In a gorgeous Cornish village, two brokenhearted people fall head over heels. But can the magic of Conwenna Cove heal the hurt of the past? A feel-good summer romance perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Phillipa Ashley and Jenny Hale.

Eve has a glittering career, a loving husband and a future. But a terrible twist of fate means she loses it all, and with nowhere left to turn she flees to her Aunt Mary’s home in Cornwall. The last thing on her mind is romance – until she meets Jack.

Jack has seen the worst things people can do to each other and realised he is better off alone. He settles in Conwenna Cove, and saves his affections for the rescue dogs he cares for. But when Eve arrives in the village he can’t deny his attraction to her.

Eve and Jack are both scared to trust, but when they come together it’s impossible for either to ignore their feelings. Can they put their fear aside and learn to love again?

Summer at Conwenna Cove is an emotional and heart-warming holiday read about being brave enough to take a chance on love.

From the first pages of this book I was drawn in, and by the time the action moved to Conwenna Cove, I was hooked. 

I loved the descriptions of Conwenna Cove, and more importantly of Mary and Jack. For Eve has retreated to her Aunt Mary's house, after things get on top of her at work. What she wasn't counting on was that Mary now has a tennant, Jack, and that he would be an ex-marine with a soft side to him 

He is working in a greyhound rescue centre, and I fell in love with Gabe, and I wasn't the only one. Gabe is a greyhound who needs to learn to trust, a bit like the humans in this story.  

This was a great story of learning to love and trust again, to follow your instincts, and of a summer in a Cornish seaside location. 

This is easily Darcie Boleyn's best book so far,  I can't put my finger on exactly why I loved it so much, but perhaps its because there were things in all the main characters that I could relate to easily.  I loved Mary, and even she has a love interest on the horizon, while Jack had many hidden depths, while Eve was coming to terms with many things in her life, once she gets past denial. 

I loved seeing how Jack and Eve's story would pan out, whether they would get together or whether Eve would go back to Bristol permanently.  There are some funny scenes too including one involving mayonnaise and one where Jack doesn't realise his own strength wile knocking on a door. 

I really enjoyed this book, and am already looking forward to reading the Christmas edition of Conwenna Cove! 

Thank you to Canelo and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily
