Hunter’s Moon is the ultimate ‘forever’ house. Nestled by a river in the Peasebrook valley, it has been the Willoughbys’ home for over fifty years, and now estate agent Belinda Baxter is determined to find the perfect family to live there.
But the sale of the house unlocks decades of family secrets – and brings Belinda face to face with her own troubled past. . .
There is just something magical about Veronica Henry’s writing, it is like pure escapism. It just feels very real as though you are experiencing it like the characters are. I found the story line to be quite refreshing and a bit different but I liked it. A page turner at it’s best.

Everyone has a story . . . but will they get the happy ending they deserve?
Emilia has just returned to her idyllic Cotswold hometown to rescue the family business. Nightingale Books is a dream come true for book-lovers, but the best stories aren’t just within the pages of the books she sells – Emilia’s customers have their own tales to tell.
There’s the lady of the manor who is hiding a secret close to her heart; the single dad looking for books to share with his son but who isn’t quite what he seems; and the desperately shy chef trying to find the courage to talk to her crush . . .
And as for Emilia’s story, can she keep the promise she made to her father and save Nightingale Books?
What a superb read. Veronica Henry is one of my favourite authors and when I saw this book out I knew I had to read it. You get to meet some interesting characters along the way in this book and learn a little about each one of them. This is a friendly and affectionately tale of everyday life in the Cotswold Village of Peasbrook, I couldn’t put the book down it gripped me right from the start. Veronica Henry has written a brilliant book here and I think it has to be one of my favourites of hers.

Pennfleet might be a small town, but there’s never a dull moment in its narrow winding streets …
Kate has only planned a flying visit to clear out the family home after the death of her mother. When she finds an anonymous letter, she is drawn back into her own past.
Single dad Sam is juggling his deli and two lively teenagers, so romance is the last thing on his mind. Then Cupid fires an unexpected arrow – but what will his children think?
Nathan Fisher is happy with his lot, running picnic cruises up and down the river, but kissing the widow of the richest man in Pennfleet has disastrous consequences.
Vanessa knows what she has done is unseemly for a widow, but it’s the most fun she’s had for years. Must she always be on her best behaviour?
I have now read quite a few of Veronica Henry’s books and loved them, this one was just as good. There are lots of interesting main characters and when I first started the book and read about Kate and Vanessa I felt drawn to them and cared for them. Veronica brings the small Cornish town to life with her beautiful descriptions you can almost imagine you are there. There are four main characters really including Vanessa, Kate, Sam and Nathan and I loved going on each and every one of their journey and finding out more about them, I really recommend reading this book and I love the way Veronica Henry’s books make you feel. Such a good read.

And finally Penny, local GP and recent divorcee, who is determined not to hurtle into middle age embittered and lonely.
Over the long winter months, the four of them share advice, copious bottles of wine, laughter … and maybe more.
Veronica Henry is one of my favourite authors. This was such a fantastic read, Veronica seems to be able to put together a beautifully heart warming story with such fabulous characters. I loved how all the characters interact with each other and how Withybrook felt right as a community where everyone sticks together. I think Veronica could of easily made a sequel to this book as I and I am sure a lot of other people would of liked to have know what happens in the future for Charlotte. A real page turner that I couldn’t resist reading it in a day.
‘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.

Definitely a page turner i managed to read it within a couple of days. I love Veronica Henry’s books they always manage to make me smile and shed a few tears.
