Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Really enjoyed this lovely book – Autumn Dreams at Mermaid’s Point by Sarah Bennett

When her dreams of young love were cruelly shattered, Nerissa Morgan found it hard to move on. Now, at forty-three, everyone around her is enjoying life while she’s just going through the motions. With her boss retiring and rumours of a new doctor coming in to take over the practice she manages, change is coming, whether she’s ready for it or not.

Following the death of his beloved wife, Tom Nelson buried himself in work at his busy inner-London GP practice. When his teenage children find themselves in trouble at school, he realises he’s completely lost touch with them. Desperate to reconnect before it’s too late, he whisks his family away to the pretty seaside village of Mermaid’s Point determined to make a fresh start.

But all is not as idyllic as it seems. With his predecessor reluctant to let go of the reins and the children as distant as ever, the last thing Tom needs is an undeniable attraction to the woman he unexpectedly finds himself sharing a roof with…

Warm, escapist, feel-good and altogether brilliant story-telling from bestselling author Sarah Bennett. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley and Milly Johnson.

My Review:

Thanks to Boldwood Books and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this book, here's my honest review:
So happy to return to visit Mermaid's Point again
This time in Autumn, with sunshine and rain.
It's a story of families, grief and pain,
Learning to open up to loved again.

Tom Nelson is a GP and a widower, too
With two children who're also grieving, unsure what to do,
He's wanting to get away from London to make a fresh start
To reconnect with his children who are dear to his heart.
Moving to Mermaid's Point could prove to be
The chance for a different life, living by the sea.

Nerissa is the Doc's housekeeper and she fears
Her job and home will go, too, if so she'll end in tears.
She's been alone for decades after her love died
Never given others a chance, perhaps its time she tried?
The story is about relationships, grief and life
Learning to love and get on, even in times of strife.

I really enjoyed reading this delightful book
And hope that this will tempt you to also take a look.
Mermaid's Point is such a lovely place to stay
The sort that you dream of going to live one day.
There's a great sense of community, family and romance
In this enchanting story that I hope you'll give a chance.
