Sandy Cove is a tiny coastal village in Ireland and Ella Caron is trying to recover.  Ella moved from Paris to Sandy Cove for the quiet and tranquility of the village so that she could grieve the loss of her mother.  She needed space to process her loss and never imagined her mother’s best friend Lucille would move in with her to keep her company.  As Ella spends more time with Lucille she finds herself letting her guard down and laughing more.  Lucille wants to live the rest of her life in Sandy Cove, but when her son Rory arrives he has other plans for Lucille’s life.  But when Rory and Ella build a friendship, Ella can’t help but wonder if Rory is right.  

I thoroughly enjoyed this continuation story in the series.  This sequel was ever bit as good as the first book.  I was so engrossed with this story I didn’t want to put it down.  This feel good escape was exactly what I needed.

Thank you Susanne O’Leary for another wonderful story.  I really enjoyed this story, and felt as if I was transported to Ireland.  The plot was captivating, the characters were relatable, and this story kept me entertained.  This fantastic story is a must read and I highly recommend this book.

An enchanting summer romance set on the gorgeous Irish coast, where fresh starts are made, love beckons and secrets are sure to unfold…

In the tiny village of Sandy Cove in Ireland, Ella Caron is trying to recover. When she moved from Paris to a beautiful coastguard cottage on the sea, she wanted peace and quiet and the space to grieve after her mother’s death. She never imagined that her mother’s eccentric best friend Lucille would insist on moving in to keep her company.

With Lucille by her side, Ella finds herself laughing more than she has in years and it soon becomes clear that Lucille has her own reasons for coming to Sandy Cove: she wants Ella to help her move to her own little cottage by the sea. But then Lucille’s son Rory comes to town and her dream is under threat: he wants her in Tipperary, where she can safely grow old in their family home. Ella admires Lucille’s sense of adventure but she can’t help but wonder if Rory is right. Especially when she sees the rickety old cottage Lucille intends to buy and realises that the real reason she wants to escape could turn Rory’s life upside down.

As Ella and Rory get closer, sharing a moment under the stars that feels meant to be, Ella finds herself caught between the man she is falling for and the loyalty she has to Lucille. Ella knows that she must convince Lucille to tell her family the truth, but it may force them to leave her and Sandy Cove for good…
