Sometimes old flames burn the brightest . . .
‘A wonderfully uplifting story about a woman on her way to fulfilment’ KATIE FFORDE 'A sparklingly attractive novel written with humour, brio and a refreshing unsentimentality' ELIZABETH BUCHAN Jillian Hunter treasures her independence. She’s raised two sons by herself, launched a small business, and restored a tumbledown beach cottage in Connecticut. But when a trip to London reunites her with Colin – an old flame she hasn’t seen in thirty-five years – Jill falls for him all over again. Love makes Jill reckless. This could be her chance for a new beginning. But Colin isn’t quite the boy she remembers and she ends up risking everything she’s worked for – her business, her home, and her two closest friends – to make a life with him. And when she’s faced with the risk of losing Colin as well, Jill is forced to take an uncomfortably close look at the woman she’s allowed herself to become. Funny, sophisticated, and wise, ‘Beachcombing’ is a coming-of-middle-age story about girlfriends when you’re no longer a girl, about growing up when you’re already grown up, and the price you’re willing to pay for the love of your life.
