Autumn Dreams at Mermaids Point by Sarah Bennett

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.

My Thoughts


The Mermaid’s Point Series by Sarah Bennett has been a long standing favourite of mine and one that I eagerly anticipate future additions to this delightful collection of books, and this latest instalment certainly does not disappoint.

This story focuses on Nerissa and Tom, two individuals who make an appearance in one another’s lives when they needed it the most. Nerissa has never really got over the heartbreak she faced all those years ago and this is ultimately something that makes her keep her heart locked up with no desire to let anyone in again as that way she can’t get hurt.

However, her plan is derailed when the village’s new GP Tom arrives along with his children, and with him now taking over the practice that Nerissa runs they find themselves being thrown into one another’s orbits time and time again.

Tom has certainly not had things easy himself, all of which has prompted his move to the small seaside village. All he really wants to do is reconnect with his children, and he hopes more than anything that this picturesque setting is just the place they need tk begin living again. When the woman who is running the surgery he now works in getting under his skin in every way imaginable, it is clear that he going to have a lot to think about over the coming weeks.

As always, Sarah Bennett has created a story that is overflowing with Drama and romance. The plot is perfection with the story flowing effortlessly from beginning to end. Accompanied by a cast of much loved, wonderfully vibrant characters this is one of those feel good reads that has your heart bursting with joy.
