Sunrise Over Sapphire Bay - Holly Martin || Blog Tour

Fall in love with the beautiful Jewel Island this summer, where the sapphire sea sparkles, the golden sun warms your skin and the islanders melt your heart. From the bestselling author of The Little Village of Happiness comes Holly Martin’s most romantic novel yet.

 Aria Philips has lived on Jewel Island all of her life. Even when her sisters Clover and Skye left its stunning shores for bigger and better things, Aria stayed to help her father run their family hotel.

 A year after her father’s death Aria’s done everything she can to keep things afloat but the hotel has long been struggling to make a profit. With so few guests Aria risks losing the only home she’s ever had.

 Noah Campbell earned his fortune from making hotels a success, and he also just happens to be staying on Jewel Island this summer. Could he be the answer to Aria’s problems? If only he hadn’t kissed her under the willow tree the year before and never called her again. It had been the most incredible kiss of her life, but clearly business and pleasure should never be mixed.

 As gorgeous and charming as Noah may be, Aria vows to keep things professional while she seeks his help. But for the past year Noah has been keeping a secret and his return to Jewel Island is about to change Aria’s life forever…

Firstly let me say, i adore Holly Martin and the locations she creates, they are just dreamy. If i could write places even the slightest bit like her i would be happy. Sunrise over Sapphire Bay is the first in the Jewel Island series and it will have you dreaming of holidays to little coastal islands.

Aria has lived on Jewel Island all her life and all she wants is for the Hotel she calls home to be a success, despite her dad really not wanting to move with the times Aria has grand ideas for the place. She also has her own little dreams and they may include Noah (a guest turned friend turned someone with sizzling chemistry. However - with little chance of that progressing she has to focus on the future.

When sadness befalls the family and they loose their dad - it brings Arias sisters back to Jewel Island, although a year has passed the estate is finally been settled and perhaps that will lead to a little bit of money for Aria to start bringing the hotel up to date. However - when the will is read, it throws everything Aria thought she knew up in the air and her future suddenly doesn't seem so clear.

Sunrise over Sapphire Bay is wonderful, Holly has written a brilliant leading lady who i loved spending time with, she had such a warm and pure soul. She was so kind and nice, and it was so enjoyable to read. Her sisters had similar traits but also their own personalities and i cant wait to discover more about them. Now, Noah - was something else, and when put with Aria it was like the pair would combust because every time i read an interaction between the two i could feel the tension building.

Lastly, the surrounding characters of the islanders and hotel guests were all so well written too. They all had unique personalities that helped to make Jewel island exactly what it is. I am really rooting for the place to move forward and become a success. This book was the perfect blend of sweet, and sexy when it needed to be. It was warm and dreamy and really is the perfect pick me up.

I was gifted an e-arc but this has not biased my review, i really enjoy Holly's writing and look forward to more from Jewel Island.
