Love is in the air in St Carys, but you’d never know it – the people of this seaside town are very good at keeping secrets…
The man Clemency loves belongs to someone else. She has to hide her true feelings – but when she ropes in an unsuspecting friend to help, wires start to get crossed.
For the first time in Ronan’s life his charm has failed him in winning over the woman he wants. Loving her from afar appears to be his only option.
Belle seems to have the perfect boyfriend, but something isn’t quite right. And now a long-buried secret is slowly rising to the surface.
The truth has a funny way of revealing itself, and when it does St Carys will be a very different place indeed…
Captivating, warm, lighthearted and funny!
This is an engaging, romantic story that reminds us that sometimes things happen for a reason and happy ever afters really do exist.
The prose is polished and beautifully descriptive. The setting is charming and quaint. The characters are sweet, lovable and real. And the plot is a wonderful mix of humour, heart, emotion and courage.
This is, ultimately, a story about life, love, loss, heartbreak, family, acceptance, happiness and discovering one’s true self, and once again Mansell has proven when in comes to writing moving, heartfelt stories with characters you can’t help but fall in love with she’s one of the best!
