    Wonderful story with endearing characters.

    My rating: 4.5 Stars Tilly is a woman without a job. But, she certainly has a passion for interior designing. Currently she is renovating at the café in the picturesque sea town of Seashell Cove and is under all sorts of pressure. Meanwhile she runs into Seth Donovan, former race car driver. She manage to save his young son and he is indebted to her. On the home front, Tilly is dating Rufus. At thirty years of age, she truly wonders if this could possibly be her first "real relationship". Also, Tilly's sister, Bridget, and little niece are now living back at home. Tilly learns very quickly that although Simon really wants to repay her for saving his son, that she herself has some saving to do. What she proposes to do to help Simon is genuinely kind, even if it means the man who possibly may have snagged her heart might never, ever be hers. All the while, Simon likes Tilly very much. However, he must contend with his role as a father and with his overbearing mother. The relationships explored in this book are warm and endearing. We are privy to the difficulties that fatherhood brings to Simon and why. We also watch the difficult relationship between Tilly and Bridget ride so many waves. With their age difference and circumstances, as well as the fact that Simon is now in both of their lives, there is the firm question as to whether or not the sisters can actually ever become friends. Lastly, the relationship between Tilly and her friends is absolutely wonderful. They have found love and fulfillment in their lives, and watching the three women together is touching and rewarding. The Christmas Café at Seashell Cove is a wonderfully sweet romance story. Both Tilly and Simon are truly endearing characters and I could not help but to be drawn to both of them. There is a lot of angst and pressure as to whether or not Tilly and Simon will ever find a way to each other. The hurdles they face are numerous. Despite this, the story had quite a few humorous moments and I actually found myself giggling more than once. The comic relief in this book was Gwen, the Café owner. What a hoot! On the flip side, there was Felicity, Simon's mother. The tit-for-tat between Tilly and Felicity was quite fun, despite the seriousness of the situation facing Simon and his son. Not only did this story flow really well, but it pulled on my heartstrings. Ultimately, this is happy story with a delightfully happy ending. This is the third in the Seashell Cove series, of which I had the pleasure of reading the second book. Each story, however, does well as a standalone, but certainly do not hesitate to grab up this entire series and find an enjoyable few days devouring each title. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for a honest review.

    Racing driver meets ordinary girl

    This is the third of the Seashell Cove books and by far the funniest. When Tilly, a walking tour leader and a would be interior designer meets Seth a famous, but now retired racing car driver they seem wildly incompatible. But as their meeting is when Tilly saves the life of Jack, Seth's son there is a communality that slowly builds through the book. This book is populated by good people trying to do the right thing and pantomime villain's, of whom Seth's mother and Tilly's teacher boyfriend, are the best by far. Oh No Their Not! Oh Yes They Are! Tilly bests both of them. Hooray! And gets her man. And yes I did laugh out loud, often.
