Summer at Lavender Bay by Sarah Bennett @Sarahlou_writes @HQDigitalUK #Review

ARC received from publisher via Netgalley.

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.

I have been looking forward to re-visiting Lavender Bay ever since I finished reading the first book in the series and I wasn't disappointed at all. It was so lovely to catch up with both the characters and the setting in yet another wonderful story!

The opening had me rooting for Eliza and I couldn't wait to see her story play out along with hoping she got her happy ever after. I loved the fact that she began to realise her dreams and make them a reality. Along with seeing her character come to life with a wonderful new found confidence in herself. When Eliza meets Jack you instantly see the sparks between the pair but life is never straight forward and easy. I adored this pair and enjoyed all of their interactions. Jack has an air of sadness about him that made me instantly care about his character. Then add in friendships that will not only make you smile but want to eat pizza too!

I started reading one evening and didn't want to leave this story for a moment. I think I say this every time I read a book by Sarah Bennett but she really does have the ability to create such a warm and emotional story. One that will instantly wrap you up all snug, until the very last page. Wonderfully warm and inviting there are friendships, new beginnings and romance in the air at Lavender Bay all waiting to be discovered. I hate to wish time away but I can't wait to read Libby's story.

A captivating summer treat!

Five stars from me!

With thanks to HQ and Netgalley for my copy.

Sarah Bennett has been reading for as long as she can remember. Raised in a family of bookworms, her love affair with books of all genres has culminated in the ultimate Happy Ever After – getting to write her own stories to share with others.

Born and raised in a military family, she is happily married to her own Officer (who is sometimes even A Gentleman). Home is wherever he lays his hat, and life has taught them both that the best family is the one you create from friends as well as relatives.

When not reading or writing, Sarah is a devotee of afternoon naps and sailing the high seas, but only on vessels large enough to accommodate a casino and a choice of restaurants.

Sarah is the author of the Butterfly Cove trilogy, published by HQ Digital UK.
Her new series is set in the beautiful seaside town of Lavender Bay, and will follow the lives of three best friends - Beth, Eliza and Libby.
