I received a copy of Between Us Girls by Sally John from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Welcome to Casa de Vida—eleven quaint bungalows located three blocks from the Pacific Ocean in tiny Seaside Village, California. Owner Liv McAlister never advertises vacancies beyond a small hand-lettered sign out front, preferring to trust that God will send the right tenant at just the right time. And He always does.
Meet Jasmyn Albright—she’s had more than her share of bad breaks lately, beginning with the tornado that demolished her farmhouse. Emotionally fragile and feeling utterly alone, Jasmyn heads west, hoping to outrun her heartbreak. And she doesn’t stop until she notices a small sign that reads “Vacancy.” Before she’s quite aware of how it all happened, Jasmyn finds herself the newest tenant at Casa de Vida. She hardly dares to hope that her fortunes might be about to change…but of course when God is at work, anything can happen, and new beginnings are one of His specialties.
Sometimes among strangers, family happens. And sometimes, when we least expect it, romance is a welcome guest.
Boy was this a good book! Jasmyn has had a tough life and after a tornado destroys the last thing she has left she's told to take a vacation. When she gets to California she finally feels like she's home. After her rental car and everything else she owns is stolen she meets Liv, owner of Casa De Vida. Liv and all the residents of Casa De Vida welcome Jasmyn into their 'family' and temporarily move her into Cottage eleven. The longer Jasmyn stays at Casa De Vida the more at home she feels. After her vacation is over she goes back to Valley Oaks to find she's homesick. Can she make Case De Vida her permanent home?
