Alyssa is a former nurse and after experiencing a traumatic event, she decides she needs a fresh start. She arrives in Heaven’s Cove and gets a job giving tours to the visitors.  Alyssa befriends Magda an elderly resident of Heaven’s Cove.  Magda confides in Alyssa that she has been secretly in love with a man named Stan.  Alyssa wants to find Stan so that she can bring the two of them together.  But when Alyssa meets Stan’s son Jack, her idea of bringing Stan and Magda together, doesn’t exactly go as planned.  Jack is recently divorced so when he first meets Alyssa, he isn’t exactly the nicest guy.  But as time goes on and they spend time together he begins to enjoy her company.  Alyssa finds an old map of Heaven’s Cove and the map tells a tale of a couple that gave up everything for love.  She decides to tell the story to Magda and Stan in an effort to bring them together.  

The Path to the Last House Before the Sea by Liz Eeles was an absolutely amazing escape.  I loved the relationships of the Magda, Stan, Jack and Alyssa, they were easy to love and they immediately felt like family.  I love stories of new beginnings and second chances and this story delivered on all levels.  The plot twist and turns make this an unputdownable read.  This is book five of the Heaven’s Cove Series, it can be read as a stand-alone but my suggestion is to read the series in its entirety.  It is fabulous and I highly recommend it.

Alyssa carefully holds the delicate paper map and looks down at the cottages and winding streets of the village by the shore. She came to Heaven’s Cove for a fresh start. But will the pathways on the map lead her to an old secret? 

Fleeing from a heartbreaking mistake, all former nurse 
Alyssa wants is to focus on her new job giving tours of Heaven’s Cove to visitors and sharing the myths and legends of this beautiful place. Nobody needs to know the real reason she came to the village…

Over cups of tea with elderly resident 
Magda she soon makes a friend who is alone in the world too. For decades, Magda has been secretly in love with her best friend Stan. Desperate to return Magda’s kindness, Alyssa is eager to bring these two lost souls together. But meeting Stan’s tall, handsome son Jack scuppers her plans.

Dedicated to caring for Stan, Jack says Alyssa’s focus on legends keeps the village in the past. But when Alyssa finds an old map revealing the true story of a Heaven’s Cove couple who sacrificed everything for love, she’s sure the romantic tale could bring Stan and Magda together… and although digging up old secrets soon ruffles feathers in the village, with Jack and Alyssa growing close, she can’t help but think she might find happiness after all.

But will Alyssa ever be able to open up about her own past? 
Or will the truth tear them apart?


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.
