Home is where the heart is... Brilliant cardiac surgeon Heather Preston has invested everything to achieve her dream of working at a world renowned hospital. When an unsettling call from her grandfather the retired general brings her back to her childhood lakeside home, she rediscovers the appeal of life in a small town, the joys of free-spirited youth—and Jake Harper.

"Small town, big family, and mismatches that will steal your heart! Delightful!" Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times bestselling author of the Dogfather Series.

More on Hart Land Lakeside Inn:

Come and stay in one of the quaint and cozy cottages at Hart Land—but be warned, once you meet the family and delightful cast of characters, you may never want to leave.

Fiona Hart is the devoted matriarch. Elegant, wise, and arts patron, but despite all her efforts, she has yet to find her own artistic outlet. Lucy isn’t just a housekeeper, she’s part of the family. She also fancies herself a real life Dolly Levy, except she’s much better at cooking up trouble than the perfect match. Innkeeper and retired general Harold Hart believes in hard work, discipline, and whatever his beloved wife wants. Katie O’Leary runs the One Stop, makes the best Irish soda bread this side of the Blarney Stone, and no one is quite sure if it’s more than her baking that has the magic touch. Did we mention the Harts have nine granddaughters?

Having grown up spending summers together on the lake, the cousins are as close as sisters—closer. Each woman knows there’s no place like Hart Land. They can always count on their grandfather’s gruff, their grandmother’s sage advise, Lucy’s fresh baked cookies, Katie’s inspiration, the calming scent of fresh air—and each other.

Follow along with friends, family, neighbors, and guests as the Harts maneuver life’s curves, and just maybe find love along the way.

Heather author: Chris Keniston: fun book

I enjoyed this easy read. Quite different from the
suspense novels I usually read. the characters seem very real, and I love the way the author describes life in a small town. The setting sounds beautiful, and I can totally believe an over worked heart surgeon would want to give up the big city job to live and work in a more relaxed atmosphere. The General and is wife are delightful characters .

Cute small town story

Nice start to a series. Very sweet and family orientated. Was a bit much to keep track of all the sisters and cousins though. As it’s the first book, hopefully it gets easier as the series progresses.

Family love

Heather is a very fine cardiologist. She decided at nine years that she would be a fine Doctor. She read, read, read as she wanted to be worthy. She is part of a very large family. She had missed a lot of Sunday family dinners due to her job. So one of her sisters guilts her in to calling Grandma. She hears her grandfather coughing. So she takes almost a week at their home trying to get grandfather to let her check to make sure he is okay. So, while there she gets together with Jake and as they saw more of each other made them realize they love each other. So, Heather gets to work at the local hospital. The epilogue contains a wonderful engagement celebration.
I recommend this book highly, I am pretty sure you will love it too. There are several medical emergencies with Heather and Jake taking care.
