ABOUT THE BOOK
Megan Hamilton never really liked Elliot Bailey. He turned his back on her family when they needed him the most and it almost tore them all apart. So she’s shocked when Elliot arrives at her family’s inn, needing a place to stay and asking questions that dredge up the past. Megan will rent him a cottage, but that’s where it ends—no matter how gorgeous Elliot has become.
Coming back home to Haven Point was the last thing bestselling writer Elliot Bailey thought he’d ever do. But the book he’s writing now is his most personal one yet and it’s drawn him back to the woman he can’t get out of his mind. Seeing Megan again is harder than he expected and it brings up feelings he’d thought were long buried. Could this be his chance to win over his first love?
RaeAnne Thayne has done it again with her latest instalment in the Haven Point series and I will even go as far as saying that this novel is my favourite one so far!!
Megan Hamilton didn't dream of owning and running her grandmother's inn after her granny passed away but she loves Haven Point and her family needs her now more than ever. When her sister-in-law disappeared seven years ago, the cloud of suspicion hung over her brother Luke and has followed him and his two beautiful children around ever since. But Megan knows more than anyone that Luke would never hurt anyone, especially after the horrific childhood they had both endured but some people just don't want to see the truth. And one of those people is Elliot Bailey, a former friend of Luke's, and noted FBI agent and author.
When he rolls back into town and stays at the inn, Megan is determined to avoid him at all costs which shouldn't be hard as he doesn't seem particularly fond of her either. But when he starts looking into Elisabeth's disappearance, Megan wants to make sure that he doesn't stir up more trouble for her brother. But as they spend more time together it seems that neither of them really know each other and what they discover is so much more than either one expected ...
I loved Megan and her protective relationship towards her family, and Elliot is a little mysterious but such a good guy who wants to help people and I love watching them get to know each other.
With stunning settings that will take your breath away, engaging and likeable characters and a gripping plotline, THE COTTAGES ON SILVER BEACH by RaeAnne Thayne is the perfect read this Summer and a must for romantic and general fiction fans everywhere.
I'm not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.
Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.
After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.
Through it all -- through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor -- I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.
I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try -- their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 30 books later, I've come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the "that's-it!" feeling I get when a story is flowing.
I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.
Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can't imagine my life any other way.
