    Perfect!!

    I love Ms. McClone's stories! She always knows how to bring you into the world of her characters and their lives. This story is sweet, heartbreaking and a beautiful beginning. Josh is an alcoholic trying to work on his sobriety. Hope is an artist who has lost her confidence after a terrible marriage. Reading this story made me feel like a part of their story. Very real and relatable!

    Melissa McClone’s Sweet Beginnings

    What would you do if your present life was completely uprooted?? This thought provoking, uniquely written, sweet romance with creative and interesting characters will give you food for thought. Two people whose lives have fallen apart meet because of an upcoming wedding. Josh Cooper is a sports commentator who is a recovering alcoholic. His company placed him on leave of absence to get his life together. Josh had been a footfall star until he was badly injured. Then his life fell totally apart. Fast women and plenty of alcohol seemed to be he only release from the inability to return to the football field. Commentating did not fill his need to play. Then one day he realized he needed help. Now he has gone almost a year with drinking. Hope Ryan who now works at Indigo Bay Cottages Resort was a talented artist. She lived in New York with her art manager husband until she caught him cheating on her. When she filed for divorce, her ex tore apart their apartment and slashed all her paintings. She left that life behind and returned to Indigo Bay to live with her brother. She has not painted in over two years except for ornaments, tourist and wedding items. Josh and Hope meet in Indigo Bay at the resort. There is undeniable chemistry between the two but Josh needs to finish therapy. They enjoy touring Indigo Bay then go their separate ways. Their meeting was enough to rekindle the spark in Hope’s artistic talents. What will happen next??? This is a heartfelt, emotional read. It shows that everyone needs to abandon their past problems to be able to move into the future. With the right kinds of support available, any one can succeed in finding bright future. A Highly Recommended Read for all!!!

    A Sweet Romance

    Loved this sweet romance of finding love when least expected. Hope is a struggling artist , never wanting to get married again after a nasty divorce when she meets Josh, a sports commentator that is a recovering alcoholic. Both with pasts that they need to overcome to move forward. A friendship that develops into so much more. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet romance, the perfect beach read for a lazy afternoon this summer. Looking forward to reading the other stories that take place in Indigo Bay. I highly recommend.

    Very inspirational!

    Wow! What an inspirational and touching read. I became invested in Josh and Hope’s lives. In their struggles and challenges, past and present. I loved the acceptance and support they gave each other from the beginning. And, of course I loved the romance, too. :) There are so many great lessons about life in this book, including that sometimes you have to focus on yourself, and that’s ok, and good. Loved that! I just loved it all!! If you’ve read "Jenny," from the Beach Brides series, you’ll be excited to see Jenny and Dare again. I love catching up with old friends! You’ll also get a glimpse of Lizzy and Mitch from "Sweet Holiday Wishes." So fun! I received a complimentary copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.
