Starry Skies in Ferry Lane Market
‘Full of heart, hope, friendship, family and laughter, and a plot with a mystery gagging to be solved’ Kim Nash on Welcome to Ferry Lane Market
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?
Readers love Nicola May, too!

The Ferry Lane series delivers yet again!! I don’t know how Nicola May does it, but she manages to capture the essence of a caring community and all those human experiences that real life throws the way of people! It’s a series that feels so comforting to read as you feel you’re amongst friends and you’re part of their lives as the drama plays out!
In this story, we are mainly following the life of Star! She was a teenage mum and is now in her 30’s and has made a real success of her jewellery business at the market. But she feels like something is missing and is dealing with complicated relationships in her family! She was devastated when the handsome Jack in her life upped and left quickly a few months ago with no communication, but she’s doing what she can to move on with her life – the lovable rogue Conor might be able to help her with that when he turns up in town looking for his own new start!
What I loved about this was the relatable issues and problems the characters were facing – there are friends around to support, family around to frustrate and a few secrets revealed from the past that are about to shock a few of the locals and all they thought they knew!!
It all bounces along at such a lively pace too that there’s never a lull in action and goings on – just like real life! There’s always some drama going on or laughs to be had and it is just one of those books that keeps you turning the pages quicker and quicker to find out what will happen to your favourite characters next!
Already counting down the days to the 3rd book in this series and secretly hoping it never ends!! This series has it all and I love it!!
