First, here’s more about High Tide:
Publisher: Orion (24 Sept. 2015)
Pennfleet might be a small town, but there’s never a dull moment in its narrow winding streets …
Kate has only planned a flying visit to clear out the family home after the death of her mother. When she finds an anonymous letter, she is drawn back into her own past.
Single dad Sam is juggling his deli and two lively teenagers, so romance is the last thing on his mind. Then Cupid fires an unexpected arrow – but what will his children think?
Nathan Fisher is happy with his lot, running picnic cruises up and down the river, but kissing the widow of the richest man in Pennfleet has disastrous consequences.
Vanessa knows what she has done is unseemly for a widow, but it’s the most fun she’s had for years. Must she always be on her best behaviour?
As autumn draws in and the nights grow longer, there are sure to be fireworks in this gloriously engaging novel from Veronica Henry, author of A Night on the Orient Express.
High Tide is Veronica Henry’s thirteenth novel.
5 The Moonbeam
Like Kate, Nathan is Pennfleet born and bred, but he has never left the town. He had an opportunity once, but he turned it down. He loves Pennfleet, and everything it has to offer, and he is quite content there. He has used his heritage to share the town with visitors. The Moonbeam is his grandfather’s boat, which the pair of them have restored, and Nathan runs picnic cruises up and down the river. He has his fingers in lots of other pies too – he knows everyone and everyone knows him. At the beginning of the book, Nathan’s border terrier has a litter of mongrel puppies, and we get to meet their new owners and see some ensuing chaos! I loved the idea of exploring a character who was firmly entrenched in small town life. Very often the grass seems greener on the other side, but Nathan is happy with his lot. All of this is turned upside down, however, when he has an encounter with Vanessa, the widow of the richest man in town. Will this encounter take him to pastures new?
What do you think? I can’t wait to start reading!
