Della Galton’s book, Shooting Stars Over Bluebell Cliff was so enjoyable that I gladly offered to take part in the blog tour for Sunrise Over Pebble Bay.

My Review of Sunrise Over Pebble Bay
Olivia Lambert is a really talented and busy woman. Trying hard to land a part as an actress, she runs a bakery where she turns out cakes that are masterpieces!
Having ended her relationship with her childhood sweetheart and fiancé, Tom Boyd, because of his hesitancy to commit to starting a family, Olivia is very careful in her new relationship with Phil Grimshaw. Phil is an actor too but works as a maître d’hôtel. He doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to settle down either, but Olivia is too busy and quite raw from her break-up to want more.
When Phil decides to make an appearance again, things get complicated. Olivia has to choose between a person who has broken her heart before and steady, supportive Phil.
Olivia is longing to be a mother, but with her reaching her 40th birthday, she sees no hope of that. I could really empathize with her trying to make a successful career, but also wondering whether this dream of hers will come to pass.
How Olivia and her more successful sister re-discover each other and heal their past and move forward is another aspect of the story I enjoyed.
I love the character of Olivia and Phil, but also Olivia’s aunt – her confidant and supporter.
This a lovely wholesome read. Friendship. Family. Romance. And a deeper message about letting go and letting life lead you.
