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?

Thank you to Avon for my copy of this book via Netgalley. This is the final part in the Ottercombe Bay series.

In this final part, all the mysteries that have been weaved throughout this series are uncovered. There’s quite a lot packed into only 98 pages. There is a very tense moment that had me on the edge of my seat.

There’s lots of romance in this final section. Bella’s writing is heartwarming and full of humorous moments. This is a nice easy read and it was lovely to see Daisy get her happy ending and there were a few other characters that I was rooting for too.

This was a great series and I can’t wait to read more of Bella’s series in the future!
