Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: July 21, 2020
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
A battle for a charming Cape Cod inn…
But what happens when romance checks in?
Single mom Laura Lessoway won’t accept her mother’s plan of selling her late grandmother’s beachfront inn without a fight. But when big-city attorney Jonathan Masters arrives to arrange an offer from his client, she’s drawn to him. And although he came to Cape Cod to close an important business deal—not fall in love—he can’t get her out of his mind.
Laura and Jonathan each try to fight their attraction and focus on business, but it’s not long before Jonathan finds himself confiding in her his other reason for coming to The Sea Glass Inn—he’s trying to find his mentally ill father, who’s recently been spotted at a nearby homeless shelter.
Working together to find Jonathan’s father only brings Laura and Jonathan closer. But with his career and her home on the line, can they ever find common ground?

GUEST POST FROM MEGHANN
Inspiration for the setting:
My maternal grandparents owned a beachside inn on Cape Cod where I spent my summers as a child, and when I started writing Falling for the Innkeeper, I knew I wanted to go back there and visit their inn on paper.
I have so many fond memories from those Cape Cod summers—sitting in the dining room of the inn and eating pastries from the local bakery for breakfast; walking out on the jetty at the mouth of the local harbor with my family; collecting shells and sea glass with my cousins; playing pinball with my dad and sister at the local pizza parlor; body surfing and boogie boarding on the windy, wavy days.
Years later, my husband and I met after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. He actually called me to schedule our date right before I was set to go on my family’s annual Cape Cod vacation, so I asked him to call me again after I got back.
I hadn’t been too impressed with him based on that initial phone conversation. On a walk on the jetty with my mom, I told her that he “seemed kind of serious,” and she replied, “Well, you never know.”
As usual, my mom was right, and the next summer, my now-husband joined all of us for our family vacation on Cape Cod. Even though my own personal love story didn’t start on Cape Cod as Laura and Jonathan’s does in Falling for the Innkeeper, the jetty that’s featured in the book will always hold a special place in my heart.
