Enhance your purchase
Fans of Jenny Oliver, Cathy Bramley and Debbie Johnson will love this hilarious and heart-warming romantic comedy! A storm is brewing on the stunning Cornish coast – but will sunshine follow the rain?
When Annie Trebarwith unexpectedly inherits Tregavara House, her much-loved family home atop the cliffs of Salt Bay, she begins to wonder: with all the good friends and warm memories she’s made in the village, could it be her forever home?
Luckily her gorgeous Poldark-lookalike boyfriend, Josh Pasco, has exactly the same idea. High on the Cornish cliffs he gets down on one knee, and Annie has everything she’s ever dreamed of.
But when a summer storm causes catastrophic damage to the beautiful but aging house, Annie and Josh are faced with tumbling tiles and a massive repair bill – and a roof that’s leaked straight onto her wedding gown…
Can the Salt Bay community save Annie’s house and her wedding – and give Annie the happy-ever-after she’s always wanted?

This lovely story did not disappoint. I loved the descriptions of Cornwall and its many "moods" but also the characters roving through the story.
Of course it has twists and turns, some good some bad, but also most enjoyable and romantic.
Recommend to all.
Annie and Josh are back, this time planning their wedding. The whole village of Salt Bay gets involved, as they seem to do with all aspects of their lives anyway. This can be annoying at times, I am sure, but most of the time it is a good thing to be part of a close-knit village. The descriptions of Cornwall make me want to visit, that's for sure!
The usual village shenanigans occur, new romances blossom and Annie and Josh's path to married life is a bit of a zig-zag path instead of a straight line. Does Annie's dodgy cousin Toby become a reformed character in this book? Does her Aussie friend Kayla manage to keep her mouth shut occasionally? What about great-aunt Alice's health?
I like this tale of village life and its inhabitants. If I had to choose between Salt Bay and a large city, I would pick Salt Bay every time.
4.5 stars from me.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture.

The plot is convoluted and, despite dropped clues, unpredictable. I love not being able to say for sure how everything will turn out in the end. Don't hesitate to buy this book. It will entertain you, enthral you and lift up your spirits when you are feeling low . I was sorry it had to end.
I loved the first, Annie's choir by the sea, which got me hooked and I couldn't wait until the second, Annie's Christmas by the sea which as better than the 1st.
Annie's summer by the sea, I waited on tender hooks and when it came out, read in 2 days.... it was sad, happy and laugh out loud funny that people stared at me on the train, I am disappointed that it was the last in the trilogy, (I am sure Liz could have squeezed out a 4th book) but a great ending, leaving you wanting more but knowing it was the end.
I look forward to reading more of Liz's books.
This book sees fun and laughter; sadness and tears; and the tying up of loose ends.
I really enjoyed reading the book and read it over 2 evenings. Well written with rounded characters who fit into the story so well. I'm looking forward to reading more of this Authors books.
