Sometimes the hardest person to save is yourself…
Marie Johnson fell in love with The Smugglers pub when she first moved to Dorset with her husband, Stephen.
But when Stephen’s wandering eye caused the breakdown of their marriage, and the costs of running the pub started to mount, Marie felt her dreams crashing down around her.
With local celebrations planned for the 60th anniversary of D-Day, Marie is hopeful things will turn around.
But she could never have predicted the ways her life will soon be changed forever.
A charming American soldier walks into Marie’s life, but it becomes clear nothing is really as it seems…
Why is Marie suddenly plagued by headaches? Is her American soldier everything he seems to be?
Or could the D-Day re-enactments be stirring up something from the past…?
A Thoroughly Good Read!
A thoroughly good read from an author new to me, but one I shall follow with interest from here on in!
Marie Johnson lives over the coastal pub she works in along with her estranged husband Stephen; his affairs having sounded time on their marriage. Marie and their son Jude are pitted against Stephen in daily battles over the running of the business. With celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of D-Day forthcoming, Marie looks forward to some light relief.
This is a very busy book with lots going on, several story threads to follow and I loved everything about it! It’s extremely well-plotted, written in an easy, flowing style and kept me glued to my kindle throughout. There are plenty of surprises along the way and nothing is predictable. With wonderfully created characters, a strong plot, a gorgeous setting and even a bit of mystery along with a touch of romance (and, I have to mention, a very appealing dog) this one ticked all the boxes for me. I couldn’t find fault even if I wanted to – and I don’t! A truly lovely read, and one which rewards the reader with a sigh of satisfaction as everything is beautifully wrapped up in the last few pages. A fabulous read, thoroughly enjoyed and definitely recommended. Try it and see! Totally worth all five stars.
