Chorleywood Bookshop invites you to an evening of Summer fiction! Join Catherine Alliott & Fanny Blake at Chenies Manor House for a complimentary Pimms, nibbles and two fantastic summer reads!

Fanny Blake’s ‘A Summer Reunion’ begins with one perfect villa, four old friends, and a holiday that will change everything…

As the four friends gather, secrets are unearthed, old scores settled and new friendships forged. Will this holiday bring them together or tear them apart? And will each of them grasp their second chance for happiness…?


Meet Flora. Flora’s been in love with her husband for twenty years. The trouble is, he’s been married to someone else for the past fifteen . . .

Now she’s been invited to spend the summer in the shady lanes and sandy coves of Cornwall. It should be blissful.

But when her ex husband and his new wife arrive, Flora has a decision to make. Will she spend the summer playing happy families with the woman who stole her husband’s heart, and the mother-in-law who might have had a hand in it? Or will stumbling on the family secret change her mind about them all? Catherine Alliott’s ‘A Cornish Summer’ is a hilarious and poignant summer read!

Could you also enter the garden room through the side door please. Someone will be on hand to direct you on the day.
