Welcome to my stop on the The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club Blog Tour, written by Lynsey James and published by Carina UK. I’m very pleased to be taking part on the tour organised by Neverland Blog Tours and hope you enjoy my review.
The perfect summer romance for a sunny afternoon and a picnic in the park
Emily Reed is having a bad day. Devastated at losing her hard-earned promotion to the ditz who’s sleeping with the boss, her mother drops a devastating bombshell—the dad she’s known and loved for twenty-five years isn’t her biological father.
Now Emily needs answers and a month in Luna Bay should give her the time she needs to find her father, and land the difficult client at the Sunflower Cottage B&B which should put her back in the running for her coveted promotion.
Setting up the Sunflower Cottage breakfast club should be a great way to meet the locals and maybe even find out who her father is! The only problem is that brooding and insanely gorgeous, Noah, is determined to make Emily’s stay perfectly uncomfortable.
Finding out the truth was never going to be simple, but she never thought her heart would get in the way…
Bringing us back to the lovely seaside town of Luna Bay, Lynsey James has done it again, creating a beautiful story full of humour, feel-good romance, and characters you can’t help but to feel an affinity with.
In The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club we are introduced to Emily, who after discovering her biological Father comes from Luna Bay, head there to close a work deal at the local B&B and to find out more about this mysterious man. What she doesn’t count on is meeting Noah, and feeling so at home in Luna Bay.
As the book unfolds there is plenty of humour, and some really moving moments. Lynsey is an expert at creating tense moments and leaving you reading desperately waiting for something to happen, unsure if it will.
As Emily negotiates her way through her emotions and her time in Luna Bay we see a woman who has prided herself on being a strong businesswoman but is actually extremely vulnerable and this is very well written and expressed.
The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club can be read as a standalone but is perfect as part of the Luna Bay series with updates on the characters from the first book which was a great addition.
This is the perfect summer read, it’s feel-good chick-lit at it’s best.
Thank you very much to Lynsey James and Carina UK for a copy of the novel via NetGalley to review this book honestly for the blog tour.

About Lynsey James:
Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She’s an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she’s sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)
A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left my job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.
When Lynsey’s not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she’s daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they’re meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…
