All about Evie by Cathy Lamb



Stunning setting of an island which I had to google to find out where it was this is a lovely story of an unusual girl.

Evie has always been unsettled. Despite ample love from her parents and sisters and extended family of lovable, quirky aunts she has one trait which no one in the family has. Her ability of premonitions which has put a huge burden on her shoulders. When should she act on them and when should she ignore them (she did ignore several mainly for the benefit of the survivors).

When inevitably the secret comes out, Evie and her family are at peace but getting there was the fun. Romance, pot growining 70 year olds, a bookshop (could we ask for a better setting) and a new police chief who has his eye on Evie and is not letting go.

This was a wonderful story of family, secrets (all families do have them), and finally peace when it is all in the open.  To cap it all a beautiful setting both the bookshop and the natural surroundings.

The one criticism -the cover.

Oh, so happy you liked this, I love her books, this one was a little wacky but she has such great underlying messages. Yay. I liked this one too.

This one sounds good. But yeah, I'm not sure about the cover.
