Summary

Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay is a romantic, funny and pause-resisting new novel about love and friendship from Jill Mansell, best-selling author of The One You Really Want and You and Me, Always. Perfect for anyone who loves Lucy Diamond, Milly Johnson and Katie Fforde.

Love is in the air in St Carys, but you'd never know it - the people of this seaside town are very good at keeping secrets....

The man Clemency loves belongs to someone else. She has to hide her true feelings - but when she ropes in an unsuspecting friend to help, wires start to get crossed.

For the first time in Ronan's life his charm has failed him in winning over the woman he wants. Loving her from afar appears to be his only option.

Belle seems to have the perfect boyfriend, but something isn't quite right. And now a long-buried secret is slowly rising to the surface.

The truth has a funny way of revealing itself, and when it does St Carys will be a very different place indeed....

Some lovely twists

A very easy listener. A nice mix of characters - some likeable, some not - and some interesting twists!

Had me gripped from start to finish

Audio books are still new to me and this is my second Jill Mansell one, in the past month or so, narrated by Imogen Church. I loved This Could Change Everything, particularly the character of Zillah. This one also did not disappoint. I tend to only listen when I'm walking my dogs or doing the food shop, but both of these books caused me to listen at other times too. When I first started listening to this though I had to wonder where Cornwall was going to come into it as I was somewhat thrown by the first chapter. I wasn't kept waiting long though and as the story progressed, the more I fell in love with the characters. This is such a charming story, which tackles many different issues, come difficult and unexpected and some not. Not only have I fallen in love with the way that Jill Mansell writes, but also the way Imogen Church narrates. Long may their now, hopefully fruitful, relationship continue. A must listen to in my book at least. Happy Listening.

An excellent read

Yet again Jill Mansell has written the perfect book. I so enjoyed the twists and turns and laughed on loud at the humour and cried at the "soppy" bits!
I cannot wait to listen to the next one in my "Library" .

Annoyingly predictable

There were so many unbelievable coincidences which happened to the couple in this story it made it lack authenticity. The lady reading it tried to do voices for different characters but unfortunately they sounded like comedy voices.
