A widowed artist. An old crush. One summer to get her life back.

**From a USA Today bestselling author**

Ivy Marin’s life implodes after discovering that her late husband had spent their life savings on a beach house. Strapped for cash as an art teacher and with nowhere to go, Ivy and her recently jilted sister head to Summer Beach to recreate their lives. If only renovating a historical home didn’t unveil a host of hidden secrets in the beachside community – and the mayor wasn’t her former high school crush.

Bennett Dylan led a campaign against Ivy’s late husband to block the rezoning of the beach house land for a high-rise resort. Although it’s been 10 years since his wife’s death, Bennett is avoiding the pain of loving – and possibly losing – another woman. And then, the FBI shows up…. Ivy’s demands for a zoning variance for a bed-and-breakfast couldn’t come at a worse time for him.

Despite distractions, Ivy has one summer to sway the town to salvage her livelihood and the new life in Summer Beach she’s come to love.

With spellbinding intrigue and poignant self-discovery, Seabreeze Inn is a sweet summer beach read. If you like sun-soaked beach sagas you can lose yourself in, Seabreeze Inn and Summer Beach’s fascinating characters are for you. Start your vacation in Summer Beach now.

    Ivy’s husband died unexpectedly and she is left to deal with the aftermath. Part of the aftermath is the fact that her husband bought a historic building on the west coast with all their retirement and savings and without her knowledge. Ivy and her sister Shelly travel west to tie up the lose ends to sell the building when suddenly they decide to keep it. Renovations begin so they can begin to rent rooms and have an income. Along the way there are hints of the past that help solve the mystery of what the ladies discover in the basement. Family, community and a high school love interest come together to get the Inn operating and to answer questions about the past. Erin Bennett delivered perfect narration for this story. You won’t want this story to end. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Wonderful Story & Narration🎧 A Heartfelt Delight!

    Seabreeze Inn
    Summer Beach, Book 1
    By: Jan Moran
    Narrated by: Erin Bennett

    I loved everything about this book, from Jan Moran’s wonderful writing style to interesting storylines and characters she created to Erin Bennett’s fabulous narration. The beautiful story flows naturally and the descriptive details are amazing, the author makes you feel like you are right along side the characters seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. The characters are likable and easy to relate to. I adored the lead characters, Ivy and her sister Shelly, as well as Bennett Dylan. The secondary characters are pretty awesome too and contribute a lot to the story. Ivy’s life takes an unexpected turn, she had a life in Boston, a husband, two daughter college age daughters. Then her husband, Jeremy, passes away she learns he had secrets, he not only left her in debt but he had purchased a large property in Summer Beach in her home state of California. She listed the property for sale hoping to pay off the rest of the debt with a bit to spare. Ivy and her sister were heading to California to see their Mom and since the property is not seeing they are visiting the property to see what they can do. Bennett Dylan is the realtor handling the property, she had a crush on him in H.S but he does not remember her so their meeting is less than cordial. Then the unexpected happens, something about the house, calls to Ivy and she decides she is going to keep it. But in order to keep it she has to come up with a plan and that plan includes making it a business, an Inn. She is faced with many obstacles but she is determined to make it work and overcoming them. Including getting the community to accept her, they are skeptical because of her husband and his plans for the property. I loved the history of the property, Las Brisas Del Mar, its previous owner, Amelia. Erickson and what they discovered in the house, I thought it was all fascinating. I admired both Ivy and Shelly, their relationship amongst themselves, their family and the possibility of building new relationships including love interests and most admirable is their courage to start a new life. I loved how everything plays out in this book, it is superbly plotted and there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, a bit of angst, humor, many heartfelt moments and a bit of a slow burn romance. Jan Moran, thank you for this amazing story, I need to visit the “Seabreeze Inn” again and am looking forward to what comes next for these wonderful characters!

    I listened to the Audible edition, Erin Bennett is a talented narrator and voice artist. She does an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart she put into her work as she captures the characters emotions and projects them into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧
