Hope's grandmother "Nona" dies in her sleep in her 90's. She loved her so much and was very close to her as a child, and wrote her letters on a regular basis. Hope hadn't been home for a long time though. She hadn't even seen her two sisters in a long time either. She and her sisters Faith and Charity were named for the three mountains in Sisters, Oregon. Will Hope be able to get along with her sisters, get through things that happened in the past that drove her away from her hometown and family, and would she ever find contentment or love at all?

I read this within a day, and there was so much drama in it and so many misunderstandings and heightened emotions, that sometimes it actually irritated me (which meant I felt the story). However, it did seem not very Christian-like either. It seemed like the "Christian" people were okay with living like the world or not facing their problems at times to get their own way. There were things about God mentioned and the Bible here and there, but I don't think enough. Also there were some sentence structure issues at times. I don't know how some of these things slipped past the editors.

I do think this story was a bit realistic in certain ways and at the same time I think other issues were too well patched up too. This book didn't have much of a romantic tale and I felt like I couldn't connect or didn't get to know certain characters as well as I would have liked to. It wasn't bad, but definitely not one of my favorites in the "Love Finds You" books (which I've read over a dozen of these).

I really liked this book, in fact I have enjoyed all of the Love Finds You series. Hope comes home to Sisters, Oregon, for her grandmother's funeral and has to deal with her awful sisters! Much to her family's chagrin, Hope inherits her grandmother, Nona's entire estate which includes a small house, a dog, and almost a million dollars! This gives Hope a chance to start over, but her sisters' anger and jealousy make it hard. I enjoyed the house renovation parts. I would recommend this book.

this has been one of my favorites out of this Love Finds You series. I didn't see it so much romance as I saw it more like a sister coming to terms with herself and how her sisters were/are. I didn't think the ending was all nice and tidied up for everyone but she was ok and I enjoyed reading this one a lot for the sisters aspect and the getting over the past.
