Jasmine leaves her home in Paris to revisit her roots in Sandy Cove hoping to find peace and healing after a heart-hurting breakup. Not having stayed very close to her mother, Jasmine wonders how she’ll be received showing up unannounced. Sally, however, embraces her daughter’s return and astonishes Jasmine with her new attitude, raw-food-diet and yoga lifestyle…and a mystery man who is putting a spark back in Sally’s eyes.
As Jasmine and her loyal terrier Milou, settle into life in the quaint cove, she makes friends that quickly welcome her and include her in their social activities, and she is soon intrigued by her own family’s history to Sandy Cove. It’s wonderful to be reunited with familiar friends Maeve, Cordelia, Roisin, and getting an epilogue-ish look into their lives is lovely.
Jasmine is reconnected with her old Paris school mate Aiden, who returned to Sandy Cove and opened a restaurant. When Aiden introduces her to his charming friend Connor, Jasmine surprises herself by accepting his offer to show her around the area.
As Jasmine spends more time exploring the beautiful Irish Coast and trails around Wild Rose Bay, she develops a connection to Sandy Cove…and feelings for Connor. But when Connor’s life has a sudden turn of events, Jasmine is left thinking that she should have known better.
As always, Aiden’s shoulder is there for Jasmine but when he breaks the news that he’s going to be leaving Sandy Cove, will Jasmine finally face up to her true feelings?
A genuinely charming, romantic read. Flowing storyline, splendidly depicted scenery, and heart-warming friendships.
