In a gorgeous quayside hotel in Cornwall, the long weekend is just beginning….
Claire Marlowe owns ‘The Townhouse by the sea’ with Luca, the hotel’s charismatic chef. She ensures everything runs smoothly – until an unexpected arrival checks in and turns her whole world upside down.
And the rest of the guests arrive with their own baggage. There’s a couple looking for distraction from family tragedy; a man trying to make amends for an affair he bitterly regrets … and a young woman who thinks the Cornish village might hold the key to her past.
Here are affairs of the heart, secrets, lies and scandal – all wrapped up in one long, hot weekend.
I have read a few of Veronica’s books now and they never fail to disappoint. Veronica manages to tell a few different people’s stories in one book, but do not be put off as Veronica does it without it being too overwhelming. I found myself drawn to each and every character and their problems. I didn’t want to put this book down, even though I wanted to find out what happened, I savored every moment. Such a lovely, enjoyable read. One I couldn’t put down.
