A Wedding At Sandy Cove by Bella Osborne is a most delightful contemporary novel that enchanted me from the start.
There are the themes of being yourself, being brave and grabbing your dreams. Too often there are those who want to squash us. The novel shows we need to confront the bullies and not let them put us down.
We all need good friends who support us through life. It is delightful to witness two friends bouncing off each other. Their verbal exchanges are charming.
I loved the reference which Lucy made to Turkish delight which transported me in my mind to the White Witch in The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe.
There are many different relationships within the novel. We learn that we must not interfere in the relationships of others.
We witness different parenting styles. The love we have for our children shines through. They never stop being our children, no matter how old thy get.
The novel is set in Norfolk. We see the devastation on the crumbling Norfolk coast. Bella Osborne has perfectly captured the fear as the tension ramps up.
I loved the inclusion of Pirate, the one-eyed cat. Pets turn a house into a home.
Bella Osborne wrote a really light-hearted fun-filled novel with some serious themes. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I really loved the section at the end that told the reader what the brides were doing now.
A Wedding At Sandy Cove was another fabulous offering from Bella Osborne.
I received a free copy from Net Galley for a blog tour with Rachel’s Random Resources. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
A Wedding At Sandy Cove
Escape to Sandy Cove, where the scent of summer and the sound of wedding bells are in the air!
Ella makes brides’ dreams come true – there’s no dress she can’t make perfect with her sewing skills and some sparkle. But Ella’s own love life is no fairy tale. Recently dumped, surrounded by fussy brides and with the prospect of wearing a hideous brown bridesmaids dress to her friend’s wedding, Ella feels more alone than ever so agrees to go on a blind date.
A mix up on the night introduces her to Kit.
Kit is definitely not the man she was supposed to meet, but he could end up changing her life in ways she never thought possible…
A perfectly funny, feel-good summer romance that will whisk you away to sandy beaches and a seaside wedding. Fans of Cathy Bramley, Katie Fforde and Milly Johnson will adore Bella Osborne.
