When her dreams of young love were cruelly shattered, Nerissa Morgan found it hard to move on. Now, at forty-three, everyone around her is enjoying life while she’s just going through the motions. With her boss retiring and rumours of a new doctor coming in to take over the practice she manages, change is coming, whether she’s ready for it or not.
Following the death of his beloved wife, Tom Nelson buried himself in work at his busy inner-London GP practice. When his teenage children find themselves in trouble at school, he realises he’s completely lost touch with them. Desperate to reconnect before it’s too late, he whisks his family away to the pretty seaside village of Mermaids Point determined to make a fresh start.
But all is not as idyllic as it seems. With his predecessor reluctant to let go of the reins and the children as distant as ever, the last thing Tom needs is an undeniable attraction to the woman he unexpectedly finds himself sharing a roof with…
Sarah is one of my absolute favourite authors and a total must-read. Her books are packed full of family, romance and gorgeous heroes you can’t help but fall in love with too. Autumn Dreams is, I think, one of Sarah’s best books. Mermaids Point is a gorgeous setting (and if you haven’t read Summer Kisses at Mermaids Point you really should), but the thing that makes this book special is the characters. Both are a little older and that brings with it a totally different aspect to the book. Nerissa is a kind and thoughtful woman who’s become trapped in her own life and Tom is a dad who’s doing his best with two teenage children. I love the maturity of the characters and the different battles they face. The romance is my favourite type of slow-burn and the ending will have you cheering for them even more.
This is definitely the book to cuddle up with this autumn!
