    A perfect book

    When Eve has a serious anxiety attack whilst chairing a meeting at her school, the head teacher is mortified. She decides to take the advice of her friend, and have a well earned break. Life has been hard for Eve. Her husband upped and left, she hasn’t been eating, nor sleeping properly, and she has lost her spark for life. The one place that she knows she can get away from it all is at her Aunt Mary’s home, in Cornwall. However, not everyone is pleased to see her. Jack, who lives in the cottage next door, treats Mary like a mother figure and cares a lot about her. He feels that Eve has let her down badly by ignoring her calls, and now she turns up at her front door wanting to stay. What kind of woman would do that to her Aunt? As time passes can Eve and Jack learn to get along?, especially when they are both carrying so much baggage from their past. It’s time to move on for the both of them. It has been many years since I have stepped foot in Cornwall, by Ms. Boleyn’s descriptions of such a beautiful part of the UK had me visually standing in the heart of this scenic county. All three main characters are incredibly authentic, and their individual personalities shone of the pages. Eve is quite a stubborn woman, one who has tried to deal with her issues by throwing herself into her job, and working all the hours she can. She’s never known how to relax, and take it easy, but if she is to get back to her old self, she needs to learn to. Jack is an ex soldier, and is suffering with an old injury. He works at a shelter for dogs, preferring the company of animals to women, and doesn’t want to ever get romantically involved with a woman again. Mary is such a lovable, ageing woman whose positive attitude to life will make your heart warm. She is one of life’s optimists and can see, and know you better than yourself. She is a fabulous character, and one that I was sad to say goodbye to. She also had the most beautiful home. This is one of those books that at times hits you right in the heart. It is written in a style that hold you captivated to the pages, and drags you into Cownenna Cove and the delights it has to offer, especially cake!! At times it will have you feeling pity for both Eve and Jack. The raw emotions that both of them show will tug at your heart strings. There are also moments that will have you thinking about your own life. A perfect book, that no matter the weather, with always have you basking in the sunshine!

    Easy to read story of life and romance.

    Loved this story. Was a great read with enough ups and down without making it too sad at any time. Loved the characters - all quite realistic. Didn’t want to put it down.

    Lovely Contemporary Romance/Women’s Fiction Story

    Summer at Conwenna Cove is a lovely contemporary romance/women’s fiction story about an over-achieving workaholic who has been pushing herself even harder in an attempt to forget all the recent losses she’s suffered. After a near-complete physical and mental breakdown that leads her to reevaluate her life, she takes leave from her job and heads to the little seaside village of Conwenna Cove in Cornwall to visit a beloved aunt. There she also meets her aunt’s neighbor and tenant, Jack, who stirs her interests in a more romantic direction. Eve is a very relatable character who’s been living life in the fast lane, and just simply needs to slow down. She’s a good person who has lost a lot and hasn’t really given herself time to grieve and find closure, but the magic of Conwenna Cove helps her to find peace. Jack is a former British marine and a veteran of the war in Afghanistan who has found a sense of belonging in Conwenna Cove where he works at a rescue for Greyhounds. He’s very kind, sweet, and sensitive toward both Eve and her aunt. Their romance is definitely a slow-burning one that takes its time developing, starting as a strong friendship before turning into something more, but they fit together well and have a good emotional connection. Although the book deals with some emotional topics, there are several humorous moments to lighten things up as well. My only small complaints are that the story could be a little slow-paced at times, and I thought the characterizations could have gone a bit deeper. Otherwise, though, this was a lovely read that I enjoyed.
