Paradise HouseBook - 2003
Angel Sands is an old-fashioned seaside resort of bed and breakfasts, cottages to let and teashops. And with the best views of the tiny beach and surrounding coastline is Paradise House, home to the Baxter girls - or the Sisters of Whimsy as they're known locally.
With their mother taking time out to find herself, it's down to Genevieve to maintain the smooth running of the family owned bed and breakfast. Not an easy task given that their father - now that his wife isn't around - has suddenly become a moving target for the opposite sex.
And there's little help from her sisters. Nattie is too busy offending her long time admirer, Duggie Kellar, the local entrepreneur, and Polly, musically gifted, spends most of her days with her head in the clouds or in a book.
But when news spreads in the tightly knit community that a nearby dilapidated barn has been sold, Genevieve finds that a bittersweet trip down memory lane is unavoidable.
