Book Description

Book Two in bestselling sensation Nicola May’s gorgeous new series – catch up with Book One, WELCOME TO FERRY LANE MARKET, now!

‘Full of heart, hope, friendship, family and laughter, and a plot with a mystery gagging to be solved’ Kim Nash on Welcome to Ferry Lane Market

When Star Bligh got pregnant at the age of sixteen, she thought her life was over. Now thirty-three, mother to Skye and owner of the successful jewellery stall in Ferry Lane Market in Hartmouth, Cornwall, she wouldn’t change a thing about it.

Well, maybe one. A few months ago she fell hard for American visitor Jack, but then he left without even saying goodbye and ever since she has struggled to get him out of her head. Until the handsome, roguish Conor turns up and sweeps her off her feet. But then one day, Star is shocked to bump into Jack. He’s back in Hartmouth to tell her why he left – but is she ready to listen?

As things get more complicated with her love life, another revelation threatens to turn the lovely world she has built for her and Skye upside down. But could this be the one thing that will make it complete?

Review 

Star came from a broken home, had a drug-addicted parent, and was a teenage mother for her daughter Skye.

She was a business owner, a mindful daughter, and a worried parent, but the past still played a massive role in who she was and how she saw the world.

I found the story very touching, and the emotional conflicts felt very real. Star was not the typical rom-com heroine; she was very flawed and layered, strong, and at the same time vulnerable.

There was a romantic triangle, but I did not see it as the center of the story. I don’t want to give spoilers, so I will not enter in details, but I honestly think she would be better off remaining single (lol).

I enjoyed the scenery, the sense of friendship and community, and how Star overcame insurmountable obstacles and emotional pain.

Warnings: cheating, drugs, unprotected sex.

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
