My Review

We are back in Cockleberry Bay for the 4th book in the series.  Whilst it is a series, it can be read as a standalone book, although I would recommend reading the books in series order for better understanding of the back stories.  Rosa is coping with the demands of motherhood while her friend, Titch is coping with the demands of being pregnant.  Rosa’s husband Josh, is working away for several months, and whilst she understands the need for him to be away, you have got to feel sorry for her having to deal with Little Ned all on her own!  I’ve always liked Rosa’s character and it’s lovely to see both of her parents back on the scene, particularly as she needs all the help she can get!

All of the regulars from the previous books are back to join in the fun, and there are some new characters thrown into the mix as well!  The characters are so well written that it just feels like coming back home to a group of good friends (although some of them take a bit more working on!)  The book grabs you right at the beginning and even though I kept thinking I’ll put it down at the next chapter, I never did and I sped through the book loving every page!!  There is so much going on with hotel inspectors, babies, dodgy girlfriends and the Christmas festivities in the village, that you barely have time to catch your breath before you’re off again!!!

This book was an absolute delight and one which I thoroughly enjoyed!!  My favourite, as in every book of the series, is Hot the Dog!!  I can’t help but chuckle every time I hear his name, and it’s great to see how they are all settling down in their family group!  This author has a definite flair of writing books which are so comforting that they wrap you up like a big fluffy blanket!!  This is a book of heart-warming family moments, fun, laughter and plenty of Christmas cheer!!  The storyline will capture you from start to finish, and I really hope there will be another book in the series so I can return to the loveliness of Cockleberry Bay!  Would definitely recommend!
