Publisher's Summary

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.

Light listen

I found the storyline very light. Nearly gave up at the beginning. If you are after a light storyline it is ok.

Ending Sucks!

It just ended! Really? overall I enjoyed the story, one story line took forever to play out (and you know what's going to happen). Other than that it's just an easy listen.
