Coming Home to Merriment Bay Part 3 Christmas by Emily Harvale #Review
Part Three of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.
Cat and Kyra have finally traced the man in the photo they found in Viola’s trunk – thanks to Amias. But Bailey Mitchell lives thousands of miles away and is almost ninety-eight, so meeting him in person is never going to happen. Which is just as well. Exchanging Christmas cards and chatting on social media leads to revelations Cat had not expected.
At least Christmas is looking promising. It may be freezing outside but things have definitely thawed between Cat and her mum, Mary. They’re actually getting on, especially now that Mary is dating Jeremy Stone, the builder working on Viola’s house.
Cat’s also hopeful that Viola’s situation may improve. And when a surprise visitor brings more than just well wishes, Cat’s Christmas takes a delightful turn.
With the festivities in full swing, and snow falling on Merriment Bay, the future’s looking bright. Christmas is a time for miracles and Cat believes she may get one of her own this year if she’s prepared to put the past behind her and open her heart to Love once more.
This is Part Two of a new, four-part serial. The other three parts are:
Coming Home to Merriment Bay - Part One:The Reunion
Coming Home to Merriment Bay - Part Two: Sparks Fly
Coming Home to Merriment Bay - Part Three: Christmas
The Merriment Bay series is interconnected to Emily's Wyntersleap series. Each series can be read alone, but several characters appear in both series.
We are now half way through the story and the characters are well established and keeping my attention. Cat's situation gets more involved with the addition of some new friends and it looks as though tehre may be some answers coming about some of those secrets from the past, This third instalment hasn't disappointed and I am still loving the Merriment Bay setting and community.
I particularly love how Cat's relationship with her mother moves on and they seem to be reaching more of an understanding. Family ties are very important in this series and key to understanding some of the characters. I can't wait for the final part in the story to see if my hunches are going to be proved right. This is feelgood reading at its best.
In short: Family ties deepen.
