About this book…

In a gorgeous Cornish village, two brokenhearted people fall head over heels. But can the magic of Conwenna Cove heal the hurt of the past? A feel-good summer romance perfect for fans of Holly Martin, Phillipa Ashley and Jenny Hale.

Eve has a glittering career, a loving husband and a future. But a terrible twist of fate means she loses it all, and with nowhere left to turn she flees to her Aunt Mary’s home in Cornwall. The last thing on her mind is romance – until she meets Jack.

Jack has seen the worst things people can do to each other and realised he is better off alone. He settles in Conwenna Cove, and saves his affections for the rescue dogs he cares for. But when Eve arrives in the village he can’t deny his attraction to her.

Eve and Jack are both scared to trust, but when they come together it’s impossible for either to ignore their feelings. Can they put their fear aside and learn to love again?

Summer at Conwenna Cove is an emotional and heart-warming holiday read about being brave enough to take a chance on love.

My review…

What an absolutely perfect cover for Darcie Boleyns newest book! It just makes me want to jump straight into that beach scene and run along along the sand, with that leggy greyhound racing alongside me towards that beautiful blue sea. It promises treats galore waiting for the reader between its pages and, oh my goodness, does it deliver!

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore this authors books but I was rather concerned when I saw that this new one was set in Cornwall! Much as I adore Cornwall and have spent many happy holidays there with my family, there have been A LOT of books set there recently! So I’m so pleased to be able to say that this book was like a beautifully fresh breath of Cornish air for me as it transported the reader into the relaxing summer sunshine of Conwenna Cove.

I fell in love with Eve and Jack as soon as I met them and then as the book progressed, I fell in love again-this time with Mary and a whole kennel full of rescue dogs! Seeing Eve gradually become stress free and happy as she falls in love, first with her aunts village and then with Jack and Gabe, was enchanting to watch. And as she learnt to let go of her feelings and open her heart up to the Cornish magic, we are also given an insight to the heartbreak that lead to Eve’s emotional shutdown. It’s a tale of second chances and this theme is repeated throughout various threads of the storyline to heartwarming effect.

Summer at Conwenna Cove was as sweet and satisfying as a cream tea. It was such a feel good romance that it came as a bit of a shock to me that I ended up sobbing for the last 15% of the book!! I mean, how the hell does Darcie Boleyn do it?? My feelings were all over the place as unexpected plot twists, combined with my own personal triggers, came together to create an emotional maelstrom…..And I loved every minute of it! A perfect summer romance that will stay with you long after the tourists have packed up and gone home. Another winner for the fabulous Darcie Boleyn!

Meet the author…

Darcie Boleyn
Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop
