Escape to the Highland Coral Beach and let the sunshine warm your heart...
Beatrice Halliday needs a holiday. Booking a trip to the Highlands on a whim, Beatrice hopes learning Gaelic in a beautiful Scottish coastal village will be just the change her life needs.
But Port Willow Bay isn’t exactly as the website promised... Instead of learning a new language, she’s booked in to learn the ancient skill of willow weaving, her hotel room is Princess and the Pea themed (with a stack of mattresses for her bed!) and her tutor is Atholl Fergusson, grumpy - but utterly gorgeous - landlord of the hotel where Beatrice is staying. Worse still, she’s the only one booked on the course, meaning lots of time spent up close with Atholl (and his mesmerising blue eyes).
But as Beatrice finds herself falling in love with Port Willow Bay and its people, and as she discovers the kind heart beneath Atholl’s stony exterior, can she really leave?
Escape to the beautiful Scottish Highlands with this utterly romantic, feelgood book; one visit to Port Willow Bay and you’ll want to come back! Fans of Sarah Morgan, Carole Matthews and Holly Martin will be captivated.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In this heartfelt and emotional romance, Scottish author Kiley Dunbar explores what it means to grieve, and then to heal. The first in the Port Willow Bay series—and set mainly in the Scottish Highlands—Summer at the Highland Coral Beach introduces us to the charming Bea and stoic hotel landlord Atholl, who’s teaching the willow weaving course Bea has booked on to. The tragic motivation behind her last-minute escape and desire to learn a new skill unravels as this novel develops, with an unexpected relationship blossoming. Filled with an array of characters, each drawn with wit and humour, this is a warm, funny and endearing book, filled with love and charm in every chapter.
Having discovered I have a wee bit of Scottish blood, I now understand my infatuation with movies and books of Scotland! I enjoy the brogue and kilts and manly men!
Enjoyed this story of sadness and new found love.

This book was a little different getting into it, but once there I couldn’t stop. It felt so real sometimes and I did enjoy it and was sad with it too. A really good read.
