Coming Home to Seashell Harbor by Miranda Liasson

Coming Home to Seashell Harbor. New Release!

An emotional novel about first love, second chances, and what it means to follow your heart from this award-winning author who "writes with humor and heart" (Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author).

Hadley Wells swapped her dreams of saving the planet for the glamour of Hollywood. But when a very public breakup reveals cracks in her not-so-perfect life, she returns to her hometown to reassess what it is she truly wants. Unfortunately, Seashell Harbor has some trouble of its own—including the first man to ever break her heart.

A serious injury forced footballer Tony Cammareri into early retirement—now he’s determined to reboot his life with a splashy new restaurant venture. He knows better than to expect a happy reunion with Hadley, but he’s determined to make up for the way things ended between them. Yet when Tony and Hadley end up vying for control of the town’s future, they find themselves once again on opposing sides.

As their rivalry intensifies, they must decide what’s worth fighting for—and what it truly means to be happy.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I really enjoyed this book. It contains many tropes which I gravitate towards, although at times I felt maybe too many, as the story became ever more involved with almost bluff and double bluff feel to the outcomes of certain plans and plots. The underlying story between Hadley and Tony was fun and sweet and undoubtedly destined for success, but getting there was certainly complicated!

Tony is a retired-too-soon-injured NFL player come home with plans to set up a restaurant chain and capitalise on his name. Whilst he has a love of cooking instilled by his Italian family, it is to provide his sister with an opportunity that he wants this to be his future. That his first love, Hadley, is now back in town and has an interest in the site he has earmarked for his new project is beyond annoying.

Hadley is keen to escape the media after a bad break-up with a movie star, so when her grandma needs help after a fall, she is delighted of the excuse to go home. Not so delighted to find Tony is in town and wants to buy her gran's pooch parlour shop.

Cue an adventure with plenty of cute, and not so cute, dogs, good food, reservations about the future, and a very meddling granny!

3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars

This second-chance romance is filled with anger and misunderstandings that take a while to resolve but makes the book so much better. Both Cam and Hadley have been hurt publicly but in different ways. Cam's career-ending injury has forced him back home to reevaluate his life and priorities. Hadley's love affair with an A-list movie star was torn apart when he publicly began dating his co-star and left her in the dust. With the paparazzi never letting up and unable to do her job as a PR whiz, she had no choice but to return home to lick her wounds in private.

Neither Hadley or Cam expected to find each other in Seashell Harbor nor fighting over the building her grandmother owned. Unable to deal with the way Cam had left her so many years ago, Hadley confronted him about everything from the sticky note to how he was dog-sitting her grandmother's dog. Cam knew what he did was wrong, but Hadley, then and now, deserved so much better than him.

This book allowed the characters to resolve their past hurts and to learn how each of them had grown during their years apart. Each are stubborn in their own way but in the end, love conquers all.

Hadley had loved him. If you could say that what they’d felt for each other at that age had been love. He wasn’t sure, but it was the closest he’d ever come.
