  • Warm read

    This was a lovely and unusual read about Melanie who is encouraged to buy a crumbling beach house with the inheritance she received from her Gram who she has cared for over the last three years. A bet about a darts match brings reluctant contractor Josh to her assistance however he’s desperate to leave the area and wants nothing to do with Melanie’s beach house. The storyline was unusual and the characters well formed, the character of Cole added a really strong dimension, I was amazed at the speed of transformation of the guest house though, sounds impossible by UK standards!

  • Fantastic book

    Yes, this book has romance, but I really loved the secrets that are revealed, which had me flipping the pages to see what was going to be revealed next. This book is centered around Melanie Simpson. Melanie put her life on hold to take care of her grandmother. Gram has now passed away and her last wish is for Melanie to purchase the Ellis House in Rosemary Bay, Florida and turn it into a bed and breakfast. The Ellis House needs a lot of work, but the best guy for the job is leaving to move to New York. No spoilers, so grab your copy and see what happens. I do have to say I’m so glad I got to read this beautiful story. I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • Love this story

    Heart warming story of love, loss, second chances, and starting over. When Melanie's grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, she gave up everything to be with her the last three years of her life. Upon her death, her grandmother made a wish - for Melanie to buy the Ellis House, a run down mansion Melanie remembers walking by as a kid. But Melanie may have taken on more than she can handle. Joshua has had a horrible experience with his recent marriage and divorce, leaving him with a desire to get a whole new life. Determined to leave and start over in NYC, he gets sidetracked by a hurricane. When a bundle of letters is found in the closet of the house, a long mystery starts to unravel. One that will effect the lives of all the people Melanie has grown to love. I loved the story, with relatable characters dealing with real life. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  • Making it through the ups and downs of life.

    When Melanie's Gram, passes away, she leaves Melanie money to buy a crumbling house in Rosemary Bay. When Melanie decided to accept the challenge, she really doesn't know what she has gotten herself into. This story will grip you from the very beginning with Melanie going through her first hurricane., to uncovering secrets, and wondering if secrets are better left buried. Even when life got really rough, or all she could say was, Gram I hope you have this because I don't know what to do, she carried on, trying new things, and moving forward in life. This story has the highs and lows of life, finding things out that you never knew, and finding the connections that makes life complete. I received an ARC from Bookouture through NetGalley.

  • Perfect Beach Read

    Melanie spent the final 3 years of her grandmother’s life being her caregiver full time, so when her grandmother passed away, Melanie is devastated. She is left with a big decision with renovating her grandmothers Florida beach house. What will she find and will she be able to rebuild her life in the way she envisioned? What secrets will she uncover? This heart warming and uplifting book will have you turning the pages to find out Melanie’s fate. I’m a big fan of Jenny Hale’s books as I love that she writes heartwarming and uplifting books that leave you feeling hopeful.
