Today’s book review features
The Sisters of Sea View by Julie Klassen.
About the Book
When their father’s death leaves them impoverished, Sarah Summers convinces her sisters to open their seaside home to guests to provide for their ailing mother. Emily and Georgiana agree, but Viola, who wears a veil to cover a scar, detests the idea.
Determined to stay together, the sisters begin the new venture. Instead of the elderly invalids they expect, however, they find themselves hosting eligible gentlemen. Sarah is torn between a growing attraction to a mysterious Scottish widower and duty to her family. Meanwhile, the new situation exposes Viola’s scars–both the visible and those hidden deep within–and her cloistered heart will never be the same.

I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.
The Sisters of Sea View is the first book in Julie Klassen’s new Regency series On Devonshire Shores.
This is the story of the Summers family as they open a guest home in an attempt to stay financially afloat. It follows the point of view of three of the sisters, and their possible romances.
At first, the older sister was my favorite, but quickly I couldn’t wait for each of Viola’s scenes. I loved her romance and how she came to terms with her own situation. I won’t say more for risk of spoilers … but the ending could be more satisfying. I’m hopeful the rest of the series will provide that.
Fans of Julie Klassen’s books and Regency stories will love this book. The short scenes make it a page-turner. And now I’m anxiously awaiting book two so I can learn what happens next.
