Book Review “Rainbows End in Ferry Lane Market” by Nicola May



Rainbows End in Ferry Lane Market

Book Three in bestselling sensation Nicola May’s gorgeous new series – catch up with Book One, WELCOME TO FERRY LANE MARKET, and Book Two, STARRY SKIES IN FERRY LANE MARKET, now!

39-year-old Glanna Pascoe – also known as ‘the Rainbow Painter’ – runs the Hartmouth Gallery in Ferry Lane Market in Cornwall. She is just getting her head and broken heart around being single, childless, and sober when Cupid flies in, shooting arrows all over the place.

Meeting the mysterious and fascinating Isaac Benson, famous local artist, and recluse, allows Glanna’s disillusioned heart and attitude to soften, and she begins to learn more about herself than she ever thought possible. Confused by her growing feelings for Isaac, Glanna throws herself into organising a life-drawing class at her gallery, using both male and female nudes – and setting local tongues wagging.

A theft from her gallery and the return of ex-love Oliver Trueman cause Glanna to wonder if a pot of gold will be appearing at the end of her rainbow. And will it bring her the happiness, she has sought for so long?


A true piece of escapism. A book to indulge yourself with, full of fabulous characters with lives that just make you want to up sticks and move. I adored Glanna, she has flaws and more flaws yet she is trying incredibly hard to put things right and just be a great business woman who is no longer a huge drinker, racing about having sex with practically everyone she sees. I loved her openness and honesty. A beautiful character who is one of those people you’d like to be friends with.

This book, the second I have read by Nicola May does not disappoint, it just captivates you in a lovely warm hug kind of way.There are plenty of laughs along the way. The humour is brilliant and I found myself laughing out loud at times. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey of Glanna’s developing relationships, especially Isaac. A very closed off and private man who she manages to help in more ways than he could ever have imagined.

All in all a wonderfully enjoyable read that takes you on a wonderous journey through art galleries, stolen pictures, love, unrequited love, strong friendships and so much more. A definite cosy read that you can just get lost in. I loved it immensely.
