Publisher's Summary

The Beach Hut follows the stories of the families who come to Everdene each year, people who fall in – or out – of love, remembering their pasts, or trying to forget them…There’s Jane Milton, left only debts by her husband, and forced to sell the beloved beach hut that holds so many happy memories; Sarah; for whom fidelity has lost its appeal; and Harry, suffering from the anguish of first love when he falls for Florence – who has grown up to be far more alluring than she ever used to be.

Beautifully read

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.

Another good story from Veronica Henry

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.
