Escape to Sandy Cove, where the scent of summer and the sound of wedding bells are in the air!
Ella makes brides’ dreams come true – there’s no dress she can’t make perfect with her sewing skills and some sparkle. But Ella’s own love life is no fairy tale. Recently dumped, surrounded by fussy brides and with the prospect of wearing a hideous brown bridesmaids dress to her friend’s wedding, Ella feels more alone than ever so agrees to go on a blind date.
A mix up on the night introduces her to Kit.
Kit is definitely not the man she was supposed to meet, but he could end up changing her life in ways she never thought possible…
What I Thought:
As we’re all gearing up for summer holiday season, the time is right for romance! In this case, I’m talking about A Wedding at Sandy Cove by Bella Osborne, a light and romantic holiday read that is chock-full of drama, laughter and – of course – oodles of brides!
I really like Ella as a character, and it was great to see her go on a real journey from not being able to stand up for herself to being a strong, determined woman who has plans and places to go.
Her relationship with Kit, which came about through a total mistake, is great to read, although – as with all my favourite romantic couples – they really need their heads banging together at a few points!
There is also an additional storyline with Ella’s friend Lucy, and I thought she was a great character – a woman who knows what she wants, but who has been affected by her early life more than she knows. When she is embroiled in the affairs of a family in breakdown, she has to face some of her fears.
As I said, lots of drama, loads of laughter and a really appealing set of characters – this is my first Bella Osborne book, but certainly not my last!
A Wedding at Sandy Cove is published by HarperCollins.
About the Author:
Bella has been jotting down stories as far back as she can remember but decided that 2013 would be the year that she finished a full length novel. Since then she’s written a number of best-selling romantic comedies and book club reads and won the RNA Romantic Comedy Novel of the Year Award 2022.
Bella’s stories are about friendship, love and coping with what life throws at you. She likes to find the humour in the darker moments of life and weaves these into her stories. She lives in The Midlands, UK with her husband, daughter and a cat who thinks she’s a dog. When not writing Bella is usually eating custard creams and planning holidays.
