Kitty Roberts is thirty years old and very happy with her life and in love with her boyfriend who also happens to be her best friend.  She is searching for a house for the two of them, and to her surprise her boyfriend breaks up with her.  She is devastated by the break up and decides to return to the beautiful and tranquil village by the sea.  She spent summer vacations there as a child.  Kitty is happy to be back at Pennystrand Village to rest and recover from heartbreak.  She loves her long walks on the beach and watching the sunsets.  She meets a few new friends including professional surfer Cory Hudson.  Kitty begins to allow herself to open up to Cory about her past,  The more time they spend together the closer they become.  Kitty isn’t quite ready to completely give her heart away just yet, especially when Cory tells her that his time in Pennystrand Village is almost over.  

This was such a wonderful feel-good cozy romance.  I loved the description of Pennystrand Village.  It sounded like an amazing place to go to “get away from it all.”  With the house being so close to the sea, it makes for a great escape. The storyline is engaging with believable and captivating characters.  This summer romance has all the feels, full of hope and inspiration.  This wonderful read is a must for anyone that needs to lift their spirit and fill their heart.  It is a rapid read because the flow of the story is perfect which makes it impossible to put down.  I recommend this must read book.

Thank you Tracy Rees  for such an amazing escape. It is exactly what I needed.  I absolutely loved everything about this book and I highly recommend it.

The cottage gate swings open to reveal the inky-blue sea and the sandy cove beyond. It’s exactly how Kitty imagined it, except she didn’t expect to be standing here alone…

Thirty-year-old Kitty Roberts spends her days searching for the perfect home for two… until her boyfriend, the only man she’s ever loved, dumps her. Devastated to lose not only her first love but her best friend too, she flees to the tiny seaside village where she spent carefree summers as a child, before her family fell apart.

At first, Kitty’s escape proves to be exactly what she needs – golden sunsets over warm, sandy beaches, lovably eccentric new neighbours and even a blush-inducing run-in with 
Cory Hudson, a handsome, professional surfer with a heart-stopping smile.

But just as Kitty feels herself beginning to heal and allows herself to open up to Cory, he reveals that his time in the seaside village is nearly up. What’s more, some surprising reactions to Kitty in town make her wonder if her connection to this place might go deeper than she thought.

It seems there’s a secret in her family’s past that is about to turn Kitty’s life on its head once more… 
Is she ready for the truth? And will it bring her and Cory closer together, or drive them apart?
