Publisher's Summary

Overlooking Angel Sands, an idyllic bay tucked into the Pembrokeshire coastline, sits Paradise House. It is home to the Baxter girls, or the "Sisters of Whimsy" as they're known locally. Despite their own chaotic love lives (there's no one brave enough to take them on and stay the course), they're determined to find a suitable partner for their divorced father. But this will be no easy task, for he's a man so shy of women he would rather climb up onto the roof in a howling gale to fix a broken slate than go on a date.

    "Enjoyable and heart-warming family story"

    The precis given for this book is misleading. The part played by his daughters in trying to solve their father's marital problems is a small thread in the main story which is mainly about those three daughters and their lives and loves, particularly that of Genevieve, the oldest daughter. Badly betrayed by her two best friends in her late teens she has chosen to live a somewhat secluded life, looking after her father and her sisters, in the B & B which they have decided to run in Paradise House. When her teenage boyfriend re-appears she has to re-evaluate her life and choices in a story that is both enjoyable and heart-warming.

    "A well structured tale"

    This is mainly about Genevieve Baxter, the eldest of three sisters. Through a series of flash backs, into her memory since she was a child, you gradually get to know, all about her life. And when the story is set, there emerges the dramas of a
    complicated family. Paradise House is a well structured tale, using the names Angel Sands, Angel Cottage and Paradise House(of course)to add charm. The narrator, Jenny Agutter, is a little bit wooden, although she's generally okay.
