What the publisher says:
Welcome to beautiful Hope Island where the sea sparkles, the daffodils are blooming and a blossoming romance is just around the corner…
Bella has always had a sunny outlook and caring nature, despite recently falling on hard times. When she finds a handsome homeless man on her doorstep, her kind heart tells her she must help him. So, she invites Isaac into her cottage and into her life in ways she could never have imagined…
But Isaac is not what he seems. He’s keeping a huge secret from Bella, yet he never expected to fall for this open, generous and charming woman.
Bella can’t ignore the chemistry between her and Isaac, but she’s had her trust badly broken in her past. Will she run when she learns the truth about Isaac, or will he be the one man who can help Bella believe in love again?
What I say:
This book was a treat from start to finish. Bella is a believable character who takes a risk and invites a handsome stranger to spend the night on her sofa when he turns up apparently homeless. The stranger has a secret that is so surprise to the reader but is a complete surprise to Bella.
Bella has a disastrous (and very funny) interview and is appointed to the job of her dreams which will allow her to help people and overcome what happened in her previous job. Once she starts she also begins a relationship with Isaac who also happens to be her boss.
The book charts their romantic ups and downs with humour in such a manner that keeps you glued until the last page. This was the first Holly Martin novel I have read and I look forward to finding more of her books
