    A real joy to read

    This was a lovely read about a small town on the coast in Cornwall. THe heroine, Marina, has had to rebuild her life after her somewhat unsatisfactory husband died while fishing. She dedicated herself to building up a local watch system to make sure that there will be more of a chance to save those who go out into the dangerous currents there. She’s lonely, but she has friends and a purpose. Into this village comes her cousin, Tiff, who lost her journalism career because she trusted a slimey boyfriend. There are two reserved men who are attracted to these two cousins. One, Dirk, nicknamed “Dirk and Stormy,” has fled personal disasters in London to come to this Cornish village. And he and Tiff are fighting their attraction to each other. And Marina is attracted to Lachlan, a mysterious loner from Scotland. He has his own personal demons that he needs to overcome in order to build something with Marina. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters. There was a little bit of a twist near the end that wasn’t all that surprising. But I still really enjoyed it. It made me want to visit the Cornish coast and meet these lovely people. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book that I received from Netgalley; however, the opinions are my own and I did not receive any compensation for my review.

    Entertaining & Enjoyable!

    What could be better in these times of lockdown than a virtual trip to Cornwall, one of the most visited counties? Marina hasn't had her troubles to seek; seven years ago her husband set out fishing in his kayak and never returned. The wrecked kayak was found, but never Nate. She has been faithful to his memory, but seven years is a long time - and Lachlan has appeared in the town. Cousin Tiff was a London journalist but, thanks to her ex-boyfriend, her life has crashed and burned in the city so she swears off men and heads to Porthmellow to stay with Marina and get her life back. But she didn't bargain for meeting dark and brooding Dirk . . . Oh, how lovely it is to be back in Porthmellow again. With some new characters in a different area of the town to concentrate on, it's rewarding to come across those from the previous two novels popping up. There is a real community feel to these novels, and Phillipa Ashley deserves all the credit for conjuring up such a fantastic place and transferring it all to the page so successfully. A wonderful tale with lots of different elements which is both entertaining and enjoyable and, whilst this is a stand-alone read, I would recommend reading the whole series - they're too good to miss! Absolutely a five star read.

    An OK book

    This was an okay romance story. It didn’t move me and I just couldn’t get into the characters. I wanted to feel bad for them but I found it all just too predictable, even the twist I was waiting for. Many others may enjoy it but all that I found I liked was the setting. It sounded breathtaking and beautiful yet dangerous as the sea can be. There was some humour in it and I enjoyed those parts but the rest of the book was just spent waiting for them to realize they were meant for each other. In my opinion it needed either more humour or more seriousness, it was caught in the middle so I can’t really label it. Sorry that I didn’t enjoy it but perhaps others will

    DNF at 43%, too slow

    DNF at 43%. I was enjoying this to start with but then it just kind of ran out of steam, too cute, too predictable, too slow. Maybe in a different time or a different mood I could have enjoyed this but I put this down and just couldn't summon up the enthusiasm to pick it up again. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
