If I had had more time I would have read this book in one sitting, I am sure of it. It's so hard to write a great review when you don't want to spoil anything! haha
So I have to start with saying how much I loved Whitehorse bay and Scotland has just made my list of places to visit in the near future.
Lexie, the MC, was my favourite type of character. Strong, tortured but sweet when she needs to be. Her child hood friend 'Tom' visits and because of his famous identity now, she agrees to help him blend in so nobody recognises him. They have instant chemistry and soon, Lexie finds herself supported by 'Tom''s words that she chase her dream of becoming a painter.
Of course, their love story gets many rode bumps in the way of Lexie's ex, who has been acting weird lately and hiding information from her. And we find that the two of them have unfinished business as well!
Emily wrote the love triangle perfectly, there was plenty of laughs and gasps (at least from me) as the story puddled into some surprising twists.
I was not expecting the heart wrenching moments that popped up, and they utterly griped me. I felt heartbroken at a scene or two, while wishing that Lexie ends up with my favourite, out of Jamie (her ex) or 'Tom'.
I would love to see this as a movie one day! Either on the television or big screen, it's the perfect Rom-Com.
Once again set in Scotland which brings a certain charm. This time we meet Lexy and her accompanying friends. Lexy has suffered tragedy and the loss of her parents has made her rather reserved and unable to love freely. Seven years later and she is still struggling.
She has a job in HR but yearns to be an artist, it’s only when a mysterious man arrives in the sleepy village and he begins to take notice of her that her confidence begins to grow. I found Tom incredibly pompous and didn’t like his attitude to Lexy but she seemed to relish his attention.
A lot of the story revolves around the local Pub and it conjures up a warm, friendly atmosphere, the daily coal fire was particularly welcoming. Lexy’s oldest friends run/work in the bar, Jamie is her best friend who she once dated and Graeme has a soft spot for her.
Like a lot of small villages there is a gossiper and the local ‘paper’ soon dishes up any dirt on the inhabitants. It is very close knit though and all the locals are particularly fond of Lexy. She is a typical red-head and often speaks before thinking, she comes across as naive but her heart is in the right place.
I loved the descriptions of the bay, the sea, the fields etc Emily’s writing is vivid and conjures the setting up nicely in the readers imagination. She writes with such a style that flows easily and it makes it a pleasure to read.
What secrets are lurking, will Lexy find love with anyone other than her pride and joy, Brian the dog? What connection is there between Hollywood and Whitehorse bay .. delve into this charming book and find out.
I really enjoyed it and recommend it to any one who loves a sweet romantic comedy.
This is the first of the author's books that I have encountered and so I really did not know what her writing style was. I was delighted to say the least. On point character development. From the moment that Lexy was directly introduced, I knew that I would like her. The supporting characters are endearing and I could see people I know or have encountered in them.
Scotland. I don't come across many books set in Scotland so this was a treat. It was a wonderful backdrop to the story and became a character in its own right. I found myself daydreaming at times. I think that a trip to Scotland may have now worked its way onto my bucket list.
Every once in a while I come across a book that can be read multiple times. This is one of those books now on that list. It was a delightful read. I was so immersed in it that I was sad in a way that it was over. I am definitely intrigued as to the future progression of the characters.
Thank you to the author for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review. I am rating this book Five Stars because it made me want more. I finished it and automatically looked into other books that the author has written. I highly recommend it.
