The Cottage at Plum Tree Bay – Darcie Boleyn


Catherine has spent her life in Penhallow Sands, dedicating herself to work and supporting her emotionally fragile mother. Since her father left, it’s always been the two of them and Catherine has no interest in romance. What’s the point when men just leave? And besides, her mother needs her.

But when handsome novelist Mark Coleman arrives to stay at the cottage overlooking nearby Plum Tree Bay, Catherine’s world is changed. She’s soon bumping into Mark everywhere – or being thrown at him by her matchmaking friend! The chemistry is undeniable. But can Mark let go of his painful past to be the man that Catherine can rely on? And will Catherine find the courage to let love in?


This book was very predictable but that’s not always a bad thing. I read this on my kindle on the aeroplane on the way back from a holiday and it helped pass the time very quickly. A wonderful warm fuzzy read, fantastic to follow a holiday with.

There was very strong character development throughout and a beautiful love story. Darcie’s writing was simple and easy to get along with.

I loved reading about Catherine and Mark, their friends and their journey together. There were also side stories which were interesting and did not distract from the main plot. I thought it was written very well and did exactly what it said on the tin.

Enjoyable read and would recommend! My rating: 3.5 stars out of 5!
