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 cause 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?
Thank you to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour and to Hodder for my copy of this book via Netgalley. this is the third and final book in the series. I really love these characters and will really miss them.
This book focuses on Glanna, Issac and Oliver. All of these characters are new to the series. I really liked Glanna, I really felt for her trying to justify why she didn’t want children. This is a long going issue for every woman. If you don’t have children by the time you are 30 everyone asks if/when you are having children. I find this extremely frustrating and intrusive.
Nicola does such an excellent job of creating Ferry Lane. It’s so easy to visualise the market, Franks, Moniques, the Gallery the whole little town of Hartmouth. This is such a lovely town with some very interesting and unique characters. I really enjoyed catching up with the characters from the previous books. I was so excited to see the little ones with the Dillon/moon babies and the Bligh/Murray baby. These little ones are super cute and I just love seeing the new generations.
this book was a lovely little escape from the world. I loved being immersed in it and I will really miss this series. I do look forward to seeing what new series Nicola brings for us.
