About this ebook

“The perfect escapist summer read… I completely devoured this book in just one sitting… I adored this book from start to finish. It has been the perfect escape.” Book Love, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Nothing beats falling in love under the sun, with the sand beneath your feet. This gorgeous, feel-good, and heartwarming summer escape from the bestselling author of The Summer House is perfect for fans of Mary Alice Monroe, Susan Mallery and Nancy Thayer.

For Sydney Flynn, her treasured family home, Starlight Cottage, is her sanctuary. The house on the white sands of Firefly Beach, surrounded by glittering turquoise waters, is the perfect place for her fresh start. That’s until her knees almost buckle at the sight of Nate Henderson.

As teenagers, Sydney and Nate whispered sweet nothings and promised “forever” to each other. Sydney thought they were perfect. She never imagined that her childhood sweetheart was going to end things out of the blue and with no explanation, ruthlessly driving away from her and never looking back. She has spent the last decade piecing herself back together, and trying to figure out exactly what went wrong.

And now the man who ripped apart her heart is back. The down-to-earth son of a fisherman she used to know, forever in beach t-shirts and flip flops, is well and truly gone – in his place is a successful songwriter in a swanky designer suit who’s totally out of place in the small town she calls home.

All of a sudden, Nate wants to make it up to Sydney, yet how can she find it in her heart to forgive him? But when a new development threatens her beloved Starlight Cottage, Sydney needs all the help she can get, and her plan of avoiding Nate is suddenly impossible. Can they overcome their past to save Firefly Beach and the house that holds so many memories for them? Or will the town they adore, and the love they had for one another, be lost forever?

full review at I am, Indeed With heart and plenty of time, some obsessions from Sydney and several grand gestures from Nate that show his heart, and the explanations of why he left all those years ago, the story is easy to follow and you’ll find yourself invested in their story and relationship, all the while hoping Sydney will see what’s in front of her. Often. Hale manages to provide a sense of reality and plausibility for the many issues that arise from grief and anger, to self-esteem that’s been dinged, and even the desire to protect and provide for her son. With heart, a threat that is bigger than them all to the cottage where memories have provided the touchstone for the family and lots of love and acceptance, the story is a great read and sure to please many. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I received an ARC of The House on Firefly Beach from NetGalley and Bookouture for my honest review. The House On Firefly Beach is the second book from Jenny Hale in her Firefly Beach series. Sydney and Nate grew up together and they thought they made plans together until the day Nate just left with no explanation to Sydney. Sydney went on to marry and had a son Robby. The marriage failed and she went on in her life but always had Nate in her heart. Nate returns to her life and he knows he needs to explain why he left. Jenny Hale tells the story of their lives and does it perfectly,
