New Beginnings at Wynter House by Emily Harvale

I’m so pleased to be part of the blog tour today for this lovely book. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

The New Year brings unexpected revelations at Wynter House.

Neva Grey’s Christmas brought several surprises. Now a shocking secret has life-changing consequences for the Wynters, as the New Year brings revelations … and relatives to Wynter House.

It also brings Hazel Smart and Amelia Goodbody. And it’s not just Adam and Rafe Wynter who are pleased Hazel and Amelia have come to stay. Olivia Wynter will enjoy bossing nurse Hazel around and she also makes it clear Amelia – who is handling the marketing for Rafe’s new business venture – is far more suited to be her grandson’s girlfriend than Neva will ever be.

Whilst Amelia is ensconced at Wynter House, Neva is busy with her new hair and beauty salon in Merriment Bay. Perhaps she should enlist her niece, Sasha’s help because just when she thought she had found the love of her life, old secrets, ghosts from the past, and new arrivals might shatter all her dreams.

At least she has her best friend, Jo Duncan to lean on. But newly single, Jo is determined to have some fun, both at Wynter House and in Merriment Bay. And so is Adam Wynter.

This is book two in the Wyntersleap series but it can be read as a standalone. The Wyntersleap series is interlinked with the Merriment Bay series and several characters appear in both series.

My Review:

It was great to be back at Wynter House again, with all the familiar characters, plus a few new ones.

There is so much going on in this book. Things have moved very fast for Neva and Rafe, and they’re very happy together. But the new arrivals are a cause for concern for her.

It’s easy to read this book as a standalone if you wish, but for anyone who has read the previous book, it’s great to reconnect with the characters that we met before.

There’s plenty of humour and lots of drama in this book, and the characters are so well drawn. It will keep you thoroughly engaged from start to finish. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next one already.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
