In London, Richard and Sarah meet, fall in love, and marry. When they decide to escape the rat race and buy a cottage in the Suffolk village of Worth, they're hard-pressed to find friends. But a friendship develops between them and their new neighbour. Catherine, a single woman, admires their love for each other, whilst they admire her uncompromising nature.

But as the months pass and Brigid carves out a place on the island and in the sisters' lives, a complicated web of betrayal, fear and desire culminates in one shocking night that will change the island, and its inhabitants, forever...

If This Is Paradise, I Want My Money Back!

Author:

Claudia Carroll

Synopsis:

Charlotte Grey is hovering between life and death, but it's taken a coma for her to finally open her eyes and see things clearly. She's made a mess of her time on Earth, and wasted five years on worthless James Kane. After a peek at the afterlife, she decides that's not all it's cracked up to be either. Kind of like a big retirement home in the sky, with no sign of Elvis or Princess Di. Then Charlotte is offered a chance to go back, this time as a bona fide angel. But there's a catch. The person she's assigned to watch over is a certain Mr James Kane. Just because she's passed on doesn't mean she's moved on.
