For once, things are going well for thirty-year-old Kerra Shaw. She has a fulfilling job helping small businesses in the local community, she is within a few minutes' walk of all the people she loves best, and most importantly, she has finally got together with her childhood sweetheart, Ross.

It's not all plain sailing, though, because they have to keep their relationship a secret. The feud between their families still rages on, and Kerra doesn't want to pour fuel on its flame and risk losing everything.

But Kerra should know better than anyone that secrets don't stay hidden for long in a community like Penvennan Cove...

An uplifting and feel-good romance novel for fans of Lucy Coleman, Jessica Redland and Lisa Hobman.

My Review:

Making Waves at Penvennan Cove by Linn B. Halton is the second book in her Pennvennan Cove series and is a delightful look into a busy, gossipy village with plenty of quirky characters and vivid descriptions of the cozy village.  

Kerra’s return to Penvennan Cove has her happy in her professional and personal life for the first time.  Her career is back on track as she works with small businesses to help them reach their full potential.  She came home to help her father after her mother’s death and she found the love of her life, Ross, her childhood crush.  

But, life back in Penvennan Cove isn’t all perfect.  Kerra must keep her relationship with Ross secret from her father, and Ross’s father as they have been in a feud for many years.  Keeping their relationship secret from their fathers also means keeping it secret from the entire, nosy, gossiping village.  

This is not a book that should be read as a stand-alone novel, but it really should be read after the first book Coming Home to Penvennan Cove.  It was confusing at first because I had not read the first book, with so many characters that had been introduced in the first book.  But, once I got past the initial confusion, I felt transported to the lovely little village and enjoyed the village life that Kerra came back to, with vivid descriptions of the setting.  

The conflicts between Kerra and Ross, and their resolve to keep their relationship secret from their fathers seemed authentic and I was rooting for Kerra and Ross to find a way to live together and be happily ever after.  

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a romance set in a lovely seaside village.  I received a complimentary copy of this book.  The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
