Summary

Welcome to the glorious little Cornish town of St Felix - where romance and magic sparkle in the summer air.

Kate thinks all her wishes have come true when she opens her own little craft shop in the idyllic harbour town of St Felix.

But she soon finds a mystery lingers in her new shop - a sixty-year-old love story told through beautiful paintings and intricate embroideries.

Jack, the owner of the nearby art shop, volunteers to help Kate unravel the mystery, but in doing so they realise their own lives share some uncanny similarities with Clara and Arty, their 1950s counterparts....

Can Kate and Jack put right a decades-old wrong, and maybe find their own happy ending on the way?

Magical story

I really enjoyed this book, it was a joy from start to finish. I enjoyed the characters, and a nice touch was finding out about characters from previous books. This was a great story and I found myself wanting to find out more and more. This is a feel good story, that makes you smile.

Great story

I was unsure to begin with reading this book it’s beginning is similar to another book I have read by Ali McNamara, however I soon got over this as I was drawn into the lives of all the characters both past and present. The inclusion of characters from previous books is always a pleasure and the continuation of their stories enhanced the story adding colour and flavour. The main characters were well developed and likeably human both flawed and well meaning. The story developed gently and ended with you feeling both happy in present and past stories. It was a really great book

Disappointing

Have always enjoyed Ali McNamara's writing but not this one so much.Wasn't expecting the fantasy element which was off putting. Couldn't take it seriously after that.

Ridiculous

I was looking forward to reading more of this quaint Cornish harbour town. I expected the book to be a bit quirky as the previous were but it was ludicrous. I loved the previous books but this was boring and the characters annoying. I listen to audio in the sunshine and bed times but kept sleeping and missing whole chapters and not noticing. Disappointed.

I Absolutely Loved this Book

This is the first time I've listened to a book by Ali McNamara & it won't be the last.
It was a very unusual plot & really enjoyable.
The different mixture of characters was brilliant.
I would definitely recommend it.

Surprisingly good

At the beginning I wasn’t sure, but I am glad I carried on listening. Although a little predictable in parts, I did enjoy this story and found myself looking forward to the next chapter, similar to tuning into my favourite soap.
