Finding Love at Mermaid Terrace by Kate Forster

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing "Finding Love at Mermaid Terrace" by Kate Forster.  What can I say other than I loved it and read in one day.  Who doesn’t want to escape to a small Cornish village by the sea...

Love comes when you least expect it...

Tressa Buckland likes her quiet life in Port Lowdy, with its cobbled streets and colourful terraced houses overlooking the sea. Her job at the local paper allows her to pursue her art in her free time, with no one but her tabby cat Ginger Pickles to mind her in Mermaid Terrace. But then the owner of the paper is called away on an emergency, and it's up to Tressa to run the paper for six months. Her first task: find a new part-time journalist.

Dan Byrne is the angriest man in Ireland – or so the readers of his very successful column, 'Dan takes on the world', think. But after a story goes south and he loses his job in Dublin, Dan has no choice but to start afresh. When an opportunity comes up in sleepy Cornwall, Dan and his Golden Retriever Ritchie set off for a new adventure.

For Tressa, Dan's arrival to Port Lowdy changes everything. Tressa tries not to look too deeply at her own life, but Dan sees a story to uncover in absolutely everyone – even her. The two of them couldn't be more different... yet, if they can find a way to work together, they may just breathe new life and joy into this sleepy seaside village.

Finding Love at Mermaid Terrace is a heartwarming new village romance about the power of love and kindness, from the bestselling author of Starting Over at Acorn Cottage.


The setting of a tiny village called Port Lowdy sounded breathtaking, I could picture it especially as I have visited small villages along the Cornish coast.  It had everything you could want in a story love, regret, laughter, sadness, forgiveness, friendships and families as well as a cat named Ginger Pickles and Ritchie the dog.

I found the characters to be well developed, and multi-dimensional. There were multiple sub-plots to keep you engaged and interested in the outcome. I must admit I choked up and even shed a in a  few spots always a sign of a good story that touches your heart.

I will definitely read other books by this author.

I highly recommend this author.

I requested and received an advance reader copy of this book from Aria and Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
