Escape to the Devon coast, with Part Four of a brand-new four-part serial from the author of Willow Cottage.
Daisy Wickens has returned to Ottercombe Bay, the picturesque Devon town where her mother died when she was a girl. She plans to leave as soon as her great uncle’s funeral is over, but Great Uncle Reg had other ideas. He’s left Daisy a significant inheritance – an old building in a state of disrepair, which could offer exciting possibilities, but to get it she must stay in Ottercombe Bay for twelve whole months.
With the help of a cast of quirky locals, a few gin cocktails and a black pug with plenty of attitude, Daisy might just turn this into something special. But can she ever hope to be happy among the ghosts of her past?
My Review: 4/5
I’m new to this series. Ottercombe Bay – Shaken and Stirred is the fourth and final book in the series. My only regret with reading this book, is I wish I would have started from the beginning! Although the author does a great job of filling in the holes of what happened in the previous stories, I wish I experienced the story from the very beginning.
Pushing that aside, part four is a great book and a perfect conclusion. All ends are nicely tied together leaving the reader with zero questions. There is a little bit of everything, mystery, chick lit, and romance in this series.
There is a great deal of chemistry and strong presence between all of the characters, from Daisy and her Aunt Coral, to Daisy and Max. Even Coral’s dog has presence! The moments with Bug made me laugh out loud.
This was a very quick read, which will make it easy if you want a good, cozy book to read on your weekend getaway. Which is just what I’m going to do on my road trip later this month…read the past three books! It will make you laugh and cry, and leave you with a satisfied smile on your face.
