I've been eagerly awaiting The Once in a Blue Moon Guesthouse series wrapped up in one whole package and let me tell you it is one very appealing package! I dived straight in and was welcomed by a gang of lovable characters that made you swoon at the possibility of finding a guesthouse just like Robin's this summer holidays!
Robin Brennan has come home to Campion Bay. Now her parents have retired, she’s set to become the new landlady of The Campion Bay Guesthouse.
Bookings have been as thin as the hand towels, and it doesn’t take long for Robin to realise that the place needs a serious makeover. Perhaps throwing herself into the task will help to heal her sadness at the tragic end to her dreams in London.
As she gives the guesthouse a new lease of life, Robin encounters old friends and new, including old flame Tim, who’d clearly like to reboot their romance. But what about Will, the new arrival at No. 4, who’s rocked up with the cutest dog ever?
Caught up in a flurry of full-English breakfasts and cream teas, Robin’s never sure what, or who, the next check-in will bring…
As soon as I run my eyes down the first page of the opening chapter I knew I would love Robin's enthusiasm, drive and determination. Robin's character qualities shine throughout the pages of this book and make her so easily relatable. Robin just knows how to bring her parents once worn out guesthouse up to a dreamy, luxurious place that everybody wants to stay in on their visit to Campion Bay.
I loved getting to know all the other characters gracing the pages of this book, the residence as well as the array of guests that become more of friends as the story progressed. I got very fond of the handsome and very intense Will, who has his work cut out cleaning out his late Aunt Tabitha's house. But it the hard work comes with certain perks and rather intriguing mystery so Will seem to settle nicely into the charming coast lifestyle and who wouldn't!
Aside from Robin and Will I couldn't get past mentioning the wonderfully caring and tight-knit community of Campion Bay and the delightful owners of the little businesses on Goldcrest Road!
I could feel the warmth and the friendliness radiating through their acts of kindness and their endless support in making The Goldcrest Road the best road in the Campion Bay. And I mustn't Eclipse, Robin's cat and Darcy, Wills cute little dog the twosome added a bit of sparkle to already fabulous and well-paced storyline.
Once again, Cressida McLaughlin crafted a book that epitomises the importance of love, friendship and family.
Plus you can also find a selection of some very delicious recipes at the back of the book! Go on make yourself a nice cup of tea and perhaps lavender cookies in the company of this book! It will make your reading heart happy.
