The Holiday Cottage by the Sea - by Holly Martin

Original Cover

The blurb: 

The perfect place to fall in love this summer… 

Tori Graham is in need of a holiday. Trying to piece her heart back together after losing the love of her life, she escapes to Blossom Cottage, with its picturesque views of the sea. And plans to spend the summer in gorgeous Sandcastle Bay, where her best friend Melody Rosewood lives. 

Tori’s not expecting her summer by the beach to be eventful, until she meets handsome and mysterious Aidan Jackson… 

Aidan looks after the holiday cottage Tori is staying in. Healing from past hurts, he wants to avoid any further chance of heartache. But could this newcomer be the breath of fresh air he needs? 

Finding herself embracing life in the coastal community, Tori starts to fall in love with Sandcastle Bay and its welcoming cast of residents. But that’s not all she begins to fall for, as Tori is swept away by Aidan’s genuine heart and mischievous sense of humour. The attraction between them is undeniable, but will a simple holiday romance be enough? 

As Tori’s stay in Sandcastle Bay comes to an end she has a tough decision to make…. Has her heart found a new place to call home? 

A joyously romantic summer read that will make you laugh, cry and fall in love. If you enjoy reading Sarah Morgan, Jenny Oliver and Lucy Diamond this book is for you.

My Opinion:

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

Tori Graham is on the way to something new in her life. Her heart was broken after losing the love of her life. Far away from London, she goes to Blossom Cottage. She is excited to spend the summer in Sandcastle Bay and see her best friend Melody again. 

Aidan Jackson looks after the cottage and their chemistry is undeniable from the start
She warms up to this lovely community quickly and spends a lot of time with the people.

Well, and there is Agatha, who predicts her getting married to Aidan from the beginning. This doesn't make things easier, especially when the two of them get closer. I loved the two of them together, the way they talked to each other and they just shared some cute and intense moments. Holly Martin captured that beautifully in her writing. 

Then there is their past as well. Aidan was left by his fianc
é and Tori's last love died. Matthew actually plays a very important role in this story as well. 

I absolutely adored all the characters in this book. They are all so unique and different from each other and I liked the way they interacted with each other. Such a great bunch of people, always there for each other and so much fun to follow around. I hope we will hear more of some of them soon ;).

Sandcastle Bay sounds like a lovely and idyllic place, please take me there!

This is such a feel good book. It's full of love, passion, romance, family, friendship and humour! LOVE!!!
