Book Review - Wedding Bells at Butterfly Cove by Sarah Bennett

 

Book review
By Anniek


Kiki is married to Neil and their marriage is anything but a fairytale. When she finds out what he's been up to behind her back Kiki decides that enough is enough. She's carefully planning her escape and waits until Neil is away for business. Kiki and her children go to her sister, Mia, who lives in Butterfly Cove. However, Kiki hasn't considered the fact that Mia doesn't have a room available for her and her children, but luckily one of Mia's best friends, Aaron, offers them a place to stay. Now that Kiki can finally breathe she needs to come to terms with everything that happened. Will Butterfly Cove be the safe haven she so desperately needs?

Kiki's husband treated Kiki like a doormat and he bullied Kiki and the children. Kiki has a tender heart and this made her an easy target. She always tries to see the good in people and has the need to please. I loved how she pulls herself together by eventually taking matters into her own hands. Kiki is stronger than she gives herself credit for and it was heartwarming to read about all the people who were there for her. I couldn't wait to find out if Butterfly Cove would be the place where Kiki and her kids could start a new life and find the happiness they deserve.

Aaron has been hurt in the past. His mother died when he was a child and his stepmother never fully accepted him. He always felt like he didn't matter. He has worked hard to be successful, but he never stood a chance when it came to finding unconditional love. Aaron is such a loving man. He took Kiki and her children in without even knowing them. Aaron loves to take care of people, but he's afraid to open his own heart. He still takes the chance though. Aaron is instantly taken by Kiki's beauty and he's very fond of her children. I loved it that Sarah Bennett takes the time to let Aaron and Kiki get to know each other. It made their story believable and sincere and it was amazing to feel so close to them as a reader.

Wedding Bells at Butterfly Cove is an incredibly sweet love story. I loved the wonderful atmosphere of the book. All of the people in Butterfly Cove are welcoming and kind. It felt like a place where I would love to live myself. I fell in love with the beautiful cottages Sarah Bennett describes and the stunning surroundings greatly impressed me. I also loved how she deals with difficult topics in an emphatic way, while managing to keep the story positive at the same time. Wedding Bells at Butterfly Cove is a delightful story with fascinating main characters, many interesting emotional layers and brilliant writing. This book is part of the Butterfly Cove series and I can't wait to find out what more Sarah Bennett has in store for her readers.

Advice

If you love heartwarming stories and small town romance Wedding Bells at Butterfly Cove will be a perfect choice. This book is part of a series, but can easily be read as a standalone.

  2. I'm glad that Kiki and Aaron gets to know each other first before any romance. The attraction is there but building a solid foundation is better for a satisfying relationship.
