Rambling About.. Lynsey James' The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club

I'm so glad that I already have Lynsey James' The Broken Hearts Book Club on my Kindle app. It's the first book in the Luna Bay series and I've so enjoyed the second one thanks to NetGalley and CarinaUK! I used The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club for the most recent Book Beginnings & Friday 56 post and at the time had only read a couple of pages. I really got into it yesterday and had a hard time falling asleep last night because it would mean putting it down.

Emily has traveled to Luna Bay from her home in Glasgow with a two-part month-long mission. Part one is to meet her biological father for the first time after spending her entire life not knowing he wasn't the man she had called Dad. Part two is to convince the owner of Sunflower Cottage to sell her bed & breakfast to the hotel development company Emily works for and become the latest member of its chain (and gain Emily a much sought-after promotion in the process).

Emily is very much a business woman. She favors green smoothies over breakfast and pantsuits (complete with shoulder pads) over casual wear. She "unwinds" by diving into the work on her laptop. Until, of course, Luna Bay starts to take effect on her.

At first Emily couldn't wait to get out of there. People were wary over her wanting to take control of their beloved Sunflower Cottage -- especially Noah, the handsome but gruff mechanic who helped the owner, Rose, as much as he could and felt it to be as much of a home as he ever had. When Rose has an accident that puts her out of commission for a bit, Noah volunteers to step up to run the B&B in her absence -- and Emily volunteers to help. It doesn't take long, of course, for the two to get past their initial bickering and dislike of each other and a romance starts to blossom. (No big surprise there, huh?)

Actually, the quick turnaround in feelings between Noah and Emily was the only part of the book that seemed a little off to me. It just felt rushed -- as though a step or five had been overlooked. Nevertheless, the swiftness of it is was swept aside by the sweetness and strength of the rest of the tale. I fell in love with Luna Bay and its delightful cast of characters and look forward to revisiting time and again,

Life in Luna Bay is sweet & sizzling. Once you spend some time there, you won't want to leave!
