Something about Darling Island... a house swap by the sea. Kindle Edition
The brand new trilogy from the author of The Boat House Pretty Beach.
The funny, heart-breaking and uplifting new novel in Polly Babbington’s Darling Island series.
It's time for us to get back to Darling Island where the local time is so very far from care. Please remain seated with your seat belts fastened and trays in the upright position until we have crossed over on the floating bridge. Get ready for the ride, people. This is going to be good.
Life for Jane Le Romancer is all sorts of small. She goes to work, sits in her office, talks to her laptop, swirls around in a sea of numbers, goes home, talks to her laptop again, has dinner and the next day does the same thing again. Rinse and repeat.
With her only son away and her only friends scattered all over the place, she’s wondering what life is all about. She lives day to day via her online groups, cooking for one, pottering with her garden and receiving one too many visits from the postman.
One morning as she’s sitting in the office after a particularly interesting conversation with her laptop, an online post catches her eye.
House Swapper Wanted.
Come and stay in my gorgeous old mews house on Darling Island and enjoy all the coastal delights in the sweetest little house nestled by the sea. With its floating bridge, vintage Darling Street trams, delightful cosy pubs, gorgeous old fishing boats and secret cafes tucked away down little lanes, while away your days Darling style. Enjoy long walks by the sea, get to experience the blue waters of Darling Island’s bay and lap up the special flora and fauna all around.
Before Jane knows it, she’s swapping her three-storey house in a leafy London street for a tiny little place on an island shrouded in a hazy blue.
Will Jane’s life swap end up opening her eyes to everything that’s been missing in life or will she be wondering what in the world she’s done?
Something About Darling Island is the FIRST book in Polly's Something trilogy, it is book FOUR in the Darling series overall.
All Darling Island and Pretty Beach cosy trilogies and all books finish with a conclusion and can therefore be read as standalones. Each trilogy within the series can be read on its own and out of order. (If you would like to read from the very beginning start with book 1 of the Pretty Beach series, The Boat House Pretty Beach.)
'A magical romantic setting, wonderful storytelling and a whole lot of escape and dreams. The perfect tale to curl up with as you settle down in the small town and lose yourself to your happy place on the English coast.'

I love that romance can happen to anyone when they least expect it and of course on quaint, popular Darling Island. The gossip grape vine is particularly humerous.
The only thing I don't like is that story ends before I am ready!
No time for more, off to order the next in series.
I have this book a five star review as there is no option for a six star. Great job Polly Babbington xxxxx
Please don't ever stop writing
