Sea Glass Cottage

The Sea Glass Cottage by RaeAnne Thayne. Ontario: HQN, 2020. 376 pages. ****

Olivia Harper is a witness to a crime and is having a difficult time moving forward from this horrific event. When Olivia's mother falls off of a ladder and requires her help, Olivia must overcome her fears and return to her hometown. Revisiting a place she couldn't wait to leave, Olivia is reminded of the friends, love, betrayal, and heartbreak left behind. Running her mother's plant business, Harper Hill Home & Garden, gives Olivia a new appreciation of the hard work and time required to keep a small business afloat. It doesn't help that her mother is the guardian of teenage Caitlin who seems to be belligerent and rude to everyone especially Olivia. Everyone has something to hide and secrets to be kept including handsome Cooper Vance, her sister's best friend and the brother of Melody, Olivia's best friend.

An easy to read book of friendship, love, and secrets. The story of each character and their connectiveness unfolds logically and it is easy to get lost in the story. I am reading this ARC while under a voluntary isolation (due to coronavirus) and it is the perfect story to escape from local and world news. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and story line. Cape Sanctuary seems like the perfect place to visit and live, it's the town where everyone helps and looks out for each other. The perfect book for summer and beach reading.

I received an ecopy for review.
