Home is where the heart is…
Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.
But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.
With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…
Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!
About the Author :
Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.
As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’.
Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
‘Coming Home To Wishington Bay’ is the first book I’ve read written by Maxine Morrey and I wish I had discovered her sooner!
I love her writing style!
Or maybe it was that Aussie guy?
Nope, it was definitely the dog!
Or was it Wishington Bay itself?
I can’t make up my mind, but it was really enjoyable to read.
Not a typical rom-com maybe as it tackles somes serious issues, which made it, in my opinion, better and more relatable.
It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride, but no worries, there are enough very humorous moments.
And did I already mention a very sweet and endearing dog?
You will certainly enjoy this gorgeous story as (almost) everyone and everything will charm you, just as the story did me.
So come on, make this book a wonderful addition to your reading list, I know you want to!
