Our pick for May is by Sunday Times bestseller, much-loved presenter and author Fern Britton. We're delighted to be featuring her newest novel, A Good Catch, a warm and funny story of friendship, love triangles and family secrets.
A lifetime of friendship. A lifetime of secrets.
As they grew up in the Cornish fishing village of Trevay, life for four friends seemed all mapped out. Jesse Behenna would marry the beautiful Greer Clovelly, uniting two great Cornish families. And Loveday Carter was happy to live in Greer's shadow whilst Jesse's best friend, Mickey, loved her from afar.
What seems so simple in the innocence of youth is far more complicated than it appears. Under intense pressure from his family to marry Greer, Jesse faces an agonising choice, one which could change the course of all their futures.
All these years later, secrets and lies break to the surface in Trevay, threatening to wreck old friendships...And possibly lives too.
