, her brother still reeling from a divorce. When Copper Moss returns to Harrisport to prepare the family summer home to sell, he begins to pursue Lexi. Not only was Lexi burned by his older brother, but Copper's father had hurt her own mother. How can Lexi let go of the past to be with Copper?

I really enjoyed getting to know the Wright women and their stories. I have to admit I was very surprised by Edie's story, but happily surprised! I kept wondering...and I was pleased. I really understood Lexi, I mean she was hurt horribly when she was young and never really moved beyond that, so it makes sense love would continue to elude her until she could close the door to her past. This is a story you are going to want to throw in your beach bag, slap on some sunscreen, and lay back and enjoy reading. I'm recommending THE GUEST HOUSE!

    but your review hooked me at this point:

    "Take a trip back in time...to a moment, a kiss to the path you didn't choose. Then eleven years later, the path suddenly opens up again. Do you take it or has the past taught you a lesson?"

  20. Sounds like "The Guest House" is a book I'd really enjoy, especially the part about it being on the Cape; I'm a southern Massachusetts girl myself, Plymouth to be exact! I vacationed down the Cape every summer when I was younger.
