Summary

Liz has found refuge in the small fishing village of Tremarnock with her young daughter, Rosie, after her relationship with Rosie's father came unstuck.

Now that she's happily married to village restaurant owner Robert Hart, all seems set for a quiet autumn and merry Christmas. But strangers have bought the local guesthouse and seem to have big plans. Why is he so charming and confident, but she's so frightened? And what are they really doing with the guesthouse?

Lovely book

This is the second book in this series I have read. I love it love it. Has generally a real feel good factor about it which I personally love. (I know not all is feel good) but not going to spoil it for others. I like the way the villagers all rally together. Her descriptions of Cornwall are excellent and just makes me want to go on holiday. I want to move to this town with this community spirit if only ....
The narrator did a fantastic job well done.
I like the way this author has a way of covering very real and sensitive issues but without making the story incredibly sad or depressing or heart wrenching. She weaves a nasty steady path with dreadful incidents but with bundles of hope.
I would thoroughly recommend this book.

Slow start

Bit slow to start with and difficult to get a grasp of the story but when it comes it's good!

Thoroughly good story!

I really enjoyed listening to this story and the development of both the characters and the storyline. It is well crafted and the characters are very believable, and the twists in the storyline from about halfway through are a real punch in the stomach, leaving the listener to wonder how things can possibly even start to resolve! Georgia Maguire does an excellent job of reading the story and the voices for the various characters. Altogether an excellent read which I really recommend.

oh dear

If you like this genre...which I clearly don't, I am sure you'll love it. It is predictable, extremely irritating, paints all women as non to bright, and needing "a big stwong man to take care of them and pwotect them" yukh... the men...well!! really???
I am not sure what to add, if you can't work out extactly who did what to whom almost after the first chapter, then carry on I am sure you'll love it.
I would have returned it , but I don't want to do that too often in case I get banned, so I stuck it out for 12 hours and 49 excruciating minutes..get my drift?

Great story

Highly recommend this book. Great story couldn't wait to hear each chapter. I was surprised at how the story developed, lots of intrigue and excitement, not what I was expecting at all. Beautifully narrated by Georgia Maguire.

Very enjoyable

A charming story especially as many of the characters we already know from the first book about Tremarnock.

Well read. Easy voice to listen to. Largely a gentle storyline.

A good listen between heavier meaty novels.

A taste of all things Cornish.

Every character comes alive through delightful descriptions, making you feel as if you know them personally.

Wanted it to go on and on.

Nice story with rich character development

Took awhile to get into the story but about midway it started to pick up. Excellent performance by the narrator!
