Coming Home to Ottercombe Bay
by Bella Osborne
Daisy Wickens has returned to Ottercombe Bay, the picturesque Devon town where her mother died when she was a girl. She plans to leave as soon as her great uncle’s funeral is over, but Great Uncle Reg had other ideas. He’s left Daisy a significant inheritance – an old building in a state of disrepair, which could offer exciting possibilities, but to get it she must stay in Ottercombe Bay for twelve whole months.
With the help of a cast of quirky locals, a few gin cocktails and a black pug with plenty of attitude, Daisy might just turn this into something special. But can she ever hope to be happy among the ghosts of her past?
Great beach read full of charm, quirky characters, and a beautiful, quaint setting!!!
Daisy Wickens has returned to the picturesque town of Ottercombe Bay for her great-uncle, Reg’s, funeral. It holds some wonderful memories as well as some very sad ones. Not one to stay in one place for long, Daisy has plans to attend the funeral and leave again. However, her Uncle Reg had other ideas for her. Before she can obtain her inheritance of an old railway station, she has to stay put for an entire year! This will be one of the most difficult times, but she will also find out so much about herself and possibly even find her Mr. Right!
The characters were charming and quirky. Daisy is pretty complicated. She has traveled all over Europe, but not for all of the right reasons. She is running from the ghosts of her past. This is when the additional secondary characters are so important within the book. Each person, especially Max, helps her face those ghosts and become the woman she was meant to be. The romance between Max and Daisy is a slow build up, but this book is more about her journey, and he happens to be a great discovery along the way. As I wrote, the secondary characters, like her Aunt Coral, Tamsyn, Jason, and even her deceased Uncle Reg had an important part of the book. Even Aunt Coral’s beloved dog, Bugs, was a character I adored.
