Publisher Description

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?

Ideal escapist reading

Rainbows End is the third in the series about life in Ferry Lane Market set in the Cornish seaside town of Hartmouth but can be read as a stand alone. While books one and two are fairly lighthearted, this is more serious containing a heroine who has experienced a troubled life.

Now nearly 40 years old, Glanna Pascoe has followed a hedonistic lifestyle since her early 20s. Realising her way of life hasn't brought her happiness, she agrees to go into rehab to help cure her alcoholism and drug addiction.

After her time in rehab, Glanna leaves London and returns to her home town of Hartmouth. With financial support from her wealthy mother, she runs Hartmouth Art Gallery, specialising in exhibiting the work of local artists. Known as The Rainbow Painter, Glanna is an accomplished artist and, motivated by the need to boost the gallery's irregular income, decides to hold life drawing classes, much to the alarm of locals.

Although characters from previous books make a welcome reappearance throughout, this is about Glanna seeking to regain control of her life and achieving happiness.

A real treat that I devoured in two days.

Another great visit to Ferry Lane Market

Another outstanding book from one of my most favourite authors, Nicola May, but sadly, apparently the last in the Ferry Lane Market series. Rainbows End in Ferry Lane Market was brilliant from beginning to end. It was happy, sad, funny and thought-provoking and definitely something I would recommend to anyone who wants to switch off for a few hours and join someone else’s life.

Glanna’s life has had ups and lots of downs until she moved to Hartmouth, but now she’s settling into her new life, making new friends and beginning to love life again. With her gorgeous whippet, Banksy, Glanna is immersing herself into Ferry Lane Market and gradually returning to becoming a local girl once again. She befriends local artist Isaac Benson and they help guide each other through things that have happened to them in the past, both discovering who they are now and how to move forward with their lives.

Nicola brings in characters that have been at the forefront of her other Ferry Lane Market books and we see how their lives are moving forwards too. However, Rainbows End in Ferry Lane Market is equally enjoyable as a stand-alone novel as well as alongside the previous two visits to Hartmouth.

I love Nicola’s writing and as an amazingly talented author, I hope she continues to introduce us to new series and new characters as time goes on. Please never stop writing, Nicola. I smile every time I know there’s a new book coming out!

Thank you to NetGalley and Hodder & Stoughton for the opportunity to read and review an ARC of Rainbows End in Ferry Lane Market by Nicola May.
