Coming Home To Wishington Bay

Home is where the heart is…

Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.

But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.

With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…

Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!

My Review:

What a fantastic read this turned out to be – mind you, I shouldn’t have been surprised. With Maxine Morrey as the author you can guarantee a great, engaging, feel-good story that is packed with laugh out loud humour and a fantastic romance – and this book certainly delivered all that.

Holly is a workaholic, so much so that she’s stressing out and having severe panic attacks. This is spotted by her boss who orders she have an extended holiday to help herself heal. So Holly travels back to Wishington Bay and the home she’s inherited from her Grandmother, Gigi. She is planning to clear out the house, do some work on it and sell it but when she meets Gabe, the doctor living next door, and his brilliant little dog Bryan maybe things won’t go quite as she’d planned!

This is a delightful rom com that has great characters, plenty of twists and turns, some surprises and an engaging romance. I loved the community of Wishington Bay and really hope there will be future stories set in the location and including more of them. This is a story of re-evaluating your life, learning to slow down rather than rush headlong and having time to appreciate the people and places around you. It is a heartwarming story of finding new dreams, love and laughter with a few obstacles along the way! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have no hesitation in highly recommending it and other books by this highly talented author!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Author Bio

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.

As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.

In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’.

Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
