Make or Break at the Lighthouse B&B by Portia Macintosh

15th February 2020

Welcome to beautiful Hope Island, where the sun is shining, the locals are welcoming, and Lola is about to find a second chance at love…

Thirty-one-year-old matchmaker Lola James had it all – until she broke her leg at a wedding and discovered that her so-called ‘best friend’ was suddenly too busy to call, her flat had far too many steps, and her boyfriend replaced her quicker than you can say ‘crutches’.

And so she’s back at her parents’ B&B, sleeping in the living room (she can’t get upstairs) and having her hair washed by her mum (she can’t get in the shower).

Freshly single and with a lot of time on her hands, Lola is only too pleased to run into gorgeous Dr Will, an old friend who has definitely improved with age… And then there’s Dean, a divorcé who’s convinced he’s better off alone – no matter how lonely he is.
Can Will help mend Lola’s broken heart as well as her leg? Can she help Dean find love? As a wise man once said, sometimes the one for you is right under your nose, all along…

An uplifting, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Holly Martin and Jo Watson.


This is everything you could want in a fun, romantic, quick read and it comes neatly wrapped up with this stunning cover. This is the perfect read for the month of love or for any time you just want to escape into a beautifully described setting with some witty character interactions.

As I started reading this I thought that I was going to struggle with the main character as she seemed superficial and naive but once she was back in her home setting she became a much more likeable and savvy character.

Some of the dialogue was a little cringe at times but there were also some giggles and heart felt moment between the (digital) pages.

I have since found out that although this is a stand alone book there other books written by the author set in the same location an some of the characters that pop up in this are cameo appearances and I will definitely be checking them out!

Thanks to Harper Collins for the copy in exchange for review.
