Nestled in a cove on Oregon's coastline, the town of Somewhere is charming, picturesque, inhabited by townsfolk who love their community - and teeming with mystery.

Somewhere to spend Christmas.
Is there somewhere that wishes come true?
When the bus Sunny Fairbanks is traveling on stops for a layover in the small seaside town of Somewhere, she decides to walk on the beach at sunrise - and falls in love with the area. Her decision to remain in Somewhere for a few days is solidified when she steps on a shard of glass. A young man jogging along the shoreline comes to her aid, and she is forced to do something she hates - accept help.
Vicky Patterson continues to be amazed that her brother was able to send her a message from beyond the grave through her friends Faith Bennison and Baxter Hope. And that message has set her free from a lifetime of guilt. In fact, she's so free that she takes on the task of heading up a group of protesters against Wainwright Resorts, the corporation that wants to purchase a portion of the town's public beach and build a world class resort that will, of course, destroy the quaintness of her community. She's angry with Michael Wainwright, III, and intent on stopping his plans.
Gabby Hope, a widow and owner of Hope Bed & Breakfast, wants to get Leo Constanzo, a widower, out of her system, so she proposes something utterly inappropriate and is shocked when he agrees.
Belinda Hope, who died decades earlier, kept a diary that revealed the happenings behind her daughter's disappearance, and then her own, years later. Now that she's ready to step into the light of eternity, she needs to get a message to someone on the other side about where the diary is hidden.

Enjoyed book 2 as much as book 1!
Verna Clay is a wonderful writer. This story continues from book 1, but it definitely stands alone. I love books that continue, but not necessary to read the past books. It is like catching up with an old friend. haha I was so glad that Michael finally won over Vicky! oops...hope that isn't a spoiler for some. (I got excited). Now, if we could just get Gabby and Leo straightened out! Book 3, here I come!
Cate Barratt is a fine narrator. I still thing, as I did for book 1, that her voice is too mature for the characters, but, considering the age of Gabby, maybe that won't bother me as much for book 3. She does a great job of narration in the timber, cadence and characters and I found zero distraction, which is always good.
I am definitely enjoying this series!
