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.
I love Holly Martin books, they are so easy to read and I end up flying through them. I must admit it did take me a while to get into Summer at Rose Island, I believe this is because I haven't read the first two in the series. Saying this I did really enjoy it once I got into it.
Darcy makes a massive move from her previous life, up sticks and moves to the Cornish town, her parents are already disappointed in her and she feels they always will be, although she is keen to prove them wrong, taking up the position in the council.
Darcy is interested in the lighthouse and more importantly who lives there, she has connections to the town through her aunt and wants to find out more about her life and the area. Through doing this she discovers the romance surrounding the lighthouse and quickly wants to help the residents save it. In doing so she meets Riley, who lives in the lighthouse but he likes to keep himself to himself and wants no input with the rest of the town. This makes Darcy curious and no matter how many times she tells herself she shouldn't be bothering Riley she is like a magnet and gets drawn to him.
Summer at Rose Island is a gorgeous book, it has an amazing setting and Holly Martin tells the story so well, this is perfect for curling up with on a wet day or laying on a sun lounger round by the pool.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
