Life’s a Beach and Then.. is the first book in the Liberty Sands Trilogy
After almost twenty years of struggling financially to bring up her beloved son, Harry, single mum, Holly Wilson, has landed a dream job as the travel blogger Liberty Sands, travelling to five-star resorts around the world, the latest being in Mauritius. The lies she must tell to protect her cover story seem a small price to pay until she is befriended by British couple, Rosemary and her architect husband Robert, who have a tragic secret of their own. Holly instantly feels a closeness to Rosemary that was missing from her relationship with her estranged, alcoholic mother, Carol. They introduce Holly to handsome novelist, Philippe, and for the first time since she was abandoned by Harry’s father she allows herself to fall in love. Back in the UK, Holly is shocked when Rosemary reveals that she intends to end her own life at a clinic in Switzerland and asks for Holly’s help. Still reeling, Holly discovers that Philippe has used intimate details of their romance as the basis for his latest novel which he had been struggling to write. Feeling used and betrayed, she breaks off all communication with him and then discovers she is pregnant.
