The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May reviewed by guest author Sue Roebuck
The Cocktail Bar comes fast on the heels of Oh! What a Pavlova. Although it’s not a sequel, it does continue the author’s unique – and soon-to-be very popular (you mark my words) writing voice which is like a breath of fresh air. I think Ms May enjoys writing so much that her enthusiasm shines off the page.
The prose gallops along without a boring moment as River (the main character) leaves the high life to set up his cocktail bar in Glastonbury. There’s a whole host of quirky characters from bitchy Georgina to hippy Mum populating the book that romps to an ending that will have readers crying out for more (just like the perfect cocktail).
The author, Isabella May lives in (mostly) sunny Andalucia, Spain with her husband, daughter and son, creatively inspired by the sea and the mountains. When she isn’t having her cake and eating it, sampling a new cocktail on the beach, or ferrying her children to and from after school activities, she can usually be found writing.
As a Co-founder and a former contributing writer for the popular online women’s magazine, The Glass House Girls – www.theglasshousegirls.com – she has also been lucky enough to subject the digital world to her other favourite pastimes, travel, the Law of Attraction, and Prince (The Purple One).
She has recently become a Book Fairy, and is having lots of fun with her imaginative ‘drops’!
Oh! What a Pavlova is her debut novel… and her second novel, The Cocktail Bar, was published by Crooked Cat Books in early 2018.
Her most recent novel, “Forest Dancer” is set in Portugal and published by Crooked Cat Books. It is available from Amazon:
