‘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?
Starry skies at Ferry Lane Market is the latest and second book in the Ferry Lane Market series by author Nicola May. I have read, enjoyed and definitely recommend the first book in this new series. If you are looking for a new author I do suggest you read her previous, much popular series, The Cockleberry Bay, too.
This book is set in an estuary town of Hartmouth on the Cornwall Coast and follows the story of jewelry store owner Star Bligh. Star comes from a family of what we would call witches even in today’s modern times. However rest assured the women in Bligh family have a strong sixth sense and well in tune with their intuitions. Star was a young mother in her teen years with her daughter now a young adult.
Being a young mother, Star has been through the trials and everything in between to see her daughter on the verge of young adulthood. everything she has achieved for her small family through hard work and determination has made her family life stable, safe and secure. The only thing missing is Love especially the fun part which comes with it.
In the story Star gets both Love and Fun albeit from different sources and it was a rollercoaster ride to see her go through all the dramas. We also get a healthy dose of the characters in Book 1 and they are all tied up well and good in this story. With some delicious, sensational secrets out in the open it is a story which will keep you happily occupied till the last page.
I enjoyed how Nicola weaves the lives of all the characters, she does it in a way which makes sure they are all tied together in a beautiful way despite them being not related to each other by blood for the most part. There is more than one story line, of the different characters happening, but the central character, Star Bligh, stays the focus and shines throughout, which is what you want from a story. The central characters shining and we also get the added bonus of the rest of the characters getting their due and happy moments.
I reckon this book will be a great addition to your reading lists especially for holidays.
