Daisy's Vintage Cornish Camper Van - by Ali McNamara

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb: 

Welcome to the gorgeous Cornish town of St Felix, where there's magic in the air...
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.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

The book has a very sad beginning. Ana’s best friend Daisy dies and leaves her with big wish. It takes Ana to St Felix, a lovely little town by the sea in Cornwall. 
Ana should get Daisy’s Cornish camper wan and that leads her onto adventure, a big one. 

She finds letters of lovers Lou and Frankie, deals with the loss of her friend and gets to know some new people. Ana is determined to return the letters to the rightful owners and does a lot to find them. She gets help from Noah, who owns a shop in St Felix. Malachi does up her car and also spends a lot of time with Ana. 

The plot of this book is great and it flows beautifully. The characters well lined out as well and they are all so different from each other. 

St Felix is a lovely little town and has so much charm. Ali McNamara found a wonderful way to include it in the story and her descriptions are on point. 

I went through all the emotions reading this book; I laughed, I cried, I felt happy, sad etc. Ali McNamara’s writing is full of passion and heart. I felt so close to the characters and I was really routing for Ana. The book includes mystery, romance, friendship, love, beautiful settings and amazing moments. 

A definite must read!!!!
