Moonlight Over Muddleford Cove
When thirty-four-year-old Nellie Wagstaff loses her job and discovers her fiancé is a cheating scumbag in a single day, she feels like the world has come crashing down. And that’s before the solicitor’s letter, along with a request to visit a place she hasn’t thought about for a very long time.
Heartbroken, Nellie escapes to the beautiful seaside town of Muddleford in Dorset, where she discovers she’s inherited more than she ever bargained for. Nellie never knew why her mother stopped talking to her sister, but now childhood memories of Muddleford come flooding back: long hot summers, the sea glistening beyond the sandy cove… and a stolen kiss with a boy called Jack.
Jack, now a devilishly handsome vet, has the local pet owners swooning over him, and as Nellie and he become close once more, and she gets used to gossiping with the locals and sipping wine at her beach hut with sand between her toes, she’s sure she can feel sparks flying once more. But just as she thinks she might be able to open her heart again, her newest frenemy, the glamourous Natalia, tells her a secret about Jack that changes everything.
Nellie will never know why her mother and aunt parted ways. She’ll sell the house, forget about Jack, and get back to real life. Because there’s nothing for her in Muddleford… is there?
An utterly uplifting and completely hilarious summer read about learning to trust yourself and of finding love and friendship in the least expected places for fans of Jessica Redland, Heidi Swain and Holly Martin.
Nellie Wagstaff has a good job and is planning her wedding too, so she feels as though everything is quite alright with her life as it is. That is until everything changes within the space of a week when everything that she could possibly imagine going wrong occurs, and suddenly her life has become a complete disaster zone.
Nellie is in desperate need of something good happening in her life – so when she finds herself being summoned back to Dorset for the reading of her Aunt Lil’s will, she is feeling rather deflated. Nellie is preparing for a short stay in Dorset, however she is far from prepared for all that awaits her there.
Dorset is a place that holds so many memories for Nellie, both good and bad. As Nellie tries to take each day in her stride, that is until she runs in to Jack – an old friend of hers, who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Their easy friendship and banter returns immediately, almost as though no time has passed at all. But there is one huge difference this time around, and that is the fact that Jack is not a free agent, something that doesn’t sit all too well with Nellie.
However, not everyone in the village makes her feel all too welcome, in fact at times she wonders whether she should just pack up her bags and head back to the Midlands right away, but she grows stronger with every passing day, and with the freedom to take long walks along the beach whenever she feels the need, she is struggling to find any reason at all too leave.
I adored everything about this wonderful story!. Kim Nash has such a marvellous way of telling a story, it is told in such a way that you can really picture the setting and situations playing out so vividly in your mind. The storyline flows beautifully and really takes the reader through a wave of emotions as we follow Nellie’s story.
The characters are endearing and so relatable, I could see parts of myself flickering in the characters personalities as we learnt more about them. Each of them bring a lot to this fabulous story and add extra depth as the story progresses.
Beautifully written and totally enchanting, this is a story that is impossible to forget.
