I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour today for this really enjoyable book. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Career girl Becca Gates’ organised life is thrown into chaos when her mother, romantic novelist Pearl, announces her surprise engagement to Jack, a man she has only just met.
Worse news follows when Pearl tells Becca she intends to leave London, quit writing, and retire to her new fiancé’s idyllic waterside home on the south coast. Becca is determined to prevent Pearl from making a disastrous mistake, but when she at arrives at Rivermede, more shocks await when she stumbles upon a familiar yet unwelcome face from her past.
As Pearl embraces her new life amongst the local sailing fraternity, Becca receives a grim warning that all is not as calm as it seems at picturesque Rivermede, and if she wants to keep her family safe, she should keep them away.
But why should Becca trust the man who has betrayed her before, the man who broke her heart, the man who thinks he knows all her secrets?
Rosie Travers has really excelled herself with this fabulous book.
There’s a host of wonderful characters, all so well drawn and real.
The plot is intricate and nicely woven, with the perfect balance of mystery, humour and romance.
I liked Becca as a character, and Pearl and Freddy too. I really hoped that it would work out alright for them, in spite of the secrets and apparent danger surrounding them.
The setting was perfect, on the coast, in a beautiful location.
This is a book that will keep you turning the pages, very enjoyable and entertaining. Highly recommended.
MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
