The Review: I was thrilled to jump into this, as we arrived at the village of Heritage Cove with our lead, Melissa, who has been given bad news about a person who was dear to her many years ago and who she still keeps in contact with. The settings got me straight away, motion picture technicolour, straight out of a movie scenes that actually were the norm throughout this lovely book.
There are multiple stories in this but the one that stole my heart was that of Barney, the old man in question, who has a few secrets that impact both of our leads, Melissa and Harvey, who, whilst trying to figure out Barney and why this year he’s decided he can’t run the Wedding Dress Ball, an event he’s handled for many years, are each trying to figure out each other. I was in from the start to the end of this beautiful book, with vivid descriptions that drew me in a dn held me. I had a few niggles throughout, but they were me being pernickety really and I savoured and enjoyed every second of this warm, all encompassing book that I thoroughly recommend.
Thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.
