Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A village on the North Devon coast with two hotels, one large and old, the other being planned as an exclusive luxury establishment by two new infiltrators. With lots of cross fertilisation, high jinks and raunchy humour, this is a charmer. Those who know her Honeycote tales will find a whole new set of characters; those new to her have a smashing backlist to devour. She’s great.

Comparison: Jilly Cooper, Victoria Clayton, Christina Jones.

Synopsis

Love on the Rocks by Veronica Henry

Bruno Thorne is the self-crowned king of Mariscombe, a faded seaside resort crammed with chip shops and amusement arcades. But things are on the turn because the resort has been picked as a potential holiday hot-spot. Meanwhile, George Law wants to do for Mariscombe what Rick Stein did for Padstowe (even though he's not entirely sure what to do with a red mullet) and, thanks to a last minute cock-up by the estate agent, outbids Bruno for the rundown Rocks hotel.

At last he can realise his dream and, with his gorgeous ex-lingerie model girlfriend Lisa at his side, surely nothing can hold him back... But George hasn't counted on disgruntled locals, infuriating ex-wives... or Bruno Thorne's apparent interest in Lisa. With another splash hit on her hands, bestselling novelist Veronica Henry moves to the seaside and delivers the perfect holiday read.
