I have enjoyed everything I read from this author. Her books are light and fun and contain Happy Endings! They are the perfect beach read, Sunday afternoon read or just when I need an escape read.
This story is a sequel to The Cottage at Hope Cove that I thoroughly enjoyed. The story concentrates on the younger sister, Josie, who is struggling to find her place in the world. Recently unemployed (again) and broken up with her boyfriend (again) she moves from the big city to a small town to work at a kennel. I was so happy to see Annette (Kennel owner) making a return and having a bigger part in this book. Also Josie’s big sister Lizzy, and new husband Max are back to add to the reader’s enjoyment.
Once again the author is able to use the settings to add a nice dimension to the story. She includes local old and new personalities that make her stories so much richer. While this continues shortly after Hope Cove I think it could easily be read and enjoyed as a standalone – but there is a lot of enjoyment to knowing the characters! So read them both!

Or is it?
Being part of a small community has stirred something in Josie and she begins to question what she really wants. Can she turn her back on her new life and say goodbye to Sam? Or is she ready to hang up her running shoes and stay put? Maybe she’s finally found something worth sticking around for…
