Coming home to Merriment Bay Part 2

Today I am sharing my review for Part Two of the Merriment Bay series. I am really enjoying this series and this book picks up straight from where part one ended.

In this visit to Merriment Bay you get to know more about Mary and her links to the Wells family and why she is so keen for Cat to stay away from Amias. The first two parts of the story books are full of family drama and are flowing together effortlessly.  This has left me wanting to know what comes next for the Devon girls and what else has happened in the past that is going to come to light as the story continues to unravel.

I love the style of writing from Emily Harvale as I know when I pick up her books I will enjoy the story and that they will be light hearted escapism at its best.

Part Two of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.

Cat Devon knew she couldn’t avoid Amias Wells for long. She also knew sparks would fly the moment they came face to face. They never did get on and nothing has changed in eighteen years – except that Amias is even more annoying. So why does Cat still catch her breath whenever he looks her way?

The fact he flies a vintage Spitfire for the Merriment Bay WWII Museum doesn’t interest Cat, but his knowledge of the former RAF pilots stationed there certainly does. She wants to find out all she can about the man in the photo in Viola’s trunk. And what with hospital visits, dealing with her mum, and sorting out problems with Viola’s house, Cat could use more than just Kyra’s help.

But Kyra makes it clear she thinks Cat and Amias should spend more time together. Which is ridiculous. Apart from the fact they don’t get on, Amias wasn’t interested in Cat before the accident that left the ugly scars on her face and body, so he definitely won’t be attracted to her now. Besides, Cat’s not looking for romance. She’s happy with her life just the way it is.
