One woman, one man, one shared fate…
A remote cottage on the wild coast of Cornwall sounded to Blythe Barton Stowe like the perfect escape from the pain and humiliation of recent events in her Hollywood life. But soon she seems to be reliving a centuries-old tragedy, and the handsome owner of the shabby manor house on the hill appears vitally entwined in her destiny. As they unearth one shocking family secret after another, Blythe is forced to conclude that her intriguing neighbor is more than just an impecunious British gentleman bent on saving his ancestral home. And the impeccably honorable Lucas Teague begins to see Blythe as a lifeline in an otherwise bleak existence.
Cottage by the Sea is a very fun read. It’s the perfect combination of romance and time travel. This book is an wonderful work of fiction, where you travel from States to England with the barrier of lifestyle, accent, environment, pshycology and history. Reading the story, you will notice how much research must have involved while writing. The varying cluster of secondary characters , like : Chloe, Richard, Valerie, and Mr. and Mrs. Quiller, plus the ghosts of the past: Kris, Ennis, Blythe, and Garret had added depth and value to the storyline immensly. Readers of varying generes are going to love this book. The romance lovers, historical story lovers and supernatural plot lovers… not to mention plain old fiction lovers like me. The setting of the story was astounding with varying emotions.
The perfect book to read at home during the scorching heat of summer, when you can’t be outside.
