The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club (Luna Bay #2)

about „The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club*“

The perfect summer romance for a sunny afternoon and a picnic in the park
Emily Reed is having a bad day. Devastated at losing her hard-earned promotion to the ditz who’s sleeping with the boss, her mother drops a devastating bombshell—the dad she’s known and loved for twenty-five years isn’t her biological father.

Now Emily needs answers and a month in Luna Bay should give her the time she needs to find her father, and land the difficult client at the Sunflower Cottage B&B which should put her back in the running for her coveted promotion.

Setting up the Sunflower Cottage breakfast club should be a great way to meet the locals and maybe even find out who her father is! The only problem is that brooding and insanely gorgeous, Noah, is determined to make Emily’s stay perfectly uncomfortable.

Finding out the truth was never going to be simple, but she never thought her heart would get in the way…

My opinion

First, „The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club“ is a perfect summer romance indeed. As I can say for every ChicLit, it hasn’t any literary value. If you want to read something with more value, than you should chose another genre. But if you need a book to relax, than this book is for you.

Emily is a nice character, very helpful and, despite her job, not after the money. At first, the wants the promised promotion badly. But that is before she visits Luna Bay, where she wants to find answers why her biological father never got in touch with her and what kind of person he is.

Rose, who runs the local B&B, is a nice elderly lady. The Sunflower Cottage is her dream. When she gets ill, Emily and Noah help her out. Both Emily and Noah doesn’t go on well at first, because the mechanic doesn’t want that fancy woman and the company she is working for to buy the B&B. It was his refuge as a child and Rose is like a mother to him.

As the story develops, Emily realises where her place is and to whom her heart belongs. It’s predictable, but that is not bad. „The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club“ is an easy read to relax, remember?

But there are two things that bothered me while reading. Well, not really bother, but something that cought my eye. The first thing is the thing about Emily’s broken car. How does Rose know about it although she hasn’t told her?

At the end Emily has to choose: go back to Glasgow to her job, family and friends or stay in Luna Bay. That’s the second thing, because everytime the posibility of her moving to Luna Bay is mentioned, she repeats that she can’t leave her job, family and friends. No matter if in conversation with other or in the stream of consciousness. It’s a bit annoying.

Due to these two facts I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Nonetheless, I truly enjoyed that book.
