(1 customer review)

£12.99

Jodie Jackson is all at sea, in every sense. On a ferry bound for the Isle of Wight, she’s leaving her London life, her career, and her husband behind. She’d like a chance to turn back the clocks, but she’ll settle for some peace and quiet on her brother Bill’s beautifully renovated houseboat, Sunny Days.

But from the moment Jodie steps aboard her new home, it’s clear she’ll struggle to keep herself to herself. If it isn’t Marilyn, who cleans for Bill and is under strict instructions to look after Jodie, then it’s Ned, the noisy sculptor on the next-door houseboat. Ned’s wood carving is hard on the ears, but it’s made up for by the fact that he’s rather easy on the eyes.

Bustled out of the boat by Marilyn and encouraged to explore with Ned, Jodie soon delights in her newfound freedom. But out of mind isn’t out of sight, and when her old life comes knocking Jodie is forced to face reality. Will she answer the call or choose a life filled with Sunny Days and Sea Breezes?

  1. Karen Kingston

    This is a great book to escape into. The world is currently full of anxiety inducing news and events, and this story was a good distraction. The majority of the story is set in the Isle of Wight, which is where Jodie has escaped to, leaving behind her work and the husband she believes is cheating on her.

    Jodie is looking for peace and quiet, time to heal from the events of the past year. However she finds a group of people on the Isle of Wight who encourage her to start to live again. My favourite characters were Marilyn and George, who both made me smile every time they appeared in the story.

    My favourite scene is towards the end of the book on one of Jodie’s visits to the gym. This is a no spoiler review so I won’t divulge why this made me laugh out loud.

    I enjoyed my virtual visit to the Isle of Wight, the book is full of great characters and an enjoyable read.
