Summary

April Statham had it all - until her husband left her for a blonde 10 years her junior. Now she’s 35, 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!

Disappointed

Couldn't listen because of narrator. Not sure why audible don't employ proper actors to read their books. The story itself was not one that instantly grabbed me either, so sorry.

Disappointing

Kitty Kellys voice for the character April was un pleasant and far too many unecessary accents with all the characters she just needed to read the story, difficult to listen too. Sadly the story was disjointed, dragged out and boreing.
