Down by the bay with Nicola a book giveaway

We're pleased to have Nicola May back at CLC today to talk about her latest novel, Meet Me in Cockleberry Bay and share some other fun information about herself. Rachel's Random Resources has one copy of her novel to give away, as part of her blog tour. 

Award winning author Nicola May lives in Ascot in Berkshire with her rescue cat Stanley. Her hobbies include watching films that involve a lot of swooning, crabbing in South Devon, eating flapjacks and enjoying a flutter on the horses. Inspired by her favorite authors Milly Johnson and Carole Matthews, Nicola writes what she describes as chick lit with a kick.

Synopsis (may contain spoilers for The Corner Shop):
The cast of the runaway bestseller, The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay (reviewed here), are back – including Rosa, Josh, Mary, Jacob, Sheila, new mum Titch and, last but by no means least, Hot, the adorable dachshund.

Newly wed, and with her inherited corner shop successfully up and running, Rosa Smith seems to have all that anyone could wish for. But the course of true love never did run smooth and Rosa’s suspicions that her husband is having an affair have dire consequences.

Reaching rock bottom before she can climb back up to the top, fragile Rosa is forced to face her fears, addiction and jealousy head on.

With a selection of meddling locals still at large, a mystery fire and Titch’s frantic search for the real father of her sick baby, the second book in this enchanting series will take you on a further unpredictable journey of self-discovery.

What is a favorite compliment you have received for your writing?
A new reader said that The Corner Shop in Cockleberry Bay had reignited his passion for reading. That was nice.

Which character do you identify with most in the Cockleberry Bay series?
It has to be Rosa, my heroine. I wasn’t fostered like she is; but I did lose my mum at a very young age; which caused me to grow up very quickly and caused me to experience heartache and grief along life’s windy path. She also has a naughty sense of humour!

If the Cockleberry Bay series were made into a TV series, who would play the lead characters?
I think Bel Powley is exactly how I imagine Rosa to look. Douglas Booth would make a delicious Josh.

What is something that you find to be extremely funny?
Everybody Loves Raymond is my favourite TV comedy. Has me laughing out loud a lot. So brilliantly written.

What is the last thing you purchased?
A pair of gorgeous Anne Klein sandals for my best friend’s birthday.

What movie would people be shocked to find out that you haven't seen before?
I have never watched any of the Star Wars films. If something is not set in real-time then I’m just not interested.

Thanks to Nicola for visiting with us and to Rachel's Random Resources for sharing Nicola's book with our readers.
