Summer at Buttercup Beach – by Holly Martin

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Pull up a deck chair and bask in the beautiful sunshine on Buttercup Beach. The sand is warm, the sea is sparkling blue and romance is sizzling in the air… 

For two years Freya Greene has hidden the fact that she’s totally and utterly in love with her best friend Rome Lancaster. It’s not been easy – they work together in his glasswork business, she lives above his workshop and, he’s completely gorgeous. But Rome has never shown any sign of returning those feelings. Until now… 

Lately they’ve shared affectionate touches and words heavy with meaning. Yet Freya knows Rome has a damaged heart. After losing his fiancé in a tragic accident, he’s not allowed himself to fall in love. 

Freya has already had her heart broken by a man who couldn’t let go of a past love. Can she risk it happening again? Rome and Freya have a friendship that could blossom into something more. Are they both brave enough to take that chance? 

My Opinion:

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

It’s always so lovely to be back in a Holly Martin book, because she knows how to create a unique atmosphere. This is book 2 of the Hope Island series, so it’s great to familiar with some characters and settings already.

This story follows Freya Greene, who is in love with her best friend Rome Lancaster. She works for him, which is not always easy. Rome is gorgeous, but he doesn’t seem to return her feelings, until now… And there is also the fact that his fiancé died a few years ago.

As the story develops their feelings for each other get stringer and also Rome realises that she is special. Best friends become lovers and more and that was great to follow. Freya and Rome make a wonderful couple and they are also fab characters. I loved reading about familiar people and the setting around this story is just so lovely.

I was hooked from the first moment and couldn’t put the book down! There is plenty of romance in this book and the storyline is full of twists and turns. This book just gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside and it’s the perfect summer read!
