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

I don’t think I will ever tire of reading about Rosa and her friends in Cockleberry Bay. Nicola May has written another fun, flirty, festive and fabulous instalment in the Cockleberry Bay series.

Life for Rosa never runs smoothly but she takes it in her stride and in true Rosa fashion she deals with it. Rosa’s life is hectic as usual with a young baby, two businesses, a charity to promote and all whilst her beloved husband is working overseas.

Cockleberry Bay is full of preparations for the autumn and winter festivities that lay ahead and the two pubs are up for a Seaside Rosette award so it’s all exciting but anxious times for all involved. Rosa’s family life has expanded with a new baby and finding her long lost father and step-brother, she feels like all her blessings have been granted. However, as much as it’s wonderful having family around her it does take some getting use to.

Author Nicola May has introduced some great new characters to the bay that have slotted in perfectly bringing together a story that is so very likeable. It’s warm-hearted and lovable but also not without sensitivity and emotion. Chaos never seems far away from the seaside town but the community stick together and help each other with a few chuckles along the way.

I loved Christmas in Cockleberry Bay and hope there’s more to come. Rosa and her ever growing gang warm my heart and I always feel welcomed when I return to Cockleberry Bay.
