Welcome to Moonglow Cove, Texas, a place where your neighbors know your name and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico lap lazily against the sands. It’s a magical spot, especially in the summertime…
Once the town was the home of the Clark sisters—brought up by their grandmother at the Moonglow Inn. Nicknamed “The Moonglow Sisters”, as children they were inseparable. Then, a wedding-day betrayal tore them apart and they scattered across the globe and away from each other. But the sisters have at last come home…
There’s Maddie: smart, sensible, and stubborn. Shelley, who ran off to find her bliss. And Gia, a free-spirit determined to keep the peace. It’s her impending wedding that keeps them together…but Gia has a secret, and when her sisters find out all heck is going to break lose!
The Moonglow Sisters continues Lori Wilde’s trademark storytelling to create an unforgettable novel of family, betrayal, love, and second chances.
The Moonglow Sisters by Lori Wilde is everything I hoped it would be and more. The cover drew me in first, next the description but it is the story within that kept me happily turning pages and discovering a new favorite author!

Madison, Shelly, and Gia are the Moonglow sisters, orphaned at a young age and sent to live with their Grammy Chapman at the Moonglow Inn, a Bed and Breakfast in Moonglow Cove right on the Gulf of Mexico. They are as close as sisters can be, beautiful, talented, and inseparable until one tragic betrayal tears the sisters apart, each of them finding a different life in different parts of the world. Five years later they are reunited by another tragedy and must navigate all the feelings that led to their estrangement.
What a wonderful story this is! All the ups and downs of complex relationships, especially those of sisters, is explored in a heart-warming and at times, heart-rending tale. Ms. Wilde’s Moonglow Cove is such a beautiful place and her descriptive writing makes it so easy to visualize. What really made the story hard to put down is the well-written characters! I really liked the sisters and their intricate and complicated relationship; Maddie hardened by her drive and anger, Shelly doing all she can to escape the middle child syndrome, and Gia doing her best to always smooth things over and play peace-maker. Grammy and Darynda are amazing secondary characters and I loved reading their story. Such well-developed characters always stay with me.
I’m looking forward to reading more by Lori Wilde.
