There’s no place like home…
Enough is enough! The always perfect Laurie Chapman had jumped in her car and raced as fast as she could from London heading to Sunset Bay and (she hopes!) the open arms of her estranged sister…
Mia Chapman loves running Dolly’s Diner in the picture-perfect coastal Cornish town of Sunset Bay. Now that her and Grandma Dolly’s dream is finally a reality Mia has never been prouder! Until Laurie suddenly turns up on her doorstep… How can she forgive the sister who walked away?
Once upon a time Mia and Laurie were best friends. Back together after so long, the time has come for the sisters to figure out what went so wrong all those years ago – and whether they can ever put it right!
Rebecca Pugh’s second novel is almost as sweet as she is.
Highly descriptive, running along the beach with Mia warmed me as if I was pacing beside her. I also felt that I had put on a few pounds just reading about the Cornish pasties and other delicious food delights in Dolly’s Diner.
Mia inherits Dolly’s after her Grandmother dies, and it’s here the tale is set. In the beautiful and one of my favorite places in the world, Cornwall, we learn about family. Laurie and Mia haven’t spoken for a while and after catching her fella with another woman, a friends death and a job she’s not happy with, Laurie sets off to be comforted by her sister.
Rebuilding relationships,budding romances and friendship makes this the ideal summer read. With influences of, I suspect of Liz Fenwick and Jenny Hale, Rebecca has done a marvellous job with this beautiful story. This is so much better than her first. It is very warm and refreshing.
As Rebecca knows, chick-lit and romance are not my usual reads, so for me to speak highly of this book is in itself a recommendation. It really is a charming read.
A ‘bookalicious’ delight.
