Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.

A clever author is this Emily Harvale who made me cry even as she put the laughter back on my lips.

A long month long journey was this when I got to the end of the story of the characters of Merriment Bay. I got the most perfect finish of a book where love won. Every word written by the author showed me the emotions of the characters. Some of them touched my heart. Live life completely without regrets.

There were moments which made me cry yet I was thankful to that scene. It showed me something beyond our control, and the purity of love that could overcome all odds and beliefs. The characters had come a long way, their bonds were stronger. This family had love in their hearts at the end.

Emily Harvale has written many books, but it has been this series which has been the most captivating. Some magic spun in her words caused my heart to overflow with love. There was warmth in this series and an extra something, maybe a Christmas cheer, which made it zingy.

The characters came home to Merriment Bay, and I found a home in this brilliant author’s words. It is not the length of the story, but the depth of it which makes it invigorating. And I have to say, this author had a deep warm heart to write about the characters realistically without making the story too sappy.

Do I really need to say more?

I received a free ARC from Rachel and the author, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Cat is reeling from the unexpected events of Christmas and as Merriment Bay prepares to toast in the New Year, she’s facing choices she never thought she’d have to make. Her head and her heart are pulling her in very different directions.

Bailey is sitting by Viola’s bedside, regaling everyone with tales from the past but is there any chance he’ll get to see a smile on the lips of the woman he still loves?

Having realised she has made mistakes, will Mary finally tell Cat what she really wants to know?

And what will the New Year bring for Kyra? Will she fulfil the plans she made before she came to Merriment Bay?

When distressing events end more than one person’s dream, can Cat find the strength to fight for the Love she deserves? Sometimes it takes a crisis to make someone realise what they truly want. And Cat has decided what – and who – that really is. But is she too late?

  1. I usually steer away from this type of serial book as I worry I might miss one, or there is too much time between etc. It sounds like these came pretty quickly and were well done. Thanks for the great review Shalini and the recommendation.
