Coming Home to Merriment Bay Part 4 by Emily Harvale @emilyharvale @rararesources #bookreview

Happy Monday book friends!

Emily Harvale has become one of my favorite authors, I would read anything she writes. Rachel could email me with a book about antelope on a rocket trip to the moon where they encounter dinosaurs and I’d see it was by Emily and I’d say OK I’ll read it! But please don’t get any ideas! This is the last book in this fun serial and I am certainly hoping that there is more fun to be had in Merriment Bay! 🙏🏻

Coming Home to Merriment Bay: Part Four: Starry Skies

Part Four 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 is reeling from the unexpected events of Christmas and as Merriment Bay prepares to toast in the New Year, she’s facing choices she never thought she’d have to make. Her head and her heart are pulling her in very different directions.

Bailey is sitting by Viola’s bedside, regaling everyone with tales from the past but is there any chance he’ll get to see a smile on the lips of the woman he still loves?

Having realised she has made mistakes, will Mary finally tell Cat what she really wants to know?

And what will the New Year bring for Kyra? Will she fulfil the plans she made before she came to Merriment Bay?

When distressing events end more than one person’s dream, can Cat find the strength to fight for the Love she deserves? Sometimes it takes a crisis to make someone realise what they truly want. And Cat has decided what – and who – that really is. But is she too late?

My Thoughts

This was the perfect ending to this delightful series. Emily Harvale sure knows how to spin a tale and tug at my heartstrings. This book hit me right in the feels! Emotional, whimsical, and charming! This book ties up all the loose strings from the previous books and does it in a beautiful heartfelt way. We finally find out if Granny Violet and Bailey rekindle there long burning flame. Best of all we finally get to see if Cat and Amias figure things out. Over 18 years of will they? Won’t they? Two smart people acting foolishly, I’m sure everyone reading this wanted to knock their heads together! I thought the conclusion to the story was perfect and I loved the backdrop of New Year’s Eve, perfect time to finally get it together. I hope this is not the last book in the series I’m sure there is more fun to be had in Merriment Bay.
