Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're joining ranks with Rachel's Random Resources for a stop along their four part tour featuring book one of the Coming Home to Merriment Bay series from author Emily Harvale. Honestly guys, it's as sweet as the cover implies, but there's plenty of hardship, hard feelings, and missteps in love to go around too. Ready or not, let's set out sights on today's ebook of choice...
Coming Home to Merriment Bay
PART TWO: SPARKS FLY
Merriment Bay series
About the book...
Part Two of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.
Cat Devon knew she couldn’t avoid Amias Wells for long. She also knew sparks would fly the moment they came face to face. They never did get on and nothing has changed in eighteen years – except that Amias is even more annoying. So why does Cat still catch her breath whenever he looks her way?
The fact he flies a vintage Spitfire for the Merriment Bay WWII Museum doesn’t interest Cat, but his knowledge of the former RAF pilots stationed there certainly does. She wants to find out all she can about the man in the photo in Viola’s trunk. And what with hospital visits, dealing with her mum, and sorting out problems with Viola’s house, Cat could use more than just Kyra’s help.
But Kyra makes it clear she thinks Cat and Amias should spend more time together. Which is ridiculous. Apart from the fact they don’t get on, Amias wasn’t interested in Cat before the accident that left the ugly scars on her face and body, so he definitely won’t be attracted to her now. Besides, Cat’s not looking for romance. She’s happy with her life just the way it is.
Sounds like the groundwork has been laid for some sparks to REALLY start to fly! I mean, it's beyond obvious to pretty much everyone that Cat's feelings are still there hiding barely below the surface, and it seems as if Amias may not have been so put off my her attention from their youth as she thought. From the sound of things, the words of others got in the way of what might have been as well as a few well placed lies. HOWEVER...all the secrets that are starting to come to the surface...will they we strong enough to survive whatever life may be about to throw at them AND embark on something long overdue?
I can honestly say that I like how this novel-in-series is shaping up and though different in delivery style, it works for today's moving and shaking lifestyle. The characters are definitely leaving their marks, and one can't help but chuckle at the way Cat's daughter played her mom's not-so-hidden affections like a well tuned fiddle! The look on Cat's face when "out of nowhere" Amias appears...priceless.
Now then, I've shared my latest update on this series with all of you, and am certainly recommending you continue to read along (or catch up, if you have yet to start!) as I take on part three for my next part in the tour. :)
