Summer Serendipity at the Twist and Turn Bakery – Helen J Rolfe


(Heritage Cove series, Book 3)
Description: It’s summer in Heritage Cove, the picturesque village by the sea. Join some of your favourite characters and welcome new faces in this uplifting, romantic read brimming with character, community and friendship…

The Heritage Bakery is finally getting the makeover it deserves, with sisters Jade and Celeste modernising the place and putting their own stamp on it while retaining all the charm of days gone by. But Jade has far more planned than a brand-new kitchen and fancy cake designs. She’s ready for an even bigger change in her life. It’s almost time to take the next step and she knows just what to do to make that happen.

Etna owns the village tea rooms and when she hears that local man Harvey is looking for a labourer to help him renovate the bakery after being let down at the last minute, she suggests to her nephew Linc that it may just be the change he needs to get his head straight. Linc arrives in the Cove willing to give it a go and he works hard, but what he hadn’t envisaged was anything bordering on a romance – not with his track record or what he’s involved in right now.

When a tall, dark, handsome stranger appears in the village and turns Jade’s world upside down, will it be enough to make her abandon her plan before she even sets the wheels in motion? And has Linc missed his chance to tell her how he really feels?

It’s almost time for the wedding of the year for one of the village favourites and the annual Wedding Dress Ball. But when the sun begins to set, will anyone else be lucky in love?

Why we liked it

Summer Serendipity at the Twist and Turn Bakery is Book 3 in a series of novels set in Heritage Cove, but it also works very well as a standalone novel; if you enjoy this as much as we did, you may want to visit the earlier novels in the series. We love the way that Helen has created such a believable village community full of delightful characters.

Taking a sensitive approach to relationships, Helen is a very natural writer and always writes with warmth and Summer Serendipity at the Twist and Turn Bakery is another uplifting example. A perfect summer read!  Highly Recommended!
