‘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?

my thoughts

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so couldn’t wait to read this, and I wasn’t disappointed.  Although we do get to catch up with Kara from the first book and lots of our favourite characters, this one focusses on Star and her complicated family relationships.  And not only that, but also the fact that she has TWO men who she could potentially end up with…..but who will she choose?

Yet again the cast of characters are fantastic. Hartmouth is such a fantastic place – every time I read it I just want to go to the market and meet the lovely warm community.  The characters are so well developed, and I can really see this series continuing on for some time, as there are so many interesting people to learn about.

The plot was fantastic yet again, and I loved waiting for things to unravel…… The writing style is an absolute joy to read and I couldn’t wait to pick this back up to start reading.

So if you’re looking for a wonderful, heartwarming read with a wonderful community and brilliant characters, a fantastic plot and awesome writing, then check this out.  Highly recommended by me.
