Finding Love at Mermaid Terrace (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Love comes when you least expect it... Tressa Buckland likes her quiet life in Port Lowdy, with its cobbled streets and colourful terraced houses overlooking the sea. Her job at the local paper allows her to pursue her art in her free time, with no one but her tabby cat Ginger Pickles to mind her in Mermaid Terrace. But then the owner of the paper is called away on an emergency, and it's up to Tressa to run the paper for six months. Her first task: find a new part-time journalist.



Dan Byrne is the angriest man in Ireland - or so the readers of his very successful column, 'Dan takes on the world', think. But after a story goes south and he loses his job in Dublin, Dan has no choice but to start afresh. When an opportunity comes up in sleepy Cornwall, Dan and his Golden Retriever Ritchie set off for a new adventure.



For Tressa, Dan's arrival to Port Lowdy changes everything. Tressa tries not to look too deeply at her own life, but Dan sees a story to uncover in absolutely everyone - even her. The two of them couldn't be more different... yet, if they can find a way to work together, they may just breathe new life and joy into this sleepy seaside village.



Finding Love at Mermaid Terrace is a heartwarming new village romance about the power of love and kindness, from the bestselling author of Starting Over at Acorn Cottage.

Customer Reviews

What a lovely, feel-good, uplifting read! Tressa Buckland is very happy in Port Lowdy; she loves her cottage where she lives with Ginger Pickles, feline extraordinaire, and her part-time job at the local paper which allows her to pursue her art in her own way. Then the owner of the paper has to go away and it's left to Tressa to come up with a replacement for six months. Enter Dan Byrne, Irish journalist who has just been fired and is looking for pastures new. He blows into the Cornish village with Ritchie, his golden retriever, like a breath of fresh air. For some strange reason, he upsets Tressa just by being there - do opposites really attract? There's plenty going on between the covers of this book. Tressa wasn't alone in her love of Port Lowdy, I rather fancied living there myself! I've always had a notion to live on the coast, and everything about this village sounds awesome. The author has created a marvellous setting for her story, and the characters are equally as terrific. Each one has been carefully sculpted and each of their stories are enticing. I did have a few doubts about the treatment carried out by the paramedics though! A wonderful tale with several ups and downs, resulting in one very enjoyable novel which I'm happy to give 4*.
