This is adorable. ADORABLE. 😫😍 You know that feeling where you want to cry and laughs at the same time? That’s this book. You won’t be able to put this down!
1. A brief encounter that could have become so much more…if only everything were different
2. Step-sisters, bitter rivals in every area except one–by unbreakable pact neither will ever steal a man from the other
3. A love triangle that starts out as a mess of secrets and mix-ups, and only gets worse from there
Friendship, family ties, crossed wires and self-discovery, second chances and first impressions
Welcome to Jill Mansell’s blustery seaside world. Once you step inside, you’ll never want to leave!
If you love romantic, upbeat, romantic books, you will love this book. It will have you at turns laughing and crying (sometimes at the same time).
We first meet Clemency rushing to catch her plane and almost missing it (been there, done that!), and sitting next to Sam, who ignores her at first been then there’s this connection between them that is undeniable. However, he is married and talk is where they leave it. Three years later, they meet again when Clemency’s stepsister, Belle, moves back with her new boyfriend–none other than Sam. Things become a bit complicated as there are still feelings between them. I knew from the description that there was going to be a love triangle (my most loathed trope), however, I thought it was very well handled and resolved.
What I loved about Jill Mansell’s writing is the focus on more than just Clemency and Sam and Belle. We got to know the rest of the characters that played a part in this story. I was drawn into this town, and into these characters lives. Mansell is a new favorite author, one whose writing I need to catch up on!
My Rating: 4.5/5 ⭐️
