Wedding Bells in Merriment Bay
Merriment Bay series – Book 3
Change is in the air as wedding bells ring out in Merriment Bay
Cat’s determined to propose to Amias. Well, it is a leap year so it’s fine for women to do the asking, and besides, it took him eighteen years to tell her how he felt. She’s not going to wait for him to pop the question. All she needs to do is find the perfect time and place.
Kyra’s fallen for Francis Raine, who seems happy to flirt and exchange banter but hasn’t actually asked her out. Does he reciprocate her feelings, or is he this way with every girl he meets? There’s only one way to find out. She’ll ask him on a date … as soon as he returns to Merriment Bay.
Mary’s leaving Devon Villa after a lifetime spent in the house. She’s never lived alone so it’s both an exciting and a terrifying prospect. But change is good, isn’t it? Perhaps it’s time she tried a few other new things too.
The Devon women want to move on to the next chapters in their lives. And as Viola Devon used to say before she died, “The only one who can write your own life story as you want it, is you.” Although Viola’s didn’t work out too well. Will Cat, Kyra, and Mary have better luck with theirs?
Whilst this story involves the weddings at both Wyntersleap and Merriment Bay and could well be the fabulous finale for both series, I really hope there will be more to come! This is the third book in the Merriment Bay series which runs alongside the Wyntersleap series with several events and characters involved in both.
There have been several engagements and quick weddings planned by some of the characters but that just makes things worse for Cat who is eager to marry her teen love, Amias but he doesn’t seem to have any desire to pop the question despite it taking eighteen years for them to get together. . . . It’ll take an intervention by Kyra to help sort out their miscommunications and make them aware of how the other is feeling!
Mind you, Kyra isn’t having much joy at convincing Francis Raine that their ten year age gap doesn’t mean they can’t date, though she’s hoping her latest tactics will help win him over . . . . As for Mary Devon, she’s determined not to go into her lifelong home, Devon Villa, after the skeletal remains had been uncovered in the cellar there. She’s determined to make a fresh start, but what will that involve?
There are so many questions answered in this heartwarming, very romantic read. It is one of those brilliant reads that really do leave you feeling good and with a huge smile on your face. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this and the other books in both these series and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them all to anyone who enjoys reading stories with well developed characters who become like familiar friends you are catching up with. The plots threads are skilfully woven together to create an intricate, beautiful whole that captures your attention and keeps you riveted to the very end. As I’ve already said, I really hope there will be more stories in this series in future . . . . I still want things to work out for Jo, I want to know more about Kyra and Francis and would love to go on that planned holiday with the Devon family and discover what Mary gets up to – and so much more, including news about all the expected babies! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that there will be more to come and again highly recommend you catch up on all that already has happened.
