Coming Home to Merriment Bay: Part Four: Starry Skies by Emily Harvale @emilyharvale @rararesources

Book Description:

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? 

This is Part Four of a new, four-part serial. The parts are:
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part One: A Reunion
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Two: Sparks Fly
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Three: Christmas
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Four: Starry Skies 

This is a novel told in four parts. It forms Book One in Emily Harvale’s Merriment Bay series which is interconnected to her Wyntersleap series. Each series can be read alone, but several characters appear in both series.

My Thoughts:

So the fourth and final part of the Merriment Bay series and what a finale!

As soon as this book landed on my Kindle, I had to read it. I had to know whether Granny Viola was going to wake up and were her and Bailey going to get their happy ever after. Not just them either, also, more importantly, Cat and Amias.

This final part actually surpassed my expectations. I still wanted to bang Cat and Amias’ heads together, but their story also made me laugh and smile. The timing of year brings a little bit extra to this story. Not only could I easily visualise it all, it just made it all that more important that peace and happiness prevailed before the year is out.

Not only did I smile and laugh but I cried, a lot. I won’t say why but boy does some parts make for a highly emotional read. I had to keep stopping and taking deep breaths before I could carry on. It will have you holding your loved ones that little bit tighter that’s for sure.

Coming Home To Merriment Bay – Part 4: Starry Skies was just the perfect end to what has been a truly wonderful reading experience. It is a meaningful and charming read that I didn’t want to end. This one really pulled on my heart strings and I know it will stay with me for a long time to come.
