In The Post Today

Beachcombing by Maggie Dana
Genre: Fiction
Published by Macmillan New Writing (2009)
Paperback: 340

Synopsis (from Amazon):

Jillian Hunter treasures her independence. She s raised two sons by herself, launched a small business, and restored a tumbledown beach cottage in Connecticut. But when a trip to London reunites her with Colin an old flame she hasn t seen in thirty-five years Jill falls for him all over again. Love makes Jill reckless. This could be her chance for a new beginning. But Colin isn t quite the boy she remembers and she ends up risking everything she s worked for her business, her home, and her two closest friends to make a life with him. And when she s faced with the risk of losing Colin as well, Jill is forced to take an uncomfortably close look at the woman she s allowed herself to become.

Funny, sophisticated, and wise, Beachcombing is a coming-of-middle-age story about girlfriends when you re no longer a girl, about growing up when you re already grown up, and the price you're willing to pay for the love of your life.

This looks like a good summer read and I just love the colourful book cover.

    It's lovely to see my cover up there, and good to know it arrived safe and sound. Now all we need is a bit of summer weather to go with it. I'm in Connecticut and spring has only shown up for a day here and there, which means it'll probably bypass us altogether and we'll be plunged directly into a searing hot summer. Must go and find bathing suit, bucket and spade!


  2. Hi Maggie, if you came to England today you wouldn't need a bucket and spade - you'd need a canoe! Rain, rain, rain.
    I Hope all goes well for the launch in June.

  3. Am thinking of an ark. I could turn in my airline ticket and sail over instead.
