Book review: Meet Me in Cockleberry Bay by Nicola May

Meet Me in Cockleberry Bay

The cast of the runaway bestseller, The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay, are back – including Rosa, Josh, Mary, Jacob, Sheila, new mum Titch and, last but by no means least, Hot, the adorable dachshund.

Newly wed, and with her inherited corner shop successfully up and running, Rosa Smith seems to have all that anyone could wish for. But the course of true love never did run smooth and Rosa’s suspicions that her husband is having an affair have dire consequences.

Reaching rock bottom before she can climb back up to the top, fragile Rosa is forced to face her fears, addiction and jealousy head on.

With a selection of meddling locals still at large, a mystery fire and Titch’s frantic search for the real father of her sick baby, the second book in this enchanting series will take you on a further unpredictable journey of self-discovery.

My thoughts...

This book has an abundance of heart and soul that swept me up in its midst and took me on a journey that warmed my heart. The writing was open and inviting with a laid back, easy charm.

The narrative was overflowing with wit and entertainment and I found myself drawn into the story from the word go. I fell in love with life in Cockleberry Bay and all who reside there. Each and every character was created with endearing quirks that had me smiling every time I turned the page.

Rosa was instantly likeable as far as leading ladies go. Her history is not all hearts and roses and I really felt for her daily struggles to make the right choices in life, which were both brave and inspirational.

Meet Me in Cockleberry Bay is bursting at the seams with love and life and I enjoyed each and every moment of it. Nicola May has an exceptionally warm way with words and I for one cannot wait to read more from her in the future..... especially if Hot is thrown into the mix for extra added dachshund cuteness.

Thank you to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources for letting me take part in this tour.
