Escape to the Devon coast, with Part One 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?

I have previously read the Wildflower Park series by Bella and I really enjoyed it so I was excited to start this new series.

Daisy has returned to Ottercombe Bay for what she thinks will be a fleeting visit but her Uncle Reg has plans for her. Even from beyond the grave. A little on Daisy’s childhood and what made her leave Ottercombe Bay and why she has never settled anywhere. Daisy clearly has a lot of issues and over the course of the series, I am looking forward to seeing her exploring and overcoming them.

This book is really an introduction to the town and the locals. I really liked the locals and their little quirks. I absolutely love Ottercombe Bay. Devon is a place I love and I hope to go back to in the future. For now, this book will keep me there in spirit.

This is a short book that can easily be read in an afternoon. I really enjoyed the beginning of this series and I cannot wait to get back to it. The book ended on a cliffhanger and I need to see what happens next.
