In a gorgeous quay-side hotel in Cornwall, the long weekend is just beginning ...Claire Marlowe owns 'The Townhouse by the Sea' with Luca, the hotel's charismatic chef. She ensures everything runs smoothly - until an unexpected arrival checks in and turns her whole world upside down. And the rest of the guests arrive with their own baggage. There's a couple looking for distraction from a family tragedy; a man trying to make amends for an affair he bitterly regrets ...and the young woman who thinks the Cornish village might hold the key to her past.
