About the book:
Welcome to Ferry Lane Market
‘Delightful and witty with a heroine you’ll be rooting for . . . joyful escapism’ Milly Johnson
‘Spirited, adventurous and full of heart!’ Heidi Swain
Although thirty-three-year-old Kara Moon loves her hometown of Hartmouth in Cornwall, she has always wondered if she should have followed her dream of going off to study floristry. But she couldn’t bring herself to abandon her emotionally delicate single father, and has worked on Ferry Lane Market’s flower stall ever since leaving school.
When her good-for-nothing boyfriend cheats on her and steals her life savings, she finally dumps him and rents out her spare room as an Airbnb. Gossip flies around the town as Kara welcomes a series of foreign guests to her flat overlooking the estuary.
Then an anonymous postcard arrives, along with a plane ticket to New York. And there begins the first of three trips of a lifetime, during which she will learn important lessons about herself, her life and what she wants from it – and perhaps find love along the way.

Welcome To Ferry Lane Market by Nicola May is, as always with this author, a wonderful feel good story that’s pure escapism at its very best. The perfect read for summer, it is a fabulous start to a brand new series. With a varied cast of characters who I’m sure we’ll learn even more about as the series continues, this first story focuses on Kara Moon, who finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Cheated on by her good for nothing boyfriend, she decides to rent out her spare room as an Airbnb, with often hilarious results. And then an anonymous letter arrives, along with a plane ticket to New York, sending Kara’s life spinning in a whole new direction…
I love Nicola May’s writing. There’s a warmth and humour to it that draws you into these characters lives from the moment you begin reading, making you care about what happens to them from the outset. But as always with this author’s work, Welcome To Ferry Lane Market is far from just a light and airy read, it’s also a book that touches on more serious issues, with its wonderful blend of both happy and sad moments transforming it into a moving and uplifting read that once started I did not want to put down.
Nicola May has written a charming book that will fill the gap left behind when her wonderful Cockleberry Bay series came to an end. It’s a pure delight from beginning to end and I loved every emotion filled word of it. If Welcome To Ferry Lane Market is anything to go by, we’re in for a real treat as this series continues and I can’t wait to see where this talented author is going to take this larger than life cast of characters next.
Welcome To Ferry Lane Market by Nicola May is available to purchase now.
