I’m delighted to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for the lovely Summer at Firefly Beach by Jenny Hale. Thank you to Noelle Holten and Bookouture for giving me the opportunity to read and review this gorgeous summer read.
About the book:
A totally gorgeous, feel-good summer story from the bestselling author of The Summer House. You’ll smile, sob, and be swept off your feet with this unforgettable beach romance…
Hallie Flynn’s favorite place in the world is her great Aunt Clara’s beautiful beachside house, with its inviting wraparound porch and enchanting views across the sparkling turquoise ocean. For Hallie, going to Firefly Beach, filled with magical childhood memories, feels like coming home. But all that is about to change…
In one moment Hallie’s world is turned upside down. She’s left broken-hearted when her adored Aunt Clara passes away.
As always, Aunt Clara has thought of everything. In her last letter she included the bucket list Hallie wrote when she was twelve-years-old—and Clara’s final wish is for her to complete it. For once, Hallie decides not to hesitate. Stepping away from her dead-end job and predictable schedule, she embraces Aunt Clara’s words.
Spending the summer at Firefly Beach, Hallie encounters old friends and begins to remember the things that matter most to her. All the time her childhood friend Ben Murray is there, supporting her every step of the way. But following the bucket list isn’t an easy journey. And if that wasn’t all, a run in with wealthy Gavin Wilson, a newcomer to Firefly Beach, leaves her questioning her future, and facing something buried deep in her heart which she’d rather not admit to.
Will Hallie be able to complete the list and change her life? Or will the secret she’s been keeping destroy her new beginning—and the chance to fall in love?
An emotional, gripping page-turner about family secrets, re-discovering who you are, and the magic of finding true love. Perfect for fans of Mary Alice Monroe, Nancy Thayer and Susan Mallery.
About the author:
When I graduated college, one of my friends said, “Look out for this one; she’s going to be an author one day.” Despite being an avid reader and a natural storyteller, it wasn’t until that very moment that the idea of writing novels occurred to me.
Sometimes our friends can see the things that we can’t.
While I didn’t start straight away, that comment sowed a seed and several years, two children, and hundreds of thousands of words later, I completed a novel that I felt was worthy of publication. The result was Coming Home for Christmas, a heart-warming story about the magic of love at Christmas, and 2017 TV movie on The Hallmark Channel.
The rest is history.
When I’m not writing, I’m a mother of two boys and a wife to a very supportive husband.
Jenny Hale is an author whose books never fail to deliver and Summer at Firefly Beach is no exception. The perfect summer read, it is a heartwarming tale of love, family and friendship.
After suffering the devastating loss of her beloved Aunt Clara, Hallie returns to Firefly Beach, the place of her childhood memories, to try to come to terms with her grief and to carry out Clara’s final wish of completing the bucket list she wrote when she was twelve years old.
But following the bucket list isn’t easy, with many obstacles to overcome before Hallie can even begin to think about moving forward with her life, including having to face something she has buried deep down inside that she would rather not admit to.
This was the perfect summer beach read, a romance that both moved and delighted, taking me on an emotional journey of rediscovery and family secrets.
Beautifully written as always, Summer at Firefly Beach is a gripping page turner of a novel that I enjoyed immensely.
