Review of audio book, Summer at Rose Island: A Perfect Feel-Good Summer Romance: White Cliff Bay, Book 3 Written by: Holly Martin Narrated by:..Show More » Emma Newman
Straight away I should tell you that you do not need to read/listen to book one or two to enjoy this charming and heart-warming story. It starts of in a quaint sea side village with picturesque view‘s that are dominated by an interesting old light house, which our main character Darcy Davenport is inexplicably drawn to.
Darcy a fiery red head woman with a warm heart is a marine biologist and has moved to white cliff bay, her old childhood haunt to make a new start after a string of disappointments. She makes the move in spite of her parent’s reservations but luckily she has the support of her clever and at times comical brother. Darcy has a dog, I love when stories have dogs, and she meets a rather dashing all American hunk Riley Eddison who also has a dog. The dogs get on at once, and later in the story snuggle together in bed. The same fate is in store for Riley and Darcy but first they have a few trails to overcome, not least of which is saving Riley’s home, Rose light house which has been in his family for generations. I love all the characters in this story, the nosy but caring villages, the expectant couple Libby and George even the super slutty reporter. All expertly brought to life not only by Holly Martian’s fabulous creative writing but by the superb talent of narrator Emma Newman, who is especially good at doing the sexy American voice. This is more than a summer read, it is a multi-faceted romance that just happens to happen in summer. Holly fits so much depth and warmth into an average size book. Her imagination is boundless and I would highly recommend this audio book. 5 stars.
