In a gorgeous quay-side hotel in Cornwall, the long weekend is just beginning...
Claire Marlowe owns 'The Townhouse by the Sea' with Luca, the hotel's charismatic chef. She ensures everything runs smoothly - until an unexpected arrival checks in and turns her whole world upside down. And the rest of the guests arrive with their own baggage. There's a couple looking for distraction from a family tragedy; a man trying to make amends for an affair he bitterly regrets...and the young woman who thinks the Cornish village might hold the key to her past.
Here are affairs of the heart, secrets, lies and scandal - all wrapped up in one long, hot weekend.

"Classic chit lit"
If you want a story that is full of twists and turns and you can suspend you disbelief that so much can happen in one weekend then this is the story for you. It is so easy to relate to all the characters and the story behind every one is so believable. If you are looking for a relaxing read / listen you can't go wrong with this
"Very believable story brilliantly narrated."
All of the couples in the book have very interesting stories to tell. So many contrasting lives. I like a realistic book and felt a real connection to all the characters. The narration made the book come alive. A wonderfully descriptive author who made me want to stay in the area and at the hotel
"Simple, captivating story, loved it!"
I really enjoyed this book, the story was captivating and enjoyable to the end.
Well written by Veronica Henry, and Anna Bentinck's narrating was exquisite.
I have just purchased "A night on the Orient Express" same author and narrator. I have high hopes.
"A little predicatable, but worth the listen."
A lovely story about 5 different sets of people all converging in a little hotel over a bank holiday weekend. All stories were belivable and were intriging in their own right.
Loved the character of the cheating husband and his mistress and child.
The narrator was good - I would happily listen to other books that she has narrated
Yes! I listened to it over the course of 2 days and was enjoying it so much that I didnt want to stop.
A great little book, a little predicatable, but hey - it was worth the listen. It's not usually my genre either, but I have to say I would happily listen to books by this author again.
Great little read - because it made me smile :-)
"Thoroughly enjoyable read"
In the Chick Lit stakes this is one of the good ones.
I enjoyed the way that the author kept the story moving the whole time and how, right to the end, you were left wondering how it would end.
I haven't but I think she enacts each character superbly.
When Isabel decides she is not going to tell her family that she is dying of cancer so that they can enjoy one last Christmas and New Year together without the cloud of knowing hanging over them.
Thoroughly enjoyable characters and it was nice to get "into" the story from the beginning. A recommended read for anyone who enjoys a good story.
I wonderful story of love and heartache, beautifully told.
Unputdownable, gripping, intense involving several stories with one location bringing them together.
A lovely written book with some interesting plots!!
A very good listen and would recommend. Better than described.
"The Long Weekend"
It transported me to the English sea side town and Hotel lived it
"Wonderful escape to the sea."
Yes a lovely love story
All of it, a roller coaster of emotions without being soppy
Whats a tag line?
"Got me from the first moment"
I enjoyed every moment of it, good story nice characters, well read great story
Don't want to miss a thing, Jo Jo Moyles, I suppose because of the style of the writing.
Oh my goodness there were too many, I could imagine all of the scenes, I loved the ones describing the English seaside
Never give up hope. What will be will be. A match made in heaven, need I go one?
I have never read anything by Veronica Henry before but will be doing in the future.
