My Thoughts…

Christmas in Cockleberry what could be nicer? It’s fun to return to Cockleberry Bay and its community at this festive time of year. Whilst this festive book is a complete story, the series is so special if you can read them all.

The story is full of vivid imagery, making the characters, events and setting easy to imagine. There are lots of characters and stories, so you need to concentrate, but it’s realistic and vibrant, and the dynamics are relatable to anyone who lives in a small community. For series regulars, there are updates on their favourite characters’ lives, and for new readers, there’s lots of festive fun, humour and intrigue.

This series would work well on television, it makes such good use of sensory imagery, with larger than life, memorable characters. It’s easy to see why this series is so popular, especially in such an uncertain world. It’s the perfect escapist read, definitely a festive book worth reading.

The Gift of Cockleberry Bay Nicola May 5*#Review – #TGOCB @NicolaMay1 #RomCom #CockleberryBay #Heartwarming #BlogTour #BookReview @rararesources #RachelsRandomResources

From the author of the #1 BESTSELLING The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay

All of our favourite characters from Cockleberry Bay are back in this final, heart warming story in the series. Including Hot, Rosa Smith’s adorable dachshund and his new-born puppies.

Now successfully running the Cockleberry Café and wishing to start a family herself, Rosa feels the time is right to let her inherited Corner Shop go. However, her benefactor left one important legal proviso: that the shop cannot be sold, only passed on to somebody who really deserves it.

Rosa is torn. How can she make such a huge decision? And will it be the right one? Once the news gets out and goes public, untrustworthy newcomers appear in the Bay . . . their motives uncertain. With the revelation of more secrets from Rosa’s family heritage, a new journey of unpredictable and life-changing events begins to unfold.

The Gift of Cockleberry Bay concludes this phenomenally successful series in typically brisk and bolshy style and will delight the many thousands of Rosa’s fans

My Thoughts…

Another lovely slice of life in Cockleberry bay with Rosa, hot and friends. The story provides another testing time for Rosa, who never has life easy, but always makes the best of it. Rosa is the soul of the Cockleberry series. Big-hearted, but far from perfect and this adds to her charm.

This story, which concludes the series is full of humour, poignant moments and a thread of mystery. The authentic characters, draw you into their world and make you empathise. The plot is varied, perfectly complementing this character-driven story. If you’re looking for a book to escape with this Easter, this is will leave you, with memories of laughter and tears, and a lovely heartwarming feeling.
It can be read as a standalone, but don’t miss out on the whole series.
