Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Wow. Poetry in prose. Words written by author Jenny Hale surpassed everything that I had loved in her books to reach the wondrous heights that only love for writing would bring. This was my most favorite book. A gorgeous cover too, so apt.

The minute you stop thinking so hard is the minute the answer will come to you.

A direct quote from the book. My heart was so overwhelmed with the emotions and genuineness in the story that I could barely get some words out. I just felt too much, my heart was close to bursting. The characters Sydney and Nate, the situations, lovers moving apart, second chance at love, family, friendship all displayed the power of the author’s writing.

A story about second chance love, two lovers meeting again at Firefly Beach and with many twists and turns and misunderstandings, they find love at the House on the Firefly Beach.

You have to live like there’s no heartbreak. If you tiptoe around, trying to keep yourself safe, you’ll miss all the moments that will make you who you are…

Powerful words as these were never spoken which etched their meaning into my very heart beat. Warmth coursed my veins as I continued reading, so convinced that the author dipped her quill not in the ink-well but in the passion of her feelings. The book spoke to me.

The story was a HEA, it might seem familiar, but the writing, oh the writing… It was très magnifique.

Bubbles of pleasure burst through me while I read the book, feeling so happy. My second book over the lazy weekend. Joyous times.

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

For Sydney Flynn, her treasured family home, Starlight Cottage, is her sanctuary. The house on the beach, surrounded by glittering turquoise waters, is the perfect place for her fresh start, piecing her life back together after it fell apart. That’s until her knees almost buckle at the sight of Nate Henderson.

As teenagers, Sydney and Nate spent their summers whispering sweet nothings and promising “forever” to each other. Sydney never imagined that her childhood sweetheart was going to break her heart, driving away from her and Firefly Beach, never looking back.

Now, when Sydney spots him at her sister’s wedding, their eyes meeting across the rows of guests, she barely recognizes him. The down-to-earth son of a fisherman, forever in beach t-shirts and flip flops, is replaced with a successful songwriter in a designer suit, a superstar in the country music scene. Yet despite everything, his dazzling blue eyes and easy smile stir up all the feelings she thought she’d left behind.

Nate is back to make it up to Sydney, but can she forgive him for all the heartbreak he caused? And it’s not only about her – Sydney is a single mother to Robby, her whole world, and she won’t let just anyone into their lives. Can she trust that Nate has really changed?

As if worrying about Nate wasn’t enough, a new development threatens Starlight Cottage, the safe haven that saved her when she had nothing else. Can Nate and Sydney overcome their past to save Firefly Beach and the house that holds so many memories for them? Or will the town they adore, and the love they have for one another, be lost forever?
