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

Heartwarming read – Making Waves at River View Cottage by Jennifer Bohnet

My Review:

As her fiftieth birthday draws near
Cassie Lewis decides something is clear,
She has brought up her children and now is her time
Not making the most of her future would be a crime!

Tom and Polly are Cassie's children who
Like their Dad, are competitive sailors, too.
Get ready for plans round the world to solo sail,
Whatever happens, they hope not to fail.

A cruel accident, a burglary and a fire,
And two suitors who they can't help but admire.
There are choices to make, and fears to face
Alongside competing in a gruelling race.

This is a heartwarming read about decisions to make
Deciding what route your life should take,
With friendships, family and romance, too,
Being key to everything all the way through.

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


Cassie Lewis, a widow for over 20 years has begun to realise there must be more to life.

In-between working at the family boatyard in picture perfect Dartmouth and raising two children, she wonders where the years have gone.

Both her children, Tom and Polly, have inherited their father’s love of sailing and currently Tom is preparing for a gruelling round the world race. When an accident forces Tom to pull out, Polly, to Cassie’s horror, insists she is capable of taking his place.

As Polly prepares for the race, Cassie unexpectedly finds herself with two keen and eligible men vying for her love.

With her BIG 5-0 birthday approaching Cassie knows she has some big decisions to make but will the worry over Polly’s safe return, cloud her judgement?
