#Blogtour #Bookreview Coming Home to Heritage Cove by Helen J. Rolfe @rararesources @HJRolfe


What they say: Welcome to Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea brimming with character, community and friendship, and the perfect place to fall in love this summer… Melissa rushes back to Heritage Cove when Barney, the man who’s been like a father figure to her since she was a little girl, ends up in hospital. After an absence of five years, her return isn’t going tobe easy, especially when she bumps into Harvey, the love of her life and the man she’s never beenable to forget. For reasons he couldn’t explain at the time, Harvey changed his mind about going with Melissa to start afresh as they’d planned, and life moved on for the both of them. But with Melissa back in the village and determined to stick around to help Barney, they can’t avoid each other forever. Melissa knows she let so many people down by staying away for so long, but she and Harvey blame each other for what happened and neither of them is willing to admit to being in the wrong. When Barney insists on cancelling the Wedding Dress Ball, the charity fundraiser he holds every year in the stunning barn on his property, Melissa and Harvey realise they’re going to have to pull together. Otherwise the man they once knew might be gone forever. And when they unearth a secret Barney has never shared with anyone, they go in search of answers to not only ensure the ball runs this summer, but to bring back the Barney they know and love. Back in the cove after all this time, Melissa gets to see the life she left behind and it’s time to deal with what it was that drove her away in the first place. Beneath the summer sunshine in Heritage Cove, the sea sparkles, the heat rises and new love, reconciliations and the answers to an old love story could bring changes for everyone.

The Review: I was thrilled to jump into this, as we arrived at the village of Heritage Cove with our lead, Melissa, who has been given bad news about a person who was dear to her many years ago and who she still keeps in contact with. The settings got me straight away, motion picture technicolour, straight out of a movie scenes that actually were the norm throughout this lovely book.

There are multiple stories in this but the one that stole my heart was that of Barney, the old man in question, who has a few secrets that impact both of our leads, Melissa and Harvey, who, whilst trying to figure out Barney and why this year he’s decided he can’t run the Wedding Dress Ball, an event he’s handled for many years, are each trying to figure out each other. I was in from the start to the end of this beautiful book, with vivid descriptions that drew me in a dn held me. I had a few niggles throughout, but they were me being pernickety really and I savoured and enjoyed every second of this warm, all encompassing book that I thoroughly recommend.

Thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.

Rating: 4.5/5
