|Daisy's Vintage Cornish Camper Van: Ali McNamara|
I've read a few Ali McNamara books before and they certainly fall into the comfortable chick-lit category. Easy to curl up with and read on a park bench or a sun-lounger by the pool.
Welcome to the gorgeous Cornish town of St Felix, where there's magic in the air...
When Ana inherits a broken-down camper van from her best friend, she takes the chance for a quick trip to Cornwall - some sea air and fish and chips on the beach is just the tonic she needs.
But St Felix has bigger plans for Ana. She discovers a series of unsent postcards, dating back to the 1950s, hidden in the upholstery of the van. Ana knows that it's a sign: she'll make sure that the messages reach the person that they were meant for. And as the broken-down van is restored to gleaming health, so Ana begins to find her way back to happiness.
I adored how easy it was to get transported to St Felix through the pages of this book. As a reader we follow Ana and her grief process as she comes to terms with what her dearest friend has left for her. Slowly, it becomes clear that life doesn't always turn out as you'd planned, but perhaps that's OK.
As ever, thank you to Little Brown for providing me with a copy to review. This title is available from 14th June 2018.
