So today is my stop on the Forever at Conwenna Cove blog tour! I have been a fan of Darcie Boleyn’s for a while, so was very pleased to be able to read and review this novel as part of her blog tour.
‘If you have never read a book by Darcie Boleyn you are definitely missing out.’ Rae Reads
Following heartbreak, Zoe Russell found a haven in Conwenna Cove. As the owner of the village diner and a volunteer for the local greyhound sanctuary, she’s happy with her peaceful life.
Local surfer Nate Bryson plans to leave Conwenna and see the world. He wants to shake off his reputation as a ladies man and start again somewhere new. Before departing, Nate decides to raise funds for the dog rescue home as a way of giving back to the community.
When Nate approaches Zoe to help with the charity event she sees there’s more to him than meets the eye. Nate can’t believe he’s failed to notice the kind and beautiful woman right before him. But can two such different people ever be together, especially if one of them is determined to leave?
Perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Phillipa Ashley and Sarah Bennett.
Firstly, I was so pleased to find myself back at Conwenna Cove. I must confess to not having read Summer at Conwenna Cove (it’s still on my TBR list – oops!) but I have read Christmas at Conwenna Cove (feel free to check out my review) and I loved it. I am a village girl, and Conwenna Cove has the same feel to it as my own beloved village. It has a community that knows one another, helps each other, celebrates together and generally just supports each other. This makes a winning combination in a novel, and it’s particularly good in a series such as this. Throughout the series various characters pop up that you really want to know more about, so its lovely when you get that opportunity. Forever at Conwenna Cove is no exception to this.
Zoe Russell is the sea-fearing owner of the village diner, and a woman who tends to keep to herself despite having such an open and welcoming business. The hurt of her past stops her from making connections with people that she would clearly benefit from, but she is eager to protect herself from any further pain.
Nate Bryson could not be more different. He is a local surfer who loves the sea, loves people and loves his close family and friends. He has two aims: to run an amazing fundraising event for the local greyhound rescue home, and to finally travel, experiencing the world before he settles down.
Zoe and Nate find themselves working together as Nate throws himself into the planning of his big fundraising event, bringing together local businesses and the wider community. Despite being wildly different people, Zoe and Nate must find a way to work together successfully, with hopefully a little fun and romance thrown in for good measure!
This is such a lovely romance. Zoe has a past that she must learn to accept and move on from whilst Nate must juggle his work, love-life and family at an important time for them all. I really enjoyed following how they dealt with their issues whilst learning more about each other and forming a beautiful friendship. This is a perfect novel to read with a glass of wine, preferably on a beach over what will (hopefully) be a glorious bank holiday weekend. So go and grab yourself a copy!
