Meant to Be by Melody Grace Book Summary

Escape to Cape Cod with this feel-good contemporary romance from one of the writers of Netflix’s hit series, BRIDGERTON.  

"If you like Sweet Magnolias and Virgin River, you'll fall in love with Sweetbriar Cove!" 

Poppy Somerville believes in happily-ever-after. It’s the reason her romance novels have won devoted readers all over the world – and why she’s broken off her engagement just weeks before the wedding instead of settling for less than true love. Escaping to her aunt’s beach cottage in Sweetbriar Cove, Poppy is looking for inspiration to break her writer’s block and finish her new book. She just wasn’t counting on the handsome, gruff contractor making such a racket next door…

Cooper Nicholson doesn’t believe in soul-mates. He thought he’d found his forever once, and the world proved him wrong, so when the cute brunette comes storming over and demands he keep the noise down, romance is the last thing on his mind. But his new neighbor is full of surprises, and soon, their chemistry is too hot to ignore. 

As they grow closer, they discover fiction has nothing on the plot twists life has in store. But will Cooper find a way to let go of the past and risk his heart again? And can Poppy find her happy ending – on and off the page?

Wecome To Sweetbriar CoveMEANT TO BE is the first book in the new Sweetbriar Cove series by author Melody Grace, and I am in love. A huge fan of Melody's Beachwood Bay/Callahan and Oak Harbor series, I was super-excited to see that she was starting with a whole new set of books. Although this is just the first book, it's full of Melody's signature themes of community, friendship, and love, and is filled with characters that I'd want to spend time with, quirky, caring, and fun to be around. I love Poppy. She's going through what I feel like all authors must. Prolific in her life as a romance author, she's finally experiencing the dreaded writer's block, at the same time that she questions her own life and whether or not happily ever afters do exist. A retreat to her aunt's cottage in lovely Sweetbriar Cove is just what the doctor ordered. Except that that darned block is going nowhere, and, to top things off, there's that darned Cooper Nicholson, working on the house right next door. Cooper was Poppy's childhood nemesis, and things aren't looking much better in the 'gosh, he's annoying' department. Except that now Cooper is a lot hotter and sexier than then Cooper, and keeps turning up like the proverbial bad penny. Cooper. Mmm, Cooper. He's sexy, he's self-employed, he's settled. What's not to like? Poppy's arrival upsets his normal, though, and he's not quite ready for all of the things that she makes him feel. Because, attraction and friendship, he's all in. But, happily ever after? That's for other people. Until a certain romance writer makes him question everything that he thinks he knows about relationships and love. This book was like a treat for me. I devoured it from cover to cover, like it was my favorite dark chocolate. I am absolutely head-over-heels for Poppy, Cooper, and the rest of the folks from Sweetbriar Cove, and I sort of wish that I could drop in and hang out with them. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated that Melody, herself a writer of romance novels, wrote Poppy as a woman that isn't sure whether she believes that the sort of love that she's writing about is possible in real life. I mean, talk about a crisis of belief. And, as a firmly avowed lover of the HEA, I couldn't have been happier that Poppy and Cooper became a vivid example that it is possible when the right one comes along. MEANT TO BE is an easy 5-star read for me, and left me already hungry for the next book in the series. There are plenty of folks that need their story, and I can't wait to see who Melody writes about next. Sweetbriar Cove is one of my new favorite places, and I can't recommend enough that you add this one to your TBR. You'll be glad that you did..Score: 5/5

FantasticA brand new series from this author and if this book is anything to go by I couldn't be more excited! The writing as expected was excellent and I loved the characters, both the main H/h and the secondary characters which should gives us some fantastic books in the future. In this book we have Poppy Somerville. She a romance author who has come to Sweetbriar Cove to work on her next book. Calling off her own wedding just weeks before the big day seems to have thrown her brain into a writer's block nightmare. When an ungodly racket wakes her the first morning she comes face to face with Cooper Nicholson. Poppy remembers Cooper from summers visiting her aunt as a kid but this Cooper is no kid! While these two have an immediate attraction there is just a little problem. She's a hopeless romantic and he doesn't believe in happily ever afters. Put this on the must read list. I highly recommend it..Score: 5/5

Sweet and RomanticThis was a new author to me and I m so pleased I found her. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet and romantic story; the first in a new series. This is the story of romance writer Poppy Sommerville who comes to Sweetbriar Cove to recover from a broken engagement and hopefully move past her writer's block. When she runs into an old friend Cooper Nicholson, little does she know that her world is about to change. Poppy believes in what she writes, the happily ever after and that there is a special person who will make her life complete. Cooper on the other hand was badly burnt when his last serious relationship ended abruptly. He doesn't believe in the “one” or relationships in general Despite doing their level best to ignore each other and their mutual attraction, Poppy and Cooper are continually drawn to one another. When they eventually give in, the chemistry between these two is off the charts. Will they be able to make this work, or will Cooper's fear of failure lead to a parting of the ways? Will Poppy be able to finish the series her desperate readers are waiting for, or will love get in the way? I will certainly be looking to read the next book in the series along with other books from Melody Grace..Score: 4/5
