Guernsey Retreat by Anne Allen

Romance, intrigue, murder and a stunning location… all the elements of a perfect summer read.

If you’re planning on having a ‘staycation’ this year, Anne Allen’s latest novel in her Guernsey Series, could provide the break you need. But don’t worry if you haven’t read the first two – each is a complete novel in its own right. Guernsey Retreat leads us around the island, seeing it through the eyes of a first-timer. The reader is never left behind or excluded from any past events.

As I have read the series, I can recommend them all, if only so you experience the frisson of excitement as you recognise an element or character from the earlier novels.

The author writes in a confident and steady way – there’s no rush, she wants to set the scene and lead us into the plot so it remains credible. Good romance has to be credible!

I found this a very enjoyable read – perfect for a piece of romantic escapism.

The book is available from Amazon:
