Publisher's Summary

Returning to Penfleet after years in New York, Kate can't help but feel a pang of affection for the little town by the sea where she grew up. If only she were returning in happier circumstances. This last trip is full of farewells: to her childhood home, her once best friend and the life she left behind.

Kissing the widow of the richest man in town wasn't one of Nathan's best ideas. Now he can't get Vanessa out his mind. Skippering his grandfather's boat on picnic cruises up and down the river, Nathan wonders if it's time to move on. Small towns can be dangerous places if you're in the middle of a scandal.

Her husband's death has left Vanessa unsure what her role should be. After years of playing the part of a trophy wife, she can finally think about what she wants for a change.

Sam moved to Penfleet to raise his boys following the death of his wife. His deli has become the place where locals pour out their troubles and swap gossip, but amidst all the banter and laughter, has anyone stopped to notice what's troubling Sam recently?

In the narrow, cobbled streets that lead down to the harbour, the inhabitants of Penfleet live out their hopes and dreams in this gorgeously engaging novel by Veronica Henry, author of The Beach Hut.

not one of my favs

I have read a few of Veronica's books and really enjoyed them...this one however made me feel totally miserable! just when you think it might be on the up another negative thing happens. Gave up before the end

Utterly terrible

In my opinion nothing about this boring, predictable, patronisingly narrated story was appealing at all.

Romance is in the air.

I don't often read romances, but this was just what I needed. A feel-good factor of 10/10

Not a bad story

Story wasn't too bad, however the language was a bit pretentious in bits and the readers voice highlighted this.

Very enjoyable

What did you like most about High Tide?

Well written, relaxing and reassuring, even though the plot is at times predictable and maybe too simple. I would recommend it to anyone wanting something warm and looking for an injection of positive thinking.

What about Anna Bentinck’s performance did you like?

She is indeed a very good reader, but I didn't particularly like the use of different voices for different characters, especially the male ones. Nathan and his Grandad above all.

Loved it!!

Lovely story, lots of little sub plots all pulling together beautifully at the end. A real feel good story.
Perfect narration that really brought the story alive.

Discrepancies irritating

Penfleet cannot be in the North Sea and in Cornwall. As one brought up in Northumberland by the North Sea and now living in Plymouth on the South West coast bordering Cornwall this simple error irritates

Sad start

Blossoming to joy, a hug in a book. Almost makes you believe there is such a future for us.

A happy book

I loved this book and it was excellently read by Anna Bentinck. I felt all the characters came alive with her reading and the story had a beginning, a middle and an end. Excellent.
