Autumn Skies Over Ruby Falls Holly Martin 5*#Review @HollyMAuthor #RomCom #JewelIsland #Cornwall #Romance #Friendship #SecondChance #BookReview #BlogTour

Get swept away to the sparkling Cornish coast with the stunning new novel from bestselling author Holly Martin. Autumn Skies Over Ruby Falls is the perfect romantic treat to snuggle up with this autumn.

Clover Philips is exactly where she’s meant to be – back home on Jewel Island teaching dance to the guests at the beautiful Sapphire Bay Hotel that she co-owns with her sisters Skye and Aria. Her life is complete, except for one thing…

When Clover left London she also left behind a devastating betrayal. She hasn’t been able to date anyone since, let alone allow herself to fall in love. What she needs is a casual fling to ease herself back into romance. And as luck would have it, the very handsome Angel Mazzeo is back in town.

The chemistry between Clover and Angel has been undeniable ever since Angel first arrived on Jewel Island six months ago. And though content to be her friend till now, Angel is more than willing to help Clover find her dating feet again.

It should be easy to keep things carefree when love is off the table, but when every moment is magical what started as casual soon becomes something much deeper. Will Clover and Angel find the courage to tell each other how they really feel? And is Clover ready to do the one thing she swore she’d never do again, fall in love?

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

The second in the Jewel Island series is a standalone read, but the series is fabulous, so read the first book too. Clover’s romantic life is under scrutiny in this story. After a bad break-up, she has trust issues and is content to concentrate on her work life at the hotel. Angel offers friendship but their chemistry is undeniable, but can he commit and can Clover trust him if he does?

Against the vibrant hotel and island setting a sensitively written second chance romance begins. The characters are full of life and relatable. The range of characters gives the story authenticity and depth.

This book delivers a lovely gentle romance with contemporary issues and an idyllic island setting.
