What if Diana could travel from Kansas to California and start her life over after a series of excruciatingly painful events?
What if she could find true love again?
This is the first Beach House series book that I’ve read, so I have to admit that I had a hard time keeping up with some of the characters carried over from earlier releases. But I loved the story from the very beginning and was taken in by the wonderful description and scenery the author evoked. It’s a heartfelt story about new beginnings and finding love when and where you least expect it. I laughed and I cried – couldn’t put it down. The Cottage Next Door is a perfect short read that has me picking up books 1 and 2 for my TBR pile.
I give it 4 Red Pumps!
The Cottage Next Door, a Beach House novella, by Georgia Bockoven
What should have been the best day in Diana Wagnor’s twenty-nine years easily turns into the worst when her job is downsized, she discovers her fiancé in bed with her best friend, and watches her cherished grandmother’s house burn to the ground.
Clearly it’s time to start over and get out of Topeka, Kansas, where she’s spent her whole life. But what should she do? And how does she ever trust herself in another relationship when her one indisputable skill seems to be picking the wrong man?
Diana finds her answers at the cottage next door to the beach house with the help of a tall, sculptured, soft-spoken Californian, and a heart-shaped piece of sea glass.
