A Summer Scandal – Kat French

When Violet inherits a flat in the seaside town of Swallow Beach it has been left just as it was when her grandfather left some 40 years previous. That is enough for Violet to be dealing with but she also finds she has inherited the local pier, that her grandfather bought as it was her grandmother’s favourite place.

The pier has not been in use for 40 years and the local mayor wants a compulsory purchase order on it and to bring it back to the way it used to be.

Violet is inspired for another use for her pier, which will give her space for her workshops where she designs costumes for stage and screen. As well as new friends and neighbours who all have interesting occupations and require space to sell their wares.

We are not talking sticks of rock and kiss me quick hats but with more adult theme which is going to play right into the hands of the local mayor.

Whilst this is all going on Violet starts to discover more about her grandparents past and why it is her mother has never been back to Swallow Beach since the day she left and why she will not ever visit again.

Meeting new neighbour Calvin sets pulses ratings for Violet and readers alike but of course nothing is ever as it seems and Calvin has some secrets of his own which threaten the future of the pier and Violet staying in Swallow Beach permanently.

Kat French’s novels are always a joy to read , perfect escapism with a big dollop of romance and seduction which will keep you hooked.
