I’m thrilled to be joining the blog tour for the latest book by Holly Martin. I’ve read and enjoyed a number of books by Holly, you can see my last review at https://mentoringmumof2bookreviews.home.blog/2021/06/19/sunlight-over-crystal-sands-by-holly-martin/
Welcome to the wonderful Wishing Wood, where incredible treehouses twinkle under a blanket of stars, the sea sparkles through the leaves, and true love is in the air. From the bestselling author of Sunlight over Crystal Sands comes this gorgeously romantic tale.
Indigo Bloom is on her way to beautiful Wishing Wood with some very big news. Two months ago she shared an incredible night with the most amazing man. She didn’t think she’d ever see River Brookfield again, but she never imagined she’d be showing up out of the blue to tell him she’s pregnant with his child.
Indigo’s heart longs for a fairytale ending. There’s just one problem: River doesn’t remember who Indigo is…
Crushed that a night that meant so much to her was so forgettable for him, Indigo resolves to keep her identity and her pregnancy secret until she gets to know the real River. But as they spend more time together, it’s clear that the incredible connection they shared that first night is stronger than ever, and that River might remember more than Indigo first thought.
The closer they get, Indigo’s secret becomes harder to share. Can Indigo find the courage to tell River the truth? And if she does, will she get the fairytale ending she’s been dreaming of?
Make all your dreams come true this summer with this feel-good love story that will sweep you off your feet. It’s the perfect read for fans of Jill Mansell, Sarah Morgan and Sue Moorcroft.
Thank you to Holly for my virtual visit to Wishing Wood. The location is stunning, bespoke beautiful treehouses near the sea (and yes, I would love to visit). This was a relaxing read and a welcome escape from the real world.
There is a ‘will they, won’t they’ love story between Indigo and River. Both have sadness and hurt in their past, but can they move forward to trust each other?
I loved the family relationships in this book – grandmother Amelia was incorrigible when trying to find out what was happening between her grandson and Indigo. River has his family working and living at Wishing Wood, and I’m sure that Holly will be returning there in future books.
Happy to recommend this book to readers of romantic fiction.
Holly lives in a little white cottage by the sea. She studied media at university which led to a very glitzy career as a hotel receptionist followed by a even more glamorous two years working in a bank. The moment that one of her colleagues received the much coveted carriage clock for fifteen years’ service was the moment when she knew she had to escape. She quit her job and returned to university to train to be a teacher. Three years later, she emerged wide eyed and terrified that she now had responsibility for the development of thirty young minds. She taught for four years and then escaped the classroom to teach history workshops, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next. But the long journeys around the UK and many hours sat on the M25 gave her a lot of time to plan out her stories and she now writes full time, doing what she loves.
Holly has been writing for 8 years. She was shortlisted for the New Talent Award at the Festival of Romance. Her short story won the Sunlounger competition and was published in the Sunlounger anthology. She won the Carina Valentine’s competition at the Festival of Romance with her novel The Guestbook.
