Daisy Wickens has returned to Ottercombe Bay, the picturesque Devon town where her mother died when she was a girl. She plans to leave as soon as her great uncle’s funeral is over, but Great Uncle Reg had other ideas. He’s left Daisy a significant inheritance – an old building in a state of disrepair, which could offer exciting possibilities, but to get it she must stay in Ottercombe Bay for twelve whole months.
With the help of a cast of quirky locals, a few gin cocktails and a black pug with plenty of attitude, Daisy might just turn this into something special. But can she ever hope to be happy among the ghosts of her past?
I read the first part of this serial for completeness, having already read the rest of the book. Part one is an entertaining read and sets the scene well for what follows. It highlights the mystery and tragedy surrounding Daisy’s mum’s death and lays the foundation for the attraction between Max and Daisy. Daisy is drifting, and the death and legacy of her great-uncle challenge her to evaluate her current life choices and fulfil her potential by coming to terms with her demons.
A lovely introduction to a humorous, poignant and romantic series.
