Hello fellow booklovers, hope you doing well as you can. Today’s blog is a bookreview of one of my favourite go to authors for a good read, Nicola May’s latest. The title as mentioned above is Book 3 in the Ferry Lane Market series and as enjoyable as the first 2 books in the series. With that I wish you Happy Reading and Discovering new authors and stories.

Author – Nicola May

Genre – Women’s Fiction / Romance

Publication date – 14th April 2022


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

39-year-old Glanna Pascoe – also known as ‘the Rainbow Painter’ – runs the Hartmouth Gallery in Ferry Lane Market in Cornwall. She is just getting her head and broken heart around being single, childless, and sober when Cupid flies in, shooting arrows all over the place.

Meeting the mysterious and fascinating Isaac Benson, famous local artist, and recluse, allows Glanna’s disillusioned heart and attitude to soften, and she begins to learn more about herself than she ever thought possible. Confused by her growing feelings for Isaac, Glanna throws herself into organising a life-drawing class at her gallery, using both male and female nudes – and setting local tongues wagging.

A theft from her gallery and the return of ex-love Oliver Trueman causes Glanna to wonder if a pot of gold will be appearing at the end of her rainbow. And will it bring her the happiness she has sought for so long?

My thoughts

Book 3 in the Ferry lane Market is titled – Rainbows End at Ferry Lane Market, you can also check out my review for Book 2 below –


In Book 3, Rainbows End we follow the life of Glanna Pascoe, an artist and local gallery owner, who we have met in the previous 2 books, however the story can be read standalone as well. Once you’ve read this story I am sure you will be intrigued and excited to read about and meet the other characters mentioned in it and some who have their own stories in the series.

Glanna is an artist who loves painting rainbows amongst other things in her portfolio. As an artist who’s travelled the world and lived wild, carefree days in London as a youth, Glanna, now closer to 40, has moved closer home to see what life brings her next. For a woman who has been there and done it when it comes to most life experiences, moving to small waterside town is a challenge, she looks forward to as she settles in life. She is a strong, resilient yet vulnerable and sometimes emotional woman who knows her mind and is slowly coming in to her own in all parts of her life. Determined not to repeat some of the mistakes of her past Glanna is content and looks forward to being happy in the future.

What I liked about the book

  1. The lead character is perfectly flawed and someone I enjoyed knowing. She has an experience rich life and yet at times she seemed so fresh and innocent. She is someone I wish I knew or someone I want to be when I grow up. A character I loved.
  2. The familiarity of the cast and setting, it is always fun and exciting to meet characters you know from previous stories and catch up with them. What’s not to like about that.
  3. The representation of the modern woman, who knows her mind, is unapologetic about what she wants and yet keeps the spirit of love, hope alive in her life, that’s always heartwarming to read as it captures your attention and is so very relatable.

A Nicola May series never fails to pick me up and I always enjoy her stories for their wholesome feels and a cracking time with its humor and quirky characters you can’t help but like and sometimes love as well.
