Happy happy Friday!
I love summer and all the summer romances that come with it! This was such a sweet small-town romance to put a BIG smile on my face🥰
Coming Home to Heritage Cove
Welcome to Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea brimming with character, community and friendship, and the perfect place to fall in love this summer…
Melissa rushes back to Heritage Cove when Barney, the man who’s been like a father figure to her since she was a little girl, ends up in hospital. After an absence of five years, her return isn’t going to be easy, especially when she bumps into Harvey, the love of her life and the man she’s never been able to forget.
For reasons he couldn’t explain at the time, Harvey changed his mind about going with Melissa to start afresh as they’d planned, and life moved on for the both of them. But with Melissa back in the village and determined to stick around to help Barney, they can’t avoid each other forever. Melissa knows she let so many people down by staying away for so long, but she and Harvey blame each other for what happened and neither of them is willing to admit to being in the wrong.
When Barney insists on cancelling the Wedding Dress Ball, the charity fundraiser he holds every year in the stunning barn on his property, Melissa and Harvey realise they’re going to have to pull together. Otherwise the man they once knew might be gone forever. And when they unearth a secret Barney has never shared with anyone, they go in search of answers to not only ensure the ball runs this summer, but to bring back the Barney they know and love.
Back in the cove after all this time, Melissa gets to see the life she left behind and it’s time to deal with what it was that drove her away in the first place.
Beneath the summer sunshine in Heritage Cove, the sea sparkles, the heat rises and new love, reconciliations and the answers to an old love story could bring changes for everyone.
Charming! Helen J Rolfe has written a delightful tale packed with lovable characters with an enchanting setting. Melisa is living a good life in London working as a flight attendant and engaged to her pilot fiancé Jay. When she receives a message from back home that Barney her surrogate father has taken a fall she packs her bags no questions asked. But returning home means facing her past, including the ex Love of her life, Harvey. Loved this sweet Second Chance Romance. The residents of Heritage Cove were The Best. Loves how Harvey and Melisa banded together to make sure Barneys annual Wedding Dress dance went on as planned. I also thought this was a brilliant idea a chance for people to re-wear their wedding dresses. The only problem I had with this story was I thought Jay got the short end of the stick. Having said that I did want Harvey and Melisa to find their happily ever after. A heartwarming story that made me smile.
