Local surfer Nate Bryson plans to leave Conwenna and see the world. He wants to shake off his reputation as a ladies man and start again somewhere new. Before departing, Nate decides to raise funds for the dog rescue home as a way of giving back to the community.
When Nate approaches Zoe to help with the charity event she sees there’s more to him than meets the eye. Nate can’t believe he’s failed to notice the kind and beautiful woman right before him. But can two such different people ever be together, especially if one of them is determined to leave?

Forever At Conwenna Cove is the next instalment of The Conwenna Cove series from Darcie Boleyn and it does nothing but justice for the rest of the series.

Following the owner of the diner, Zoe, the story tells of previous heartbreak and trauma tainting life in the present. Death is hard to come to terms with but when it's someone so close to you the after effects are not only long lasting but change your mindset on several other aspects of life.

Trying to keep in touch with her dog owning past, Zoe volunteers at the greyhound sanctuary and takes the dogs out for walks. Also aiding the greyhounds is Nate, a surfer, who organises a surfing event to raise funds for the charity before heading out of town. 

The classic get the boy before he leaves town never gets old and Darcie Boleyn writes the classic theme in such a way that it is new, fresh and completely magnetic. The past haunts Zoe but when friends accidentally let it slip that Nate is skipping town to travel she decides to act before it's too late.

I loved the scenery with Forever At Conwenna Cove, although I got used to the background when reading the previous Summer At Conwenna Cove. But if you haven't read the previous stories you will still thoroughly enjoy the book as no background knowledge is really needed. 

The story pans out at a good pace with enough detail to really get into the characters' heads. There isn't much fluff and the combination of greyhounds and surfing is not only unique but genius. I would highly recommend Forever At Conwenna Cove to anyone who loves reading Daisy James.   

Exclusive Q & A

1. Do you have a special place where you gather your thoughts and ideas for a new story?

My ideas come at all times of the day and night, so I always have a notebook at the ready! However, when I want to get my thoughts and ideas into some sort of order, for example, by writing a synopsis, I head to my desk in the study and type away on my MacBook Air.

2. How do you decide on a title/s for your books?

Titles are usually a team effort and discussed with my agent, editor and publisher. I’ll make some suggestions, then we’ll agree on the final title.

3. Is there one of your books in particular that you consider the pride of your collection?

Summer at Conwenna Cove marked a changing point for me, as an author and in terms of some big life changes I made, so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

4. What’s the strangest thing you’ve been inspired by?

Inspiration comes from a variety of sources, but one of the funniest (and possibly strangest) happened when I was at university. The woman I lived with had a pet bearded dragon, and one day, her son left the lid loose on the container of live crickets. Of course, they escaped and spread through the house and we were still finding them weeks afterwards. This inspired a scene in my romantic comedy Something Old, Something New.

5. Have you created a character who is the fictional version of you?

All of my characters have elements of me in them, for example, Annie in Something Old, Something New and Eve in Summer at Conwenna Cove but they’re also unique because they have their own thoughts, feelings and quirks, as we all do.

  1. I have been looking for a romance book to get into over the summer whilst I'm away on holiday, and I may just have found it! I am already very intrigued about how the "get the boy before he leaves town" story plays out in this case! Darcie sounds like a very skilful writer! Plus, if she's a dog person I am sold haha! it's really interesting to hear about aspects of publishing such as deciding on a title, I love reading author Q&A's for this very reason! Thank you for sharing this insight into Forever at Conwenna Cove, Katie!


    1. So glad you've enjoyed it Abbey! Darcie is incredibly talented, all her books are definitely worth a lazy afternoon x
