The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay - Nicola May 5* + GIVEAWAY *****

Much more than the average “Man meets woman + inheritance mystery” type read in
a very good way. Rosa lives and works in London and rents a room from Josh, her friend,
Her work is more off than on as she has had more jobs than a little. When she gets
notification that she has been left a shop in a Devon town fate has intervened as yet
again she has lost her job. She has no know relatives having spent her childhood in
care and so is mystified as to whom her benefactor is. Arriving in the town, she finds
everyone knows everyone else and news travels fast despite her trying to keep herself
to herself. She doesn't know who left her the shop and the proviso is that she can't
sell it . She has to ”leave it to someone who deserves it”. She soon takes to the sea
air and the change of pace that a seaside town gives from the busy streets of London.
This is a wonderfully uplifting read about life, relationships, friendships and all
that life can throw at you- and the love of a dog. A perfect holiday read or one just
to dream of the seaside and perhaps warmer weather. I loved reading this.
A little escapism, a little humour, a good plot line and that feelgood factor
along the way.

Praise for Nicola May’s books ‘This book will twang your funny bone & your heartstrings’ – Milly Johnson ‘A fun and flighty read’ the Sun ‘A funny and fast-paced romp – thoroughly enjoyable!’ WOMAN Magazine * Rosa Larkin is down on her luck in London, so when she inherits a near-derelict corner
shop in a quaint Devon village, her first thought is to sell it for cash and sort out her life.
But nothing is straightforward about this legacy. While the identity of her benefactor
remains a mystery, he - or she - has left one important legal proviso: that the shop cannot be sold, only passed on to somebody who really deserves it. Rosa makes up her mind to give it a go: to put everything she has into getting the shop
up and running again in the small seaside community of Cockleberry Bay. But can she do
it all on her own? And if not, who will help her succeed - and who among the following
will work secretly to see her fail? There is a handsome rugby player, a sexy plumber, a charlatan reporter and a selection
of meddling locals. Add in a hit and run incident and the disappearance of a valuable
engraved necklace – and what you get is a journey of self-discovery and unpredictable events. With surprising and heartfelt results, Rosa, accompanied at all times by her little sausage
dog Hot, will slowly unravel the shadowy secrets of the inheritance, and also bring her
own, long-hidden heritage into the light. Purchase from – Amazon US - Amazon UK - Amazon CA - Amazon AU - About Nicola May ​ Award winning author Nicola May lives in Ascot in Berkshire with her rescue cat Stanley.
