My Thoughts…

There’s nothing like flowers and a picturesque island to make you think of Spring and the second book in the Little Cornish Isles series – ‘The Flower Farm’ does that. If you’ve read the first book in the series ‘The Driftwood Inn’, you’ll remember that Will and Jess run the flower farm on St Saviour.

Jess thought she’d found ‘the one’ but Adam’s behaviour changes without explanation, he leaves, and she is heartbroken.

Will is all about work but meeting Gaby makes him question his outlook on life but it’s complicated, she’s a temporary worker on the flower farm, so he’s her boss, and she’s not planning to stay around, maybe it’s best if he does nothing?

After a family tragedy, Gaby is running and determined to live life to the full. The Isles of Scilly are remote enough for her to heal but she never thought she would meet someone who would make her want to stay, maybe it’s best he doesn’t feel the same way?

Romance, humour and sadness all vie for attention in this lovely story, the setting is beautiful with plenty of intrinsic characters to make it come alive. The story’s main protagonists are complex and likeable, and the plot has more than a few surprises. Living life in the moment is the message of this feel-good read and its the perfect sentiment for Spring, enjoy, I did.

I received a copy of this book from Avon UK via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
