Review: Summer at Rose Island by Holly Martin

Summer at Rose IslandThe Blurb

Fall in love with the gorgeous seaside town of White Cliff Bay this summer and enjoy long sunny days, beautiful beaches and… a little romance. 

Darcy Davenport is ready for a fresh start. Determined to leave a string of disastrous jobs and relationships behind her, she can’t wait to explore White Cliff Bay and meet the locals.

When Darcy swims in the crystal clear waters of the bay, she discovers the charming Rose Island Lighthouse. But it’s not just the beautiful building that she finds so intriguing…

Riley Eddison doesn’t want change. Desperate to escape the memories of his past, he lives a life of solitude in the lighthouse. Yet he can’t help but notice the gorgeous woman who swims out to his island one day.

Darcy is drawn to the mysterious and sexy Riley, but when it seems the town is trying to demolish his home, she soon finds herself having to pick sides.

She’s fallen in love with White Cliff Bay. But is that all Darcy’s fallen for?

Pull up a deck chair, sink back with a bowl of strawberry ice cream and pick up the summer read you won’t be able to put down.

The Review

Oh wow. Let me tell you, the White Cliff Bay series has been a rollercoaster of emotions. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and yes I’ve whooped with joy. Mostly though, I have fallen in love with a small town and I want to go and live there.

The third book in the White Cliff series – Summer at Rose Island – will be released this week and it has pulled all the right heartstrings. Rose Island is a tranquil place with gorgeous vistas, a beautiful seaside and a rustic lighthouse. It is the kind of village that people dream of living in and that is exactly what happened to Darcy. Darcy spent her summers with her aunty Ginny in Rose Island. As an adult – after a series of disastrous jobs – Darcy relocates to Rose Island and starts to make a big impression; none more so than on Riley Eddison who lives in the lighthouse. Their initial meetings aren’t plain sailing and it takes a few introductions before they stop insulting each other.

You cannot help but be enamoured by Darcy and Riley. They work. They balance each other and they change each other in the best possible way. What is also fabulous about Summer at Rose Island (and I said it about Snowflakes on Silver Cove) is that you are reunited with characters from the previous books and it is like being given a warm hug from the author Holly Martin. I like m books to hug me…this sounded much more normal in my head.

This book series is near on perfect. The characters and stories make your heart swell and sing and I promise you that if you haven’t read them before then once you have you will have a new favourite author in Holly Martin.

Summer at Rose Island by Holly Martin is available from 13th May 2016
