ABOUT THE BOOK
Thirty nine-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?
This book is number 3 in the series, but it reads well as a standalone. A delightful journey about self-discovery, making new friends, and following your heart.
Glanna Pascoe is trying to turn her life around. The former spoiled party girl with a drunk driving mark on her record ran from the love of her life and turned to her love of art by opening Hartmouth Gallery in Ferry Lane Market in Cornwall. Will she be able to move on and find peace and happiness in her life?
I admire Glanna for finally taking charge of her life and getting out from under her mother. She went to rehab for her addiction where she met the handsome and patient Oliver Trueman. Their love happened at the wrong time when Glanna was still finding herself and Oliver wanted to start a family. Glanna does not want children and Oliver does, so afraid of losing him, Glanna sabotages their relationship and leaves Oliver behind in London as she starts a new life in Cornwall. Glanna meets new friends including the mysterious and reclusive artist Isaac Benson of whom she finds comfort and peace in his company until she betrays his trust. Glanna has a bad habit of jumping to conclusions which gets her in trouble a number of times, but she learns from her mistakes and makes amends. Her dysfunctional family explains a lot about her insecurities and crazy behavior in the past. Her mother is a slutty cougar who gave Glanna everything but the respect and love she needed, and Glanna’s father just needs to grow a set of balls. Glanna has been placed in the middle of two stubborn and childish parents that need to move it or lose it. It takes a while, but Oliver and Glanna take the long way around to find each other again and find a happily ever after.
The Ferry Lane Market community is delightful and welcoming and I enjoyed the lovely characters. This is a beautiful and uplifting read with artistic locations, and I plan to go back and read the other books in the series.
Thank you to Ms. May for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
