ABOUT THE BOOK
Welcome to Ferry Lane Market
‘Delightful and witty with a heroine you’ll be rooting for . . . joyful escapism’ Milly Johnson
‘Spirited, adventurous and full of heart!’ Heidi Swain
Although thirty-three-year-old Kara Moon loves her hometown of Hartmouth in Cornwall, she has always wondered if she should have followed her dream of going off to study floristry. But she couldn’t bring herself to abandon her emotionally delicate single father, and has worked on Ferry Lane Market’s flower stall ever since leaving school.
When her good-for-nothing boyfriend cheats on her and steals her life savings, she finally dumps him and rents out her spare room as an Airbnb. Gossip flies around the town as Kara welcomes a series of foreign guests to her flat overlooking the estuary.
Then an anonymous postcard arrives, along with a plane ticket to New York. And there begins the first of three trips of a lifetime, during which she will learn important lessons about herself, her life and what she wants from it – and perhaps find love along the way.

Was so excited when I heard that Nicola May was writing a new series as I adored the Cockleberry Bay series, and once more I’m instantly hooked and treasuring every moment spent with these characters in another wonderful location!! When can I move there?!
We are following the story of Kara Moon in this book and she is a total sweetheart! She’s lived in the area all her life and couldn’t help but feel for her when her lowlife boyfriend cheats on her and steals all her life savings. But she isn’t one to sit back and do nothing, so she starts renting out her spare room and is introduced to some very interesting characters (who also happen to be rather gorgeous!) from around the world who bring a little bit of adventure into her life and give her the confidence to put herself first.
And then when a mystery benefactor sends her plane tickets to take trips of a lifetime, a new world is opened up to her and I loved how she grabbed these opportunities with both hands!! Watching her travel around the world and putting the pieces together to try and work out just who was funding these trips and what message they hoped to get through to Kara was a great little mystery to solve!! It has a wonderful feel throughout the story, a strong link to supportive family and friends and those lovely little touches of humour that keep you coming back for more! The community created is full of such endearing characters that I cannot wait to find out more about them all in future books!
This is such a wonderful start to the series and I’m already itching to revisit the Ferry Lane market crew and see what adventures are in store for them next! Fantastic!!
