Spring at Blueberry Bay – by Holly Martin

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Welcome to beautiful Hope Island where the sea sparkles, the daffodils are blooming and a blossoming romance is just around the corner… 

Bella has always had a sunny outlook and caring nature, despite recently falling on hard times. When she finds a handsome homeless man on her doorstep, her kind heart tells her she must help him. So, she invites Isaac into her cottage and into her life in ways she could never have imagined… 

But Isaac is not what he seems. He’s keeping a huge secret from Bella, yet he never expected to fall for this open, generous and charming woman. 

Bella can’t ignore the chemistry between her and Isaac, but she’s had her trust badly broken in her past. Will she run when she learns the truth about Isaac, or will he be the one man who can help Bella believe in love again? 

A gorgeously romantic and heartwarming story to completely lose yourself in. Perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan, Jane Costello and Miranda Dickinson. 

My Opinion:

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

Time for another treat by Holly Martin. This time she takes us to beautiful Hope Island, can I live there please?!

Bella is a charity event fundraiser, she is very creative, passionate and she has her heart in the right place. She invites homeless Isaac into her house and the sparks between them fly immediately! Their chemistry is unique, the passion and tension between them is a constant element in this book, which is great. It really came through in the writing and that’s really important when it comes to romance.

Isaac however has a secret and when it is revealed in a dramatic way, things get even more powerful. Bella has been hurt in the past, so she needs to learn how to trust again, can she do that with Isaac though?!

I liked how Holly martin included their dogs in the story and she managed to create this exceptional atmosphere full of love, warmth and affection. The way she described Hope Island is on point, it’s vivid and it literally is like dreaming with open eyes.

Bella’s family plays an important part in this story. Her siblings and also some of her friends formed a great group of people to follow around. There were so many characters in this book I could connect to and it was just a pleasure to read about them. Of course Isaac is the perfect book boyfriend. I loved him!

What I liked in this book that Holly Martin really surprised me with certain things in the storyline, I would have not expected some things and even questioned some decisions the characters made, but in the end it all played well together and formed a beautiful story.

Engaging, quirky, heart-warming, funny, wonderful - this is Holly Martin, a real queen when it comes to writing!!!
