It feels odd writing about a book with green grass and beautiful flowers on its cover while my home is currently caked in snow, but today I have something to look forward to beyond warmer weather. Back in 2019 I was introduced to the remarkable work of Liz Eeles with her first novel in the Cosy Kettle series, New Starts and Cherry Tarts at the Cosy Kettle. Since then, I’ve devoured every single one of her books. Whatever she writes, I’m almost guaranteed to love it. Best of all? She has a new book coming out this month. I can’t wait.
Today I’m waiting for…
From the publisher:
From the attic of Driftwood House there are stunning views of the deep green sea and sapphire sky. But Rosie can’t tear her eyes away from the faded photograph in her hands, and the words written on the back that will change everything…
Back in the tiny seaside village of Heaven’s Cove after the death of her mother, all Rosie Merchant wants is to hide her tears, rent out her childhood home, and get back to her ‘real’ life, away from the gossiping villagers and wild Devon weather she escaped from years ago.
She’s surprised to find a smiling man in hiking boots – local farmer Liam – waiting on the stone doorstep. His kind offer to help clear crumbling, isolated Driftwood House is hard to refuse, and despite Rosie’s determination not to let anyone get close, soon they’re walking and laughing together along the clifftops. As clouds scud across the endless sky and green waves crash against the shore, Rosie is reminded that nowhere is more beautiful than home.
Then, up in the attic of Driftwood House, Rosie stumbles across a photo which exposes the heart-stopping truth about how her mother came to live at Driftwood House years ago… and Liam only seems concerned about the implications for his own nearby farm. Did he know this painful secret all along, and should she run from Heaven’s Cove for good? Or will facing up to her devastating family history mean Rosie can finally put down roots in this beautiful place?
