Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the picturesque seaside town of Holly Blue Bay, where love blossoms in the most unusual of places.
 

Daisy Clarke arrives in Holly Blue Bay at the request of the town’s mayor. The mayor wants Daisy to perform a marketing miracle on the town, and to increase the visitor numbers too. The town holds a special place in Daisy’s heart as something magical happened to her when she visited this place as a child. She’s determined to show the rest of the world how wonderful the town is, and will use all her marketing skills to do so.
 

Jacob Smythe is a grumpy handyman who turns up at Daisy’s new office. She immediately mistakes him for someone else, which certainly breaks the ice between them. Just as Jacob is warming to Daisy, the mayor turns up and tells him why Daisy is in Holly Blue Bay. Jacob is furious and refuses to admit the town needs help, especially from an outsider.
 

Things change over the next few days as Jacob and Daisy spend more time together. They find themselves drawn to each other, and love begins to grow. But then something terrible happens which results in Daisy deciding to leave Holly Blue Bay, and Jacob, behind. Can Jacob convince her to stay?

Cute and Sweet Romance

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily leaving this review and all opinions expressed herein are mine.

Daisy comes to Holly Blue Bay to help market the town for tourism. She meets Jacob, the town handyman, but mistakenly believes ne is a stripper sent by her friend. Initially Jacob and Daisy butt heads, however, as Jacob sees the good she is doing for the town and the fact that his dog really likes her - he begins to change his mind.

This is a short, sweet and clean romance with some good humor thrown in. The MC are likeable and while the story is predictable and some of the resolutions to their problems were a bit too easy - it was a feel good story and an enjoyable time in Holly Blue Bay.

The narrator was a good fit for this book and made it a fun listen.

Fun Listen

A Fresh Start In Holly Blue Bay
: Cathy Blossom

A sweet clean romance where opposites attract. Daisy comes to Holly Blue Bay to help the town bring in tourists. Jacob is the town handyman that doesn't want things to change. When they first meet there are some misunderstandings, but soon the adventure takes off and the listener will be along for the ride.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Rita Chakraborty.

Light and fun summer romance

Nice little summer romance, perfect to listen to in the car as you drive to a seaside town. Daisy's really likeable and cute dynamic between other characters like Jacob and the mayor and the mayor and the postman. Feelgood and well read by the narrator whose very expressive and funny.
