Summary

Ottercombe Bay was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package.

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 12 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?

A very good story, with some expected and unexpected turns, told by a fantastic narrator. Well worth it!

Running time too long...

The narration is okay but the storyline is not particularly engaging and does not really make a lot of sense. The running time is too long as much of what is being said seems to be just space filling. There seems to be a lot going on and there are several characters who get more or less the same amount of dialogue as the main protagonist which is a bit confusing as the story could go off in a different direction but never does, yet I did not feel that the plot flows particularly well and at times the situations being depicted/narrated are confusing as to why/how it is actually relevant to the plot. I did not enjoy the first Audible offering from Bella Osborne ‘Escape To Willow Cottage’ and this title did not rank very highly in enjoyment factor either. All in all disappointing as an Audible offering and I am going to return it for an exchange.
