Many thanks to Noelle Holten and publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Having read the first book in the series, it was easy for me to get into the spirit of book 2. This was Roisin’s story.
When her husband Cian got the camper van as a romantic getaway and named it Rita, his ex-girlfriend (an absolute no-no!!), she knew that things were at a breakpoint where her husband did not know what she wanted. They decided to go on a break with each other. He went off in the camper van with his best friend, and she moved to Sandy Cove to help her pregnant sister Maeve with the renovations of Willow House. But then came a complication known as Declan and Cian came back and Roisin had to decide what she wanted from her life.
Sussane O’Leary has written another beautiful book filled with emotions and turmoil. It was fun to see the ebb and flow between the two sisters. Roisin was an interesting character, I liked the way she was a bit bossy, a bit insecure but a whole lot of fun. There was a bit of mystery too when her personal life was splashed in media, and she had to get to the bottom of it. It brought a twist to the story too.
Susanne has done a beautiful job in describing Sandy Cove, I found myself constantly drawn to it. The relationships and friendships shown were quite heartwarming. This was a beautiful story of family, friendship, and marriage. It was a light read, but it was still filled with loads of emotions which touched my heart.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher Bookouture, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Susanne O’Leary is the bestselling author of fifteen novels, mainly in the romantic fiction genre. She has also written three crime novels and two in the historical fiction genre. She has been the wife of a diplomat (still is), a fitness teacher and a translator. She now writes full-time from either of two locations, a ramshackle house in County Tipperary, Ireland or a little cottage overlooking the Atlantic in Dingle, County Kerry. When she is not scaling the mountains of said counties (including MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, featured in Full Irish), or keeping fit in the local gym, she keeps writing, producing a book every six months.
Roisin McKenna and her husband Cian are taking time apart. Unsure of what she wants, Roisin’s prayers are answered when she receives a call from her sister Maeve who is desperate for her help.
Roisin heads to Sandy Cove to help Maeve restore their aunt’s gorgeous tumbledown mansion Willow House and soon all she has time to focus on are its crumbling walls. Despite a shocking announcement from Maeve and hidden secrets in the house’s rafters, Roisin begins to feel a sense of self she’s been missing for years.
The ties that bind Roisin to her husband seem to be unfurling in the Irish wind, when she unexpectedly stumbles into a mysterious man on the beach. Suddenly, she’s swept up in the idea of another life she could lead…
The restoration may have brought the sisters back together, but as a storm rolls over the coast Roisin feels sure she must make a choice. Will her time at Willow House teach her the precious lessons she needs to return home or has the cove called to her in ways she’d never imagined it could?
