Welcome to Pepper Bay, where you’ll find love, drama, and a happily ever after.

Snuggle down with this cosy, feel-good, comfort read that whisks you away to a beautiful bay on the Isle of Wight – Perfect for fans of Christie Barlow, Alison Sherlock, Rachael Lucas, and Holly Martin.

The Pepper Bay books are standalone stories that intertwine with recurring characters. Best enjoyed when read in order.

Christmas Memories at Waterside Cottage: Charlie and Grace have been together for four years, but when Grace wakes up in hospital after an accident, she doesn’t remember her husband at all. With Christmas just around the corner, and it being their favourite time of year, Charlie pulls out all the festive stops, hoping his wife will remember their relationship or at least fall in love with him all over again, because there is no way he can lose her.

My Thoughts

Charlie and Grace’s story is a wonderful addition to the Pepper Bay series. Awaking from a coma, Grace finds that the last four years of her memories have vanished and as she tries to find them, she also has to find her way back to her husband, Charlie. I particularly like the way you get to hear both Charlie and Grace’s thoughts as the story develops. 

    This has all the usual ingredients of Pepper Bay story. There is romance but also a great feeling of community, friendship and family. In this one, I did find Grace’s family to be a bit too overpowering but you really felt their desperation to make her well. This is a warm, endearing story which captures the festive season perfectly, with all the Christmas trimmings you might expect. 

In short: can love 

find its way back?
