Ellie McTavish unexpectedly receives a horrible diagnosis, and her only option for surviving is surgery. The risky surgery is a success and she is recovering at home.  She bids on a vintage 80’s airstream motorhome and to her surprise she wins.  Ellie convinces her best friend Fiona to go on a road trip to pick up her winnings.  On the way there, they break down, and are stranded just outside the picturesque village of Magpie Cove in Cornwall. They have no choice but to wait for the local mechanic Mark to fix their vehicle so they can be on their way.  As Ellie spends time in Magpie Cove she falls in love with the people that live there and everything about Cornwall.  It is exactly the place she needed to be to recover physically and emotionally and to realize she has her whole beautiful life still ahead of her.

This gorgeous, uplifting and delightful story is an absolute must read.   It is filled with wonderful characters and the sights and sounds of Cornwall will unfold in your mind’s eye.  I laughed, I cried, I was heartbroken and inspired.   This was such a wonderful escape to Cornwall and at a much needed time.  I could feel the sun on my face, the sand in my toes and the wind in my hair.  I could hear the waves lapping against the beach.   I thoroughly enjoyed returning to Magpie Cove, and I found this book to be unputdownable. This author does such a wonderful job describing Magpie Cove as such an amazing and beautiful place, you will want to pack up and move today.  This phenomenal story is one that is not to be passed up by anyone, and will have you dreaming of Magpie Cove.  I love, love, love this series and I highly recommend it. 

Thank you Kennedy Kerr for such a wonderful addition to this amazing series.  This was such a wonderful escape.  I loved the storyline and I highly recommend it.

The cove itself was small, but beautiful, filled with fine golden sand. Ellie had always heard that Cornwall was romantic, and now she could see why. There was something wild and magical about the turquoise blue sea and the grey-black cliffs that hinted at the shadows of caves under the tide line. Shading her eyes from the sun, Ellie wondered if it would be enough to make her forget what had brought her here…

Ellie McTavish’s world turns upside down when a deadly diagnosis comes out of nowhere. Feeling adrift as she recovers from life-saving surgery at home, she impulsively bids on a vintage caravan, only to discover the next day that she’s won it. So she grabs her friend Fee and takes it on an impromptu road trip… well, that’s the plan, until it breaks down outside the tiny village of Magpie Cove in Cornwall.

Unexpectedly stranded, the two women don’t have much choice but to stay there until it’s fixed. At least the local mechanic, 
Mark, is distractingly handsome. Not that Ellie would ever act on her feelings – after the surgery she’s not sure she’ll ever feel beautiful again. If only she’d stop running into him everywhere in town…

As Ellie settles into life in Magpie Cove – even daring to swim in the icy sea with a group of local women each morning – she can feel herself slowly healing. But just as she begins to let herself grow closer to Mark, a midnight attack on her rented beach house once more puts Ellie’s fragile courage to the test. Sometimes the deepest scars are on the inside – will Magpie Cove be able to mend Ellie once and for all?
