The Beachside Flower Stall – Karen Clarke

The Beachside Flower Stall sees the author returning to Beachside Bay, which she introduced us to in her first novel The Beachside Sweet Shop. Instead of sweets to indulge ourselves in it is flowers!

Carrie returns to help Ruby, her aunt with her flower stall whilst she is feeling a bit blue. Carrie is totally out of her comfort zone with flowers being an accountant she much prefers figures. But with nothing else to do it seems that it is the best option.

Carrie is not only launched into running a flower stall without any help as Ruby’s assistant Jane decides she needs to do something to bring her marriage back to life immediately, she also agrees to provide flowers for a local wedding.

However, the wedding might be a problem. It is between her schoolgirl crush, Tom and her one time friend Megan. She escaped from them before, will she have to do it again?

Can Carrie put the past behind her? Can she interfere in Ruby’s past successfully? Or will it all be a disaster?

This is a book with wonderful laugh out loud moments, not least from some of the situations Carrie finds herself in. With plenty of heart warming moments too this book has it all for a satisfying read.
