About the Book:
Sun, secrets, and a handsome stranger… Everything is about to change for Ruby Penhaligon.
Step into the stunning Indigo Cove on the beautiful Cornish coast and lose yourself in a page-turning summer romance about second chances and creating your own kind of happiness. Perfect for fans of Nicola May, Sarah Morgan and Cathy Bramley.
Thirty-year-old Ruby is done with love: no more drama, no more complications, no more men. She’s living life for herself and that’s just the way she likes it. But her whole world is turned upside down when her grandmother calls to say her beloved pottery business is failing, and she might lose her beautiful little Cornish house by the sea. She needs Ruby to come back to Cornwall and save the day…
Returning to Indigo Cove stirs up memories Ruby would rather forget, but she’s determined to save her grandmother’s home. As the summer hots up so does the pressure on Ruby and she’s in need of a distraction. Although quite literally walking into Gabe Roskilly, the sexy and brooding owner of the local brewery, wasn’t part of her game plan.
Ruby tries to ignore her attraction to Gabe but it’s impossible to avoid the tall, dark, handsome stranger as Gabe is at the centre of village life. And when Ruby’s plans for the little Cornish house start to fall apart, she discovers Gabe might be the one person who can help her. Ruby’s promise to stay single is tested to the limit. But are Gabe’s intentions all good… or is Ruby about to get her heart broken again?
Can Ruby save her grandmother’s cottage and find true happiness this summer? Or will secrets from the past ruin everything?

Donna loves a happy ending and is never happier than when she’s escaping into a romance novel or movie. When she’s not reading or writing she’ll probably be found hoovering … or negotiating with her two teenagers about who is doing the washing up.

Ruby has returned to Cornwall and Indigo Cove to help her Grandmother who has called to ask for help. With her pottery business failing and the possibility of losing her beautiful little house by the sea, Lila is hoping that Ruby will be able to help her to get back on her feet again. So as the summer heats up, Ruby is determined to do everything she can to put things right. With memories she’d rather forget beginning to stir, she feels in need of a distraction, which soon comes in the form of Gabe, the sexy and brooding owner of the local brewery.
