    Warm, inviting and HAPPY....

    The Holiday Cottage by the Sea is the perfect vacation read. It’s also the perfect rainy day, curl up on the couch read. It might even be the perfect “read surreptitiously at your desk when you’re supposed to be working read”, but I wouldn’t know about that. Err…. Anyway, the cover of The Holiday Cottage by the Sea proclaims it’s “An utterly gorgeous feel-good romantic comedy”—that glowing promise along with the bright cheerful colors on the cover drew me in…And happily, this lovely story delivered on the promises made by the cover! Filled with a picturesque seaside village setting and well-drawn village residents that are as much a part of the storyline as the main characters, I desperately wanted to plan a trip to visit Sandcastle Bay by the time I was about one-third into the book. The author paints a vivid picture, and I could definitely picture each place she described as I read. Something I noticed relatively quickly--I LIKED these people. They seemed like people I’d want to be friends with. They aren’t perfect, they make mistakes and they stumble, but they’re FUN to be around (or at least to read about!). There is a lot of humor in this book. I caught myself laughing out loud a couple of times and smiling pretty frequently as I read. It seemed to me to be a “happy” book, in that I had warm-fuzzy feelings most of the time I was reading it…that’s not to say it doesn’t have serious or sexy moments, because it absolutely does, but overall…it left me happy. I haven’t read this author before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. As I got into the book, I recognized that we were either getting three love stories in one book (I admit, I did hope for that, as I genuinely wanted each of these pairs to find their happy endings), or we were laying the groundwork for a series…by the end, it was clear this will be a series. But I wasn’t disappointed by that…I look forward to spending more time in Sandcastle Bay. This is a standalone, complete story…but there are a couple other relationships that I suspect we’ll see future books about. And I for one, am happy to have found a new author I am eagerly awaiting new work from! I did receive an ARC in exchange for an honest review...and honestly? I LOVED IT! Off to find more works by this author...

    Lovely book!

    I was promised a gorgeous feel good romantic comedy and did I receive it? Yes! I certainly did. I loved the banter between Tori and Aiden and that put, more than once, a smile on my face. I loved Sandcastle Bay and the way people took care of each other. I loved the romances, some of them still hidden but definitely budding and some clearly already surfacing. Maybe I should say what I did not love? Well, ... nothing!!! It's the first time I read a book from this author but I will not be my last. I am so angry with myself that I did not discover her books a lot sooner. It is summer reading for sure, but the warmth that seeps from the book, will certainly warm your heart in winter as well. When (and not if) you read it, make sure you have some time off, because you will not want to put it down. I did not read about Sandcastle Bay, it felt like I was in Sandcastle Bay. Thank you, Netgalley and Bookouture.
