Book Review: The Beach Hut - Veronica Henry
There's Jane Milton, left only debts by her husband, and forced to sell the beloved beach hut that holds so many happy memories; Sarah, for whom fidelity has lost its appeal; and Harry, suffering from the anguish of first love when he falls for Florence - who has grown up to be far more alluring than she ever used to be.
Review - This is chick lit to appeal to a wide age range. This is not just about twenty or thirty-somethings but ranges across the love lives of teenagers to pensioners. A great read for the beach (says something in the title), you'll sail through it. It's not howl with laughter chick lit but it is has pace and interesting characters with interesting snippets of their lives to keep it going plus a seaside setting. What's more to like than a bit of sun, sand, sea, surf and a row of brightly coloured beach huts - I want one! No seaside town is complete without a hotel, pub, restaurant or ice cream stall and that essential ingredient children. A good light summer read. 3*
