Pennfleet might be a small town, but there’s never a dull moment in its narrow winding streets …
Kate has only planned a flying visit to clear out the family home after the death of her mother. When she finds an anonymous letter, she is drawn back into her own past.
Single dad Sam is juggling his deli and two lively teenagers, so romance is the last thing on his mind. Then Cupid fires an unexpected arrow – but what will his children think?
Nathan Fisher is happy with his lot, running picnic cruises up and down the river, but kissing the widow of the richest man in Pennfleet has disastrous consequences.
Vanessa knows what she has done is unseemly for a widow, but it’s the most fun she’s had for years. Must she always be on her best behaviour?
As autumn draws in and the nights grow longer, there are sure to be fireworks in this gloriously engaging novel from Veronica Henry, author of A Night on the Orient Express.
I’ve read and enjoyed quite a few of this authors books now and High Tide is another one to add to the list.
The setting for this book is very picturesque and is a place I for one would love to live.
Pennfleet is one of those small towns where everyone knows everyone and your business is pretty much everyone else’s also.
There are four main characters in the story who are all very different, yet each character I found very appealing and I couldn’t wait to read more.
High Tide is one of those books that the reader just looses all sense of time and reality and surrenders themselves to the story and to the authors mercy.
From starting the book I just couldn’t put it down. Each character fascinated me and I wanted to learn more about them and see what fate, life had in store for them. The story really flowed well, flicking back and forth between each character and teasing the reader so that even though you wanted to read about another character you couldn’t wait to get back to the one you had just read about.
This is a really lovely story which I think has been left wide open for a sequel, though that might be just wishful thinking on my part as would love to meet up with these characters again.
