#BookReview Summer on a Sunny Island by Sue Moorcroft

This summer, sparks are flying on the island of Malta…

When Rosa Hammond splits up from her partner Marcus, her Mum Dora suggests a summer in Malta. Not one to sit back and watch her daughter be unhappy, Dora introduces Rosa to Zach, in the hope that romance will bloom under the summer sun. But Rosa’s determined not to be swayed by a handsome man – she’s in Malta to work, after all.

Zach, meanwhile, is a magnet for trouble and is dealing with a fair few problems of his own. Neither Rosa or Zach are ready for love – but does fate have other ideas? And after a summer in paradise, will Rosa ever want to leave?

My thoughts:

Thank you to Avon Books for a digital review copy via NetGalley – my thoughts are my own.

I loved travelling to Switzerland with Sue Moorcroft in Let it Snow last year and enjoyed my visit to Malta in Summer on a Sunny Island.

The story involves two families, who have been reunited decades later, who spent time in Malta with the British Armed Forces. Having only visited Malta for a day on a cruise 20 years ago, Sue Moorcroft has given lots of recommendations throughout the book for places to visit and foods to try when the current global pandemic is over.

Rosa and Zach are spending the summer working in Malta, whilst thinking about where their futures will take them. Both need to resolve issues in their past to be able to move forward. The story flows well and is a good summer read. My favourite characters are Dora and Paige – both made me smile on numerous occasions.
