What caught my eye most about this book was the lovely cover that seemed to scream enigma and girly friendship - adventure to me. For the most part, I was right, particularly in the girly friendship -adventure prognosis.
Set in the seaside town of Brighton, England, the book follows three initially down-on-their-luck ladies who have all moved to the same apartment block at Dukes Square over the course of the past few months. Georgie, a twenty something resident of Stonefield who is confident and exuberant in nature follows her boyfriend to the town when he gets a 6-month architecture contract there. Charlotte, sombre divorcee who harbours the scars of a terrible trauma that has kept her completely anti-social and finally, Rosa, who upon finding out the man she loves was living a double life, promptly quit her high-flying job in advertising and moved to Brighton to become part of the minimum wage kitchen staff at the Hotel Zanzibar
A lightly written peace, I very aptly read this with a spectacular sea view in site. Great for an easy read where minimum mental taxation is desired and the expectation of a happy ending is guaranteed.
