Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb: 

The stunning new summer story from the bestselling author of Summer at Buttercup Beach. Step into the delightful seaside village of Sandcastle Bay, where you’ll discover golden sand, welcoming smiles and an unforgettable romance… 

Melody Rosewood loves her new home in idyllic Sandcastle Bay. The beautiful little cottage on the edge of Sunshine Beach, with its bright yellow door and view of the sea has captured her heart. And she loves being close by to her family and best friend Tori Graham

Life by the sea is pretty much perfect, there’s just one thing missing… 

Gorgeous Jamie Jackson, with his cheeky grin and adorable puppy, works as a sculptor opposite Melody’s jewellery shop. From the moment he and Melody meet sparks fly. But despite their instant attraction, a past heartache is holding Jamie back. 

As Melody starts to make a life for herself in the close-knit, quirky seaside community, she realises Jamie could be the one for her. But as the two of them take a chance on romance, it’s one dating disaster after another. Are they destined to always be just good friends? 

Or will Melody finally find her happily-ever-after in Sandcastle Bay? 

A perfect, feel-good summer read that will make you want to escape to the beach for a romantic day in the sun. 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*

 We are back in Sandcastle Bay and I couldn't be happier! I was hoping for Melody to get her own story told and here we are...

I loved following both Melody and Jamie, because they had instant attraction and the sparks between them were intense. The past is holding Jamie back though, it's hard for him to commit to a relationship again. 

We also got to catch up with some familiar characters again, like Tori and Aiden, which was lovely. I love this community of people and Sandcastle Bay is just the perfect place. I absolutely adore Holly Martin's descriptive and detailed writing. She takes you right into a story and makes it magical and unique. 

Melody and Jamie share some special moments and Holly Martin captured them beautifully. It's full of emotions, humor and love. 

Holly Martin has a real gift of creating these wonderful places you never want to leave again. Her writing is passionate and authentic. This is a definite must read!!!
