Sweet Beginnings by Nicole Ellis

Book 1 in the Candle Beach Sweet Romance series

Dahlia thought settling her aunt’s estate in the town where she’d spent every summer as a child would be easy, a one or two day job at the most. Discovering that she’s inherited a crumbling house and a failing bookstore puts a wrench in that plan.

With a nasty trustee who is determined to keep her from selling her inheritance and Garrett, a handsome neighbor who challenges her at every step, she doesn’t expect to have a future there.

However, Candle Beach grows on her and she sees transformations in herself that she didn’t expect. With her childhood friends wanting her to stay and a developing attraction to Garrett, could Aunt Ruth’s bequest be the key to Dahlia’s happily ever after?

“This is a great story of finding your way, finding friends and love along the way.” ~ Amazon Reviewer
