This book is full of comfort and happiness. The main character is trying to find peace after she finds out her marriage is ending. She finds her passion, romance, friendship, and peace by restoring the old Inn her grandmother used to own. I loved how vivid everything was in this book; from the emotions, to the scenery, to the recipes. It made you want to be a guest there and meet these people. I love stories like this.

The Guestbook is a warm and endearing story about a woman Lily leaving her failed marriage and finding hope and renewal at her grandmother's old bed and breakfast on Medrona Island in upstate Washington where the apples and the air are crisp and the people are friendly and accepting and the love is contagious. She meets so many new and wonderful friends such as Jude, outgoing and helpful, who owns the the Island Time Cafe. Kyla, quiet yet friendly and battling her own issues, who owns the Tea and Comfort shop. She meets and befriends her neighbor John who is an elderly man whose grandson Ian becomes Lily's love interest over time.
Lily finds her grandmother Maggie's old guestbook and initially finds a few cookie recipes inside it. She reads the entries written in the guestbook from the people who had stayed at the bed and breakfast over the years and always feels a sense of renewal afterwards. The guestbook keeps her moving forward with plans of re-opening the inn. The one thing she can't find though is her grandma Maggie's heavenly brownie recipe.
I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and pleasant and I would love to see a follow up book to The Guestbook. I would recommend this book for a great summer listen or read.
I also thought that Teri Schnaubelt did an absolutely terrific job with the characters in this book. All the characters were distinctly different and she had great flow in her performance. I look forward to more from her and the author Andrea Hurst.
I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
