This is such a beautiful and layered love story!

The characters are so well written and so easy to fall in love with. I found Daisy’s story really intriguing and was instantly hooked and eager to find out what had happened in her past, and what drove her back to Hope Cove.

I absolutely adored the growing connection between Blake and Daisy and found it had the perfect balance of drama, romance, humour, and steam. Their journey definitely had its highs and lows, and Elle did a fantastic job in bringing these characters to life and really immersing the reader in their developing relationship.

The secondary characters were all well written and added value to the read… and what can I say about Betsy… for me she nearly stole the show! What a gorgeous fur baby! I loved the bond she had with Blake and Daisy, and that she carried through the whole story.

This was a beautifully written story about heartache, loss, finding yourself, and true love set in a gorgeous small town. If you love emotional reads with the perfect amount of steam, a relatable and loveable heroine, and a drool-worthy hero then look no further.

Amazing work by Elle! And I absolutely can’t wait for her next read.
