A big welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Annie’s Summer by the Sea by Liz Eeles.
Annie’s Summer by the Sea is released in e-book on 27th March 2018 and is published by Bookouture. This is the third book in the series featuring Annie Trebarwith.
When Annie Trebarwith unexpectedly inherits Tregavara House, her much-loved family home atop the cliffs of Salt Bay, she begins to wonder: with all the good friends and warm memories she’s made in the village, could it be her forever home?
Luckily her gorgeous Poldark-lookalike boyfriend, Josh Pasco, has exactly the same idea. High on the Cornish cliffs he gets down on one knee, and Annie has everything she’s ever dreamed of.
But when a summer storm causes catastrophic damage to the beautiful but aging house, Annie and Josh are faced with tumbling tiles and a massive repair bill – and a roof that’s leaked straight onto her wedding gown…
Can the Salt Bay community save Annie’s house and her wedding – and give Annie the happy-ever-after she’s always wanted?

A big thank you to Noelle at Bookouture and Netgalley for my review copy of the book and for asking me to participate on the blog tour.
I actually read the first of this series when I was on holiday in Cornwall, so it was very apt and I fell immediately in love with Salt Bay and its inhabitants. It’s such a delight to be back amongst them all in this beautiful story.
This story moves on and we have Annie inheriting her home of the last few years, Tregavara House. Crumbling as it is with a bit of a temperamental roof, it’s where she feels at home as she shares a lot of the memories from the previous books here with Alice, Josh, Storm and Emily. Things have moved on slightly with Annie and Josh (aka Poldark) and they are planning their wedding. Obviously things go slightly wrong but this is where the lovely community step in. They are her extended family and I loved Liz Eeles descriptive writing of them. From Roger and Jennifer to lovely old Cyril they are special in their own way and after getting stuck into the previous books, they also feel like your extended family.
Liz Eeles has written a beautiful story full of emotion and I admit I did get teary eyed a few times (especially at the end and near the beginning), a lot of humour and most of all, a real sense of community spirit with all the residents of Salt Bay. I’ve said it before but I will say it again but I felt sad finishing this book but also glad that I have had the opportunity to read them!
I can highly recommend this lovely series!

Liz writes funny, feel-good romantic comedies set in Cornwall. She fell in love with the county during family holidays as a child, and has happy memories of building sandcastles in the rain, and listening to the foghorn – though the sun did come out sometimes.
Liz worked as a journalist for years and brought up a family on the south coast, all the while writing fiction on the quiet. After being short-listed in a couple of national novel-writing competitions, her dream of being a published author came true – and now she spends her days writing, and trying to convince her family it’s a ‘proper’ job.
When not writing, Liz likes walking by the sea, catching up with friends and binge-watching box sets.
