About this ebook

A heart-warming page-turner set on the Irish coast, where secrets hide, romance is waiting and there is every chance to make a new beginning…

Jasmine Delon feels completely lost: having just broken up with the man she thought was the love of her life, all she knows is that she can’t face living alone in her empty apartment in Paris.

When she turns up at her mother’s curiosity shop, nestled in Sandy Cove in Ireland, she hopes time with Sally will help heal her broken heart. Walks along the rugged coastline and nights under endless stars immediately make her feel at peace, and then she meets Aiden, a handsome chef in town, and sparks fly between them.

But a lot has changed since Jasmine last saw her mother. Sally is happier than ever with a charming new man in her life and Jasmine’s not sure where she fits in. Then she’s told about the ruins of an old village in a place nearby called Wild Rose Bay. The locals say it holds secrets about her mother’s side of the family…

Is delving into their history the thing that can bring Jasmine and Sally back together or will it drive them further apart? And is Jasmine brave enough to give in to the call of the Irish sea for another chance at love?

Daughters of Wild Rose Bay is a warm, feel-good novel set on Ireland’s gorgeous Atlantic coast. For fans of Sheila O’Flanagan, Debbie Macomber, Mary Alice Monroe and anyone who loves a story about second chances.

Taking time with two new characters, this is primarily the story of Jasmine Delon and her mother, Sally O’Rourke. While reeling from a disastrous relationship and her home in Paris, Jasmine arrives to find her Irish mother now eating raw foods, looking like a 60’s throwback and constantly talking of yoga and her yogi, and feeling like the distance between the two of them will never be breached. But, a welcome surprise in the form of Aiden, her ‘high school’ best friend and now chef of an exciting new restaurant in Sandy Cove gives her a sense of ‘possibilities’, even as Aiden’s boss Connor is the one she feels sparks for. Slowly Jasmine’s story unfolds as she meets more of the locals we’ve all come to know, and learns of her Irish roots, finds some relief in a tentative relationship with Connor, as both are reeling from their own failed last relationships. Throughout it all, Aiden is there to talk, banter and show her about – and the connection and feelings is solidly ‘comfortable’. There are moments when we meet all of the others in town, get a bit of history of the O’Rourke family, see Jasmine deal with some serious choices and worry for her mother’s apparent secrecy regarding a relationship that Jasmine feels is dangerous. Full of moments as we travel through the Kerry Ring, as well as find quiet and answers just in Sandy Cove, the story offers a small respite from the hustle and bustle, as well as the anonymity that is so often a part of today’s world. With plenty of laughs, surprises, tears and growth, the magic of Ireland and the potential of friends to become so very much more comes clearly to the forefront. A wonderful installment and chance to visit back in Sandy Cove with characters who have time for each other and are always welcoming. 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.
