Time’s running out to save the little kiosk by the sea…
Sabine knows that if she doesn’t come up with a plan to save her little kiosk soon, it might be too late. If only her best friend Owen would stop distracting her with marriage proposals!
Harriet is returning to Dartmouth for the first time in thirty years, haunted by the scandal that drove her away and shocked by an inheritance that could change everything.
Rachel never expected to find love again after her world was shattered a year ago. But it seems as if the sleepy seaside town has different ideas…
One thing’s for sure, it’s a summer they will never forget!


Three very different women find love, fortune and friendship in the seaside town of Dartmouth. Sabine, Harriet and Rachel all have their own reasons for being in town but their lives entwine to create one drama of a storyline.

The Little Kiosk By The Sea revolves around a longstanding seasonal ticket selling kiosk which has become part of the town's furniture. When the kiosk doesn't open there's a lot of gossip but when it suddenly appears at Easter it's instantly like everything is back to normal. But what is really going on behind the scenes? You'll have to read the book to find out! Sabine knows that The Little Kiosk By The Sea has been struggling, but she maintains her focus and wants more than anything for the kiosk to remain a part of Dartmouth.

In addition to Sabine's business troubles Harriet has unfinished business in town of a sadder nature. Death is never a nice topic to be involved with but in Harriet's case it seems like her guardian angel has delivered a well needed hand of cards. 

The final leading lady, Rachel, has another sad sub story which may also be looking up, but can her new love interest step up to the plate? 

The Little Kiosk By The Sea is as choppy as the waves on the sea. The sub plots pull on your heart strings, make you frown and make laugh. This is a perfect beach read with all the drama you could normally expect from a soap opera. The only thing missing is a cocktail.
