This book made me realize what had been missing from my life – magic!! And there were just heaps of it, making me believe in the beauty of rainbow all over again.
Ana inherits her best friend Daisy’s camper van and decides to drive it back home from St. Felix to London. But coming to St. Felix was like coming to a magical place where the soul heals. And she meets the handsome Irish hunk of a mechanic Malachi, and a quiet antique dealer Noah, and quite a few of the town’s lovely residents.
This was my first book my author Ali McNamara, and what a soothing book it was. It made me believe in signs from the heavens, made me believe in the everlasting friendships, made me believe in magic. It was totally a feel good book, no grey characters.
I liked Ana in some ways. She did love her friend Daisy. And I liked how Malachi and St. Felix charmed her into staying. Her interactions with the people of the town often made me smile. The book revolved around finding old postcards in the camper van about an old love. I liked how Ana and Noah joined forces to solve the mystery and later joined forces in love.
But the book took me 4 days to read – why you ask? Oh my niggles; there can be too much of a good thing, too many of these heavenly signs. I would have liked to know more about Ana and Daisy’s friendship. Something more to add to the flavor, I just wanted the story to be a bit more layered
And I loved Malachi, he was an absolute dreamboat, a tattooed mechanic, with a heart of gold, a charm that never ended, and a hint of those angelic wings. Malachi made the book an exciting read!!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Sphere, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 4 stars

When Ana inherits a broken-down camper van from her best friend, she takes the chance for a quick trip to Cornwall – some sea air and fish and chips on the beach is just the tonic she needs.
But St Felix has bigger plans for Ana. She discovers a series of unsent postcards, dating back to the 1950s, hidden in the upholstery of the van. Ana knows that it’s a sign: she’ll make sure that the messages reach the person that they were meant for. And as the broken-down van is restored to gleaming health, so Ana begins to find her way back to happiness.
