Summer at Lavender bay
In my opinion...
I am really delighted that I was asked to join the blog tour for this enjoyable book.
I've been reading lots of psychological thrillers recently, so it was extremely refreshing to turn to this sweet, feel good story.
There are no surprises, I anticipated every twist and turn , but that’s not to say that the characters aren’t well developed, credible and extremely likeable. Eliza is a delight, Jack sounds wonderful and the supporting cast brought colour and humour to the story. The dialogue was extremely realistic and flowed naturally. My only reservation is that at times the language was a bit flowery for my liking, but that's a personal thing.
I hadn’t realised that the book was the second in a series- which is good, as I usually avoid novels that aren't stand alone.
I finished it with a great big smile on my face- exactly what you need on a Friday at this time of year.

Love happens when you least expect it…
When Eliza Barnes said I do’ to her husband all those years ago, she thought that they’d be together forever. Instead, he’s flown to Abu Dhabi to start a new life, and she’s returning to the little seaside town of Lavender Bay. It’s finally time to chase the dreams she’s put on hold for so long, whipping up luxury bath products and organic soaps using local ingredients. Of course, she didn’t expect to meet local farmer, Jack Gilbert, or for him to be quite so gorgeous! So when her husband turns up, she knows she must decide between the man she knows everything about and the man who makes her heart race in ways she’d never imagined before it’s too late Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.
