Book Review | Annie's Summer By The Sea by Liz Eeles

Book Review | Annie's Summer By The Sea by Liz Eeles

When Annie Trebarwith unexpectedly inherits Tregavara House, her much-loved family home atop the cliffs of Salt Bay, she begins to wonder: with all the good friends and warm memories she’s made in the village, could it be her forever home? 

Luckily her gorgeous Poldark-lookalike boyfriend, Josh Pasco, has exactly the same idea. High on the Cornish cliffs he gets down on one knee, and Annie has everything she’s ever dreamed of.

But when a summer storm causes catastrophic damage to the beautiful but aging house, Annie and Josh are faced with tumbling tiles and a massive repair bill – and a roof that’s leaked straight onto her wedding gown…

Can the Salt Bay community save Annie’s house and her wedding – and give Annie the happy-ever-after she’s always wanted?

A big Blooming Fiction warm welcome to Liz Eeles on her first feature on the blog feed. Once again I'm shamed to admit that I was instantly attracted to Annie's Summer By The Sea by the vibrant and inviting cover. It's something I'm working ... though not very successfully.

The book cover of Annie's Summer By The Sea doesn't do the story justice as there is so much heart and soul poured into the plot. 

Even from the off there are family issues which ring home and create a warm yet tentative atmosphere in the characters' lives. Watching the demise of a family member is tough but Eeles' characters pull together and get through the events as one unit. 

The delicious heart throb Josh is a dream boat in anyone's book. I hoped there was some underlying secret or goings on to add more texture to the already seemingly perfect relationship with him and Annie but as it turned out he really is just a nice guy.  

Good old mother nature also makes a hefty appearance as she attempts to ruin Annie's wedding day and damage to Tregavara House seems too much to handle. But in the much loved community spirit element of fiction, the characters pull together to defeat the odds.

I was delighted for the opportunity to read Annie's Summer By The Sea and looking back over the read there isn't anything that I would change or omit for a better read. This book has been more than enough to put Liz Eeles on my author to watch radar.
