ABOUT THIS BOOK
Jodie Jackson is all at sea, in every sense.
On a ferry bound for the Isle of Wight, she's leaving her London life, her career, and her husband behind. She'd like a chance to turn back the clocks, but she'll settle for some peace and quiet on her brother Bill's beautifully renovated houseboat, Sunny Days.
But from the moment Jodie steps aboard her new home, it's clear she'll struggle to keep herself to herself. If it isn't Marilyn, who cleans for Bill and is under strict instructions to look after Jodie, then it's Ned, the noisy sculptor on the next-door houseboat. Ned's wood carving is hard on the ears, but it's made up for by the fact that he's rather easy on the eyes.
Bustled out of the boat by Marilyn and encouraged to explore with Ned, Jodie soon delights in her newfound freedom. But out of mind isn't out of sight, and when her old life comes knocking Jodie is forced to face reality. Will she answer the call or choose a life filled with Sunny Days and Sea Breezes?
SUNNY DAYS & SEA BREEZES by Carole Matthews is an emotional story about life and what happens when your future changes unexpectedly in ways you could never imagine.
Jodie Jackson needs to escape and her big brother's houseboat on the Isle of Wight is the perfect hideout. Here she hopes to slow down and come to terms with everything that has happened in her life, and putting some distance between herself and her husband is a must right now. Jodie craves solitude but she had never met anyone like Marilyn before, and Marilyn is determined to help Jodie be happy again. Along with some other quirky characters and a very handsome and endearing next-door neighbour, could Jodie figure out what she wants from the future while coming to terms with the past? Or will the past always pull you back in?
Engaging from the beginning, I felt instantly connected to Jodie and longed for her to open up about her heartache, and when she did, let's just say I had a good cry. As Jodie became stronger and started to focus on herself and how she was feeling, I longed for her to find happiness in herself and her future. The setting is beautiful and I fell in love with the houseboat - I definitely would love to stay one and have it on my bucket list! There were some surprises along the way which I enjoyed, and I read this book in one evening because I simply couldn't put it down.
SUNNY DAYS & SEA BREEZES by Carole Matthews is a moving story about heartache and hope, and I cannot wait to read more from one of my favourite authors.
