Dreams were turned reality at Serenity Bay, and it was author Helen Bridgett who could pull this magic off by churning out a tale of friendship.

Chloe was all done in by life. She decided to move in with her best friend Roisin to Serenity Bay. When she got to know her friend’s dream, it took all their energy to convert it to reality. The girls wanted to turn the farm into a nature’s retreat. But then a group of celebrities descended on them to shoot their reality series. It was absolute chaos.

My first book by this author, I was soothed by the idea of the wellness retreat. I needed some virtual TLC. The idea of celebrities with their demands tickled me pink. I needed that humor. The writing had great atmosphere, landscapes were described beautifully. I needed to escape in it. The people of the village were friendly and kicked in to help, after a few skirmishes. I needed to be surrounded by them.

This was an easy beach read with warm eclectic characters set in a small village where the magic of peace and calm slowly permeated into all. The celebrities did turn the story with their demands, but that just added a spice to the flavor.

I loved how the author could make her characters come alive. Chloe was fun to know. Friendship was highlighted beautifully in this delightful, feel good tale.

Time sped by and the afternoon turned as I moved through the pages, savoring the scenes until the end. A captivating beach read.

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

What happens when you send a group of celebrities to a tiny seaside village?

Advertising executive Chloe Walsh thought she was visiting her friend Roisin to get away from it all, but little does she know her kooky friend has a master plan to breathe some life into her sleepy seaside village through a new wellness retreat – and she needs Chloe’s skills.

So starts a community effort to put the retreat, Serenity Bay, on the map. Everyone from Andy at the Surf Shack to Tony at the chocolate shop is involved – even Roisin’s Gran has a few ideas!

But Chloe strikes gold almost too soon, attracting the attention of a major production company. Now a colourful group of celebrities are preparing to descend on Serenity Bay to film a reality TV show. Is the village ready for the fun and scandal that are bound to follow?
