Everyone adores Christmas . . .
Especially Lizzy Kingham. But this year, she is feeling unloved and underappreciated by her family. The present-buying, decorating and food shopping have all been left to her. So she wonders . . . what would happen if she ran away and left them to it?
Lizzy heads to her favourite place: a beach hut on the golden sands of Everdene. There she meets an unlikely collection of new friends, all running away from something. But the spirit of Christmas gets under Lizzy’s skin: soon the fairy lights are twinkling and the scent of mulled wine mingles with the sea air.
Back at Pepperpot Cottage, her family are desperate to find her. For Christmas isn’t Christmas without Lizzy. Can they track her down in time and convince her she means the world to them, every day of the year?
Reading a book of Veronica’s is like having a warm comforting hug. I couldn’t wait to get back to the beach hut stories and this one was just as fabulous as the last. The book is broken down into three people’s stories and they are ones that people I think can probably relate too. I love how Lizzy describes the beach hut and what she does for others reminds me of my mum and how much we should cherish the ones we have close. Christmas always brings families together with delicious food. I wanted this book to go on and on.

‘FOR SALE: a rare opportunity to purchase a beach hut on the spectacular Everdene Sands. “The Shack” has been in the family for fifty years, and was the first to be built on this renowned stretch of golden sand…’
Jane Milton doesn’t want to sell her beloved beach hut, which has been the heart of so many family holidays and holds so many happy memories. But when her husband dies, leaving her with an overwhelming string of debts, she has no choice but to sell.
THE BEACH HUT follows the stories of the people who own the beach huts, families who come to Everdene each year, people who fall in – or out of – love, remembering their pasts, or trying to forget them…
Veronica Henry has brilliantly drawn together the comings and goings of life at the beach huts over one long, hot, lazy summer…
I love Veronica’s books they always seem to leave a lasting impression. There are lots of characters in this book, the main one being Jane, Veronica transports us back in time so we can learn about Jane’s childhood, which was very interesting. With the other characters in this book, Veronica seems to give us a glimpse into their lives with enough information to get you hooked. I love the cover of this book it reminded me of growing up and going to the beach, there is a certain calm about it also. I have also just realised that Veronica has published ‘The Beach Hut Next Door’ in July of this year, so will be heading out to pick that one up right away. Such a delightful read from an amazing author.
