‘Wow! Every time I pick up a Holly Martin book I devour it within hours… Holly Martin's writing is more than a 5 star rating…’ Goodreads Reviewer
The new book from the bestselling author of Summer at Buttercup Beach. Escape to Sandcastle Bay, where you’ll discover a charming little seaside village brimming with heart-warming friendships, quirky characters and plenty of sunshine.
The perfect place to fall in love this summer…
Tori Graham is in need of a holiday. Trying to piece her heart back together after losing the love of her life, she escapes to Blossom Cottage, with its picturesque views of the sea. And plans to spend the summer in gorgeous Sandcastle Bay, where her best friend Melody Rosewood lives.
Tori’s not expecting her summer by the beach to be eventful, until she meets handsome and mysterious Aidan Jackson…
Aidan looks after the holiday cottage Tori is staying in. Healing from past hurts, he wants to avoid any further chance of heartache. But could this newcomer be the breath of fresh air he needs?
Finding herself embracing life in the coastal community, Tori starts to fall in love with Sandcastle Bay and its welcoming cast of residents. But that’s not all she begins to fall for, as Tori is swept away by Aidan’s genuine heart and mischievous sense of humour. The attraction between them is undeniable, but will a simple holiday romance be enough?
As Tori’s stay in Sandcastle Bay comes to an end she has a tough decision to make…. Has her heart found a new place to call home?
A joyously romantic summer read that will make you laugh, cry and fall in love. If you enjoy reading Sarah Morgan, Jenny Oliver and Lucy Diamond this book is for you.
The Holiday Cottage by the Sea means only one thing – that Holly Martin is back with another cracker of a book. One that is filled with amazing countryside, swoonsome moments and hilarious scenes. If that doesn’t sound appealing enough then let me promise that this is one book that you do not want to miss out on..
While you know where this story is going, I loved being taken on the journey with Tori and Aidan. They both have some hilarious banter that will cause you to giggle. Out loud. Their connection was instantaneous and straight away I could see them as a couple. I was rooting for them. Not only as a couple but also in their harvest of the heartberries. Which, by the way sounded really delicious.
I love reading a Holly Martin book – its like the start of summer is finally real. They are always a joy to read. They make me laugh, cry and swoon over every page.
The Holiday Cottage by the Sea was a fab start to this series, and I cannot wait to meet everyone again.
