The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May reviewed by guest author Sue Roebuck

the cocktail BarThe 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.

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.
