Melody Rosewood loves her new home in idyllic Sandcastle Bay. The beautiful little cottage on the edge of Sunshine Beach, with its bright yellow door and view of the sea has captured her heart. And she loves being close by to her family and best friend Tori Graham.

Life by the sea is pretty much perfect, there’s just one thing missing…

Gorgeous Jamie Jackson, with his cheeky grin and adorable puppy, works as a sculptor opposite Melody’s jewellery shop. From the moment he and Melody meet sparks fly. But despite their instant attraction, a past heartache is holding Jamie back.

As Melody starts to make a life for herself in the close-knit, quirky seaside community, she realises Jamie could be the one for her. But as the two of them take a chance on romance, it’s one dating disaster after another. Are they destined to always be just good friends?

Or will Melody finally find her happily-ever-after in Sandcastle Bay?


I read book 3 of this series a little while back, so I'm doing it out of order but here goes.

This starts with Melody walking along the beach with her puppy hoping to bump into her crush, Jamie. They walk to work together every morning and Melody has plucked up the courage to finally ask Jamie out on a date but things don't entirely go to plan. As the two try and navigate a romance they have to deal with the rest of the village and their prying eyes.

I did struggle a little to get into this one. I think it's because these books are just so bright and cheerful. I do enjoy a bit of angst in my romances and this lacked that. 

Melody is a bit accident prone but Jamie likes that she's not perfect and though he's a little wary of love after his previous disasters they do make a really cute couple.

Sandcastle Bay sounds like a lovely little seaside village that I'd love to visit but unfortunately I don't think I'll be reading more of this authors work because they're not really working for me.
