An emotional novel about first love, second chances, and what it means to follow your heart from this award-winning author who “writes with humor and heart” (Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author).
Hadley Wells swapped her dreams of saving the planet for the glamour of Hollywood. But when a very public breakup reveals cracks in her not-so-perfect life, she returns to her hometown to reassess what it is she truly wants. Unfortunately, Seashell Harbor has some trouble of its own—including the first man to ever break her heart.
A serious injury forced footballer Tony Cammareri into early retirement—now he’s determined to reboot his life with a splashy new restaurant venture. He knows better than to expect a happy reunion with Hadley, but he’s determined to make up for the way things ended between them. Yet when Tony and Hadley end up vying for control of the town’s future, they find themselves once again on opposing sides.
As their rivalry intensifies, they must decide what’s worth fighting for—and what it truly means to be happy.
Coming Home to Seashell Harbor by Miranda Liasson is for fans of Susan Wiggs and Susan Mallery. It has the same heart felt connection as those writers’ books. The second chance theme lured me deep into this read. I was addicted. It is clean, wholesome, and entertaining. These characters featured had their own personal problems. That and their past romantic connection has them reeling all kinds of emotions. I loved how much Tony and Hadley grew from the beginning. By the end of the book, they were more confident and settled into who and where they were meant to be. This contemporary romance slash women’s fiction novel had enough spark, humor, and banters to keep me reading. I really liked the the protagonists, the rivalry, and the dialogue. Miranda Liasson created a sweet yet charming tale. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future. Overall, this was the perfect summer read.
