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.

    " Very easy book to read, just what you need if you don't want anything taxing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/12/2014

    " Perfect summer read. Easy-going, nice and simple. Tells the stories of the people who own or visit the beach huts in Devon and how their tales inter-twine as their stories develop. I really enjoyed it. "

    " This was a beach read that I got in Spain in a store with only a small selection of English titles. It tells the stories of various people who rent the huts on an English Beach or who come into that area for some reason. Some of their paths cross in interesting ways. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoe Longland | 1/19/2014

    " Was lent this from a friend who described it as a lovely book and I totally agree, not in a dull way but in a lovely, can't wait to see what happens in the end way, fabulous end and I am glad I had a tissue for a bookmark!! Can't wait to read more of your books especially as I spent a lot of time in Cornwall growing up.x "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 1/10/2014

    " This is chick lit to appeal to a wide age range. This is not just about twenty or thirty-somethings but ranges across the love lives of teenagers to pensioners. A great read for the beach (says something in the title), you'll sail through it. It's not howl with laughter chick lit but it is has pace and interesting characters with interesting snippets of their lives to keep it going plus a seaside setting. What's more to like than a bit of sun, sand, sea, surf and a row of brightly coloured beach huts - I want one! No seaside town is complete without a hotel, pub, restaurant or ice cream stall and that essential ingredient children. A good light summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zena Jones | 1/6/2014

    " A good summer read, great for escapism! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 1/1/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, short stories all interlinked with very satisfying endings. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abigail Ward | 11/23/2013

    " Fantastic!!! I couldn't wait to finish. Shame there weren't more pages to this book! Loved how the lives if it's characters, though written as individual stories, intertwined as the book progressed. A definite recommendation. It made me tingle and laugh at the same time. Well done Henry!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette | 10/21/2013

    " Really liked this book and loved the way that the different chapters weaved different characters together. Great summer read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 9/7/2013

    " A nice bit of Summer escapism by the beach. Not sure the author gets into the heads of teenagers that well but a great light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 8/14/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As we are now enjoying beautiful spring days I could imagine myself sitting on the deck of "the shack" reading this book. A very enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaki | 8/10/2013

    " Perfect light read for the plane. In fact, summer beach reading. Written as a series of short stories that tie into each other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicki Wright | 6/22/2013

    " Enjoyable and the beach hut lifestyle is enviable but I felt the author had created too many different story strands and they were only all finally interwoven and concluded in the last chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 5/28/2013

    " This was an interesting book of intertwined stories about different generations of people who have enjoyed a special summer place for many years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki Slater | 5/23/2013

    " Easy to read but a little slow at times, the characters are loveable enough but it doesn't necessarily get you hooked. I think it's a pass the time book rather than a must read, but pleasant none-the-less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Jackson | 5/15/2013

    " Full of humour. Enjoyable holiday read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Lloyd | 2/9/2013

    " Really enjoyed, characters described well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 11/12/2012

    " Good read and I love beach huts! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie Hunt | 10/15/2012

    " A great read but i find when lots of people are brought into a book i get a little confussed. i loved how all the lifes were blended and how it all comes together at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison Gray | 6/29/2012

    " Each chapter is like a short story, but most of the stories end up linking the charactors together, Nice Summer reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura Dobb | 4/27/2012

    " Not my kind of book. It's very haphazard and sometimes you don't know which characters you are reading about until half the way through the chapter. Not for me this one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie (73) | 4/15/2012

    " Really enjoyed this and would recommend it as a good holiday read. Well written and each chapter is written around a different set of characters that own a row of beach huts set in Devon. Will certainly be looking out for other books by this author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Val | 3/30/2012

    " Found this mediocre and disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa Bassett | 12/17/2011

    " loved it! this is definately holiday reading and it was just what I needed at the time. Escapism at its best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey | 11/26/2011

    " I really loved this book. I started reading it on a day trip to the beach and couldn't put it down. A wonderful holiday read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kezza22 | 11/4/2011

    " I was expecting loads of short stories but I found that there was too many characters on this book to keep up with and then I got bored with it and didn't really care.... I ended up not bothering to finish the book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo at Jaffareadstoo | 3/19/2011

    " This is a super series of intertwining short stories which highlight a community of Beach Hut dwellers over the course of a summer. All the characters come to life, and when some stories overlap it all adds to the overall effect of a light and easy summer read. "
