Escape with Katie Fforde…. A Summer at Sea is a comforting, delightful tale about taking chances, trusting instincts, nourishing friendships and finding love. If you’re a fan of Katie Fforde, then you know you're about to be whisked away to a place of romance and happy endings.

Emily is happy with her life just as it is. She has a career as a midwife that she loves and is more than happy living on her own. But she also feels it is time for a change and a spot of sea air. So when her pregnant best friend Rebecca asks whether she would like to spend the summer cooking on a ‘puffer’ boat just off the coast of Scotland, she jumps at the chance. But she barely has time to get to grips with the galley before she finds herself with a lot on her plate. Rebecca is heavily pregnant and is thrilled to have her friend on board doing most of the work. Then there's Emily's competitive and jealous kitchen assistant who thinks she should be head-cook, not Emily. And there's Alasdair, the handsome local doctor who Emily is desperately trying not to notice. Because if she falls in love with him, as he appears to be falling for her, will she ever want her old life back again?

In A Summer at Sea, Emily discovers a beautiful part of Scotland, and the potential for a whole new life, but will she embrace it? Katie Fforde writes with a soothing, light touch, it is easy to relate to her characters, from teddy loving nine year old Kate through to Fair Isle knitterholic Maisie, A Summer at Sea encourages you to take some time off from the real world in order to sink into a gentle, engaging and enjoyable read.
