This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I enjoyed it very much.  I really like this author’s writing style. The characters were very believable and the author draws you into the story. 

Port Lowdy is such a wonderful place that you won’t want to just visit you’ll want to live there.  Tressa Buckland lives a quiet and serene life in Port Lowdy. She loves her life wouldn’t change it for anything. As a journalist at the local newspaper her life is enjoyable and stress-free.  She loves her freedom and independence. But things come to an abrupt halt when the owner of the newspaper is called away for six months. Tressa finds herself in charge. With the mounting list of tasks ahead of her, she needs to hire some help and fast.  So, when Dan Byrne a journalist moves from Ireland to Cornwall, he is hired for the vacant position working for Tressa at the newspaper.  Dan and Tressa couldn’t be more different from each other, but they will have to find a way to work past their differences to make the newspaper a success.  Dan and Tressa find a balance between their work life and private life, and they ultimately discover that they are perfect for each other. 

This was such a fun, great read. Once you visit Port Lowdy you will want to live in this lovely little town. I highly recommend this book, it is a must read.

Love comes when you least expect it...
Tressa Buckland likes her quiet life in Port Lowdy, with its cobbled streets and colourful terraced houses overlooking the sea. Her job at the local paper allows her to pursue her art in her free time, with no one but her tabby cat Ginger Pickles to mind her in Mermaid Terrace. But then the owner of the paper is called away on an emergency, and it's up to Tressa to run the paper for six months. Her first task: find a new part-time job as a journalist.

Dan Byrne is the angriest man in Ireland – or so the readers of his very successful column, 'Dan takes on the world', think. But after a story goes south and he loses his job in Dublin, Dan has no choice but to start afresh. When an opportunity comes up in sleepy Cornwall, Dan and his Golden Retriever Ritchie set off for a new adventure.

For Tressa, Dan's arrival to Port Lowdy changes everything. Tressa tries not to look too deeply at her own life, but Dan sees a story to uncover in absolutely everyone – even her. The two of them couldn't be more different... yet, if they can find a way to work together, they may just breathe new life and joy into this sleepy seaside village.

Finding Love at Mermaid Terrace is a heartwarming new village romance about the power of love and kindness, from the bestselling author of Starting Over at Acorn Cottage.
