In the powerful third installment in her Lowcountry Summer series, New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe returns to the sultry beauty of the Carolina coast and the Muir sisters--an unforgettable tale of family bonds as strong and steady as the tides.

It is the last summer that Marietta "Mamaw" Muir and her three "summer girls" will ever spend at their beloved Sea Breeze before it is sold. As the end draws near, Mamaw and half-sisters Dora, Carson, and Harper struggle to find new places in the world.

Harper intended to stay only a weekend, but a rift with her wealthy, influential mother left her without a home. Free from her mother's tyranny and encouraged by her family on Sullivan's Island, Harper has at last discovered her talents and independent spirit. Now, the historic beach house's fate hinges on her courage to decide the course of her own life. To do so, she must recognize her newfound strengths and accept love fully into her life--of her family, of the lowcountry, and, most of all, of ex-Marine Taylor McClellan, the wounded warrior who has claimed her heart.

This is a really good read. I love the way it deals with the relationships between all three sisters, their grandmother, and the men in their lives. The descriptions of the Lowcountry beaches, traditions and life just make you want to pay a visit.

Excellent end of summer read. I think I missed the second book, but it was easy to pick up the story again. I particularly enjoyed how life also continues for the grandmothers, and not just the sisters!

Perfect Beach read! This book is probabaly the best in the series and a great ending to the trilogy. We get to see how much the girls love each other and the grandmothers. Tender and sweet. Nice way to close!

All summers come to an end, unfortunately! So must this trilogy. All the loose ends are tied up neatly. A fun read.
