Hannah Turner loves Sand Dollar Cove it has always made her feel at home, she finds comfort and solitude when she is there.  Sand Dollar Cove holds many memories of her past, with all the familiar places where she and her father would spend time together.  Her favorite place of all is the old, rundown cottage.  The cottage is going to be torn down, and all of the wonderful memories there will be demolished.  While clearing out the cottage in preparation of the cottage being torn down, she discovers a box of postcards.  She reads through the postcards she realizes that she isn’t the only one with fond memories of the cottage.  It breaks her heart to think about all the memories that will be lost forever once the cottage is demolished.

Postcards from the Cove written by author Jennifer Bardsley is a  wonderful and heart-warming novel.  Bardsley is a new author to me and I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style.  If you want to be transported to the beautiful shores of Sand Dollar Cove, this book will do just that.  The author does a great job of describing the sights, sounds and scents of the Cove, and you can feel the sand in between your toes.  This fast paced read hit all the feels and I really liked Hannah and Guy’s story.  This story tugged at my heartstrings from the first page to the last.  I am really excited about this new series and I can’t wait to dive in to Mary’s story.  I highly recommend this book.

The little cottage sits atop the cove’s rugged cliffs, with its whitewashed walls and views of the deep blue sea. When Hannah discovers a jar of timeworn postcards hidden inside, will they lead to the fresh start she’s longing for? 

Hannah Turner has always lived in the historic and beautiful seaside resort of Sand Dollar Cove. Now grieving the loss of her father, Hannah finds comfort in the places that remind her of him, including one of the resort’s oldest cottages. Heartbroken that it’s due to be knocked down—taking her memories with it—Hannah’s heart leaps when she finds the old postcards concealed within.

Reading “I still believe in our happily ever after” on one of the cards, Hannah feels a pang for the happy ending her father never had. She can’t bear someone else’s precious memories being destroyed, so she traces the postcards’ owner to New York and sends them off—inspired by her discovery to finally seize the day.

After watching 
Guy—the resort’s handsome new trainer—charming their older guests, Hannah’s new attitude pushes her to give dating a chance for once. Hannah can’t resist gazing into Guy’s blue eyes as she shows him the delights of the cove. But just as she’s about to let him into her heart, she is stunned to find one of the postcards in Guy’s bag. Is Guy somehow connected to them? Is this why he came to town in the first place?

Hannah is devastated that Guy is hiding something, but can she keep her heart open to love? And when the postcards reveal a surprising link between Hannah and Guy’s pasts, 
will the truth bind them together or tear them apart for good?
