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?
Thank you to Rachel for letting me take part in this tour and to Hodder and Stoughton for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I was excited to return to Ferry Lane Market for the festive season. While this is the second book in the series you can read both books as standalone but you will get the most enjoyment if you read both.
Star is the main character in this book. She was featured in the first book but she was a secondary character in that one. Star has been through so much in her life. This has made her such a strong person but also someone who holds everything in and only relies on herself. Star had the weight of the world on her shoulders. It was nice to see her relax and be a bit carefree in this book. Star is the sort of person you always want as a friend as she puts others first and will be there for you when you need her the most.
I really enjoyed returning to Hartsmouth and seeing how all the characters are getting on. I love this little town and all its inhabitants. I loved dropping in on Kerry and seeing how she’s been doing since the last book. I also liked the story with Darren. I thought this was quite a touching story.
If you are looking for a romance with a sprinkling of festiveness then this is the one for you.
