Escape to the Cornish coast this spring with a trip to the beautiful Emerald Cove, where the sea sparkles in the sunshine, the sand glitters like gold, and true love is in the air. From the bestselling author of Sunrise over Sapphire Bay comes this gorgeously romantic and uplifting tale.
Skye Philips and Jesse Hamilton have a complicated relationship. They’ve been neighbours, best friends and even briefly married. But ever since Skye returned to the beautiful shores of Jewel Island to help her sisters Aria and Clover run their family hotel, she doesn’t know where she stands with Jesse.
When they’re together the chemistry between them sizzles, but with Jesse living in Canada and Skye on the Cornish island she calls home, they’ve kept things casual. Till now…
Jesse is coming to Jewel Island for the annual Pudding Parade and Skye knows this is her chance to tell him how she really feels. But putting her heart on the line isn’t easy when it’s been broken in the past. Will Jesse return her love? Or will she lose him for good?
Everything she's ever wanted can be hers if she's willing to take the chance, but is Skye brave enough to risk her heart once again?'
Set sail to the Cornish coast where sunshine, laughter and romance awaits. This stunning love story is guaranteed to steal your heart this summer; it’s the perfect read for fans of Sarah Morgan, Veronica Henry and Jill Mansell.
I feel like I have been waiting for this book for ages. I could see Skye and Jesse’s relationship bubbling in the background of the first two books in this series and I’ve been so excited to hear their story. This is the third book in the Jewel Island series but each book focuses on a different couple so they can all be read as standalones.
Skye first met Jesse when she was in Canada a few years before this book is set. Skye has now returned to the UK and is living back where she grew up. Syke and Jesse are quite clearly made for each other. Both have been through the mill in their past which really hinders them in letting down their walls. Both have different hook-ups but seeing how they overcame them and became stronger for it gave me all the feels.
Holly really pulled at the heartstrings in this one. There were so many hurdles for Skye and Jesse. I definitely shed a few tears in this book. Some happy, some sad. I was so pulled into the story I felt like I was one of the sisters!
Skye runs an Ice Cream Cafe. It sounds like a place I would definitely frequent. Not only do they sell Ice creams but also all different types of desserts from pancakes to waffles to churros! If I lived on Jewel Island I think I’d move into Skye’s cafe! I have serious cravings for waffles and ice cream. Sadly I was still in lockdown when I read this. When the cafe’s open I might have to get myself out there to grab some waffles and ice cream. For now, I’m off to grab the Ben and Jerrys from the freezer!
