A warm welcome and delicious chocolate gateau are always on the menu at the Bakery at Seashell Cove – and this summer, romance is in the air…
Meg Larson thought she had everything she wanted: she works in the local bakery, she’s months away from marrying her high-school sweetheart, and home is beautiful, sunny Seashell Cove, where the sky is blue, the sea is turquoise and the sand is golden.
Except that the bakery is up for sale and her fiancé Sam’s more interested in bikes than their relationship. When Meg receives shocking news about her family, he’s on a cycling tour and ignoring her calls – and posting selfies on Facebook with a female cyclist he looks far too cosy with…
Luckily the bakery’s estate agent, Nathan, is understanding and funny, and as the summer goes on an unexpected friendship blossoms. When the bakery is given a second lease of life under a mysterious new owner, Meg realises a change might be exactly what she needs too.
Will Meg find the happy-ever-after she dreams of in Seashell Cove?
I really felt for Meg. She loves her job in the bakery so it certainly couldn’t have been easy having an uncertain future, especially when she is literally months away from tying the knot.
Now Nathan the love interest sent my pulse racing never mind poor Meg’s. I fell head over heels in love with him myself. The blossoming friendship between the two will certainly have your heart melting.
Meg has so many decisions to make that I didn’t really envy the position she is in getting pressure from her boyfriends family with the wedding arrangements. You can see her heart and soul goes into her baking, of which can I just say had my mouth watering. I probably wouldn’t advise reading this book on an empty stomach that’s for sure!
Even though Meg has some serious decisions to make, this is still a heart warming and very much light hearted read. I loved how the author threw some little surprises in there for the readers making this one novel extremely hard to put down.
The Bakery At Seashell Cove is a deliciously, wondrous story that you will devour within no time at all. It is escapism at it’s finest and I really enjoyed every minute of it.
