About the Author
Family, friends, food, a glass of bubbly and, of course, a good book make me smile. I love writing emotional stories about love, loss, betrayal, and family that explore how complex and yet beautiful love can be. I also like to write romantic comedy, letting the characters have a bit of fun too! I believe in following your dreams, which led me here to Harper Impulse and a publishing deal after many years of writing. Stunning Northumberland is my home – sandy beaches, castles and gorgeous countryside that have inspired my writing.

My Summer of Magic Moments: Uplifting and romantic - the perfect, feel good holiday read! based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Claire deserves some peace and quiet after having a tough time. That's why she rents a cottage near Bamburgh. The cottage is basic and hasn't been updated in a long time, but it has a gorgeous seaside view. It also comes with another benefit, a handsome neighbor. Ed isn't easy to read, he's kind one moment and distant the next. He and Claire do have something in common though, they're both survivors. Claire's holiday only lasts three weeks and she hopes it will be enough to recharge her batteries. She makes a list of her magic moments, so she can write about them later. Claire is a journalist and honestly tells her readers what's going on in her life. She shares the good and the bad. She knows that after a blissful holiday in her seaside cottage the time will come to go home again. Will she ever see Ed again or will he just become a beautiful summer memory? My Summer of Magic Moments is a fantastic story. I greatly admired Claire. She's incredibly brave, she's open and she knows what's important in life. She's a breast cancer survivor and Caroline Roberts writes about that in a fantastic emphatic and realistic way. She doesn't stay away from the bad things in life, but she makes sure the good moments are getting plenty of attention as well. Claire is ready for a fresh start and that's when she meets Ed. Ed is a brooding man. It's clear he struggles and the sweet Claire is exactly what he needs. I loved the delicate and careful bond they're forming. It's perfect for the story and Caroline Roberts describes it in an impressive natural way that melted my heart. Caroline Roberts has written a very special story. Her main characters are strong and vulnerable at the same time, which is a stunning contrast. I loved the magic moments that are being shared in My Summer of Magic Moments, they're touching and they're giving the story something extra that immediately enchanted me. The atmosphere of My Summer of Magic Moments is sometimes dark, but mostly it's light and hopeful, while it's a story about the difficult things in life it's also a story about the most impressive and memorable moments. I absolutely loved this precious moving, magical book, it's truly amazing.
