The warm and wonderful new novel from the natural heir to Maeve Binchy.... Tess used to be happy with her lot: she lives in the idyllic Irish coastal village, Avalon, with her teenage son, Zach, and nine-year-old Kitty, and works in the local antiques shop. Her only regret in life is that everything went so horribly wrong with her first love. Then her marriage falls apart and her first love returns to Avalon.

Loved this audiobook, loved all of the characters and missed them when the book had finished which I always think is a great sign of a good audiobook, I enjoyed the narration too very much. Would highly recommend this to fans of Maeve Binchey etc

The Sheedy sisters had lived in Stone House for as long as anyone could remember. Set high on the cliffs on the west coast of Ireland, overlooking the windswept Atlantic ocean, it was falling into disrepair - until one woman, with a past she needed to forget, breathed new life into the place. Now a hotel, with a big, warm kitchen and log fires, it provides a welcome few can resist. Winnie is generally able to make the best of things until she finds herself on the holiday from hell.

My first audio book which I thoroughly enjoyed. Maeve at her best as usual and the narration by Caroline Lennon was lovely to listen too although couldn't listen too in bed as kept putting me to sleep!!
