“I absolutely loved this book… This has been the escape read I have been looking for.” 5 Stars, Netgalley reviewer
April Statham had it all – until her husband left her for a blonde ten years her junior. Now she’s thirty-five, single, and starting again. So she does what anyone in her position would do: she impulsively invests her life savings in the chalet park she used to visit as a child, on the beautiful Cornish Coast.
The Shady Pines Chalet Park is… ramshackle. But it has one big advantage – it is as far as physically possible from April’s ex, his new fiancée, and her old life. With gorgeous handyman Cillian O’Leary, April is looking forward to the challenge.
As visitors arrive, April realises that Shady Pines isn’t just a second chance for her, it gives Cillian another shot at happiness too.
But when he moves into the chalet next door, April’s painful past starts to catch up with her, and she struggles to reconcile her feelings for Cillian.
Is April’s new beginning destined to end in failure – or will she find new friends, a new life and new love at her second chance hotel?
Fans of Jenny Colgan, Emma Davies and Debbie Johnson will love Rachel Dove!

Love reading abt love
Absolutely loved this book. It is a real feel good story. I felt so happy at the end. It’s about life’s throwing things at you, and you triumphing over your fears, to let love in.
