Although I was excited when I received my copy of Blue Slipper Bay, Wendy Harris's second novel, I was also a little nervous - would it live up to her first novel, The Sorrow of Sisters, which I had so enjoyed? I needn't have worried. Blue Slipper Bay is another page turner with a plot that will keep readers guessing and characters that are beautifully written. Harris's prose is lyrical and descriptive with images that burst off the page to dazzle and delight the reader. The Isle of White once again plays a central role and Harris's love of the 'Undercliff' is obvious - in fact she is to the Isle of Wight what Daphne du Maurier was to Cornwall. I'm looking forward to the third novel in the Undercliff series and I won't be nervous about reading it!

The second novel in Wendy K. Harris's series set at Blue Slipper Bay was as pleasantly warm as her first, The Sorrow of Sisters, which I reviewed here a few months ago. Having become acquainted with her style in the first book, I was very much looking forward to the publication of her second. And she most definitely doesn't disappoint.

Some of the characters I enjoyed so much from the first book are here again in this tale, and to that framework Harris weaves in the story of her main character in the second installment, Sophie, a woman still in mourning after the loss of her mother and her husband's adulterous betrayal. Sophie comes to the island looking for a place she can detach from her busy professional career in order to think. Her friend Jill lives on the Isle of Wight, and offers to take her in as long as it's necessary for her to recover. Jill, a psychologist in business with her husband in their budding clinic, turns out to have some very serious problems of her own, and before the end of the book the two women's friendship will be severely tested in ways they never imagined.

Nick, a man also recovering from a wrenching, unimaginable grief also craves the solace of solitude. His retreat from the world is so extreme he leads a monk-like existence. Nick is also hoping to find himself, and heal, on the island. As Nick and Sophie come to know each other a deep friendship develops, but one that's overruled by the caution of two people who've been hurt very badly. In the course of protecting themselves they run the risk of missing the opportunity of finding comfort in each other.

Throughout it all, the subplots tell the story of the characters from the first book, as well as some characters that have only sprung up in the second.

Second novels, reputedly, are notoriously difficult to write. Especially if your first novel has been so well received (and in Wendy's case, deservedly.) But readers needn't worry for Wendy's second novel, Blue Slipper Bay, is as lyrical and enchanting as her first (The Sorrow of Sisters.) Again, it is set on the Isle of Wight but whilst several of the characters from her first novel reappear, the main characters are new. However, as in The Sorrow of Sisters, the island weaves its magic around them and where they thought they might stay for just a short time ... well, you will just have to read it to find out what happens to them. Again, be warned: once you pick this up, you won't want to put it down! I'm really looking forward now to the third in Wendy's Undercliffe series, Rocken Edge.

Wendy K Harris is one of my favourite Transita authors and I was not disappointed with this follow up to The Sorrow of Sisters, her first novel. Blue Slipper Bay is just as emotional as her first and once again set in the Isle of Wight, with familiar places and characters. It is not necessary to have read the previous novel to enjoy this one, although I would recommend doing so, because the main protagonists are new characters.
Sophie, Jill and Nick who all have traumas in their pasts that they need to reconcile if they are ever going to be happy. Their stories link seamlessly into the lives of the characters previously met in The Sorrow of Sisters. A broken marriage and bereavement bring Sophie to the island to visit her best friend Jill and hopefully restore some balance in her life. Jill meanwhile has some soul searching of her own to do with regards to the effect of her childhood on her behaviour within her marriage, which consequently has put a strain on her relationship with her husband Ash. Nick has sought the island as a retreat from deep grief that is taking him years to recover from.

The theme of love and forgiveness intertwines these characters together as friendships and relationships develop and teeter on the brink of failure. Everything works out as one would hope by the end though because this is after all, though written in a good literary style, still a romantic novel.

I look forward to reading her third novel Roken Edge which will apparently once again be set in the Isle of Wight.

I agree with one of the other reviewers in that it is sometimes tricky to read the second book having enjoyed the first book so much. But, I needn't have worried. This one is different to the first, in that it is set mainly in the here and now and has a bit more romance in it, but it is nonetheless a thoroughly engrossing read. (It has taken all my will-power to delay starting Rocken Edge (Book 3) until Friday evening so I can read it over the weekend. Starting it on a weekday evening would not be good for my career!)
