The Summer of Serendipity
Published 13th July 2017
The magical new summer novel by the author of Little Flower Shop by the Sea
One summer, property seeker, Serendipity Parker finds herself on the beautiful west coast of Ireland, hunting for a home for a wealthy Irish client. But when she finds the perfect house in the small town of Ballykiltara, there’s a problem; nobody seems to know who owns it.
‘The Welcome House’ is a local legend. Its front door is always open for those in need of shelter, and there’s always a plentiful supply of food in the cupboards for the hungry or poor.
While Ren desperately tries to find the owner to see if she can negotiate a sale, she begins to delve deeper into the history and legends that surround the old house and the town. But for a woman who has always been focussed on her work, she’s remarkably distracted by Finn, the attractive manager of the local hotel.
But will she ever discover the real truth behind the mysterious ‘Welcome House’? Or will the house cast its magical spell over Ren and help her to find true happiness?
Ali McNamara attributes her over-active and very vivid imagination to one thing – being an only child. Time spent dreaming up adventures when she was young has left her with a head bursting with stories waiting to be told.
When stories she wrote for fun on Ronan Keating’s website became so popular they were sold as a fundraising project for his cancer awareness charity, Ali realised that not only was writing something she enjoyed doing, but something others enjoyed reading too.

Firstly a big thank you to clara for my proof copy and I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour.
I’ve read a few of her books and they are all delightful and full of a little extra magic.
I was completely transported to the emerald isle , I have never been and it sounds beautiful.
Great characters and a flowing narrative.
You can tell she’s guarded and been hurt in the past but time away from the hustle and bustle seems to be softening her armour. Could she be finding her happy place and most of all who she really is?
Ali is a great storyteller that whisks you away from reality and recently I’ve needed it more than ever.
A book guaranteed to lift your spirits this summer.
