Blog Tour Book Review: The Bakery at Seashell Cove by Karen Clarke


I’m so excited to be closing out the blog tour for Karen Clarke’s The Bakery at Seashell Cove.

Karen Clarke has become a fast favorite. I read The Beachside Christmas and never looked back – she is an absolute sure thing and always delivers on the laughs while creating characters you really grow to love.

This is the second installment in the Seashell Cove series and I was so excited to be back with Cassie, Meg, and Tilly and to hear more about their lives and their antics.

I especially love how each book centers around one of the characters but the other central figures still play into the story. You get to see what they’re up to and get to enjoy them even more.

That being said, this one totally works as a stand-alone as well.

In this book, we get to learn more about Meg – her relationship with her fiancé, her love of baking, and her family life. There are several different story lines, all of which pulled at my heartstrings and had me rooting for Meg. Not to mention the food! I don’t even have a sweet tooth (I know, I’m strange!) but my mouth was watering at all the descriptions of the cakes and other goodies Meg was whipping up.

You really can’t go wrong with a Karen Clarke book, I can recommend all of her books confidently, and this one is no exception!

Thank you a mil to Bookouture for my copy of The Bakery at Seashell Cove, and for having me as apart of this blog tour with so many other great bloggers. This book is now available!


A warm welcome and delicious chocolate gateau are always on the menu at the Bakery at Seashell Cove – and this summer, romance is in the air…

Meg Larson thought she had everything she wanted: she works in the local bakery, she’s months away from marrying her high-school sweetheart, and home is beautiful, sunny Seashell Cove, where the sky is blue, the sea is turquoise and the sand is golden.

Except that the bakery is up for sale and her fiancé Sam’s more interested in bikes than their relationship. When Meg receives shocking news about her family, he’s on a cycling tour and ignoring her calls – and posting selfies on Facebook with a female cyclist he looks far too cosy with…

Luckily the bakery’s estate agent, Nathan, is understanding and funny, and as the summer goes on an unexpected friendship blossoms. When the bakery is given a second lease of life under a mysterious new owner, Meg realises a change might be exactly what she needs too.

Will Meg find the happy-ever-after she dreams of in Seashell Cove?
