Coming Home To Wishington Bay - Maxine Morrey


Home is where the heart is…
Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.

But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.

With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.

As time went by, she continued to write, but 'normal' work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK's 'Write Christmas' competition with her first romantic comedy, 'Winter's Fairytale'.

Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.

This was such a fun, witty, quirky, clever story! It was very chick-lit-ish, which I love. Its really my favorite genre. Who doesn't love reading something fun and real? There were s many giggle worthy moments

Great characters, loved Holly and loved Gabe - what a cutie, and sweet, the “has it all” kind of guy. Excellent character development. I really felt like I got to know them personally.

Washington Bay sounded wonderful! Like a place I would love to go to. Thank you maxine for taking me on this trip! She gave us a great visual of everything. Excellent descriptions!

This was my first one by this author but honestly I can’t wait to read another one. This is exactly the kind of book I love to read. Great poolside reads :-)

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources Thank You!!
