But when Evie discovers a secret that threatens their future, a shadow falls over them all: this summer by the river could be their last together...For Charlie, a visit home to see stepmother Evie is an escape from his unhappy marriage in London. Until a chance encounter changes everything: in the space of a moment, he meets a woman by the river, falls in love, and his two worlds collide.

A good summer read. The setting is so well described I could see myself walking beside the various characters as they enjoyed their lives in Dartmouth. In fact I recently did walk along those very streets and lanes, and looked out on the river.

The book is well paced, and the stories of each character were well rounded, and interacted in a believable way. It doesn't tax the brain very much, but then summer reading isn't always about learning so much as enjoying a relaxing read.
