Being a part-time hand model can be tricky, especially when you have to deal with prima donnas like Megan Knight, a reality star whose meteoric rise has surprised everyone. Bella is happiest running her tiny antique business from the front room of her cottage on the boardwalk. To ensure she has enough income coming in, she also rents out two of her bedrooms and is hiding a secret crush on one of her lodgers. His name is Jack and he also happens to be her best friend Sacha’s brother.
If life wasn’t complicated enough, her world-travelling mother appears on her doorstep on the same evening that Jack’s ex-fiancée arrives on the boardwalk determined to win him back. Bella has a lot of thinking to do and soon discovers that not all gems sparkle.
I absolutely adored this book!
It is very well written, has a fabulous storyline and some brilliant characters. The writing style is spot on for this genre and it flows very, very well.
I read the book the same day I started it as not long after starting it I was over half way through, then I realised I’d actually been reading for quite a bit longer than I realised, and well as I was over half way I just carried on and finished it quite late at night but it was definitely worth staying up for!
This is the second book in the series but I haven’t read the first one myself yet and I thoroughly enjoyed it – but I will admit that I loved this one so much I have downloaded the first ready to read!
Five stars from me, it is a well written and thoroughly enjoyable story – very highly recommended – a delightful treat to read!!
