Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
This is chick lit to appeal to a wide age range. This is not just about twenty or thirty-somethings but ranges across the love lives of teenagers to pensioners. A great read for the beach (says something in the title), you'll sail through it. It's not howl with laughter chick lit but it is has pace and interesting characters with interesting snippets of their lives to keep it going plus a seaside setting. What's more to like than a bit of sun, sand, sea, surf and a row of brightly coloured beach huts - I want one! No seaside town is complete without a hotel, pub, restaurant or ice cream stall and that essential ingredient children.<br/>

Any additional comments?
All Veronica Henry's books are feel good, happy reads
This audiobook is beautifully read by Julia Franklin - she voices all the characters perfectly and really brings this story alive. Unfortunately, I did not particularly like any of the characters and lost interest in their lives. I do feel that a perfect 'chick lit' novel should completely engross you in the story and lives of the characters so that you feel a real sense of loss when you have finished listening or reading (listen to Erica James 'the Hidden Cottage' for a perfect example!). This was not the case with this book, the characters lacked depth and I also felt that Veronica Henry failed to portray a convincing picture of the coastal setting. I never really felt like I was there by the sea, or in the characters lives.

If you could sum up The Beach Hut in three words, what would they be?
Funny, light hearted, compelling
Who was your favorite character and why?
I couldn't name just one, as there are multiple characters all interlinked. I really liked hearing about all the different characters and their points of view on life, family and experiences. I thought it was clever how she put everything together.
Have you listened to any of Julia Franklin’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No I havn't, but I enjoyed this performance.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Overall I enjoyed the book, it was compelling, I couldn't stop listening.
