Spring Tides at Swallowtail Bay by Katie Ginger

Today I am delighted to be hosting the blog tour for Spring Tides at Swallowtail Bay by Katie Ginger.


Escape to the cosy seaside town of Swallowtail Bay, the perfect place for a fresh start – but is Stella’s new beginning over before it’s begun?

Licking her wounds from her divorce, Stella impulsively buys a gift shop and two holiday lets in glorious Swallowtail Bay, hoping for a fresh start with her King Charles Spaniel Frank.

When the neighbours meet her with a warm welcome, Stella knows she’s found the new home she was looking for. Even gorgeous but grumpy local Miles can’t take the shine off things. But then her ex-husband announces he’s getting married again, and someone in the village starts gossiping about Stella…

Is Stella’s dream over already? Or, with her new friends behind her, can Stella fight back and save her new life – and find the happy ever after she’s been waiting for?

Fans of Cathy Bramley, Debbie Johnson and Jenny Colgan will fall in love with Swallowtail Bay!


My thoughts

This is such a light, delightful read!  I absolutely adored both setting and characters.  Stella is an instantly likeable character and you can’t help but cheer her on as she fights to build a bright and shiny new life for herself.  Unfortunately the spring tide can bring in all sorts of  flotsam and jetsam, some of which is mightily unwanted and Stella does face more than her fair share of challenges. This a wonderfully engaging, escapist read about starting over, friendship and the reminder that first impressions aren’t always as they seem.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, it was like a breathe of fresh, sea air!  Oh and Frank is absolutely adorable, he was by far one of my very favourite characters.  Thoroughly recommended.

Many thanks to the lovely people at HQ Stories for inviting me to take part in this blog tour and for my review copy.

Spring Tides at Swallowtail Bay is available in Ebook and will be published in paperback on May 14th 2020.
