This was the perfect read last week as it was lovely and sunny and hot and this book is a great summer romance.
I have to say, this book gave me so much nostalgia. Having grown up in the New Forest I visited the Isle of Wight for day trips a lot as a child as well as a few holidays there so it was great to read a story set on the small yet pretty island.
Sunny Days and Sea Breezes is your typical summer romance Beach read, but I’m not saying that’s a bad thing at all. I really enjoyed the setting and the characters. The plot was somewhat predictable but that didn’t spoil anything for me as it was a nice comforting, fun read.
There are a few tough topics they cover in the book which hit home, having been affected by a few of them myself. I am not afraid to admit I did tear up at a few parts due to this.
This story is full of everything you want from a traditional beach read; love, romance, gossip, fun, comedy and a few tears.
It follows Jodie, a 40-something designer who needs to escape from reality for a bit after a difficult, emotional few months. So she goes and stays on her brother’s boat “Sunny Days” for a while. This is when she meets the larger than life, bubbly Marilyn who has been asked to keep an eye on her by her protective brother. Then you have the gorgeous next door neighbour, Ned, a carefree sculptor who tries to help Jodie come out of her shell and learn how to enjoy life again.
I enjoyed every minute of this book, it is warm, heartfelt and a wonderful book to read when you want something easy going and romantic.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ – a brilliant beach read from start to finish would definitely recommend
Much love 💘
