Synopsis

Book Three in bestselling sensation Nicola May’s gorgeous new series – catch up with Book One, WELCOME TO FERRY LANE MARKET, and Book Two, STARRY SKIES IN FERRY LANE MARKET, now!

39-year-old Glanna Pascoe – also known as ‘the Rainbow Painter’ – runs the Hartmouth Gallery in Ferry Lane Market in Cornwall. She is just getting her head and broken heart around being single, childless, and sober when Cupid flies in, shooting arrows all over the place.

Meeting the mysterious and fascinating Isaac Benson, famous local artist, and recluse, allows Glanna’s disillusioned heart and attitude to soften, and she begins to learn more about herself than she ever thought possible. Confused by her growing feelings for Isaac, Glanna throws herself into organising a life-drawing class at her gallery, using both male and female nudes – and setting local tongues wagging.

A theft from her gallery and the return of ex-love Oliver Trueman cause Glanna to wonder if a pot of gold will be appearing at the end of her rainbow. And will it bring her the happiness, she has sought for so long?

Praise for Nicola May!

Review

As I mentioned, I think that this is my favourite instalment, to date, of this wonderful series.  There was something about Glanna’s difficult relationship with her mother that really resonated with me.  Maybe difficult is a strong term, but it certainly wasn’t the stuff that Mary Poppins would dream about.

The latest addition to Ferry Lane Market is the Hartmouth Gallery, Glanna’s art gallery which features a variety of artist’s work as well as some of her own rainbow inspired pieces. She’s eager to build business and after being let down by a ceramic artist, she is desperate to find an alternative.  A random meeting with local celebrity artist Isaac Benson leads to an interesting sequence of events.

There was a lot packed into this wonderful story, from the hilarity of the life drawing classes to Isaac’s devastating need for privacy, there’s a whole host of emotions to experience.  Of course, there are also a number of chances to catch up with characters from the previous books.  There’s enough explanation to make sure that you can keep up to speed, if you’ve not read them.

There is romance to be found but, for the avoidance of spoilers, I won’t say anything more on that subject! The beauty of this story is definitely in the details of Glanna’s friendships and evolving relationships with her parents.  I absolutely felt like a fly on the wall, watching and listening to her story develop.  She’s a strong character yet, like many of us, she has plenty of self-doubt to play devil’s advocate with her thought processes.

I highly recommend this book and the others in the series, they are all rather special.
