Blog Tour #bookreview Meet me in Cockleberry Bay by Nicola May @rararesources @nicolamay1

Hello dear readers here’s the second #bookreview for today. This is a continuation of The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay, however I do feel you can easily read it as a standalone, as there’s enough context in the storyline. Happy Reading and discovering.


Title – Meet me in Cockleberry Bay

Author Nicola May

Rating 4.5 /5


The cast of the runaway bestseller, The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay, are back – including Rosa, Josh, Mary, Jacob, Sheila, new mum Titch and, last but by no means least, Hot, the adorable dachshund.Newly wed, and with her inherited corner shop successfully up and running, Rosa Smith seems to have all that anyone could wish for. But the course of true love never did run smooth and Rosa’s suspicions that her husband is having an affair have dire consequences.Reaching rock bottom before she can climb back up to the top, fragile Rosa is forced to face her fears, addiction and jealousy head on.With a selection of meddling locals still at large, a mystery fire and Titch’s frantic search for the real father of her sick baby, the second book in this enchanting series will take you on a further unpredictable journey of self-discovery.

My thoughts

The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay was how Rosa starts a new, more settled chapter in her life. Meet me in Cockleberry Bay is what happens after she gets married to Josh.Usually we see the whole rigamarole, that Rosa goes through in this story, before one settles down for their happily ever after. But, this was refreshing and felt more relatable and closer to real life. It was a fun, tense, absolutely enjoyable ride of a story.The humor of the characters, their reliable friendships and the small community warmth was strong as ever. I loved how the title and a very sweet, romantic part of the story is connected.I’d read, re read this fun, relatable story on any day with a second thought.
