Summer at Conwenna Cove - Darcie Boleyn || Netgalley Review

In a gorgeous Cornish village, two brokenhearted people fall head over heels. But can the magic of Conwenna Cove heal the hurts of the past? 

 Eve has a glittering career, a loving husband and a future. But a terrible twist of fate means she loses it all, and with nowhere left to turn she flees to her Aunt Mary’s home in Cornwall. The last thing on her mind is romance – until she meets Jack.

 Jack has seen the worst things people can do to each other and realised he is better off alone. He settles in Conwenna Cove, and saves his affections for the rescue dogs he cares for. But when Eve arrives in the village he can’t deny his attraction to her.

 Eve and Jack are both scared to trust, but when they come together it’s impossible for either to ignore their feelings. Can they put their fears aside and learn to love again?

This book won my twitter poll of my which to read next. It was one of the highest rated books on my netgalley TBR and won by a considerable amount so this was one i was very excited to read. Having visited Cornwall for the first time ever last year and dreaming of it since i do love a book based there even more than before now.

Eve is a workaholic, having thrown herself into her day job after her life started to crash around her eventually something was going to give. When in the middle of an important meeting with the board of governors Eve suffers a major anxiety/panic/migraine attack and decides enough is enough after she throws up then and there.

Realising she needs a break and not knowing where to turn - she turns to the only woman she calls family - her aunt Mary, who suggests she visits her in Cornwall, she believes that Conwenna Cove has healing properties.

Jack has suffered some of the worst experiences a person can, and has settled in Conwenna Cove, being in the open, near the sea and surrounded by rescue greyhounds he is happy. What he didn't expect when he meets Eve is to like her, and to actually want spend time with a woman. 

The pair are both scared to trust, to acknowledge their feelings but are both working on healing themselves. Summer at Conwenna Cove is a wonderful read, its full of Cornish delights, wondrous amounts of cake (oh am i crazing Lemon Drizzle with a cup of tea!) and a real likeable set of characters. There was not one person i came across who i disliked. Eve was such a sweet character, she was strong and proud but wanted to do right by everyone.

If you are after a perfect summer read that can transport you to the coast, having you smile and warming your heart this is the one for that. I love Darcie Boleyn as an author having read a few previous reads and this just bumps her up my author to read list.

Author Info

Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
