The USA Today bestselling author of the Oyster Bay series invites readers to return to Evening Island for a heartwarming, stand-alone story about three sisters at very different crossroads in their lives who reunite for one unforgettable summer at their family's lake house.
The Taylor sisters spent every summer at their family’s lake house, but as they grew up, they also grew apart. Now, in honor of their late mother’s wishes, they reunite on Evening Island, each hoping to find the best part of themselves they’d left behind.
Kim is just weeks away from what should be her dream wedding, but as the big day draws closer, her doubts only grow stronger. Some time away may be just the thing she needs to help clear her head…or change her heart.
Heather has always been the reliable sister, but a recent divorce has made everything feel uncertain. When a second chance with an old flame comes along, she must decide if a summer love can last a lifetime.
Andrea’s career is her top priority, even if her heart is no longer in it. When her boss suggests a vacation, a couple of weeks on the island leads to the inspiration she was searching for, and not just for work…
Thanks to the beauty of the island and the memories they share, the sisters come together, search their hearts, and discover what the future holds for each of them at summer’s end.

Finally, Andrea emerged from the car, tucking her phone into her leather handbag, which seemed so out of place for island life. On Evening Island, there were no cars, just good, ol’-fashioned horse and buggies and bicycles, meaning she’d need to pay for extended parking before boarding the ferry. And she wouldn’t say no if Andrea offered to cover it, considering Heather had handled all the driving to the very tip of Michigan, feeling more like a chauffeur than a sister.
She laughed to herself, thinking how many times she had been tempted to tell Andrea that she should take the backseat; at least then Heather might have been able to sing along to the radio.
“You’re in a good mood,” Andrea remarked, and Heather didn’t deny it or fight it. The water stretched far into the distance, interrupted only by a slow-passing ferry, and the sun was warm on her face. She hadn’t gardened much this year, even though she’d once prided herself on the small plot of land in the city that was all hers. Now she pulled the air into her lungs and tipped her head back.
“It’s nice to have a change of scenery, I suppose. The city can wear on you after a while, you know?” But, of course, Andrea didn’t know. She loved the pace of city life; thrived on it.

February 25, 2020 by Rosewood Press
From USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Miles comes the first in a collection of stand-alone novels set on the fictional shores of Evening Island—just a ferry ride across the lake from Blue Harbor, home to the newest heartwarming series!
The Morgan sisters spent many blissful summers at their family's lake house growing up, but as they grew older, their lives took very different paths.
Hope adores her twin girls, but she doesn't love being a stay-at-home mom. When her workaholic husband doesn't support her career aspirations, she packs up the kids and goes to Sunset Cottage, thinking that some time apart will help her decide what she really wants-but when the life she dreamed of becomes a possibility, she is more torn than ever.
Gemma was supposed to be planning her wedding, not trying to get back deposits. And she was supposed to be finished writing her latest romance novel, not staring at a blank screen. Lost and down on her luck, she heads north to Evening Island, hoping to find the inspiration she needs to fill the page, and maybe, her heart.
Ellie is almost perfectly content living in the house that once belonged to her grandmother, even if it does get a little lonely sometimes. Still, work is steady at her art studio and the island continues to serve as a muse, especially when her first love makes a surprise return.
In the course of a month, the Morgan sisters learn that despite their differences and their personal struggles, they might just have more in common than the old summer cottage that they inherited.
