Sunny Days & Sea Breezes – Carole Matthews ★★★★★

Blurb; Jodie Jackson is all at sea, in every sense.

On a ferry bound for the Isle of Wight, she’s leaving her London life, her career, and her husband behind. She’d like a chance to turn back the clocks, but she’ll settle for some peace and quiet on her brother Bill’s beautifully renovated houseboat, Sunny DaysBut from the moment Jodie steps aboard her new home, it’s clear she’ll struggle to keep herself to herself.

Jodie soon delights in her newfound freedom. But out of mind isn’t out of sight, and when her old life comes knocking Jodie is forced to face reality. Will she answer the call or choose a life filled with Sunny Days and Sea Breezes?

My Review; I’ve always been a fan of Carole Matthews books and when I saw this one released and on sale for £7 I couldn’t say no especially with the heatwave we were having at the time. No holiday or beach this year? Bring the holiday and beach to you with this beautiful story. It was just what I needed some escapism.

The setting is perfection. I fell in love. Jodie needs a break from her life so off she goes to her brothers boat in the Isle of White. She never expected to fall in love with it, the town and the people. Will she stay? Will she go back home? I literally devoured this book! Raced through it. A little holiday away for my mind. Beautifully written. Cannot recommend this enough.

A well deserved five stars from me. It has also gone into my top twenty of year reads. Perfection. Don’t have a bad word to say about it other than it had to end.
