The Restaurant In Pelican Crossing by Maggie Christensen

Charming New Series

The Restaurant In Pelican Crossing by Maggie Christensen is a most delightful contemporary novel. It is the first book in the brand new Pelican Crossing series which promises to be charming.

For fans of Maggie Christensen’s Bellbird Bay, Pelican Crossing is just up the coast. There are mentions of the shops and characters from Bellbird Bay, giving the reader a feeling of familiarity and comfort. Having read the Bellbird Bay series, it is a pure delight to be introduced to new characters in a new setting.

When you settle into a Maggie Christensen book, you just know you will feel comfortable and at home. It is rather like sinking into your slippers after a day on your feet. Pelican Crossing offers a place of refuge, a place we all want to come home to.

We meet a character who is still trying to come to terms with the loss of her childhood sweetheart five years earlier. Family and friends offer love and support. Could now be the time for a new beginning?

Pets are so important in our lives. We meet a small dog who loves his owner, loves walking on the beach and snoozing in his basket. He has been a literal lifesaver as his owner talks to him and he helps her heal from a tragedy.

Pelican Crossing is a charming coastal town. It does not want to become big and brash. The residents pull together in the face of interest from a corporate company.

New life is on the horizon – figuratively and literally. New life, in whatever form, is exciting and to be celebrated.

I adore all Maggie Christensen’s novels. They wrap around me, like a hug in a book. I have loved my first visit to Pelican Crossing and cannot wait for book two.

I received a free copy from the author. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
