  • This is a nice enjoyable easy read with some quirky and interesting characters, the story is nothing new but it s told in a nice way and being set in a oyster farm has to be a first, I think Fi annoyed me at times when she refused to stand up for herself or even what was right and Nancy reminded me a little of a Disney villain.

  • Original review posted on snazzybooks I don t read a lot of chick lit I hate that term and it s quite wide genre but I do love certain authors of this style, including Marian Keyes, Sophie Kinsella and JoJo Moyes I ve never read any Jo Thomas though, so thought I d give The Oyster Catcher a go This is a feel good, easy to read novel with likeable characters and a fun, light hearted storyline that centers around Fi, who s in Ireland for her honeymoon but is now suddenly single, having been dumped [...]


  • I read Jo Thomas second novel before this I enjoyed both as light, entertaining reads In The Oyster Catcher we are transported to County Galway and learn about oyster farming as well as tales of the heart The opening is great, so it caught my imagination immediately The heroine is feisty but not too much She s made mistakes and she s at a vulnerable point in her life, so something for lots of readers to identify with The hero is interesting and not perfect either Altogether a charming love story [...]


  • This is a lovely read Fiona, having just been jilted at the altar makes her way to Galway and takes a job at an oyster farm despite her fear of water This book quickly makes you fall in love with the many quirky characters and although a little predictable at times, really has some feel good moments that make for a good story Given to me by a friend, who is making me love this genre of books, I highly recommend for a good fluffy read


  • I wasn t expecting to, but I loved this book It paints an incredibly vivid picture of a small coastal town in Ireland, and introduced me to the detail and culture of oyster farming in an engaging way that made me want to run off and try the thing myself reminds me in this way of books I loved in childhood such as Johanna Spyri s Heidi The view of this life is romantic, but not in too sunny a way The Oyster Catcher is also packed with conflict It s clear how hard it is to make it as an oyster far [...]


  • A lovely novel Easy reading I smiled often reading this book I m most certainly glad that my surnames not Clutterbuck.An excellently written description paints an artist canvas of Galway Bay and it s surrounding Irish havens The homeliness described by the author is very true of the inhabitants of these tiny villages Also the authors inflection to keepNative oysters in their home country and not for export shows the respect needed to protect their natural habitat from over farming Naturally addi [...]


  • This is the first book I have read by this author and will be reading I thoroughly enjoyed it and found I just wanted to keep reading to find out what happened next Excellent story line with good characters and had you wondering what would happen next Fi ends up in a village after crashing a camper van after escaping from her wedding where her husband said he didn t love her and she ran and ended up in this village with no money and no home nothing she ends up getting a job for Sean at his oyst [...]


  • Fiona runs away from England after her wedding to Brian was called off just after the last minute She ends up in a small rural Irish community and taking a job with Sean on his Oyster farm, despite having a fear of water.I loved the interactions between Fi and Sean, and the descriptions of the setting The processes involved in running an oyster farm were interesting, and not something I had read about before The Oyster Catcher was a sweet story, that was a nice easy read.


  • This is the second book I have read by Jo Thomas I loved The Olive Branch and The Oyster Catcher is just as good Some great characters in this book and Jo certainly knows how to bring them to life You knew there would be a happy ending after the struggles and laughs along the way I now want a donkey of my own


  • It was good, it was just a little bit over the top at times and the character s made some terrible choices But I did like Fi and Sean and I now know loads about Oysters I would definitely read from Jo Thomas in the future.


  • Lockerleicht und zuckers , nur gegen Ende hab ich ein paar Nerven gelassen, weil die Autorin einen ganz sch n zappeln l sst D


  • I have heard about The Oyster Catcher on Twitter first of course Where else , and then I read the blurb and thought, wow, this is for sure a book for me So when it arrived on my doorsteps I was than happy to put all my cleaning cooking ironing shopping away and just stick my nose in the pages And well, my gut feeling was right once again, because it WAS book for me.While The Oyster Catcher is Jo s debut novel, I have already read her short story The Chestnut Tree which I really adored, but now [...]


  • This is the first of Jo s books I ve read, and In airway searching for another to add to my every growing, long list of books on my kindle Fiona, just married and supposed to be on her honeymoon, driving around Ireland in a camper van has an accident in Dooleybridge, gets into trouble with the local garda, loses the camper van and gets a job, all in the surface of a few hours The job is on an oyster farm run by Sean, oh, and she s afraid of water Sean, a reclusive oyster farmer has taken over hi [...]


  • An enjoyable feel good summer read about finding who you really are and facing the past in order to move on to the future The first pages were absolutely intriguing although the novel is, in fact, quite light romance rom com fiction It wasn t disappointing because I enjoyed it but it wasn t what I was expecting However, the detail about the breeding and gathering of oysters was very interesting, and the characters were well drawn Recommended.


  • I was drawn to this book by the sample 1st chapter and it did not disappoint when I bought the complete book An interestingly written story with a colourful description of oyster farming and the kinds of conflict that can destroy the life of a community It is an easy book to read the story lines and side stories adding an interesting dimension and yet not overwhelming the basic focus There are some books that I can read twice or I think this might be one of those.


  • A really entertaining aga saga and that is not meant as a negative description in any way but a description of me sitting curled up in a warm spot unable to put the book down Not your typical romance gone wrong run away meet new romance but don t realise fall in love nearly lose it all happy ending but with an interesting setting and plot.


  • Read this pretty much in one day it was a holiday okay This is the 2nd book I ve read from Jo Thomas and all I can say is that after finishing this one I ve decided I m going to read all her novels now This book isn t to be overanalysed, just pure take your shoes off, lay back on the couch with a warm drink and dream away to this romantic love story


  • A brilliant romantic book, written just how us readers like it I loved the characters and the interaction between them The story was well told with heartfelt pain and anguish as well as luck and loving thoughts and romantic moments throughout.Well done and deserves all the praise this book has been given and no doubt will be given.


  • Poor Fi, jilted at the alter, running away, crashing a camper van and getting involved with oyster farming when she is terrified of water She tries to help but creates disaster then trouble trying to right her wrongdoing.I spent my time reading this book and egging her on silently whispering, Come on, you CAN do it and she did


  • A good read Couldn t put it down Story revolves around an oyster farm, with three main characters the ups downs of running that farm It has it s good sad moments, but it s an unusual idea for a story.


  • I couldn t put it downWhat a lovely, lovely read From the very first page, I was hooked Wonderfully written, easy to read and gripping sort line Can t wait to read Jo, s next book.





  • A very easy read Pulled at the heart strings and made you think of who you were, who you are and where your going in life, love and work and weather you have fulfilment in your life.





  • Every so often a book comes along that is perfect for the mood you are in I really needed a pick me up, and this was the book that provided it It had one of the enjoyable openings to a book I ve read in a while, and really sets the scene for the mayhem that is about to ensue With over 600 4 and 5 ratings I had a fair idea this book would be good, it was brilliant I started the book early in the evening, and was still reading in the early hours.Fiona Clutterbuck what a name arrives in the villag [...]
