Spring at Lavender Bay by Sarah Bennett

"Beth Reynolds loved growing up close to Eleanor’s Emporium – a bric-a-brac shop full of wonders on Lavender Bay. Devastated to learn that Eleanor has died, she returns home from London immediately and is shocked to discover that the elderly lady has left the shop to her!
Vowing to restore it to its former glory, she only intends to stay until the end of the season. Although the longer she spends in the colourful seaside town, the more she falls back in love with everything she left behind…and quite possibly, with her best friend Eliza’s older brother, local chef Sam Barnes!
Why didn’t she notice he was quite this gorgeous before? And will their spring fling be enough to convince her to stay?"

There is no doubt about it, Sarah Bennett has become a new firm favourite of mine.  Having adored her Butterfly Cove series, I took to Amazon to see what other series there are and I plumped for the Lavender Bay series.
This first instalment at Lavender Bay focuses on Beth who isn't particularly happy with her life in London.  When she inherits Eleanor's Emporium which is an extremely special place for her, she only intends to stay until the end of the season but Lavender Bay works its magic on her and, a bit like the reader, she doesn't stand a chance.
Once again, Sarah's characters, location and storyline are absolutely fabulous.  As part of Beth's story, you meet her two best friends, Eliza and Libby which leads nicely onto the next two books in the series; one for each character.  As with The Butterfly Cove Series, I leapt from one book straight into the next because I couldn't bear to wait for more than a few minutes (and I highly recommend you do the same!)

Spring at Lavender Bay is out now and can be purchased here on Kindle or in Paperback (prices correct at time of writing):
