A short break can become the holiday of a lifetime . . .
From the bestselling author of THE BEACH HUT


In a gorgeous quay-side hotel in Cornwall, the long weekend is just beginning . . .
Claire Marlowe owns ‘The Townhouse by the Sea’ with Luca, the hotel’s charismatic chef. She ensures everything runs smoothly – until an unexpected arrival checks in and turns her whole world upside down.

And the rest of the guests arrive with their own baggage. There’s a couple looking for distraction from a family tragedy; a man trying to make amends for an affair he bitterly regrets . . . and the young woman who thinks the Cornish village might hold the key to her past.

Here are affairs of the heart, secrets, lies and scandal – all wrapped up in one long, hot weekend.

Fast-paced and full of guilty secrets The Long Weekend is a great summer read. Veronica Henry's creation of a clever web of characters, each with their own story to tell, makes this a real page-turner.
