Summary

On moving to Brighton, Georgie finds throwing herself into the city's delights fun and exciting, but before she knows it, she's sliding into all kinds of trouble. Charlotte is in the city for a new start, hoping to keep her head down. A terrible revelation sent Rosa running from London, but could her passion for food lead her to more interesting places? As the three tenants find each other, it's as if a whole new chapter of their lives has begun.

This author's skills just get better.

I've always quite liked L D 's books; but this 1 is quite superior on several levels. Good, in depth, character development, until I the reader really felt I knew how each of the protagonists minds worked. Good insight into human nature. Plot was interesting, funny, sad; the lot. A good read indeed. Not Nobel Prize- winning literature- just vey interesting & enjoyable, with food for thought.

Brighton in all it's glory with a wonderful story

Lucy Diamond has triumphed here and perfectly captured the vibe of Brighton. This story is both engaging and thought provoking. Going into too much detail about the characters would be somewhat of a ‘spoiler’ however this book is most certainly worth a credit or indeed bought as a paid purchase. I loved this book and only wish that Lucy would write a follow up as I would be very interested in finding out how the main characters progressed and what happened if new tenants moved into ‘The House Of New Beginnings’.

Fun, easy to listen and entertaining.

once you start listening you really fall in love with the characters, you want to know what happens to them
, but more importantly you end up rooting for them. great book and as a result I've downloaded another one of hers

Good book - poor northern narration

I generally love Lucy diamond books but the narration of this made me stop listening repeatedly - generally it was ok but when the narrator kept using her 'Yorkshire' accent it drove me crazy. I usually finish them quite quickly but not this time - just purely down to irritation. The story is a lovely though.

Loved it

Really enjoyed all the different characters in this book, easy to keep up with them all. Would love a sequel to see how they are all doing.

You just never know when your luck will change

Quite a good and enjoyable story line told with amusing dialect voices for the characters. Nothing heart stopping happens,however the story is interesting, the dialogue good and the reading excellent and overall very much worth the listen .

A bit depressing

It was an interesting story and had some great points but it seemed to rabble on a bit in a rather depressing manner

Absolutely Loved it!

I loved this book, the author really helps you connect with the characters, while the narrator brings them to life. Lucy Diamond has done it again, a story full of life, loss and love.
