Welcome to Porthgarrion, where love is always in the air…

The sunshine and sea air of Porthgarrion is exactly what the doctor ordered for Avery Watts. The last thing she needs is the pressure of performing at the Seaview Hotel for the summer season – her father’s idea of recovery. Avery is nowhere near ready to return to performing, if only her father would listen…

Fed up with a solitary life, Stephen Goddard is considering his options. His job is his world, but he’s starting to realise he needs a life away from managing the hotel – a life he can call his own, plus someone to share it with…

When he meets Avery, it’s unexpected, but helping her is second nature. And falling in love with her is even easier. Now all he has to do is convince her to stay…

These books can be read in any order, although it’s probably best to read It Started With Flowers first as an introduction to the village and the characters, whose stories will follow… in the Porthgarrion Stories.
