This book ticked all the points that I wanted to read today.

Coming back home

Second chance romance

Small town, close community

Strong main character who develops strong relationships

Friendship and warm feelings

Emotions in the dialogues

Lovable characters and smooth writing.

All these points made me gobble up this book and feel happy at the end of the read.

Ella was the midwife who was ditched at the altar, in quite a drastic manner. She needed to find her mental balance, so back to Cornwall and ex boyfriend Dan. Would she stay back at Cornwall and find her happy ending?

Duh!! Of course. This is not a spoiler alert. It is a Jo Bartlett book, had to have a happy ending. A bit more spark between the main characters would have made my day.

Nevertheless a sweet read over a lazy Sunday afternoon.

A fresh start…

Midwife Ella Mehenick left the small Cornish town of Port Agnes for London and never looked back. But when her seemingly perfect life crashes down around her, there’s only one place she can heal her battered heart – the place she once called home.

A new arrival…

Ella is quickly welcomed into the small community midwife team and loves her new job caring for mums and their precious babies – it’s what she does best! But being back also means facing ex-flame Dan Ferguson…the first man to break her heart.

A second chance at love?

Dan is still as gorgeous as ever, but he’s never forgiven Ella for leaving. And now she’s back it’s clear that there is unfinished business between them. As Ella settles into her new/old life, she can’t stop the memories of how she once loved Dan so completely – and maybe never stopped.

Maybe coming home to Cornwall is Ella’s chance to love again…


Publication Date: April 2021

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
