Publisher Description

‘Sarah Bennett is back, and better than ever!’ Rachel Burton

When her dreams of young love were cruelly shattered, Nerissa Morgan found it hard to move on. Now, at forty-three, everyone around her is enjoying life while she’s just going through the motions. With her boss retiring and rumours of a new doctor coming in to take over the practice she manages, change is coming, whether she’s ready for it or not.

Following the death of his beloved wife, Tom Nelson buried himself in work at his busy inner-London GP practice. When his teenage children find themselves in trouble at school, he realises he’s completely lost touch with them. Desperate to reconnect before it’s too late, he whisks his family away to the pretty seaside village of Mermaids Point determined to make a fresh start.

But all is not as idyllic as it seems. With his predecessor reluctant to let go of the reins and the children as distant as ever, the last thing Tom needs is an undeniable attraction to the woman he unexpectedly finds himself sharing a roof with…

Warm, escapist, feel-good and altogether brilliant story-telling from bestselling author Sarah Bennett. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley and Milly Johnson.

A Lovely Sweet Romance

Autumn Dreams at Mermaids Point by Sarah Bennett is the second book in her Mermaid’s Point series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone book. I really enjoyed this book, it has everything I love in a book. A beautiful coastal village, a cast of interesting characters, and a lovely, sweet romance.

Nerissa Morgan has lived in Mermaids Point her entire life. At age 43, she still works at the local doctor’s surgery in town, as a receptionist and housekeeper for the old, and soon to be retired, Doc Gadd. Her first and only love, Garreth, died after leaving for the Army when they were both young, and she has never found anyone who she can love as much as she loved him.

Tom is the single father of two teenagers living in London while he works in a thriving General Practice as one of the partners of the clinic. His wife and the mother of his two children died three years ago, and he is still grieving her loss, as are his children. After some issues at his children’s school, he decides to go to Mermaids Point to answer an advertisement for a new GP at the surgery in town. Tom and his kids, Emily and Max, explore the village and decide to move there and take over the Surgery from the old doctor. Of course, the surgery practice comes with the live-in housekeeper and receptionist Nerissa. Can Tom and Nerissa live in the same house, and work together while denying the growing attraction between each other?

I enjoyed this refreshing story about two lonely people, who don’t need or want anyone else in their lives as they both have already had and lost the love of their lives. When they meet, it’s an instant attraction, but they both struggle to shed the memories of their past loves to learn to love again. I felt so strongly for both Nerissa and Tom, and couldn’t wait for them to figure out they are so right for each other. I also enjoyed Tom’s children, Max and Emily as they also struggled with their ongoing grief and the sudden changes to living in a small village.

The author skillfully described the little village and the townspeople so well that I was transported to this seaside sanctuary. Once I started reading on the first page, the rest of the book flew by as I was transported to the lovely little village and met the friendly people of Mermaids Point. All her characters are well developed and sympathetic, and I loved every one of them.

I highly recommend Autumn Dreams at Mermaids point to anyone who loves a story of loss and love in a quaint picturesque village. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
