Summer at Blue Sands Cove by CP Ward #Review #GloriousSummerBook1


Today I am featuring CP Ward's latest novel, Summer at Blue Sands Cove which is the first book in the Glorious Summer series.

Tired of the city, Grace Clelland returns to Blue Sands, the quiet Cornish seaside village where she grew up. There she will meet old flames and old friends, rekindle old loves and ignite new ones in a novel that will have you dreaming of the soft crash of the waves on the shore, the feel of sand between your toes, overloaded ice-creams and smoky beach barbeques.

 My Thoughts

Starting over and taking a second chance runs through this contemporary romance. Grace has returned to the seaside village where she lived as a young girl and takes the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and familiar haunts. Grace had ambitions to spread her wings beyond the life she knew but has found that the grass is not necessarily greener. 

    This is a light and enjoyable story with romance in the background. Grace's friendship with Joan is believable and central to the story. Grace finds that for some, there have been lifechanging changes and this is dealt with in a matter of fact manner but with sensitivity. I enjoyed the humorous episodes, especially when Grace came into contact with her next =door neighbour. This is a book to take on holiday, with a warm uplifting tone and plenty of subplots to keep your interest.

In short:  A light romance full of summer sun.
