Autumn Skies Over Ruby Falls - Holly Martin || Blog Tour


Get swept away to the sparkling Cornish coast with the stunning new novel from bestselling author Holly Martin. Autumn Skies Over Ruby Falls is the perfect romantic treat to snuggle up with this autumn.

Clover Philips is exactly where she’s meant to be – back home on Jewel Island teaching dance to the guests at the beautiful Sapphire Bay Hotel that she co-owns with her sisters Skye and Aria. Her life is complete, except for one thing…

When Clover left London she also left behind a devastating betrayal. She hasn’t been able to date anyone since, let alone allow herself to fall in love. What she needs is a casual fling to ease herself back into romance. And as luck would have it, the very handsome Angel Mazzeo is back in town.

The chemistry between Clover and Angel has been undeniable ever since Angel first arrived on Jewel Island six months ago. And though content to be her friend till now, Angel is more than willing to help Clover find her dating feet again.

It should be easy to keep things carefree when love is off the table, but when every moment is magical what started as casual soon becomes something much deeper. Will Clover and Angel find the courage to tell each other how they really feel? And is Clover ready to do the one thing she swore she’d never do again, fall in love?

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour.

I loved the first in this brand new series so i was equally as excited to sit down and read the second.  This time we follow Clover, one of the sisters who has just landed her dream job in the family hotel teaching classes. Her life couldn't look brighter.

Yet Clover left behind some bad memories in London and they have impacted her ability to date and she is certainly struggling with commitment but the problem is - her friend Angel, the tension between them is something that is building and building and whilst she would like to explore it, the past is holding her back.

The pair already know each other and what to expect from this attempt at dating but can it be something more for either? Will Clover confront her past to help her future?

I loved this. Firstly i enjoyed revisiting Jewel Island and seeing it in its Autumn glory but i found the way such issues of the heart were handled so delicately by all the characters, they were often open honest and raw with each other. They also had the most wonderful relationships, be it friendships or more. It has a real depth to it and thats what i enjoy. You know you are going to get something a bit softer and seasonal but your also going to get serious issues and real emotions and for me that is just the perfect combination in a book. 

I loved also getting a sneak peak of how the others were getting on, and because they are sisters it was nice to still see them spending time with each other. Overall this was a lovely autumnal read.

Holly lives in a little white cottage by the sea. She studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by a even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of her colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years’ service was the moment when she knew she had to escape. She quit her job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, she emerged wide eyed and terrified that she now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds. She taught for four years and then escaped the classroom to teach history workshops, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next. But the long journeys around the UK and many hours sat on the M25 gave her a lot of time to plan out her stories and she now writes full time, doing what she loves.
