Read this in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. I sort of guessed the ending about 3/4 of the way through, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the book. Although a sequel to the 1st book it's a standalone story and can be easily read as such.
Great characters, lovely seeing and descriptive writing giving a real feel to the area the book is set in.
Hoping there will be a 3rd in the series and very much looking forward to it.

What a joyous return to Shipley, the the Beachside Bay series, with a predominately who le new set of characters so although its the second book in a series, its also a standalone. It was a complete pleasure to read this book, and was a great way to spend an afternoon.

Carrie hasn't seen Megan or Tom, since Tom's 21st birthday party, where Carrie was hoping to move her friendship with Tom onto a more romantic level, and instead Megan, her best friend, hits on him and they start a relationship.

Ten years later, Carrie is asked to help out on her aunt's flower stall at the market in Shipley, as her aunt, Ruby, has been laid low for the moment. She soons finds out that not only is Tom in the area still, but he is getting married to Megan after all these years.

Oh and if that wasn't enough, the flower stall, Ruby's Blooms is having to pitch to do the wedding flowers as they can't turn down a job this big for financial reasons.

As much as I really did enjoy the weaving story that is Carrie, Megan and Tom, in the run up to the wedding, and there are some wonderful moments, between them, my favourite storylines all involved Ruby.

When you discover the reason that Ruby is not quite herself, and what Carrie tries to do to help her, well it melted my heart, and as the story is revealed, I found myself wishing for a happy outcome for Ruby even more than I was for Carrie.

I loved Carrie's first days on the market stall, the only prep she had done, was to view a youtube video on flower arranging, so clearly doesn't really know anything about making up bouquets or even the names of most of the flowers on sale, but local busy body Doris Day is on hand to give advice.

Having thoroughly enjoyed The Beachside Sweet Shop after being tempted by the front cover, I was really looking forward to The Beachside Flower Stall. I’m pleased to say I loved this book, so despite claiming comedy romances aren’t my thing, this author seems to create the perfect balance, as I loved this book and didn’t want to put it down.

This is one of those feel good stories where you’re pretty sure you know how it’s going to end, but you still thoroughly enjoy the journey and all the extra characters, storylines and little surprises along the way. This book does start off a little sad, with a number of unhappy characters down on their luck, but it’s so wonderful feeling that sadness lift as the story progresses.

I really liked Carrie. I could see myself in her, and not just the crazy frizzy hair (thank goodness for hair straighteners these days). A couple of the things she did made me cringe with embarrassment, probably even more so because I could see myself doing something similar. I also loved that she had conversations with the flower-pups, as I’m often having conversations with cuddly toys and plants, so it did make me giggle. There’s nowt like feeling a little more normal because you relate to a slightly crazy fictional character in a book, ha ha. I loved Hovis the 3-legged terrier too, named Hovis because he looks like a brown loaf. How adorably cute.

I loved “glittery conscious” in place of guilty conscience. It made me laugh heartily. You’ve got to love the way children speak sometimes. I might actually use it myself in future. Oh, and don’t get me started on ‘thigh-brows’. I’m never going to look at myself in the same way again. I’ve never heard of thigh-brows before. So funny.

Having loved Karen Clarke's first book in this series, The Beachside Sweet Shop, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. Don't worry if you haven't read the first one though as they work fine as standalone reads. This time we meet Carrie Dashwood who has returned to Dorset to help her aunt Ruby with her flower stall. Last time she was there she fled the place because of her unrequited love for Tom Hudson. Will she see him again and if so, how will she cope?

What a complete and utter joy it was for me to return to Shipley. A few of the characters from the first book made a brief appearance which was a lovely touch. It made me feel like part of the community myself. I loved Carrie as a character. She's kind and I suspect would be a fantastic friend to have. Shame her former friend Megan didn't agree. What a thoroughly horrid person she was. I also thought aunt Ruby was a fabulous character, oh and not to mention Jane who helped her on the flower stall. I shall say no more than that she likes to over-share!

I found myself chortling away on many occasions at the different situations Carrie got herself into. But this is also a heart-warming read and the writing sets just the right tone. It's not saccharine to the point of being sickly but it's charming and feel-good and I loved every minute of it. As with the previous book, I wanted to be there, although whilst I could see myself running a sweet shop, I think if I ran a flower stall I would have a lot of buckets of dead flowers. I definitely don't have green fingers!

I hear that Karen Clarke is already on her way with the third book in the series which will have a Christmassy feel. Shipley is a wonderful creation and I can't wait to get back there.
