Library Book Review – Spring At Blueberry Bay by Holly Martin – #romcom #chicklit


Welcome to beautiful Hope Island where the sea sparkles, the daffodils are blooming and a blossoming romance is just around the corner… 

Bella has always had a sunny outlook and caring nature, despite recently falling on hard times. When she finds a handsome homeless man on her doorstep, her kind heart tells her she must help him. So, she invites Isaac into her cottage and into her life in ways she could never have imagined… 

But Isaac is not what he seems. He’s keeping a huge secret from Bella, yet he never expected to fall for this open, generous and charming woman. 

Bella can’t ignore the chemistry between her and Isaac, but she’s had her trust badly broken in her past. Will she run when she learns the truth about Isaac, or will he be the one man who can help Bella believe in love again? 


I wanted a book with a Spring feel to it and when I saw this on my Library App I knew I had to get it! It was longer than I expected, but I enjoyed reading it nonetheless.

The writing was light and full of feeling. Messages of love, hope and trust shone through and made it a lovely read. It was quite an emotional rollercoaster, but I was pleased with the ending! It felt like it took quite a long time to get to the end of the book, even though it was full of things happening, which is why I have rated it a 4 instead of 5. I felt that the story could have been wrapped up sooner. 

I enjoyed seeing the story from both of the main characters’ points of view as it gave you the full picture and a more reliable story. I liked seeing what the characters thought and then seeing how they acted.

The chapters were long and were sometimes split into the different points of view. I enjoyed getting a good chunk of the story from both sides before moving on. I really felt like I was on the journey with both characters and liked the mix of reading the characters thoughts as well as their conversation. 

The characters themselves were likable and I loved the relationship between Bella and her family and the growing relationship between Issac and Bella. As I said before it was quite an emotional rollercoaster of a journey that I feel could have been wrapped up sooner. There was quite a lot of will they/won’t they. 

Lastly the settings. I loved the beautiful setting of the bay and the contrast when the characters were in London. The description and detailing in the book was excellent and produced a beautiful backdrop for the characters’ love story. There were patches of description inbetween the conversations of the characters which nicely enhanced the story. 

Overall an enjoyable book, perfect for Spring!

⭐Rated 4/5⭐
