    Release Date: June 22, 2018 Genre: Chick Lit Actual Rating: 3.5-4 starsThis book is everything I expect from a Holly Martin novel- cute, fun, romantic, and 100% sweet. I am never disappointed in her novels and don't think I ever will be. If you have read her last release, you will notice that the characters from that book play a role in this one. This is an interconnected series of standalones. PS: I don't have a lot to say about this one beca...

    I absolutely love Holly Martin’s novels; they are the perfect stories to sit on a lounger with during these Summer months. The Cottage on Sunshine Beach was no exception.While I have to admit that I found this story a touch slow at the beginning, the plot picked up at around 25% though and I found myself grinning the rest of the way through the novel; chuckling every now and again. It is possible that I stayed up entirely too late one night jus...

    This truly is a delightful seaside romantic comedy, with great characters, an idyllic community and plenty of twists and turns to keep you enthralled. There are a plethora of laugh out loud moments throughout this heartwarming story during which jewellery maker Melody Rosewood learns to laugh at her catastrophic dating disasters thanks to the highly talented - and handsome - sculptor, Jamie Jackson. As these two artists venture from great friends...
  • Rachel Gilbey
    This book has some of the best scenes I have ever read in a book - such hilarity and the descriptions used were so clear that I could see them unfolding in front of my very eyes. Keep your eyes peeled for that scene in a cave, that scene in a supermarket aisle, that scene in puppy training class to name just 3 moments of absolute fabulousness. But really the whole book is packed full of gems, not just hilarious ones, but actual gemstones as Melod...
  • Kim
    I adored the return visit to Sandcastle Bay. The characters now seem like old friends and they are all so wonderful. This book follows Melody and Jamie and willing them to take their lovely friendship to the next romantic level. They are so well suited, arty and a bit burnt by previous relationships.I could imagine myself in Sandcastle Bay and chatting to Melody in her lovely cottage. Everyone in the bay seems to have a puppy and I loved the scen...

    What is not to love about this book? I, for sure, cannot mention one thing. It's like coming home when you read about that little village at the beach again and meeting up with the characters of the first book. It feels like coming together with old friends. The story shows us that we don't have to change into something we are not to please other people. No matter who or what you are, there is always someone you loves you. The book is full of lov...

I couldn't put it down!The storyline is so well written and the characters are great, they develop thruought the story.The place where the story is happening is so idyllic that I just wish tobe there during this rainy day.I adore the writing style and I will read more from Holly Martin
  • Steph Lawrence
    Such a lovely, heartwarming book. The publisher’s description of ‘An utterly gorgeous feel good romantic comedy’ is spot on….truly gorgeous.This story has all you want and need in a modern romantic novel, it gets a bit steamy at times too!The picture-perfect setting, a small English seaside town called Sandcastle Bay.I imagined I was there, and the beach was fantastic in my head.Melody and Jamie are really drawn to each other, but are shy...

    “The Cottage on Sunshine Beach” is a second book in the Sandcastle Bay series. It can be read as a stand – alone, of course it can, because it’s following the adventures (and there are plenty of them! PLENTY!) of Melody and James but you would just miss out too much on a colourful, hilarious, sexy and quirky story – telling in “The Holiday Cottage by the Sea”. You don’t have to read them in the right order, I think, just read them...
  • Amanda
    I have been a fan of Holly’s for a fair while now. I just love her books. I was so looking forward to reading ‘The Cottage On Sunshine Beach’. I was not to be disappointed as I absolutely loved it but more about that in a bit.I immediately took to the character of Melody Rosewood and I even ended up more than a bit envious of her. She is a young woman, who moved to Sunshine Beach to help her sister bring up their brother’s child, after th...

    I always enjoy Hollys books and great to read this one and full of romance and being honest in order to fall in love. It's heartwarning and set in such beautiful countryside you think you are there such a perfect summer read. Full of fun and passion as well and well worth reading. Melody loves her new home in sandcastle bay and her cottage is right on the edge of the sunshine beach. She loves being closer to her family and friend Tori and she lov...

    When I chose to read The Cottage on Sunshine Beach, I knew that I'd be in for a treat, as all of Holly's books that I've read so far have been absolutely wonderful and entertaining.Having read The Holiday Cottage by the Sea, which is where you first get to meet Melody and Jamie as background characters, I was very keen to read their story which is what Holly's latest book is all about. I loved everything about this story, it was such a joy to rea...
  • Sloane
    This was my first Holly Martin read. The Cottage on Sunshine Beach was an adorable read. Though it is the second in the Sandcastle Bay series, I was able to follow along and do not feel that the first, Holiday Cottage by the Sea, must have been read first. I loved Melody and Jamie individually, and together. The pooches, Sirius and Rocky added to the fun! I will miss this cast of characters and the endearing nature of the small town of Sandcastle...
  • Emma Crowley
    I simply adored my first visit to Sandcastle Bay when I read The Holiday Cottage by the Sea back in April so I was glad the wait for book two, The Cottage on Sunshine Beach, in this planned trilogy wasn't that long at all. This was such an enjoyable read packed full of the traits of Holly Martin's writing that I have come to love and also to expect. Holly is a fantastic writer and I know I will always be guaranteed a brilliant storyline packed fu...

    Today the second book in the Sandcastle Bay series is out in the world and I can't wait to share how much I enjoyed my reading experience. Followers of my blog might know that I absolutely loved the first part of the series, being The Holiday Cottage by the Sea.  And I can tell you straight away the second book in the series doesn't disappoint.We return to Sandcastle Bay but this time in the Summer. A couple of months have passed since the last...

    This is book 2 in the Sandcastle Bay series, and I haven't read book 1 - Holiday Cottage by the Sea - so this can be read as a standalone as I fell in love with the location and characters from this book alone so now need to get shopping as I just want more!!This is the story of Melody - and her puppy Rocky! - who lives in Apple Tree cottage that overlooks Sunshine Beach (I want to live there!!) and life is going rather well for her as she has le...

    Fun, gloriously romantic and heartwarming: you guessed it, it's another wonderful Holly Martin book! We return to Sandcastle Bay where we left Tori and Aiden starting their happily ever after, to focus on the cute connection Melody and Jamie share. As always, both are hesitant to put themselves out there and take a risk. Although I must say Melody's past and reservations didn't really "hit" me as hard as Jamie's did and I couldn't always understa...

    The Cottage on Sunshine Beach is the second book in Holly Martin’s Sandcastle Bay series. Melody Rosewood moved to Sandcastle Bay a bit over a year ago to assist her sister, Isla, as she undertook the major life change to raise their nephew Elliott after Melody’s twin, Matthew, perished in an auto accident. She had given up a fashionable jewelry business in London, but has since established a brand new jewelry shop in her new home and her bus...

    *Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review* We are back in Sandcastle Bay and I couldn't be happier! I was hoping for Melody to get her own story told and here we are...I loved following both Melody and Jamie, because they had instant attraction and the sparks between them were intense. The past is holding Jamie back though, it's hard for him to commit to a relationship again. We also got to catch up with some familiar chara...

    THe Cottage on Sunshine Beach is the second standalone book in Holly Martin’s newest series set in the beach town of Sandcastle Bay. I love Holly Martin when she writes about small town romances usually set in the English coast or countryside. There is always an element that the town and its inhabitants are the third character in the story and this one is no exception. Jamie and Melody have become fast friends but Melody wants to pursue the rel...

    Wow. This is a must read for summer 2018. Utterly perfect! What a great first story to read by this author, I am very impressed. Where do I even start?I started reading this book after a really stressful morning and it was just what I needed! The cover is lovely and I felt instantly at home and familiar with the town and characters from the start. It made me feel very welcome and calm like I’ve always been part of this town and familiar with th...

    Melody came back to Sandcastle Bay when her twin Matthew died to help her sister Isla bring up Matthews son. She soon settles down with her own little shop selling her jewellery, which just happens to be right opposite Jamie's studio......... but will the gorgeous sculptor ever see her as anything other than a friend.... even after that amazing kiss at Matthew's funeral!Great to be back in Sandcastle Bay and catch up with all the friends from the...
  • Jessica
    Another absolutely fantastic read by Holly. Full of sizzling hot romance, the chemistry between the characters was red hot! Everything about this book was just stunning, I loved the location, what I would give for a walk around it. Once you start reading this you will fall in love and not be able to put it down. My favourite book of the year so far!
  • Lisa
    Martin's story is set in the fictional but the utterly charming location of Sandcastle Bay. Her cast of characters encompasses village life excellently with no one able to have a private life, the gossip mill running wild and well-meaning meddlers in the mix. Join the endearingly clumsy, accident-prone Melody in her quest to capture Jamie's heart you won't regret it. Brimming with laugh-out-loud disaster moments and a side helping of heart-wrench...
  • Meg Dean
