New Beginnings by the Sunflower Cliffs by Georgina Troy #Review


New Beginnings by the Sunflower Cliffs by Georgina Troy is the first in a gorgeous, romantic series set on the breathtaking island of Jersey. Perfect for fans of Jessica Redland and Phillipa Ashley. It was published by Boldwood Books on November 15th.

People say that it’s hard not to fall in love living on the sunny island of Jersey, but for Bea Philips, still reeling from a divorce and the loss of her beloved godmother, she's not sure she can find the time. While her soon-to-be-ex-husband is trying to take away the home she grew up in, surly but attractive builder Luke is doing it up. Her old flame Tom has just turned up as her new manager at the office, and she has no idea what the mysterious Jersey Kiss is that her godmother has bequeathed to her...

Is life going to give Bea a break, so she can keep her dream home, and maybe fall in love?

 My Thoughts

This is a promising start to a new series which centres on Bea, who is at a crossroads in her life. Determined to hold on to her late godmother's house, she puts all her energy into trying to find a way to save it, despite her ex-husband's demands. She finds a great comfort in the house, particularly in the garden which she tries to keep going as her godmother would have wanted.

    The men in Bea's life are a varied bunch and as you discover, they do not all have her best interests at heart. Nevertheless, there is the promise of a new romance and a future on the island, if she can but see it. The setting is gorgeous and adds a dimension to the story. I also enjoyed some of the secondary characters, particularly her friends who stand by her and who add humour through their interactions. 

In short: interesting characters and a wonderful setting
