    1. Mallory Westerman and her boyfriend, Sam, were just beginning their lives together and everything was going perfectly for them. The couple had just bought their dream home and were planning the rest of their lives when tragedy strikes. When Sam was late returning home Mallory was beginning to worry when there is a knock at the door and she gets the worse news of her life, Sam had been in an accident and didn't make it. With Mallory's world shattered she really doesn't know how she'll move on wit [...]

    2. Reading this book felt like watching one of the hundred chick flick, romance comedies that never make it to the screens but only come out in DVD or something, whose actors you've never heard of and you probably never will again either, that you randomly come across a lazy Saturday afternoon on TV and you end up watching just because there's really nothing else on. You might enjoy it, and have a pleasant time but it's still full of cliches and you'll still forget about it the moment it's over.I'm [...]

    3. This had been in my TBR list forever so when I saw it in the library I snatched it without a second thought. To be honest I cannot even remember why I added it to the TBR in the first place! it has glowing reviews but doesn’t look like anything special… Well, the point is I couldn’t read it. I tried, stopped at around 5%, went ahead and read all the spoilers, felt a little bit more interested, tried again, and stopped again around 10%. I don’t like the characters, I don’t like the writ [...]

    4. I've had this book recommended to me a few times now and I've added it to my list so I'm sharing the link in case you want to check it out as well. It's a standalone with a happy ending and readers have described it as an "emotional" and "feel-good" romance ♥

    5. This book begins as a nice little romance and then a couple of chapters in, bam, the story takes an unexpected twist and becomes a full-fledged, buy-stocks-in-a-tissues-company love story.I think the only way to adequately describe how emotionally gripping Bridge Over the Atlantic is, without giving too much away, is to say that Ms. Hobman has a bit of a Mr. Sparks thing going on.It'll make you believe in love.

    6. My first book and the equivalent to my novel 'baby'. I'm still crazy about Greg. So much so that he is getting his own book :-D

    7. I’ve just put this book down, realising that, unfortunately for me, I was at the end. I didn’t want it to be over. I wanted more laughter, more tears (okay maybe there were enough of those already) and more importantly, more Mally. I’m attempting to write a review without a single spoiler, but that’s really hard when all I want to do is talk about this amazing story and why I loved it so much. Lisa J Hobman lures you in with her beautiful prose, but you stay for the characters, the bloss [...]

    8. Bridge Over The Atlantic is a story about love and loss and finding happiness again amidst the pain. Wow! I don't even know where to begin because I literally have so many things to say about this wonderful story. I guess first I will say if you have seen the movie P.S. I Love you and bawled your eyes out for days like I did, then get ready for this book. It's heartbreaking, emotional and funny.When the story begins we find Mallory and her fiance Sam gearing up for a big move to Scotland to star [...]

    9. I’m not going to say anything much about the story because firstly I don’t want to give anything away and secondly because I really want readers to experience this the way I did. I want you to feel the ” gasp” moments I did and I don’t want to ruin those surprises in any way.Bridge Over The Atlantic was beautiful, heartfelt story about loving and living, growing and healing and finding happiness. Of moving on, never forgetting and not looking back.Mallory suffers with self esteem issue [...]

    10. Mallory "Mally" Westerman is happy with her life. She's the owner of a gift shop in Leeds, and gets on great with her best friend. She doesn't really have time for love. That is.until she meets charming Canadian Sam. They strike up a friendship which soon turns to more. The book is so romantic and I was hooked. Life is good for the happy couple who start to cement their dreams by traveling to Scotland on holidays. Their dream is to have a house in Scotland. When they find a cosy, whitewashed cot [...]

    11. 3.5★s for me.Mallory Westerman and Greg McBradden are two people trying to deal with the grief from losing the “love of their life”.Can circumstances change, and will they be able let go of the past and allow themselves to fall in love again?This story is set in a scenic seaside Scottish town, and so has the lovely “cosy” feel of community and the quirky characters who live there.Mallory & Greg are both likeable characters, well rounded and real. Both display the fear, joy & ho [...]

    12. I did not enjoy this book at all. It read like terrible online fan fiction and the descriptive language felt both repetitive and over the top. Don't waste your time or energy.I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley to review.

    13. I'm hanging my head in shame as I write this review. Lisa J Hobman has been a huge supporter of my blog for a long time now and it's taken me until now to discover what a talented author she is, but as the saying goes " better late than never " right ? Mallory and her fiancé decide to more from Yorkshire to the beautiful highlands of Scotland to pursue their dream but fate has a nasty way of changing their hopes and dreams in a heartbeat taking the reader on a journey to find love because love [...]

    14. Bridge Over the Atlantic is a beautiful story about love, and how it’s not always so simple and straight forward. When I started the book I thought I knew what it was going to be. Boy meets girl, they fall in love, they have some hardships but live happily ever after. Isn’t that the timeless formula for romance that we all love? But Lisa turned all my expectations around and showed me a story with so much more depth than I expected. There was heartache, tears, laughter. It’s been a while s [...]

    16. If you love romance and tragedy and believe in fate then this is the book got you. I fell in love with Mallory and Greg's love story. I laughed and cried with them, you could feel the pain that they were going though and just hoped that they would be ok. The author makes you want to go to Scotland and see all of the Loch's and scenery that the characters visit. I love how the author included Sam's family in to Mallory's life and made them her family also. This story proves that “Love Conquers [...]

    17. Absolutely loved this story about heartache, grief and finding new love. I think the fact they had both each lost someone they loved made the connection even more acute and becoming aware that they were developing feelings while helping each other through the grieving process made the story more emotional for me. They had their ups, downs and misunderstandings but got there eventually. Written with great words and emotion. Can not wait to read from Greg's POV.

    18. Loved it! I will admit I was rather upset at first, but Lisa was able to make me a fan of her writing abilities in relating a story that totally kept me on my toes! I love the way it went back and forth emotions did the same! Thanks Lisa for an amazing read!!!

    19. Amazing storylineLoved loved this story. It had everything I could want in a great book and more. Happiness, sadness and more happiness.

    20. I really thought I had already reviewed this. Great book with great characters and a perfect storyline. I loved everything about it xx

    21. The Blurb :Mallory Westerman is the successful proprietor of Le Petit Cadeau, a gift shop extraordinaire in thriving Leeds.Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally falls into the arms of a handsome, intriguing stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour.The whirlwind romance that ensues changes her life-path irrevocably. However, the road to true love is never smooth and things don't always turn out how you expect [...]

    22. This was lovely read with a whole mixture of emotions from sad, joyous, heart breaking and happiness. It really was an all round emotional read. I was shocked by what happened to Sam, very sad and emotional, it did make my eyes go a little teary. I sure wasn't expecting that to happen. It really is quite scary to think how quickly your life can change with just one event. I loved getting to know all of the different characters, seeing how they all interacted with each other and seeing how Mallor [...]

    23. Thank you so much to the Publisher and Netgalley for the arcI am a Cover Lover, and always have been a soft touch for a gorgeous cover, it even looks as if my little 15 year old Patterdale cross, Bertie has got a staring role on the cover of this book!! its not him but it really does look like him.A Seaside Escape did not disappoint, neither did the characters, they came over as “normal” who chatted about everyday things and laughed, cried and in general made this a very enjoyable book to re [...]

    24. ::Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers::I was very kindly provided with a Netgalley Arc in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 5 heart warming stars.I had the pleasure of reading this book when it was called "Bridge Over The Atlantic", now it's been spruced up, had a new name and been given a pretty new cover but do you know what? It's still the same beautifully heartwarming tale of love, loss and friendship.One of the things that has endeared this story to me is that the events of thi [...]

    25. A Seaside Escape by Lisa Hobman is a great read. An emotional journey of a woman losing her loved one. It was easy to relate to her loss, grief, and to understand some of her actions. A heartbreaking tale that felt realistic. I felt sympathy for Mallory. I can't imagine how hard it was for her. But at the same time, her journey seemed to drag. It was stretching the grief out as though it were a rubber band but without it ever breaking. There had to be an earlier time to let go of her past memori [...]

    26. Thank you to the Publisher, Netgalley and the author for providing a copy of this book in return for an honest review. I actually read this book when it was originally titled A Bridge Over the Atlantic so was eager to read the re-worked version to see how the story survived the changes. I'm so pleased to say that its still the beautiful romance it was originally. Mallory's story is one of love, loss and upheaval on her path to find herself again. The characters are very real and written so well [...]

    27. Thank you netgalley and the publishers for the review copy. I'm sorry to say that I struggled with this one. The cover and title interested me and reading the blurb it sounded promising. Truth of it was it read like a teen romance book, or even dare I say it a Mills & Boon novel. The writing seemed 'cheesy' and it just wasn't written in a style that I like to read. It's not to say that it isn't a good book, it just wasn't the book for me.

    28. I received an advanced reader copy from NetGalley and from the description had expected a fun chick lit romance. What I got was an incredibly dull read, and as someone on here has already said in their review (and I couldn't put it better myself) it reads like incredibly poor fan fiction. The language is more suitable to a teen / young adult novel and this didn't challenge me at all. I abandoned quarter of the way in because it's just not worth spending time on. Don't bother.

    29. Things don't always turn out as you'd expect! A Seaside Escape is a funny, poignant and beautiful story of love and loss, just like life. Mallory's story is life affirming and bursting with emotion that will have you reaching for the tissues. A very well told story perfect for reading on cold autumn nights by the fire.
