Nessa is a single mum, and she has inherited a stone cottage from her grandmother.  The cottage isn’t in the best condition and it needs a lot of work. The walls are crumbling and the inside needs some care as well.  This could be the perfect home for her and her daughter Lily, and the small quaint village of Heaven’s Cove would be perfect for them.  Soon Gabriel Gantwich arrives at the door and hands Nessa papers claiming his father’s company owns the house and their plans to knock it down.  Nessa is furious and has to complete all the renovations of the cottage within thirty days.  Gabriel is not any easy person to get along with and they argue over every detail.  But then Nessa’s life changes in an instant when she receives a phone call about Lily.  Nessa and Gabriel must decide what is most important, preserving Nessa’s family history or Lily’s future.

I was so excited to be returning to Heaven’s Cove.  This tiny picturesque village is such a wonderful escape.  I love the way the author paints such a vivid description of the amazing Heaven’s Cove.  This story was captivating, heart-warming, and heart breaking.  I found this story to be inspirational, uplifting and utterly delightful.  I cried from the very beginning which kept me absolutely hooked. I loved the flow of the story and it had me flying through the pages.  I felt a personal connection to the believable characters in this story, and I felt the entire story was well thought out, progressed perfectly and the ending was very satisfying.  This book was an amazing addition to the series, and I definitely recommend it.

Thank you Liz Eeles for such a wonderful and heart-warming story.  This was such a wonderful escape.  I loved the series and I highly recommend it.

Tears trickling down her cheeks, she recognises her grandmother’s writing scrawled across the manila envelope. Inside is an engraved key that sits heavy in her hand. Will the tumbledown cottage be the start of a new life – or will it tear her life apart?

With her back to the sparkling sea, single mum 
Nessa stands in the doorway of the stone cottage her grandmother left behind. If she can just fix up the crumbling walls and make the empty hearth cosy again, it will be the perfect home for her little daughter Lily – and their only option if they want to stay in the village of Heaven’s Cove. But a rap on the door soon shatters her plans…

Gabriel Gantwich has a smile on his handsome face, the papers he’s clutching say his father’s company owns the house. They plan to knock it down, destroying Nessa’s last link to her family history – and Lily’s last hope for a home in Heaven’s Cove.

Reeling, Nessa is furious that an outsider could take away her child’s future. She has just thirty days to renovate the cottage – and prove it’s hers. As she and Gabriel clash over every detail, Nessa barely notices that even though they argue, their talks are fuelled by the same passion. And beneath his tough exterior, Gabriel appreciates the beauty of the sunset bathing the clifftop cottage in soft pink light as much as she does…

But one stormy night, Nessa gets a desperate phone call about Lily. Forced to choose between her family’s past and her daughter’s future, 
will she end up losing everything? Or will Gabriel finally realise what truly matters, and help Nessa make this beautiful place a home?


Liz began her writing career as a journalist and press officer before deciding that she’d rather have the freedom of making things up as a novelist. 

Being short-listed in the Corvus ‘Love at First Write’ competition and the Novelicious search for a new women’s fiction star gave Liz the push she needed to keep putting pen to paper …. and ‘Annie’s Holiday by the Sea’ (her first published novel) is the result. 

Liz lives on the South Coast with her family and, when she’s not writing, likes to spend time walking by the sea, and trying to meditate. Her ambition is to be serene one day …. she’s still got a long way to go.
