Summer is on the horizon, and the people of Porthmellow are eagerly awaiting the yearly food festival. No less than, most of them are…
For Sam Lovell, organising the summer festival in her hometown is among the highlights of her year. It’s not all the time smooth sailing, but she loves to see Porthmellow’s harbour packed with happy visitors, and being on the committee has provided a much-needed distraction from the drama in her family life (and the distinct lack of it in her love life).
When their star guest pulls out with only some weeks to go, everyone’s delighted when a London chef who grew up locally steps in at the last minute. But Gabe Matthias is the last person Sam was once expecting to see, and his return to Porthmellow will change her quiet coastal life for ever.
Curl up with this gorgeous novel and savour the world of Porthmellow Harbour.
