Review published on August 20, 2017.
I needed a touch of summer sunshine to break through the miserable rainy weather and cloud that had stolen my reading mojo – and Holly Martin seems to have provided the perfect prescription in Summer at Buttercup Beach!
The two main characters create gorgeous works of art together and have been friends for a long time. The ideal couple who just haven’t got together – Freya is someone who I’d want to be friends with. She’s the sort of person you could talk to about anything without fear of being judged. Rome would be your ideal best friend and boyfriend combined… kinda like my hubby if I’m honest! I was just itching for them to stop pussyfooting around and get together!
The setting of Buttercup Beach is gorgeous. The descriptions are lovely, makes you fall in love with the place and the people. I want to go and live on Hope Island right now! It’s so beautifully written; it really was a dream to read and I just couldn’t put it down, I started reading it at midnight and read it all through the night!
I feel I’ve really missed out as I’ve not read enough of Holly’s books… I will be rectifying that straight away! This is such a feel good warm read, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a comforting, uplifting read that will transport them to another place.
Claire Hill 5/4
