    Warm and funny

    Loved the story and the characters, setting and the place. It was an easy book to get lost in.

    A very pleasant story.

    My Rating: 4.5 Stars Madison Skylar truly has a chance to come home. That home is Sunflower Island at the Sunshine Hideaway. This could be the second chance she needs. More than that, she just might have a second chance with Connor Robertson. Madison has always been free and open, but returning home just might give her a chance at happiness with Connor. Meanwhile, with his help, and that of another old friend, Amy Walters, they work hard at restoring the Hideaway retreat. Madison's aunt and uncle own the retreat but are away on vacation. She does what she can to restore it to its former glory, and beyond. The only hardship Madison has while working with Connor, who works hard as a builder, is fighting the attraction she has to him. Connor is looking for something too, and perhaps he has found it in Madison, if only she can let her wanderlust go. After reading a few psychological thrillers lately, it was a real boon to read such a pleasant story. Not only did I just love Madison, Connor was a terrific character, a man who truly deserved to be loved. Madison is just so good for Connor and I loved watching their relationship grow. I also enjoyed characters such as Amy, Dee and Jesse. I really enjoyed this book by Donna Ashcroft. It was a delightful read. On a very personal note: I read at least a book a day, most days two. This book, however, took much longer due to some serious issues. Admittedly, at first I bemoaned the length of time it took to read it, but every time I reopened it, it really was like coming home. It is nice to read a book that brings real comfort. I look forward to reading much more from this author. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Sweet romance

    Three and a half stars. Madison is an orphan, following her parents' deaths she lived with her aunt and uncle on Sunflower Island but she has a fear of overstaying her welcome which has led her to a peripatetic life travelling the world working in bars and as a yoga instructor. But now she has decided to return to the one place that feels like home and family. When Madison arrives on the island she runs straight into her childhood crush, Connor, as usual he seems to regard her with contempt even though he has been press-ganged into driving her from the ferry to her aunt's guesthouse the Sunshine Hideaway. When Madison arrives she finds her uncle and aunt have gone on a cruise, the hotel is a bit run down, there is only one guest and Connor has been employed to revamp the guesthouse, little does Madison know that her aunt and uncle are planning to sell the guesthouse. Madison throws herself into various schemes to improve the guesthouse, including yoga classes and walking tours as she tries to get closer to Connor. But can a homebody like Connor and a free spirit like Madison ever overcome the spectre of their pasts and find true love? I enjoyed this novel but I felt it dragged a little in the middle, too much minutiae of walks along the shore and pub quizzes and painting and not enough interactions between characters. Nevertheless, this was an enjoyable romance.
