Thank you to Holly for letting me take part in this tour. I absolutely love Holly’s writing style and always look forward to a new book by Holly.

This book is the first in a new series set in Apple Hill Bay. This story follows Fern and Fletcher. From the very first moment these two meet its obvious that they are meant to be. The chemistry is instant and electric. I can see why Fern fell for Fletcher because I was mesmerised by him from the very beginning. Both characters have their past to overcome. I really liked Fern and could easily see myself being part of her friendship group.

Being a big dog lover Bones was one of my favourite characters. He is adorable with bounds of energy. He really stole my heart.

I loved meeting Fern and her family. I look forward to hopefully seeing more books for each of Fern’s brothers.

This story is perfect to read during this heatwave!
