Review: Oh Cressida where do I begin.
I had hoped to start reading this the instant it pinged onto my kindle with a beverage but I was in the midst of something else, with the hope of reading it that evening I was then plagued with a headache, which meant my reunion was shelved for another day.
In saying that as much as I’ve been eager to know what happened I also didn’t want to say goodbye to the Cornish seaside once again. As I said on my last review for part three I had loved the original trips to Cornwall when Charlie first emerged but there really has been something about this second outing that’s got under my skin.
From the off the overly dramatic Lila has been a favourite of mine, anyone who can not only create award winning and amazingly sounding coffees but can describe them in the easy fashion that she does is a friend for life. She may get some things wrong but her heart is always in the right place and her intentions are always good. Throughout this novel she’s always put others first and in the final instalment it’s time for her to grab her own happiness by the scruff of the neck. Her friendship with Keeley was heartwarming and lovely to see especially as Keeley had felt like a fish out of water and Lila helped restore her confidence. Seeing Lila and Clara have a deep and meaningful conversation and in restoring their friendship was pretty something and was one of my hopes for Lila before the series ended.
The final instalment is always the catalyst for tying up all the loose ends. For anyone who read my last thoughts you will know there were a number of tears well in the final stages there were a lot more tears.
I have to mention Sam Magee now for anyone who knows me you will know I have a bit of a soft spot for an Irishman. With many of my friends believing that I will end up with an Irishman not that that’s come true as yet. Sam is charming, handsome and a little on the shy side. I don’t want to say too much without ruining the story but let’s say this handsome man does bring me to tears and I hope it’s not the end of Sam Magee.
