Happy Thursday everybody! Hope you and your family are doing well. This book was definitely the sweet satisfying seaside escape that I needed!🏖🐾

The Gift of Cockleberry Bay

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

Sweet and satisfying. Once again Nicola May seamlessly weaves together romance, humor, and Mystery. This is the third and sadly the last installment in this delightful series. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Cockleberry Bay with these engaging and quirky characters. The highlight of the series for me really has been watching Rosa grow as a character. The road hasnt always been easy and there were quite a few speed bumps along the way, but I was so thrilled with her in this book (after being a little disappointed with her in the previous book). Now that Rosa and Josh are happily married and thinking of starting a family, Rosa is beginning to contemplate who she should give her beloved store to. I love the clever way Rosa decided to figure this out. There was also a mysterious stranger and a mystery involving a crime that Rosa has been accused of. Just as in the previous books in the series this story was full of charm, wit, and humor. My review would not be complete if I did not mention the star of the book, once again Hot🐾 and this time he is accompanied by his adorable puppies. Sad to say goodbye to Cockleberry Bay but excited to see what is next from Nicola May.
