Jack has served his country and seen some atrocities that stay with him as much as the injuries he's suffered during his service. He is making a more peaceful life for himself including doing jobs for his landlady, Eve's Aunt Mary, and working at the local greyhound rescue centre. He's protective of the old lady and can't initially understand why Eve hasn't visited her in years. . . .
The author's characters, their actions, reactions and experiences explore different aspects of this in a way that makes it easy for the readers to empathise with them and really made me hope no one ever actually needs to go through it all! As Eve and Jack slowly learn to trust each other and share their past, it is so heart breaking at times, but there's always that glimmer of hope shining through the darkness, with love lighting the way to happier times if only they'll learn to rely on each other.
This is one of the most emotional stories I've read. The author certainly knows about the problems which can be associated with teaching, especially the pressures and stress which can easily intrude on people's lives both at and away from school. Taking stock of your life, making life changing decisions is never easy but sometimes is essential to help someone work to live rather than live to work. Getting that balance is crucial to mental health and happiness. This isn't the usual light-hearted, fun read from this highly talented author but it is a very moving story and one that is well worth reading. As someone who has taken early retirement from teaching, I found it poignant at time and I can easily identify people I know who might easily have suffered in a similar way to Eve. I hope that anyone in highly stressful jobs who reads this emotive story finds it cathartic and it enables them, too, to determine what is really important in their lives and to move on to live a loving, happier and hopefully less stressful life. We all need somewhere like Conwenna Cove and the people there! No, this isn't romantic comedy, but it is a thoroughly engaging read, a journey from despair, inspirational and very moving romance - I loved it and highly recommend it! I hope there will be more stories set in this location and community in future - and can't wait to read them if there are!
Mary has a tenant, Jack, who lives in the cottage next door. Eve isn't looking for romance and the same goes for Jack, but there's something between them from the moment they meet. They've both been hurt in the past and are afraid to give someone their heart. Jack works with dogs and soon Eve falls in love with one of the dogs he's taking care of. Mary's positive attitude, spending time with Jack, the dogs and the beautiful scenery of Conwenna Cove have a healing effect on Eve. She isn't there to stay though, will Eve be able to recharge her batteries enough to go back to work?
Summer at Conwenna Cove is a wonderful romantic story. Eve is incredibly sweet, but she's a perfectionist and doesn't know when to stop. She has to discover that there's more to life than work. Jack and Mary show her what it's like to live and I enjoyed watching her recover. Eve has her ups and downs, but slowly she finds happiness again. I kept hoping she'd follow her heart instead of striving to be great at a job that makes her feel empty instead of fulfilled. I loved how Darcie Boleyn approaches this thought-provoking subject, with empathy and a lovely sense of humor.
Jack is a kind guy. He used to be a marine and is now working with dogs at an animal shelter. I really liked the animals in Summer at Conwenna Cove, they're adorable. I could easily picture their personalities and loved them straight away. Jack is patient and caring, which makes him perfect for his job. He has many talents and it was fun to find out more about them. There's an instant connection between him and Eve, which is something I liked very much as well. I couldn't wait to discover if they'd find their happily ever after.
Conwenna Cove is a beautiful calm setting. The people are kind and the surroundings are gorgeous. The inhabitants are feeling well due to the soothing effect of the place and the absence of stress is a joy to read about. I immediately fell in love with this special town and enjoyed Darcie Boleyn's vivid descriptions of the sea, the rocks, the countryside and the docks. I absolutely loved the warm and welcoming feeling it gave me. It's the ideal setting to find true love and it's a strong foundation for a story. Summer at Conwenna Cove is a fantastic dreamy and charming book.
