Connections

A charming collection of short stories about life on a Caribbean island resort

By Sheila O'Flanagan

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Sun, sea and sparkling storytelling... Escape to paradise with the guests at the White sands resort in the Caribbean in an unputdownable read from the author of SUDDENLY SINGLE and IF YOU WERE ME.

Sheila O'Flanagan's CONNECTIONS transports her readers to the Caribbean island resort of White Sands, where visitors arrive hoping their dreams will come true - and they sometimes do. Not to be missed by readers of Veronica Henry and Freya North.

In touching, poignant and delicious tales of life by the ocean, the holiday doesn't quite turn out as planned for the resort's guests. There's Tara, who's arrived with the man she wants to marry only to find that a rejected lover is planning to get in the way; and Grainne, who's been sent with her husband by their children to celebrate their anniversary, and who thinks the time has come to move on. Rudy's on an idyllic break with his young son which is set for an unexpected ending; and Isobel - of Sheila's much-loved bestseller ISOBEL'S WEDDING - discovers her ex-lover Nico might be staying just next door.

Romance is very much alive in the hot Caribbean nights...
