Hide Away by the Sea by L.P. Dover Release Blitz

Hide Away by the Sea. New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author. L.P. Dover.

From New York Times bestselling author L.P. Dover comes a compelling tale of intrigue, hidden family secrets, and long overdue second chances.

Everleigh Abbott – born and bred in Oak Island, N.C. – always had a dream of going off to college and making a difference in the world.

Presented with the opportunity to attend the university with the top surgical program in the country, she couldn’t pass it up. Even though it meant leaving her family and Jensen McLean – the man she loved – behind. The couple knew the distance would come between them, yet Jensen had no choice but to stay in Oak Island and take over his family’s business.

Twelve years later, Everleigh’s a well-respected neurosurgeon in Boston and living the life she’s always wanted. However, when her grandmother passes, Everleigh learns she's been left everything, including the beach house. What she soon realizes is that there are secrets hidden within the house, secrets that could change everything. It all leads to a tragic past that brings Everleigh face to face with her only regret.

Jensen McLean has devoted his life to making his family business the best on the North Carolina coast. When he finds out Everleigh is back in town, he refuses to waste the chance to see her again. More than anything he longs to show her what she’s missed and help her realize Oak Island is her true home. Little do either of them know, the mysteries hidden at the beach house will reveal truths that connect them in ways they never thought possible.

Patience was something I didn’t have. I had less than two months to make Everleigh realize we were meant to be together. That didn’t give me much time.

Hide Away by the Sea is the first book in the Oak Island series. It's a second-chance, low-angst read.

Everleigh and Jensen have been best friends for years. Right before she is ready to head off to Boston to follow her dreams, they share one night together. She hates leaving Jensen behind, but she needs to follow her dreams and become a surgeon. Twelve years later, she's living the life she has always wanted when she finds out her grandmother has died and left everything in North Carolina to her. Going back to that small town isn't what she imagined, but seeing Jensen and almost picking up right where they left off is almost like fate.

L.P. Dover has you quickly falling for this seaside small town. I loved that this was a second-chance romance, but it almost felt like a friends-to-lovers considering how things were left. Everleigh and Jensen were able to pick up that friendship and move it to the next level. It's a very low-angst read that is perfect for a summer beach read!

I can't wait to see what's next for this series!

This is an entertaining story about two people who were too young to grab hold of the special love they had and needed to stretch their wings. Now that they are back in the same town, we just have to see how they find their way back together.

Everleigh has a successful career but no life, so when her plans to finally spend time with her grandmother instead end up with her at her dearest relative’s funeral, she is adrift. Being back home inevitably brings her in contact with her first love, Jensen. They have a chance to get it right, and Jensen is not giving up this time.

I enjoyed the underlying story, even if a few bits didn’t really hang together as I expected. What did frustrate me, though, was the incredible levels of descriptive detail. I love imagining where characters are and how they have dressed if it is relevant to the scene, but not constantly. I don’t need to know the colour of every curtain either. Sometimes setting the scene is invaluable, other times it just cuts away from the story. There is plenty of story here, so it became distracting.

So many lovely things about life on Oak Island – and a slew of entertaining characters too – I am rather looking forward to going back and enjoying the next romance which is hinted at…



A part of me wanted to tell him not to leave… But I was afraid. I hated that I was terrified of the unknown.
