Bestselling author Alex Nelson is slowly coming apart at the seams after a failed marriage and an abrupt change in career leave him at a crossroads in life. When an unexpected opportunity arises to escape to the idyllic village of Mermaids Point, he’s hot on the heels of his brother, Tom, who has recently moved there. Buying a rundown bookshop might be just his latest harebrained scheme, but Alex has never been one to do things by halves.

After spending her early years caring for her mother, Ivy Fisher is finally ready to start living her own life. But when the impossibly charming, impossibly good-looking Alex Nelson swoops in and snatches her dream out from under her nose, it really is the last straw. Forced by circumstances to spend more time with him, Ivy finally gets a peek of the real man beneath the confident exterior, and she likes what she sees.

But just when things are starting to come together for them, Ivy is reminded why men can never be trusted. Is Alex who he says he is, or is he using Mermaids Point as nothing more than research fodder for his next bestseller?

We are back in Mermaids Point, and I for one have truly missed being there, we get to see all of our old favorites, but this time we get the Story of Ivy Foster, if you have read any of the series before, you remember that she was the seamstress that came and saved the day when a blanket was torn. But in Love Booms, we find ourselves in the middle of a sad time for Ivy; as heartbreakingly her mother passes on and Ivy is faced with the possibility of seeing her father and dealing with the house all by herself, but then at the doorbell rings and there stand Alex, ready to be a shoulder to cry-on and the person to protect her.

But Alex is not just a friend and the object of her hidden desire, he becomes a business partner of sorts, but Alex has secrets of his own, ones that he wasn't ready to reveal, but ones that were unfortunately revealed for him, but where does that leave Alex and Ivy?

I don't know if it's me that's just been dying for this book since Autumn Dreams, but from the moment  Alex met Ivy in the doorway of the kitchen, the sparks just flew, but oh! nothing truly prepared me for how their story truly was and just how much I came to love this book.

I give Love Blooms at Mermaids Point 5 stars.
