Publisher's Summary

A beautiful Cornish setting, a chaotic family, a woman who's had enough of romance - or has she? Not to be missed by listeners of Katie Fforde and Millie Johnson.   

The trouble with secrets is that you can't guess what the consequences will be....

Lainey has just lost everything. Luckily one little fib (OK, quite a big fib) helps nail her dream job. Soon she's living in a stunning house by the sea, fending off obsessed fans for a retired - if far-from-retiring - actor and organising his charming but chaotic family. Yes, everyone thinks she's part of a couple, and it's tricky keeping this secret. But at least she's not looking for love: with her disastrous relationship history, men are definitely off the agenda.

Except Seth, the actor's grandson, really is very attractive. There's growing chemistry and a definite connection between them. What would happen if he knew the truth?  

But Lainey's not the only one with a secret - it seems everyone has them! And they're all about to start unravelling....

Narration was pretty bad

The narrator at parts sounded like she was trying to win a time trial! Some parts better than others but took away from the enjoyment

Fabulous!

Oh this book delivers everything! , you invest and love the characters, all with such different personalities and stories, but you really want to be part of the mad family.

The story goes along very well, and there are some giggles along the way (Specially the guitar player!)

Narration is fabulous - there is NO reason why you should not purchase this book!!
