I could taste the sea air and feel the shingle beneath my feet in this gorgeous tale of female friendship and new beginnings. I thoroughly enjoyed The Whitstable High Tide Swimming Club: it’s a warm, engaging novel, full of heart and soul, and perfect to cosy up with on a chilly autumn night. – Victoria Fox




* * * * *

In the gorgeous seaside town of Whitstable, brokenhearted Deb begins to swim each day and gathers a new group of friends around her. But can the magic of sea heal the hurt of the past? Or will family ties drag her underwater again?

A heart-warming, funny and poignant story of romance, friendship and second chances. It’s also a song to the author’s home town of Whitstable, where the sea is smooth, the shingle is painful on bare feet, and the air is full of possibilities.



Praise for The Whitstable High Tide Swimming Club:

‘Warm, wise and funny’ Rachael Lucas.


What Amazon readers are saying about The Whitstable High Tide Swimming Club:

‘There is poignancy and loneliness, humour and loss. And an overwhelming unity to keep the club going.’

‘This book is beautifully written and was a pleasure to read. The characters are likeable and believable, but it was the sense of place that I enjoyed the most.’

‘I devoured this in one sitting: the first part of a perfectly poised novel about friendship, bravery, and the perfect calm that the sea can draw into busy lives.’

‘This really made me want to take up sea swimming! A very charming novel, with characters you’ll want to see more of. Will definitely be reading more.’

‘The setting of Whitstable works beautifully, the rhythm of the tides holds them together and the battle they have taken on forges new friendships.’
