A Walk Along the Beach by Debbie Macomber

A Walk Along the Beach

Debbie Macomber

The Lakey sisters are perfect opposites. After their mother died and their father was lost in grief, Willa had no choice but to raise her sister, Harper, and their brother, Lucas. Then, as an adult, she put her own life on hold to nurse Harper through a terrifying illness. Now that Harper is better and the sisters are living as roommates, Willa has realized her dream of running her own bakery and coffee shop, bringing her special brand of caretaking to the whole Oceanside community. Sean O’Malley is as charming as he is intriguing; a freelance photographer whose assignments take him to the ends of the earth. Soon Willa is falling for him in a way that is both exciting and terrifying. But life has taught Willa to hedge her bets, and she wonders whether the potential heartache is worth the risk.
 
Life has more challenges in store for them all. Both sisters will discover that even in the darkest moments, family is everything.
