My Review:

This is a book by one of my favourite authors, I’ve loved every book I’ve read by her and this is no exception! Six years ago, Aaron was best man for his brother, Lee, and Clancy was bridesmaid for her cousin, Alice, at the wedding that didn’t happen as the bride-to-be ran away. Aaron and Clancy had been attracted to each other and shared a hot kiss at the wedding eve get together but Alice’s actions tore away any possible romantic ideas for them both. Now it is Clancy who has been betrayed by both her fiancé and the people she’s set up business with so she’s travelling to Nelson’s Bar, a small Norfolk seaside village, where she’ll act as caretaker for Roundhouse Row holiday cottages whilst she decides what to do next with her life.

This is a fantastic second chance romance with great characters and much re-evaluation and development of relationships, expectations and romance. The community of Nelson’s Bar has its own expectations, protecting its own and being wary of interlopers but there’s also a jealous mischief-maker, protective parents, development plans, potential romances and even unexpected visitors. Sue Moorcroft brings is so skilled at making her characters realistic – you can imagine walking down the street and meeting them. There are some to admire, some to love and some you’d really prefer to avoid – just like in real life. Together they make this a story full of surprising twists and turns, one that I really hope will be the first in a new series as I’d love to visit there again to catch up on all the ‘goings on’ in this coastal community. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who is looking for a lovely, summery read – whatever the season!

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

  1. So glad to see that you liked this one, too! I absolutely love what you wrote about how she writes characters— Moorcroft just knows how to make them feel real. It really is like being plopped down in a village.

      Totally agree with you, she’s an amazing writer – I love it when I discover she has a new book being released. I really hope this will be the first in a series as I’d love to revisit this community and catch up on what happens there next.
