Summer at 23 the Strand – Linda Mitchelmore ★★★★

Blurb: Escape to the seaside this summer!
After actress Martha’s painful break-up hits the headlines, the warm golden sands and sparkling seas of Elberry Cove are the perfect escape from the paparazzi!

Nestled amongst a gorgeous line of brightly-coloured beach chalets, Number 23 The Strand is a home from home, a secret paradise where she can slowly begin to piece her heart back together.

When it’s finally time to leave, Martha decides to leave a special gift for the next guest. It’s a small act of kindness that starts a magical tradition all summer long…

A delightfully uplifting holiday read, perfect for fans of Lilly Bartlett, Tilly Tennant and Eve Devon.

My Review; Another light, easy and escapism of a read. Again another buddy read with Mel from Melanie’s Reads. A perfect summer read, escape to the seaside. This story is a little different though as it’s lots of little stories all in one story. The same setting being the seaside cabin at 23 the Strand but with different holiday makers spending a total of two weeks each time there. As the reader you will see a whole range of different people spending time here, their stories, their families and their pasts. Each story is beautiful and unique though. I loved it all.

The ending wraps ups all the individual stories perfectly giving the reader closure on some of the stories. There’s also a cute little tradition that goes on within 23 the Strand where the previous tenants/holidayers leave a gift for the next person which I loved. A beautiful collection of short stories. A new author to myself, very impressed. A well deserved four stars from me, would recommend. A holiday for the mind.
