Coming Home to Merriment Bay: Part Three: Christmas
by Emily Harvale
About the Book:
Part Three of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.
Cat and Kyra have finally traced the man in the photo they found in Viola’s trunk – thanks to Amias. But Bailey Mitchell lives thousands of miles away and is almost ninety-eight, so meeting him in person is never going to happen. Which is just as well. Exchanging Christmas cards and chatting on social media leads to revelations Cat had not expected.
At least Christmas is looking promising. It may be freezing outside but things have definitely thawed between Cat and her mum, Mary. They’re actually getting on, especially now that Mary is dating Jeremy Stone, the builder working on Viola’s house.
Cat’s also hopeful that Viola’s situation may improve. And when a surprise visitor brings more than just well wishes, Cat’s Christmas takes a delightful turn.
With the festivities in full swing, and snow falling on Merriment Bay, the future’s looking bright. Christmas is a time for miracles and Cat believes she may get one of her own this year if she’s prepared to put the past behind her and open her heart to Love once more.
Book three in the sweet serial by Emily Harvale is not short on surprises. Cat and Kyra now know where Bailey Mitchell lives. Cat had no way of knowing that sending a letter to him will change her life in ways she never saw coming.
Just when it looks like she and Amias may finally reveal their feelings for one another, a possible new love interest enters her life…Bailey Mitchell’s grandson, Ben. He, his sister, and Bailey make the journey to see Viola.
Secrets are revealed, and the story moves along pretty quickly. There were times I wanted to take my Kindle and throw it across the room because of Cat and Amias! I have never run across two more obstinate characters in my life. I literally wanted to lock them in a room until they put all their cards on the table. However, that is the mark of a great writer, one who elicits emotions from his or her readers.
As with each book, it does end with some answers but it leaves some questions too. Don’t stress out too much…book 4 is out, and I have also read that one. All of your questions will be answered. Emily Harvale never disappoints!!!
