Good holiday read,
This review is from: The Beach Hut (Paperback)This is my first book by Veronica Henry, and it was recommended to me by a friend. I'm pleased to have discovered this author now, as I very much enjoyed this book. I found the setting of the stories was described very well, and I could easily imagine what the beach huts and town looked like. I very much enjoyed how each chapter related to a different persons individual story, but thought the small links and hints between each very good. Each chapter was a satisfactory length for what was involved - it managed to tell the story of each character in a believable depth and therefore I felt drawn in and compeled to read on. No chapter was 'less interesting' than the rest, as each characters tale was appealing and it made me want to read on. I thought the conclusion was well put together, and the final two chapters brought everything together nicely. Overall, this is a perfect 'beach book'. It doesnt take long to read and is easy to pick up from where you left off.

Great Fun !
This was a lovely holiday read, the interweaving lives of various families who owned beach huts along a beach in north Somerset. Knowing beach huts and the beach hut owners on the Dorset coast where I live, it was all lightheated, funny and believable.
