    Nell Stockdale is juggling single-motherhood, a busy career and a fling with a sexy younger man when the call comes to return to the childhood home, Tredower, in Cornwall to look after her mother for the summer. Resistance is futile, especially after she is made redundant, so Nell heads off to deepest, rural Cornwall with daughter Cass in tow. Not only has Nell to contend with Cornish weather and her mother's barbed comments, she has to cope with the imminent visit from her older brother, his pe [...]

    This is a lightweight summery story, about a woman who goes back to Cornwall for the summer to look after her aged Mum. Nell is a single mother who's always been very career focused. Nor is she terribly close to her family - brother Ethan and sister Heather (who is engaged to Nell's ex boyfriend). But there's a lot of change for all of them in store, as secrets come unravelled and priorities change over the summer.I really liked the way that the book made me feel like I was hanging out in Cornwa [...]

    I really liked this. There was more to it than your usual chick lit and it made Cornwall sound like a fabulous place to visit. The male characters were great, the family was complex enough without sighing at the outrageousness of it all (which can happen alot with commerical fiction) an easy enjoyable read.

    Story: follows the life of Nell, whose boyfriend (Jeremy) suddenly decides to marry her sister-Heather and whose brother Ethan, is quite the addict and her mom believes that she should quit her job and finally get married because she is not young.I loved: Nell, of course she is the heroine, but how she deals with her sister's new life, and being a single mom and always hoping to get over the fact that the man she loved married her sister- makes this book worth reading.I was amazed: at how much i [...]

    After a slow start, I really enjoyed this. It's the story of a typically dysfunctional family, where the elderly matriarch is taken ill and one of the three adult children needs to go stay in Cornwall over the summer. Because of circumstances, Nell, with her daughter Cass, gets the 'short straw' over siblings Ethan and Heather and begrudgingly travels down from London. Sister Heather is now engaged to Jeremy, Nell's former love, while Ethan's wife Janet is seemingly perfect and clearly has her e [...]

    A lovely read,though I felt the author was abit harsh on Nell. What ticked me off was when her ex Jeremy, started dating her sister Heather. I mean didn't she ever hear of "the code"? That's betrayal of the highest degree. Jeremy to me was so daring, how do you move from one sister to another? For him to even admit that he wanted Nell back, had me shocked. Anyway I loved the scenery of Cornwall and the beach, and handsome surfer dude Michael. He was such a delight. And the secrets revealed and h [...]

    This is the first Polly Williams book I have read and although I did enjoy it I found it abit slow possibly an ideal holiday/beach read. I started really getting into it and finding myself struggling to put it down in the last quarter of the book. Which disappointed me because the general story was really good. I loved the main characters and was routing for certain couples and routing for others to be found out! I will definitely be trying another Polly Williams book.

    This is a nice and easy read, with quite interesting characters and pleasant dialogue. I enjoyed reading about Nell's personal struggles but the part where the book turns into a mystery, I found a bit blah. Overall, a very nice "female" kind of book that I didn't really want to put down. Polly Williams writes in a very pleasant way, even if I wasn't thrilled with the story itself.

    I needed a good 'light' read and this fitted the bill. I enjoyed the family secrets and the tangled relationships of the family and that the plot bowled along. I didn't enjoy the name dropping for clothes and household goods. I think that it's lazy writing in all honesty.A good summer romance read.

    A really lovely sweet story about family, relationships & love. Kind of knew from the off where it was going but still enjoyed the journey. The characters are well rounded & real, not too perfect or far fetched. A really good read for 'chick lit' fans.

    I really enjoyed this delightful story. It was an easy read that drew me into it really quickly. The characters were likeable though I would have liked to know more about them. This is the first book I have read by this author I will look out for more in future.

    Despite it's slow start I absolutely loved this book. Loved all the characters and the twists and turns in the plot - funny and sad all at the same time and I had n idea which way the story would turn next. Highly recommended.

    I loved thisloved the descriptions of the area as have holidayed in Cornwall many a time and could really imagine the coves/cafes etc she described.I enjoyed the twist in the tale as well and how April linked in too.A great read and look forward to some more please!

    I love reading Polly Williams' books, they are just absolutely lovey . . . and that really is the only way to describe them. The characters are so wonderful, the setting is perfect and the storylines leave me with a smile on my face right up to the end. And this book is no exception.Loved it.

    I'm glad I didn't gave up in the first few chapters. A nice book and I like it minus the boring section at the first 6 chapters.

    a little long winded/confusing in the middle with the sudden introduction of new characters in a totally separate manner.

    It moved really slowly, and didn't grab me. I really only finished it because I wanted to see how it ended up.
