Happy May everybody!

Delighted to share with you today my review for this charming story! Thank you so much Rachel for my invitation to the tour!💫

Coming Home To Wishington Bay

Home is where the heart is…

Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.
But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.
With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…
Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!

My Thoughts

Has this ever happened to you? you inherit a house from your grandmother in a lovely beachside village. When you go to check out the house there is a hot Australian living next-door. He happens to be a doctor and a super kind and down to earth guy, with an adorable dog??? No? Well me neither. Seriously not one of these things has ever happened to me? This is why we read so we can live vicariously through the characters in our books. And Holly experiences all of this and more.

Maxine Moorey has written another delightful romcom sure to make you smile and swoon. From the first page of this book you know where it is going, but it’s the getting there that is so much fun. Holly was a lovely character with a big heart and I really wanted her to find her HEA. Gabe was pretty darn scrumptious and his dog Bryan was simply delightful. I also really liked Holly‘s brother who had a tendency to put his foot in his mouth, he said some things that really made me laugh. Like most romances there were times in this book I was so frustrated with Holly and Gabe, I guess it’s always easier to see what’s going on as a silent observer.

Simply put this was a fun uplifting story packed with humor and heart!

Author Bio

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.

As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.

In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’.

Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
