When a jilted romance novelist escapes to a small beach town, the last thing she expected to find was the start of an even better love story.
In the wake of a broken engagement and the death of her last surviving family member, sweet romance novelist Maya Reynolds moves to the haven of Coral Cove, North Carolina, to take over her great-aunt’s toy store. Some of her grief is immediately eased by imaginative eight-year-old Ashlyn Tanner, who talks her into adopting a kitten and inspires Maya to create a princess tea-party room in the store.
Ashlyn’s dad, local veterinarian Brody Tanner, is quickly smitten by the newest resident of his hometown. As a single parent, he sacrifices a lot in order to give Ashlyn the world, so a romantic entanglement with Maya is not a distraction he is looking for.
As the three develop a deepening bond in the seaside town where Maya experienced some of her happiest childhood memories, clouds cast a shadow over Maya’s hope for the future: an impossible deadline looms over her next novel, a long-held secret by her late mother about Maya’s absent father comes to light, and Brody’s resolve to avoid romance seems unbreakable.
But together, they just might discover that sometimes happy endings happen outside the pages of Maya’s novels too.
Advance praise for The View from Coral Cove:
“Grieving and brokenhearted, novelist Maya Reynolds moves to Coral Cove, the place where she felt happiest as a child. An old family secret upends Maya’s plan for a fresh start, as does her longing to love and be loved. The View from Coral Cove is Amy Clipston at her best—a tender story of hope, healing, and a love that’s meant to be.” —Suzanne Woods Fisher, bestselling author of On a Summer Tide
My Review:I could not put this book down anytime I had to I tried to hurry back to it, it was so good. The author has a way of making you feel like you are catching up with friends with this book. I loved Ashlyn she was so fun to read about she was a pistol and I feel totally helped make the story what it was. I really liked Maya and Brody each had baggage they had to deal with but each was after two things healing and love. I loved how each page the author draws you in and throws in a twist that while you know something is up you are happy with the way things turn. I loved that this book was a good clean read and that it would be suitable for all ages. I could not recommend this book more!!!
