Meet me at Pebble Beach - Bella Osbourne || Blog Tour

Regan is holding a winning lottery ticket.

Goodbye to the boyfriend who never had her back, and so long to the job she can’t stand! Except it’s all a bit too good to be true…

When Regan gets pranked, she finds herself jobless, homeless and boyfriendless in one fell swoop.

Luckily her friendly seaside community provides a beacon of hope, proving to Regan that sometimes you really can rely on the kindness of others – and one local in particular, a handsome fireman called Charlie, helps Regan realise that this could be her chance for a fresh start.

Armed with a list of ways to change her life, Regan decides it’s time to step out of her comfort zone. Because – as Charlie knows all too well – life is for living . . .

A feel-good summer read, perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Veronica Henry and Cressida McLaughlin.

I read the first part of this book recently and fully reviewed it here. I was lucky enough to be invited onto the tour for the full book and i was excited to see where it went after i last left off. For those who haven't read the review ill start from the beginning.

Regan has won the lottery, she is holding the ticket and she is so excited she can now leave her job, her boyfriend and follow her dreams including her aims to save an endangered animal & own a business. Her dreams really were coming true, but she has been pranked. Only after she has ditched her job, boyfriend & home does she discover this.

All is not lost though, no matter how it seems - Regan meets a wonderful man named Charlie who helps her look at her list and take life by the horns, he knows that you should take chances and why not now. Regan can follow her dreams.

We follow Regan through the little seaside community and with some help from the locals her life starts to change. Let me say, i loved this. At first the list seemed so far fetched but with some tweaking from Charlie it was certainly achievable. Previous i said that Regan didn't take life too seriously but as we discovered her more, i warmed to her so much, that her personality was infectious. She was confident and didn't hesitate to shout when she thought someone was wronged.

I feel like Charlie in comparison was her perfect match with her chaotic nature, he was calming and soothing. Throw in Regans friends in the form of Cleo, Penny, Kevin and Elvis the dog and you have a lively mismatched bunch. I liked that as new things happened, we spent alot of time understanding them and how they would impact Regans life.

Bella has created a thriving community within a little seaside community and i adored it. It was well constructed and everyone had real depth to them. It was laugh out loud funny in parts, it was endearing and at parts i did feel myself well up.

Bella has been jotting down stories as far back as she can remember. Her first story, written when she was nine, was about a thief who stole the crown jewels and this sadly remains unpublished. However, undeterred, she continued to write stories for adults and 'It Started At Sunset Cottage' is her debut novel.

 She likes to find the humour in the darker moments of life and weaves these into her stories. Bella believes that writing your own story really is the best fun ever, closely followed by talking, eating chocolate, drinking fizz and planning holidays.

 She lives in The Midlands with her lovely husband and wonderful daughter, who thankfully, both accept her as she is (with mad morning hair and a penchant for skipping).
