When Rosa and Bee get together in the run-up to Bee’s wedding, they reminisce about the holiday they took together as teenagers to the beautiful Greek island of Paros. They remember the sandy coves, the guest house in the converted windmill where they stayed with their friend Iona, and the gorgeous local men. As memories of that long-forgotten holiday resurface, they are forced to confront the turns their lives have taken – and the guilt they both feel about letting Iona slip away from them.
When they learn that the windmill guest house is going bust they form a plan: why not go back to the island and take it over themselves? And so begins a life-changing journey – because it turns out that opening a guest house and reliving their teenage dreams isn’t that easy . . .
Full of romance and friendship, love and life, laughter and tears, The Beachside Guest House is an uplifting novel about the magic of starting over with friends by your side.
I have finally finished this book ,not for lack of wanting to read it …but kids new puppy exhaustion lol
As to be expected this is yet another beauty of a read by this fantastic author .
This however was quite a poignant read for me as I have been in Iona’s shoes and reading it was like reading a diary . How did Vanessa manage to write this so accurately?
Sorry I didn’t like the ending as in I wanted more!
A great read about friendships ,love and new beginnings 🙂
I love the design of all of her book covers and have thoroughly enjoyed every read .
