From New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart comes the first novel in her all-new series, The Hudson Sisters, following a trio of reluctant sisters in the aftermath of their father's passing who, as they set out to fulfill his dying wish discover the truth not only about their pasts, but about each other--and themselves--in a way that will forever alter their futures...

When celebrated and respected agent Fritz Hudson passes away, he leaves a trail of Hollywood glory in his wake--and two separate families who never knew the other existed. Allie and Des Hudson are products of Fritz's first marriage to Honora, a beautiful but troubled starlet whose life ended tragically. As his relationship with Honora unraveled, Fritz was falling in love on the Delaware Bay with New Age hippie Susa Pratt--but, while Fritz loved Susa with everything he had and fathered daughter Cara with her, he never quite managed to come clean about his West Coast family.

Now Fritz is gone, and the three sisters are brought together under strange circumstances: there's a large inheritance to be had, one that could save Allie from her ever-deepening debt following a disastrous divorce; allow Des to open a rescue shelter for abused and wounded animals; and give Cara a fresh start after her husband left her for her best friend--but only if the sisters upend their lives and work together to restore an old theater that was Fritz's obsession growing up in his small hometown in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains. Will the sisters come together to turn their father's dream into a reality--and will they come away with far more than they bargained for?

This is a new author to me. Wow, was I impressed! I listened to the audio version and just did not have enough time to listen as much as I wanted for as long as I wanted. The story of three sisters brought together by their father's will. (Suprise, he had two different families!) They must live and work together to restore an old theater in their father's home town.
I loved the journey these three took in this book! Their journey in getting to know each other is filled with humor and love. This was just a great book.! There are two more in the series and I'm continuing the journey with them. I can't wait!
