Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Christmas in Cockleberry Bay by Nicola May #CICB Fun, festive, contemporary community drama!

Christmas in Cockleberry Bay

Meet old and new characters in the Bay for Christmas fun and frolics.

With both the Corner Shop and Cockleberry Café in safe hands, Rosa turns her attention to Ned’s Gift, the charity set up in memory of the great-grandfather whose legacy turned her life around.

Over at the Ship Hotel, Lucas has his work cut out with his devious new girlfriend and the mystery poisoning of an anonymous hotel inspector. Will the hotel still get its 3-star Seaside Rosette?

Will Mary find true love at last? Can Titch cope with the demands of the shop and being heavily pregnant. And can Rosa, with a baby of her own, pull off the Cockleberry Bay Charity Christmas Concert in time?

Christmas in Cockleberry Bay is a festive delight for fans of Rosa and her cheeky mini dachshund Hot, delivering a feast of unpredictable events and surprises.

My Review:

It is so good to return to the brilliant Cockleberry Bay community to catch up on what all the characters have been up to in this fourth book in the series. There’s a great mix of family drama, friendship, romance, mystery and dastardly deeds in this story.

Rosa is finding life with her young baby very different. Her husband, Josh, is away working in America and she’s juggling so many different things. Add in the newcomer to the village, a surprise new event to organise, Luke’s latest girlfriend being less than friendly, the unwelcome return of a man and his dog as well as the much anticipated visit of the mystery hotel inspector due to rate two establishments . . . it is all go in Cockleberry Bay!

It is such fun to read about everyone in this delightful community. The interpersonal relationships, the hidden dramas together with the secrets being kept all add up to create an enthralling read and great addition to this series. Even the dogs involved each have their own traits – especially Rosa’s dog, Hot! This is a lovely story full of surprises, lots of love and yet more babies and even a second-chance romance along the way!

My thanks to the author for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
