Funny, realistic and full of insight. I couldn’t put it down. – Katie Fforde, author
Three women, one bar and three different reasons for buying it. Single mother Sarah needs a home for her children; Claire’s an ambitious business woman. For wealthy Gaynor, Greens Wine Bar is just one more amusement. Or is it?
On the surface, Gaynor has it all – money, looks, a beautiful home in the picturesque seaside town of Broadstairs, and Victor – her generous, successful husband.
But while Sarah longs for love and Claire is making money, Gaynor wants answers. Why is Victor behaving strangely and who does he see on his frequent trips away? What’s behind the threatening phone-calls?
As the bar takes off, Gaynor’s life starts to fall apart. Into her turmoil comes Sam – strong and silent with a hidden past. Theirs is an unlikely friendship but then nobody is quite what they seem in this tale of love, loss and betrayal set against the middle-class dream of owning a wine bar. As Gaynor’s confusion grows, events unfold that will change all of their lives forever…
Delightfully sparkling, like champagne, with the deep undertones of a fine claret.
