Another cute book which had all the feels with a story twist and many a humorous dialogue. Author Sue McDonagh sure gave me a couple of hours of escapism.
Flora had a bad day with groping hands and a betraying love. So she drove away on her infidel boyfriend’s bike and later surfed into the sea only to be saved by a hunky Aussie Jake. And Art Café was their focal point for coffee and cakes.
My first book by this author though third in the series, each is a standalone. The friendly characters enveloped the book with their cheer and goodwill. Flora was quite complex but with a mouth which had no filters. That made some funny moments, had to giggle at her innuendos.
I loved how Jake was initially quite shocked with some of them until he got it. He got her in the book;their relationship progressed slowly down the pages. The path of true love would always have the author wanting to create thorns. And Sue McDonagh too made them walk through different emotions.
Real characters, twisty plot, many emotions made this quite a fun read.Tweet
I received a free ARC from the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

And when Aussie-Welsh lifeguard Jake Foley steps in just when Flora needs help the most, she realises that her ‘holiday’ feels more like home with every passing day …
