The Secrets of Sunshine

by Phaedra Patrick

The Secrets of Sunshine Synopsis

'A wonderfully hope-filled story' Sarah Haywood, bestselling author 'This charming novel will warm your heart' The People's Friend 'The perfect summer read!' Suzy K Quinn, bestselling author *** A lonely single father gets an unexpected second chance at love in the heart-warming new novel from the bestselling author of The Library of Lost and Found. Only his daughter Poppy knows that behind his prickly exterior, Mitchell Fisher is deeply lonely. He may have sworn off romance, relishing his job cutting off the padlocks that couples fasten to his hometown's famous 'love story' bridge... but underneath it all, he's still grieving the loss of Poppy's mum. Then one hot summer's day, everything changes when Mitchell bravely rescues a woman who falls from the bridge into the river. He's surprised to feel an unexpected connection to her, but then she disappears. Desperate to find the mysterious woman, Mitchell teams up with her spirited sister Liza to see if she's left any clues behind. There's just one - a secret message on the padlock she left on love story bridge... Brimming with Phaedra Patrick's signature charm and a sparkling cast of characters, The Secrets of Sunshine follows one man's journey to unlock his heart and discover new beginnings in the unlikeliest places. *** Readers love The Secrets of Sunshine: 'This book was everything!!!! I absolutely LOVED it!!' 'A sensational read... took me on an emotional rollercoaster' 'Absolutely charming' 'The story was so captivating it made you not want it to end. I love it!' 'A delightful feel-good story that can't help but make you smile' 'Loved this book from start to finish' 'Charming and soothing, and a real feel-good read' 'A sweet and touching book with likeable characters and a happy ending. Perfect for a dreary day' 'A warm-hearted tale' 'This is a gem of a book, quirky and amusing but sad and heartfelt at the same time' 'A lovely story of bravery, loving and letting go, finding new love, and the love between father and daughter'
