Jill’s Mansell’s heart-warming new book is the feel-good novel of 2020. A beautiful Cornish setting, a chaotic family, a woman who’s had enough of romance – or has she? Not to be missed by readers of Katie Fforde and Millie Johnson.
The trouble with secrets is that you can’t guess what the consequences will be . . .
Lainey has just lost everything. Luckily one little fib (OK, quite a big fib) helps nail her dream job. Soon she’s living in a stunning house by the sea, fending off obsessed fans for a retired – if far-from-retiring – actor and organising his charming but chaotic family. Yes, everyone thinks she’s part of a couple and it’s tricky keeping this secret. But at least she’s not looking for love: with her disastrous relationship history, men are definitely off the agenda.
Except Seth, the actor’s grandson, really is very attractive. There’s growing chemistry and a definite connection between them. What would happen if he knew the truth?
But Lainey’s not the only one with a secret – it seems everyone has them! And they’re all about to start unravelling…
