Fans of Jenny Oliver, Cathy Bramley and Debbie Johnson will love this hilarious and heart-warming romantic comedy! A storm is brewing on the stunning Cornish coast – but will sunshine follow the rain?
When Annie Trebarwith unexpectedly inherits Tregavara House, her much-loved family home atop the cliffs of Salt Bay, she begins to wonder: with all the good friends and warm memories she’s made in the village, could it be her forever home?
Luckily her gorgeous Poldark-lookalike boyfriend, Josh Pasco, has exactly the same idea. High on the Cornish cliffs he gets down on one knee, and Annie has everything she’s ever dreamed of.
But when a summer storm causes catastrophic damage to the beautiful but aging house, Annie and Josh are faced with tumbling tiles and a massive repair bill – and a roof that’s leaked straight onto her wedding gown…
Can the Salt Bay community save Annie’s house and her wedding – and give Annie the happy-ever-after she’s always wanted?
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour. I read the second book in this series at Christmas and I loved Salt Bay and I couldn’t wait to return.
Annie and Josh are now living happily in Tregavara house along with Alice, Annie’s Great Aunt Storm, Annie’s half sister, and Emily, Alice’s carer. Annie and Josh are happier than ever. Annie is just as likeable as she was in the previous book and I couldn’t help but root for her.
Storm has settled down since she’s been living with Annie and the others. She’s got a Saturday job and she’s attending school and making friends. But poor Alice’s health is rapidly declining and Annie isn’t sure how she will cope without her.
Salt bay is a village nestled in Cornwall. It has beautiful cliffs and a gorgeous beach. I enjoyed my escape from this chilly spring to the warm and beautiful Salt bay. This book is full of warm inviting characters. The villagers are a force of nature and will do anything for one of their own. I admire their loyalty and community spirit.
There were no big twists in this book. It was easy to see where the story was going but it is delightfully written. Liz’s writing has the perfect mix of romance with a smidge of drama. I look forward to more of Liz’s books in the future.
