Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Romance author Ellie Malouff writes stories that pull at the heart and turn on the imagination. When she’s not writing, she's probably wrangling one or both of her ornery cats, chatting with her sister about Reality TV, or trying to get a word in with her boisterous family. She's never said no to a cheese danish, is a certified hockey fangirl, and calls Ireland her home away from home.

Ellie is the author of the Love Overseas series, taking readers on a romantic journey to Hawaii, England, and Ireland. And most recently the Colorado Storm Hockey series.

4.0 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
By TheQDBibliophile on October 1, 2018

Ellie Malouff has a knack for painting such vivid portraits of the world she's creating for her stories that you can't help but feel like you're there. I felt as though if I breathed deeply enough I might catch a whiff of that English country air.

In this book, Cara Montgomery leaves England when she's a child only to return as a twenty- something to attend her grandfather Trevor's funeral. They're estranged but through no fault of hers. Upon meeting Reid, her grandfather's nephew by marriage, sparks fly. Reid is mistrusting of Cara's motives considering she was named co-executor of the estate and has been absent for so long, while Cara's heart is wallowing in guilt and regret for having neglected her relationship with her grandfather. Despite all this, they can't seem to stay away from each other. Being stuck together at Trevor's estate to sort through items for auction, Cara and Reid's love/hate relationship turns into something more. If only there weren't some giant speed bumps along the way that might derail them completely...

My only qualm with this particular story, even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, was how quickly Reid and Cara went from "I don't trust you" to "I love you. You're the love of my life". It didn't quite fit the character's personalities (i.e. I could see them falling in love but the transition to such a declaration felt a bit abrupt). I was also worried I wouldn't be able to reconnect with Reid after the whole painting incident but Ellie made me fall back in love with him and I was so happy with how the conflicts were resolved at the end.
Can't wait for the next book! 

Note: These are stand-alone books in a series with a mention of previous characters. You don't need to necessarily read them in order though I do recommend it! Between the Waves is set in Hawaii, Be What Love Is is set in England and the next book is going to be in Ireland. Go add these to your TBR and grab your passport while you're at it!
