The latest wonderfully witty novel from Britain’s favourite TV presenter, Fern Britton.
Two sisters. One House. The holiday of a lifetime…
Set on a Cornish cliff, Atlantic House has been the jewel in the Carew family crown for centuries. Each year, the Carew sisters embark on the yearly summer holiday, but they are as different as vinegar and honey.
Prudence, hard-nosed businesswoman married to the meek and mild Francis, is about to get a shock reminder that you should never take anything for granted.
Constance, loving wife to philandering husband Greg, has always been outwitted by her manipulative sibling. Suspecting that Pru wants to get her hands on Atlantic House, Connie won’t take things lying down.

Review by Alison

This was a super read. It was one of those books that you could pick up and put down but can still easily follow. It is a delightful tale of two sisters and a secret which is revealed - the past cannot be left alone and the revelation sends them over the edge. I can't say any more without giving too much away!
There is a great mix of characters and the details of the places are very real and creates images of a wonderful holiday home to revisit it year on year. 
There is a twist in the story which is a little saddening for the reader but it is clear to see why it was written in this way.
Definitely one to add to your bookshelf for a light hearted read. I rate this book a Novel Cafe chocolate brownie - everybody loves them, 8/10.
