What you need to know before your trail

In the idyllic seaside town of St Carys, Sophie is putting the past firmly behind her.

When Josh arrives in St Carys to run the family hotel, he can’t understand why Sophie has zero interest in letting any man into her life. He also can’t understand how he’s been duped into employing Sophie’s impulsive friend Tula, whose crush on him is decidedly unrequited.

St Carys has more than its fair share of characters, including the charming but utterly feckless surfer Riley Bryant, who has a massive crush on Tula. Riley’s aunt is superstar author Marguerite Marshall. And Marguerite has designs on Josh’s grandfather…who in turn still adores his glamorous ex-wife, Dot…

Travel Guide

St Carys

The author created St Carys for this novel and it’s  a setting that’s very Jill Mansell in many ways. It’s fresh, full of life and warm so you just love spending time here.

You won’t find it on any map but that’s the beauty of it – it represents everything about the towns and villages of Cornwall that the author loves so much. She’s given it a gorgeous hotel, an esplanade, quirky shops, bars and restaurants and a fabulous surfing beach.

Her inspiration for the town is St Ives, since this is the place she often holidays in and so knows well.
