About this ebook

Run away to Sea Salt Bay, where the sand is warm and soft, the sea is a perfect blue, and a candy-coloured waffle house is about to change Sadie’s life…

For as long as she can remember, Sadie’s grandparents have run the waffle house on the pier at Sea Salt Bay. With its pretty painted chairs, sweet smells, and the warm advice of her beloved grandparents, the waffle house is like a second home

But when Sadie’s grandfather dies, leaving her grandmother without an anchor, Sadie must make a difficult decision. She quits her job and moves back home, determined to keep things going. The trouble is, she knows nothing about running a business, and learning at a million miles an hour with a shop full of hungry people isn’t easy. When she nearly burns the waffle house down, she has to admit she needs to get some help.

Her ex-boyfriend Declan promises to be there for her but Sadie worries that getting too close is a mistake – especially as he has a new girlfriend now. And anyway she’s just met newcomer Luke, with his gorgeous suntan and mellow voice…

Sadie’s family have always loved Declan and they’re not too sure about Luke, leaving Sadie unsure which way to turn. A terrible accident at sea forces her to look into her heart, but what if it’s already too late to tell the right man that she loves him?

If you love stolen kisses under the pier, walking along spray-capped shores eating ice cream, and books by Lucy Diamond, Jill Mansell and Jenny Colgan, you will fall in love with this romantic, heart-breaking read.

Full Review at I am, Indeed There’s no secret that I love a Tilly Tennant story – some more than others, true, but I’m always up for the read. There’s something in knowing that things, no matter how dire they become, will be better by the end. Back and forth with Sadie’s worries about her feelings for both Declan and Luke, her struggles with the shop and her grandmother’s increasing illness, the reality that she doesn’t know diddly about managing the business, and plenty of moments where family upheaval becomes the center point of the story leave readers wondering about the happy ending here. Not quite a rom-com, and not entirely a romance, the characters, their histories, the small town and the community feel make this a story well worth reading. It puts you in the center of the small community where tourism is a mainstay, and everyone knows (and has suggestions about) you. 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.

Sadie doesn’t know where her heart lies both romantically and professionally. When her grandfather suddenly dies her family know her grandmother cannot carry on running the Waffle House that has been a fixture of Sea Salt Bay pier for as long as people can remember. Sadie can see how painful it will be for her grandmother to give up her beloved Waffle House and wants so badly to support her keep it running. This was really easy to read with some well defined characters and I liked the way it played out, not everything does work out how you want in life and I think parts of this reflected that yet it still manages to be positive and heartwarming. I would love to find out how Sadie progresses from this, hopefully there might be another Sea Salt Bay book to come
