Anna and Zoe are twins. Identical in appearance, utterly different in personality, they share a bond so close that nothing - or no one - can rip them apart. Until Anna meets charismatic Nick. Anna is trusting, romantic and hopeful; she thinks Nick is perfect. Zoe is daring, dangerous and extreme; she thinks Nick is a liar. Zoe has seen Anna betrayed by men before. She'll stop at nothing to discover if Nick is as good as he seems. The problem is, lies may hurt. But honesty can kill.

Great story, different from other books I’ve read lately. Really well read too. Disappointed by the ending but that’s just me.

Just disappointingly short again. The first book was amazing no want to hear more about the cafe and the village and all characters we met in the first book. Please please write a full length sequel.

With her Beach Café closed for the winter, Evie should be looking forward to lazy days and a happy Christmas… But her sister Ruth is coming to stay, following her marriage breakdown and her boyfriend Ed breaks the news that he's going to spend Christmas in London, for family reasons. There are still a few surprises in store for Evie though, that look set to make this Beach Café Christmas the most memorable one yet....
