The Past Comes to Visit Daisy Wickens (Review)

Escape to the Devon coast, with Part Three of a brand-new four-part serial from the author of Willow Cottage.

Daisy Wickens has returned to Ottercombe Bay, the picturesque Devon town where her mother died when she was a girl. She plans to leave as soon as her great uncle’s funeral is over, but Great Uncle Reg had other ideas. He’s left Daisy a significant inheritance – an old building in a state of disrepair, which could offer exciting possibilities, but to get it she must stay in Ottercombe Bay for twelve whole months.

With the help of a cast of quirky locals, a few gin cocktails and a black pug with plenty of attitude, Daisy might just turn this into something special. But can she ever hope to be happy among the ghosts of her past?

The third part of the Ottercombe Bay serial ramps up on romance and hilarity. Daisy Wickens has finally opened her chocolate and gin bar with the help of her friends and supportive locals.

While the bar seems to be a roaring success the dynamic between Daisy and her friends is shifting. Things are heating up between Tamsyn and Jason, and even Daisy and Max explore their attraction. But this wouldn't be a Bella Osborne story without a series of quirky mishaps that will either make or break these characters. In the previous story, Bug caused Daisy a lot of stress. This time Daisy faces a blast from the past and a lot of head butting with Max. Even though the stories are short, I feel invested in these characters. I hope everything goes well for them even if I enjoy their screw ups along the way!

Raising the Bar feels like the climax leading up to an amazing conclusion. Daisy is still thinking about a future far away from Ottercombe Bay, but will the success of her gin bar and the desire to learn about her mother's past keep her there? Maybe there's a little romance in her future to tie her down. Whatever happens, I am so eager to read the final leg in Daisy's journey!
