Book Review: Honeybee Cottage by KT Dady *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of Honeybee Cottage by KT Dady ahead of the blog tour.

This is part of a series, although all of the books can easily be read as standalones. I will definitely be reading more as I thoroughly enjoyed Honeybee Cottage. Cosy up in a nest of cushions and prepare to hurt from smiling.

Honeybee Cottage by KT Dady book cover

Welcome to Pepper Bay. A small close-knit community where you’ll find chocolate box cottages, quaint shops, drama, friendship, and love.

Snuggle down with this cosy, feel-good, comfort read that whisks you away to a beautiful bay on the Isle of Wight – Perfect for fans of Christie Barlow, Phillipa Ashley, and Holly Martin.

The Pepper Bay books are standalone stories that intertwine with recurring characters.

The last time Joey Walker watched Josh Reynolds leave Pepper Bay was three years ago. She decided there and then that the next time he visited she would never in a million years, even if her life depended on it, sleep with him ever again. She was done with secretly being in love with him. She couldn’t keep falling into his arms every time he was around. Josh was never going to see her as anything more than a holiday fling, or a sure thing. She had made her decision and had happily stuck to it, but only because he wasn’t around. She soon realises just how hard keeping him at arm’s length actually is when he unexpectedly turns up just before Christmas.

Josh had always loved Joey, but he knew she never took him seriously. She had no reason to. Growing up, he only went to his grandmother’s family home in Pepper Bay for the summer. As an adult, he knew that the world viewed him as a playboy heir to his grandfather’s millions. This year, he was determined to prove just how reliable he could be. He was back, and on a secret mission to get Joey to fall in love with him, because she was all he had ever wanted.

5 Word Review: Friendship, community, family, belonging, love.

Cottagecore, but as a contemporary romantic comedy.

I never knew it was what I needed, but er... It was. And it was perfect.

Pepper Bay is like the most perfect place ever. I want to move there, please. Specifically to the cosy cottage. The story is barely barely Christmassy, so perfect for picking up now.

This is the type of rom-com to make your grin so big it hurts your cheeks. By the end my muscles ached from smiling so much, and honestly? I felt a bit sad. I didn't want the sheer jot of this story to end. It is so sweet and fun and perfect for reading on a rainy day. You can't help but be cheered up by it.

The old-friends to lovers trope worked beautifully for Josh and Joey, and the way the story switched back and forth between them had me addicted - I loved the fact that I could see the whole story before the characters, that I knew their feelings even if they were still figuring them out themselves.

KT Dady is a new to me author, but one I will definitely be reading more of. Honeybee Cottage was excellent!
