Cat has found true happiness in Merriment Bay. Will a discovery in Devon Villa change that?
Cat Devon is finally with the love of her life – and she couldn’t be happier about that. But discovering the identity of her real dad and the fact she has two half-brothers was a shock. Getting to know her new family is now a priority.
Kyra Devon is only eighteen, but she’s more mature than her mum in many ways and is coping far better with everything that’s happened. Kyra knows what she wants and unlike Cat, she’s not going to let opportunities slip away.
Mary Devon has regained her daughter and her granddaughter, but she’s grieving for her mother, and also for the loss of the love she thought she’d found. Putting on a brave face may not be the best way for Mary to get over it.
When a long-lost painting called Moonbeams Kiss is discovered in a hidden cellar beneath the floorboards in Devon Villa, a story of love, loss and treachery unfolds, bringing with it repercussions for each of the Devon women.
This is Book Two 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.
It was great to be back in Merriment Bay and catch up with all the characters again.
This is a story that is driven by strong female characters. The Devon women are all to be admired and I love that we get to see aspects of all three of their lives.
Cat and Amias’ relationship is going from strength to strength and their happiness is infectious. Kyra on the other hand is having a few issues in her own love life. It reminded me of what is was like to be eighteen again although she definitely has her head screwed on more than mine was at her age.
I enjoyed how the author incorporates the three women’s lives alongside the painting which adds some mystery and intrigue to the story. It was good to get a bit of history to Devon Villa and the author portrays the houses and area so well, making it vivid in my head.
Chasing Moonbeams in Merriment Bay is a great follow on from the previous book in the series. I do think it would be best to read in order to get the full back ground of the characters and to gain the best enjoyment in this one. It’s like my favourite soap, being transported into the lives of the characters and eager for the next instalment to see what will happen next. A highly enjoyable read that oozes romance, relationships and more.
