You will love this heartwarming, witty novel fromSunday Times best-seller, Fern Britton. The perfect Cornish Escape!

Two sisters. One House. The holiday of a lifetime…

Set on a Cornish cliff, Atlantic House has been the jewel in the Carew family crown for centuries. Each year, the Carew sisters embark on the yearly summer holiday, but they are as different as vinegar and honey.

Prudence, hard-nosed businesswoman married to the meek and mild Francis, is about to get a shock reminder that you should never take anything for granted.

Constance, loving wife to philandering husband Greg, has always been outwitted by her manipulative sibling. Suspecting that Pru wants to get her hands on Atlantic House, Connie won’t take things lying down.

When an old face reappears on the scene, years of simmering resentments reach boiling point. Little do the women know that a long-buried secret is about to bite them all on the bottom.
Is this one holiday that will push them all over the edge, or can Constance and Pru leave the past where it belongs?

A really good holiday read, with a twist in the tail that you kind of guess at some point before the end - but it doesn't spoil it.
Hidden talents Fern - a lovely tale, I look forward to reading your other titles on future holidays.
