About Simply Irresistible:
Maddie Moore’s whole life needs a makeover.
In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.
Starting over won’t be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.
The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes-and mouth-are making it hard for her to remember that she’s sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie’s struggles to overcome the past, though she’s about to discover that there’s no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.

This was a very light read. Almost too light. I breezed right through it will really little care for the plot or characters. I don’t know that I can put my fingers on why this book wasn’t for me but it just wasn’t. I didn’t care for any of the three sisters; they seemed to be all one note characters. The hero while conflicted in some ways was almost too good in others. The plot was very contrived and the author has a real thing for chests both male and female.
