Part Four of this heartwarming four-part serial about finding the strength to put the past behind you and to reach out for a future filled with happiness and love.

Cat is reeling from the unexpected events of Christmas and as Merriment Bay prepares to toast in the New Year, she’s facing choices she never thought she’d have to make. Her head and her heart are pulling her in very different directions.

Bailey is sitting by Viola’s bedside, regaling everyone with tales from the past but is there any chance he’ll get to see a smile on the lips of the woman he still loves?

Having realised she has made mistakes, will Mary finally tell Cat what she really wants to know?

And what will the New Year bring for Kyra? Will she fulfil the plans she made before she came to Merriment Bay?

When distressing events end more than one person’s dream, can Cat find the strength to fight for the Love she deserves?

Sometimes it takes a crisis to make someone realise what they truly want. And Cat has decided what – and who – that really is. But is she too late?

This is Part Four of a new, four-part serial. The parts are:

Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part One: A Reunion
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Two: Sparks Fly
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Three: Christmas
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Four: Starry Skies


This is the fourth of Emily Harvale’s Merriment Bay series which is interconnected to her Wyntersleap series. Each series can be read alone, but several characters appear in both series.

A Fitting Finale to a Fabulous Series!      Stars 5


A fitting finale to what has been a fabulous series!

Once more we return to Merriment Bay to catch up with the lives of Cat and her family. With Granny Viola still in hospital and Bailey and his grandchildren visiting from Canada, they have more than enough to worry about. Then there’s the question of Amias; still in the background, still hiding his passion for a relationship with Cat . . .

This has been a fantastic, feel-good series – made all the more appealing by the cross-action with the author’s Wyntersleap books. Emily Harvale is a favourite author of mine; she writes such readable books, all with great characters in immensely different settings and I always jump at the chance to review her latest. If you enjoy a light, easy read but with plenty of substance, which always ties up all the loose ends and leave you with a warm, cosy feeling then this is an author for you! I adored everything about this, and hope to follow the rest of the Wyntersleap series as they become available. Definitely a full five flashing stars!

My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour. All stated opinions are completely honest and entirely my own.
