Happy Sunday Everyone! Today I am sharing a lovely heartwarming review for Autumn Dreams at Mermaids Point by Sarah Bennett

My Review

After loving my first visit to Mermaid’s Point, I couldn’t wait to visit Laurie and her wonderful family again. This time we spend time with her beloved aunt Nerissa, as Doc prepares to retire and Nerissa is forced to reassess what she will do if she loses both her job and her home.

When the new Doctor arrives with his bereaved children, the residents of Mermaids Point soon get to work in welcoming them. I loved spending time with Nerissa as we learn more about her broken heart from when she lost Gareth and she empathises with the Doctor’s children over the loss of their mother.

A story filled with love, loss, warmth and understanding, I found that once again I reached the end too quickly and I already can’t wait to revisit Mermaid’s Point and spend more time with Laurie, Nerissa and their families.

Book Blurb

When her dreams of young love were cruelly shattered, Nerissa Morgan found it hard to move on. Now, at forty-three, everyone around her is enjoying life while she’s just going through the motions. With her boss retiring and rumours of a new doctor coming in to take over the practice she manages, change is coming, whether she’s ready for it or not.

Following the death of his beloved wife, Tom Nelson buried himself in work at his busy inner-London GP practice. When his teenage children find themselves in trouble at school, he realises he’s completely lost touch with them. Desperate to reconnect before it’s too late, he whisks his family away to the pretty seaside village of Mermaids Point determined to make a fresh start.

But all is not as idyllic as it seems. With his predecessor reluctant to let go of the reins and the children as distant as ever, the last thing Tom needs is an undeniable attraction to the woman he unexpectedly finds himself sharing a roof with…

Warm, escapist, feel-good and altogether brilliant story-telling from bestselling author Sarah Bennett. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley and Milly Johnson.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
