Moonlight Over Studland Bay

I was initially drawn to this book by the title, having grown up in Dorset; I loved the idea of reading a book set in a place I knew. It took no time at all to become immersed in this compelling story.


  • Sam, trying to grow her own business doing what she loves and looking after animals.
  • Abby, Sam’s long time friend and housemate, who gives birth at the beginning of the book.

As I lie on my bed reading, I find myself immersed in an idyllic life, living by the sea, caring for animals, what’s not to love?

Sam has not been so lucky in love, and since the birth of Abby’s baby, you can tell she would like one herself. She just needs to find a way to make that happen. Internet dating seems to be a disaster, but what about her boss, Rex or the mysterious Mr B.

I won’t ruin the ending, other than to impart the sad news that the story does in fact end; but I can tell you that you will fall in love with not only characters in this book, but the whole story and the area where it is set.

Personally, I never wanted the book to end and could just consume it for ever. I will however leave you with a quote from the book, when Sam realised that ‘most dreams were better if they were shared’. I can only comment that this book is well worth sharing; I hope you love it as much as I did.
