Home is where the heart is…
Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.
But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his tiny dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.
With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many news ones…
Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!
Thank you to the Author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Now this was exactly the book I needed while coming in to Winter! I love me a good rom-com and this book definitely delivered!
We start of by meeting Holly who ends up returning to her dearly departed grandmothers house Gigi in Wishington Bay. It’s there she meets Gabe and that’s when the fun begins. I have to say I adored all the characters in the book and just had a real blast getting to know them! I think this is one of the few books that actually had me smiling throughout while trying to race through the book to find out what happens. Now this is a book you do pretty much know how it’s going to end but this didn’t really matter as the journey to get there was so entertaining. The writing made it so Wishington Bay is somewhere I really wanted to visit as well. This is my first book I have read from Maxine Morrey and she definitely has a new fan now!

About the Author
Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.
As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’.
Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
