Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

This little island has some big secrets...
Isla's got her dream job as head stylist at the most exclusive salon in Edinburgh. The fact that she's been so single-minded in her career that she's forgotten to have a life has completely passed her by - until disaster strikes.
Out of options, she heads to the remote island of Auchenmor to help out her aunt who is in desperate need of an extra pair of scissors at her salon.
A native to the island, Finn is thirty-five and reality has just hit him hard. His best friends are about to have a baby and everything is changing. When into his life walks Isla ...

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

I recently reviewed part 1 of this book and was really happy when I received the whole book by the publisher. Here is my review of part 1: Wildflower Bay #1 - Review

The story follows Isla, how is a top hair stylist with a very sad past. However, when the book starts it goes all upside down for her. Not having that many options, she decides to help her aunt. She faces a new environment, is in a totally different part of the country, has to deal with her dad, but also meets new people and new possibilities open.

I was so happy to catch up with Isla, because I was actually sad when part 1 was over. The story continues and we learn more about Wildflower Bay, the villagers, Isla herself and handsome Finn.

I really loved reading about Isla and Finn together, they had a bit of a rough start and with knowing that she isn’t going to stay, things got more complicated, also with other characters getting involved.

It was also for Isla to decide what she really wants in life, which is never an easy step. Rachael’s writing captured that in a great way and I was really hooked to Isla’s story.

I love how Rachael described the setting and the surroundings. Her writing style is so warm and vivid and it took me into the story immediately. The storyline flows beautifully, this book is a real pleasure to read.

Isla: Nikki Harlow

Finn: Austin Stowell
