Publisher Description

‘A wonderfully warm and witty novel from one of our favourite women’s fiction stars. We defy you not to love this’ Heat

The charming new bestseller from the No.1 bestselling author of The Canal Boat Cafe

Robin Brennan has come home to Campion Bay. Now her parents have retired, she’s set to become the new landlady of The Campion Bay Guesthouse.
Bookings have been as thin as the hand towels, and it doesn’t take long for Robin to realise that the place needs a serious makeover. Perhaps throwing herself into the task will help to heal her sadness at the tragic end to her dreams in London.
As she gives the guesthouse a new lease of life, Robin encounters old friends and new, including old flame Tim, who’d clearly like to reboot their romance. But what about Will, the new arrival at No. 4, who’s rocked up with the cutest dog ever?
Caught up in a flurry of full-English breakfasts and cream teas, Robin’s never sure what, or who, the next check-in will bring…

About the author

Cressy was born in South East London surrounded by books and with a cat named after Lawrence of Arabia. She studied English at the University of East Anglia and now lives in Norwich with her husband David.
Cressy’s favourite things include terrifying ghost stories, lava lamps and romantic heroes, though not necessarily at the same time. She doesn’t (yet) have a dog of her own, but feeds her love vicariously through friends’ pets, and was once chased around a field by a soaking wet, very mischievous Border Collie called Wags.
When she isn’t writing, Cressy spends her spare time reading, returning to London or exploring the beautiful Norfolk coastline.

A Lovely Warm Read - Five Full Sunny Stars from Me!

What a wonderful, packed read! At 500 pages long this is a full and enjoyable novel, and one which I have relished reading. I suspect that British seaside holidays may be doing a roaring trade this year thanks to the authors like Cressida McLaughlin who are writing such fabulously appealing stories!

Robin Brennan returns to her home town of Campion Bay to the loving arms of her parents. Why? Read the book! There is never a dull moment between the pages what with family, friendships - old and new - relationships (again, old and new) and the terrific scenic view, so well described that you can almost fool yourself into smelling the salty sea breeze!

This is a lovely, warm read - perfect as a holiday / beach read and one which I urge you to choose as it will leave you, as you will leave it, with a sigh of complete and total satisfaction. A full five sunny stars from me.

I recieved an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
