Publisher's Summary

Grace has been best friends with Ella and Flick forever. The late-night chats, shared heartaches, and good times have created a bond that has stood the test of time. When Ella invites them to stay for a week in her cottage in South Wales, Grace jumps at the chance to see her old friends.
She also hopes that the change of scenery will help her reconnect with her distant husband. Then Flick arrives; loveable, bubbly, incorrigible Flick, accompanied by the handsome and charming Noah. This is going to be one week which will change all their lives forever... Join Grace, Ella, and Flick for a week of love, laughter, tears and friendship in A Cottage by the Sea.

I really liked this story. I hadnt read a Carole Matthew's book before but gave it a go from the reveiws and they were correct. It was so enjoyable.

3 couples spend a short break in a Cottage by the Sea. Sounds typical but the charaters where written so well and so interesting. I found myself looking forward to the next day when i could resume the story-line.

Sometimes there are just too many names, people, events going on but this story was so easy to listen to and understand. I'll be trying another one of Carole Matthew's books.

Great story

I really enjoyed this book. I always like books about the coast and seaside. This was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed all the characters. I was also very well read. I have read others from this author and was not disappointed in this one.

Fantastic chick lit

After 4 years of listening to mostly crime fiction I have entered a chick lit phase and I am loving it! I downloaded this as, after some great breaks by the sea this summer I was longing to be by the coast! This novel really did transport me to the Pembrokeshire coast and I became completely drawn into the lives of Grace and her friends. Yes there are lots of chick lit cliches but if you ignore these it's an enjoyable, escapist story. As ever Clare Corbett narrates beautifully but I wasn't convinced by the male characters accents!
