    "GREAT READ/LISTEN"

    I really liked this story. I hadnt read a Carole Matthew's book before but gave it a go from the reveiws and they were correct. It was so enjoyable.

    3 couples spend a short break in a Cottage by the Sea. Sounds typical but the charaters where written so well and so interesting. I found myself looking forward to the next day when i could resume the story-line.

    Sometimes there are just too many names, people, events going on but this story was so easy to listen to and understand. I'll be trying another one of Carole Matthew's books.

    "Great story"

    I really enjoyed this book. I always like books about the coast and seaside. This was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed all the characters. I was also very well read. I have read others from this author and was not disappointed in this one.

    "Fantastic chick lit"

    After 4 years of listening to mostly crime fiction I have entered a chick lit phase and I am loving it! I downloaded this as, after some great breaks by the sea this summer I was longing to be by the coast! This novel really did transport me to the Pembrokeshire coast and I became completely drawn into the lives of Grace and her friends. Yes there are lots of chick lit cliches but if you ignore these it's an enjoyable, escapist story. As ever Clare Corbett narrates beautifully but I wasn't convinced by the male characters accents!

    "A lovely holiday read"
    If you could sum up A Cottage by the Sea in three words, what would they be?

    Light-hearted, feel-good, amusing


    Would you recommend A Cottage by the Sea to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes I would recommend this book as something to take on holiday and enjoy by the sea!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you ever fancy living by the sea, this evocative book will have you reaching for the estate agents number.
