The Guesthouse at Lobster Bay | Annie Robertson

The Guesthouse at Lobster Bay book cover

This really is a warm hug of a book, a great summer read from Annie Robertson. The author is certainly well-researched, as Annie has her own guesthouse in a beautiful coastal town in Scotland, the inspiration for the new Lobster Bay series. Here’s a flavour of the story and an exclusive extract from the author herself…

When Emma sees The Guesthouse at Lobster Bay for sale online, she knows it is exactly the peaceful haven and fresh start she needs to recover from a recent trauma.

Yet the moment she picks up the keys, Emma’s dream of owning a successful guesthouse begins to unravel.

With only one month to get things in order and the surprise of an enormous dog left behind by the previous owner, Emma soon realises she got more than she bargained for. Then there is her new neighbour, local boat-builder Aidan, who is both self-assured and unwelcoming and yet her only hope at getting the guesthouse together in time. Over the course of the summer Emma must navigate unforeseen dilemmas and new friendships while keeping the business afloat.

But as she falls in love with Lobster Bay, is she also falling for Aidan?
