“Guilt wrenched Kiki’s insides. It shouldn’t have been the shattering of her own dreams to spur her into actions. She should of been braver, acted sooner.”
A second chance by the sea?
When Kiki Jackson’s marriage falls to pieces, there’s only one place that she knows she can escape to – her sister’s little guesthouse in Butterfly Cove.
But she’s worried that turning up on bride-to-be Mia’s doorstep, especially with her two adorable children in tow, will spoil her sister’s imminent wedding plans!
Luckily, handsome neighbour Aaron Spenser offers to share his new cottage with Kiki until she’s back on her feet. And as the wedding draws closer, Kiki realises that Butterfly Cove may be offering her little family more than just a new home…
Maybe this is where her new life begins…?
I initially started reading this book when I was looking for a feel good romance and it didn’t disappoint. It starts off with showing Kiki as a bit of a doormat to her husband who unfortunately is a horrible human being. After discovering her beloved husbands affair she snaps into action, divorces him, rather sneakily may I add, and moves her and her children down to her sister’s at Butterfly Cove. This is where Kiki begins to shine as she takes control of her own life and makes the best out of a bad situation. The children are with out a doubt adorable and it was great to see not only Kiki’s development as the book went on but also her children as they come to terms with being away from their waste of space father. Aaron himself is far to perfect for a character and while he did have his flaws I didn’t really feel as if we saw as much development for him as Kiki, but it didn’t necessarily detract from the story. The story was relatively straight forward with one or two side stories going on that set you up for the next book in the series. (This is actually the second book in the series which I didn’t realise going into it, but it works just fine as a standalone). There were not really any ‘surprises’ in the main story and though I expected the ending it didn’t get their exactly how I imagined. Either way a good beach read.
