When Rosa and Bee get together in the run-up to Bee's wedding, they reminisce about the holiday they took together as teenagers to the beautiful Greek island of Paros. They remember the sandy coves, the guest house in the converted windmill where they stayed with their friend Joanne, and the gorgeous local men. As memories of that long-forgotten holiday resurface, they are forced to confront the turns their lives have taken - and the guilt they both feel about letting Jo slip away from them. When they learn that the windmill guest house is going bust they formulate a plan: why not go back to the island and take it over themselves? And so begins a life-changing journey - because it turns out that opening a guest house and reliving their teenage dreams isn't that easy . . . Full of romance and friendship, love and life, laughter and tears, THE BEACHSIDE GUEST HOUSE is an uplifting novel about the magic of starting over with friends by your side.
