Summer at Rose Island by Holly Martin

Fall in love with the gorgeous seaside town of White Cliff Bay this summer and enjoy long sunny days, beautiful beaches and… a little romance. 

Darcy Davenport is ready for a fresh start. Determined to leave a string of disastrous jobs and relationships behind her, she can’t wait to explore White Cliff Bay and meet the locals. 

When Darcy swims in the crystal clear waters of the bay, she discovers the charming Rose Island Lighthouse. But it’s not just the beautiful building that she finds so intriguing… 

Riley Eddison doesn’t want change. Desperate to escape the memories of his past, he lives a life of solitude in the lighthouse. Yet he can’t help but notice the gorgeous woman who swims out to his island one day. 

Darcy is drawn to the mysterious and sexy Riley, but when it seems the town is trying to demolish his home, she soon finds herself having to pick sides. 

She’s fallen in love with White Cliff Bay. But is that all Darcy’s fallen for? 

Pull up a deck chair, sink back with a bowl of strawberry ice cream and pick up the summer read you won’t be able to put down.

Hey! Heres' my review.

I loved going back to visit Whitecliff Bay in the Summer. I loved the first two Christmassy winter stories in the series and was glad to find that White Cliff Bay is just as much fun in the Summer. You don't need to have read the first two books to enjoy this one. 

The other day I found myself discussing sharks with a grade three student. "A friend of mine's favourite shark is the Angel shark," I told him. It's only as I sat down now to write this review that it occurred to me that this friend I told him about is actually a fictional character from this book. Well, that's how much I liked Darcy, I forgot she wasn't real. 

I was swept away by the romance. I trusted Holly to give me the happily ever after I needed, but at times, I wasn't sure how she was going to do it. Plenty of tension to keep me turning the pages. 

I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
