Happy Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning!

I pretty much love anything that Emily Harvale Rights and this book is no exception! I loved this little story, but it left me needing more, thank goodness I have the next two parts of this series in my Kindle!

Coming Home to Merriment Bay: Part Two: Sparks Fly

Part Two of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.

Cat Devon knew she couldn’t avoid Amias Wells for long. She also knew sparks would fly the moment they came face to face. They never did get on and nothing has changed in eighteen years – except that Amias is even more annoying. So why does Cat still catch her breath whenever he looks her way?

The fact he flies a vintage Spitfire for the Merriment Bay WWII Museum doesn’t interest Cat, but his knowledge of the former RAF pilots stationed there certainly does. She wants to find out all she can about the man in the photo in Viola’s trunk. And what with hospital visits, dealing with her mum, and sorting out problems with Viola’s house, Cat could use more than just Kyra’s help.

But Kyra makes it clear she thinks Cat and Amias should spend more time together. Which is ridiculous. Apart from the fact they don’t get on, Amias wasn’t interested in Cat before the accident that left the ugly scars on her face and body, so he definitely won’t be attracted to her now. Besides, Cat’s not looking for romance. She’s happy with her life just the way it is.

My Thoughts

This is the second part in the delightful Merriment Bay series. You definitely need to read the first book to fully understand this book, this is a series that absolutely needs to be read in order. The story picks up right where the first book left off with Cat and Kyra trying to figure out who the mysterious man in the picture is? Could this possibly be Cat’s grandfather? Everyone has so many secrets in the story both Cat and her mother have no idea who their fathers are? We also get to see “sparks fly“ when Cat and Amias first see each other again. We also come to understand what had kept them apart all those years ago. Some secrets were revealed in this story, however some of them lead to even more questions. Cannot wait to pick up the third installment in this book and see what is next in store for this engaging cast of characters. Emily Harvale has once again stole my heart with her compelling story telling!
