A novel about contemporary relationships. Four siblings gather at their mother's request for the fortieth anniversary of the family hotel next to a lake in Brunnen, Switzerland. There is plenty of family tensions and each of the characters has a secret. Although there is plenty of drama, this is a fairly gentle and largely satisfying read, even if sometimes you will want to give some of the characters a good talking-to.
This relationships/romance story couldn’t half do with a spit and polish and redesign. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it. The tone of the writing is warm and engaging and the storyline not quite what you’ll expect.
This is a light and amusing escapism book, which nevertheless touches on some serious subjects. It is about families and friendships and loyalties. It's an enjoyable read.

This is an ambitious first novel that is an emotional but in many ways an uplifting read. There are strong themes of friendship, hope and love (not just of the romantic kind) and an ending that will leave you wanting more.
