Coming Home to Merriment Bay: Part Two: Sparks Fly

by Emily Harvale 


Part Two 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 Devon knew she couldn’t avoid Amias Wells for long. She also knew sparks would fly the moment they came face to face. They never did get on and nothing has changed in eighteen years – except that Amias is even more annoying. So why does Cat still catch her breath whenever he looks her way?

The fact he flies a vintage Spitfire for the Merriment Bay WWII Museum doesn’t interest Cat, but his knowledge of the former RAF pilots stationed there certainly does. She wants to find out all she can about the man in the photo in Viola’s trunk. And what with hospital visits, dealing with her mum, and sorting out problems with Viola’s house, Cat could use more than just Kyra’s help.

But Kyra makes it clear she thinks Cat and Amias should spend more time together. Which is ridiculous. Apart from the fact they don’t get on, Amias wasn’t interested in Cat before the accident that left the ugly scars on her face and body, so he definitely won’t be attracted to her now. Besides, Cat’s not looking for romance. She’s happy with her life just the way it is.

Christie’s Review



This is the second installment in the Merriment Bay series and continues right where book 1 ended. 

Cat and her daughter, Kyra, are trying to figure out the identity of the man in an old photo and the author of some letters of Cat’s grandmother. She has relented and has agreed to ask Amias to help her. If you read book 1, you know these two have a very complicated relationship. 

The book is short, but it is packed full of substance. I can’t really go into much detail because I don’t want to spoil anything. I will say that Emily Harvale picked the perfect title for this one, “Sparks Fly.” The sparks definitely fly between Cat and Amias, and I’m really interested to see the journey they are going to take together. 

Harvale has a talent of giving her readers just enough to keep us coming back for more. I will definitely keep coming back for more, and I can’t wait to read the next installment.
