Summary

The house where Stella and her sister, Amy, grew up never changes - the red front door, the breathtaking view over the Cornish coast, her parents in their usual spots on the sofa. Except this summer, things feel a little different....

Stella’s father is nowhere to be seen, yet her mother - in suspiciously new Per Una jeans - seems curiously unfazed by his absence and more eager to talk about her mysterious dog-walking buddy, Mitch.

Stella’s sister, Amy, has returned home with a new boyfriend she can barely stand and a secret to hide, and Stella’s husband, Jack, has something he wants to get off his chest, too. Even Frank Sinatra, the dog, has a guilty air about him.

This summer, change is in the air for the Whitethorns....

Warm, funny and gloriously feel-good, this is the perfect summer read for fans of Veronica Henry and Milly Johnson.
