From the New York Times bestselling author of The Bookshop on the Corner and The Cafe by the Sea comes another enchanting, unforgettable novel of a woman who makes a fresh start on the beautiful Scottish Island of Mure--only to discover life has more surprises in store for her. When Flora MacKenzie traded her glum career in London for the remote Scottish island of Mure, she never dreamed that Joel--her difficult, adorable boss--would follow. Yet now, not only has Flora been reunited with her family and opened a charming café by the sea, but she and Joel are taking their first faltering steps into romance. With Joel away on business in New York, Flora is preparing for the next stage in her life. And that would be...' Love? She's feeling it. Security? In Joel's arms, sure. Marriage? Not open to discussion. In the meanwhile, Flora is finding pleasure in a magnificent sight: whales breaking waves off the beaches of Mure. But it also signals something less joyful. According to local superstition, it's an omen--and a warning that Flora's future could be as fleeting as the sea-spray... A bracing season on the shore sets the stage for Jenny Colgan's delightful novel that's as funny, heartwarming, and unpredictable as love itself.      … (more)

Loved it! Jenny Colgan is becoming one of my absolute favorites, and I would like to move to Mure right away! ( )

Love this series set on a desolate Scottish Island and populated with wonderful, warm, and sometimes eccentric characters ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I somehow missed reading the first book in this series, so I spent much of the first part of the book trying to figure out the characters and their backstories. The tale got more interesting after that. The relationships between the characters are intriguing, and the problems they encounter make up the bulk of the story. Nothing comes easy, and it seems like life on that Scottish island can be a challenge, even if the surroundings are beautiful. The story has humor as well as pathos, and readers can’t help but become invested in the lives of the characters as they work through their troubles. But I do agree with other reviewers who said Agot acts more like an annoying two-year-old than a four-year-old. I also recommend the audio version; the narrator gives listeners an excellent rendition performing the Scottish voices. ( )

A different series by Jenny Colgan but very good. She devised this entire community on an island in Scotland and added a narwal to boot lol. Flawed characters who had well developed personalities and imperfect non-fairy tale endings. Excellent. ( )

This could have used fewer big issues. ( )
