Publisher's Summary

The sun is out, and the beach huts at Everdene Sands are filling up once again.

Jemima is artist in residence for the summer, capturing the antics of the holiday makers on canvas. But it's not long before she becomes embroiled in their tangled lives.

Vince and Murphy are best mates, and misspent their youths in the waves and bars of Everdene. Now they are making plans for The Lobster Shack, eager to make their fortune. But Vince's life has been touched by tragedy, and he's finding it hard to move on. Meanwhile, Murphy finds himself in water hotter than he can handle...

Sidonie Lewis has returned to Everdene hoping to bury the past. The memory of her wedding day there is a painful one. Now she is ready to marry again, but she needs one final reconciliation first - and it's the hardest one of all.

Tom and Rachel divided everything straight down the middle when they divorced - everything except their beach hut. But sharing it is proving more difficult than they thought.

It's going to be a summer to remember...

    Story
    "Poor narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was becoming an interesting story as it introduced all the characters backgrounds. However the narration changed after an hour or so and was read like a story aimed at 3 year olds. Subjects such as sex, prison and divorce were read like the characters were on a day out to the zoo. I gave up.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The character development was most interesting.i


    Would you be willing to try another one of Julia Franklin’s performances?

    NO

    "if only!"

    I love Veronica Henry's books but this one isn't one of my favourites.
    it's a good book to listen to but I didn't gel with the characters very much.
    The story lines for each of the people dipicted were a little too 'perfect'for my taste and I felt it came across twee.
    saying that, it was pleasant enough...

    Story
    "Easy relaxed reading"

    Great narrator and excellent story. This is a fab book for lazing in the sun and relaxing with. I have also read The Beach Hut by the same author which I thoroughly enjoyed.
    It comprises of stories of the characters in a seaside resort who all own beach huts but the stories intertwine.
    Well worth reading and I'm going to try some more by this author.
