BRMAYCOCK’S BOOK BLOG
About the Author
Cressy was born in South East London surrounded by books and with a cat named after Lawrence of Arabia. She studied English at the University of East Anglia and now lives in Norwich with her husband David.
Cressy’s favourite things include terrifying ghost stories, lava lamps and romantic heroes, though not necessarily at the same time. She doesn’t (yet) have a dog of her own, but feeds her love vicariously through friends’ pets, and was once chased around a field by a soaking wet, very mischievous Border Collie called Wags.
When she isn’t writing, Cressy spends her spare time reading, returning to London or exploring the beautiful Norfolk coastline.

Robin Brennan has come home to Campion Bay. Now her parents have retired, she’s set to become the new landlady of The Campion Bay Guesthouse.
Bookings have been as thin as the hand towels, and it doesn’t take long for Robin to realise that the place needs a serious makeover. Perhaps throwing herself into the task will help to heal her sadness at the tragic end to her dreams in London.
As she gives the guesthouse a new lease of life, Robin encounters old friends and new, including old flame Tim, who’d clearly like to reboot their romance. But what about Will, the new arrival at No. 4, who’s rocked up with the cutest dog ever?
Caught up in a flurry of full-English breakfasts and cream teas, Robin’s never sure what, or who, the next check-in will bring…
As soon as I run my eyes down the first page of the opening chapter I knew I would love Robin's enthusiasm, drive and determination. Robin's character qualities shine throughout the pages of this book and make her so easily relatable. Robin just knows how to bring her parents once worn out guesthouse up to a dreamy, luxurious place that everybody wants to stay in on their visit to Campion Bay.
I loved getting to know all the other characters gracing the pages of this book, the residence as well as the array of guests that become more of friends as the story progressed. I got very fond of the handsome and very intense Will, who has his work cut out cleaning out his late Aunt Tabitha's house. But it the hard work comes with certain perks and rather intriguing mystery so Will seem to settle nicely into the charming coast lifestyle and who wouldn't!
Aside from Robin and Will I couldn't get past mentioning the wonderfully caring and tight-knit community of Campion Bay and the delightful owners of the little businesses on Goldcrest Road!
I could feel the warmth and the friendliness radiating through their acts of kindness and their endless support in making The Goldcrest Road the best road in the Campion Bay. And I mustn't Eclipse, Robin's cat and Darcy, Wills cute little dog the twosome added a bit of sparkle to already fabulous and well-paced storyline.
Once again, Cressida McLaughlin crafted a book that epitomises the importance of love, friendship and family.
Plus you can also find a selection of some very delicious recipes at the back of the book! Go on make yourself a nice cup of tea and perhaps lavender cookies in the company of this book! It will make your reading heart happy.
The second I got my hands on a copy of this book I knew one thing... and that was that this book was knocking my new Dorothy Koomson book out of my suitcase, and that this was going on holiday with me instead! Now whether that was the correct decision I can't really say yet, as I haven't read both books, but I can say that I adored The Once in a Blue Moon Guesthouse.
The room designs in the guest house itself were rather unique, and I loved the thought and story behind each of them. As Robin has previously run an event company, some of her large plans for various things in Campion Bay seemed unrealistic until everyone pitched in and they pulled off some great things. There were many guests to the guest house and some became more like friends than others, and they generally were all interesting characters as you may expect from a guest house. I really disliked Robin's ex-boyfriend who kept cropping up, he was a real pain, and I'm not sure who if anyone liked him. Whereas Will the man who is sorting out his aunts house next to the guesthouse, was my sort of guy! There are also two adorable pets in this book, one kitten and one dog. This book is a fantastic poolside read and yet again the author has come up with an incredible book that has some great storylines in.
Robin Brennan returns to her home town of Campion Bay to the loving arms of her parents. Why? Read the book! There is never a dull moment between the pages what with family, friendships - old and new - relationships (again, old and new) and the terrific scenic view, so well described that you can almost fool yourself into smelling the salty sea breeze!
This is a lovely, warm read - perfect as a holiday / beach read, and one which I urge you to choose as it will leave you, as you will leave it, with a sigh of complete and total satisfaction. A full five sunny stars from me.
I received an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
