Book Review: Sunrise over Sapphire Bay by Holly Martin.

Holly Martin is back with another gloriously romantic read that you will read in a couple of days then wish you'd slowed down a bit, because you wanted to keep reading and living in the world she's created for just a little while longer, but alas what can you do?!

The Blurb.

Aria Philips has lived on Jewel Island all of her life. Even when her sisters Clover and Skye left its stunning shores for bigger and better things, Aria stayed to help her father run their family hotel.
A year after her father’s death Aria’s done everything she can to keep things afloat but the hotel has long been struggling to make a profit. With so few guests Aria risks losing the only home she’s ever had.
Noah Campbell earned his fortune from making hotels a success, and he also just happens to be staying on Jewel Island this summer. Could he be the answer to Aria’s problems? If only he hadn’t kissed her under the willow tree the year before and never called her again. It had been the most incredible kiss of her life, but clearly business and pleasure should never be mixed.
As gorgeous and charming as Noah may be, Aria vows to keep things professional while she seeks his help. But for the past year Noah has been keeping a secret and his return to Jewel Island is about to change Aria’s life forever…

My Review.

I always look forward to Holly's books, because I know I'm going to get a happy, romantic story that will make me all fuzzy inside and dream of visiting secret coves and stunning islands. I love revisiting certain characters, which she does often, although I won't spoil who in this one, as it feels like all of her books are filled with one big happy family; like they are all friends and Holly knows them so well that she can intertwine them in each others lives and each others stories seamlessly. 

I really enjoyed the concept of this book and everything that came with it. The hotel renovations were so much fun to think about and see happen. The ideas they came up with and how the hotel was I could picture so clearly in my head. The bond between the sisters I could totally relate to. I loved how they were all there for each other and wanted to see each other succeed in their dreams, as well as being protective of each other. We are exactly the same with our 'little' sister and I'm pretty certain she would be able to relate to certain things Aria had to go through with her sisters Clover and Skye! In fact she could probably relate to all of it!! :p 

All of the hotel staff and cast of characters were highly entertaining and I felt a connection with them all. Then there was Noah. Ahh Noah. A man with many talents, vulnerable, charming, sweet, sexy, need I go on? His and Aria's should they/shouldn't they relationship had me shaking my kindle, as it was obvious they liked each other and should be together...but love's not that simple and so they had to figure it out for themselves, all while trying to be business partners! Talk about making things difficult! 

I was fully immersed in 'Sunrise over Sapphire Bay' from start to finish and I am soooo excited to find out who Holly is focusing on next. Half of me wants it to be Clover, but then the other half wants it to be Skye. Eeeee I don't know who it will be but I'm excited thinking about it none the less. So if you're looking for a magical, romantic, joyful read, I highly recommend 'Sunrise over Sapphire Bay.' 

Happy Reading!
