Sticks and Stones

Author(s): Katharine E Smith

Location(s): Cornwall

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): present-day

“Excellent yet again. How can you not fall in love with Cornwall and these characters. Can’t wait to read the next one.”

“The last paragraph has you wanting the next chapter in the characters’ lives. I await the next book with longing!”

The scene is set for the perfect summer. Business is booming. The weather couldn’t be better. Best of all, Sam is coming back to Cornwall. For good.

A storm is brewing, however. It seems that somebody, somewhere, has it in for Alice, although it is not clear who, or why. As Julie tries to help her friend, she finds her own thoughts turning progressively towards motherhood. Sam, meanwhile, has the pressure of a new job, as well as a stressed-out girlfriend and a teenage daughter to contend with.

Fearing for her business, her relationship, and her sanity, can Alice get to the root of the problem before any permanent damage is done?

A Second Chance Summer, After the Sun and As Boundless as the Sea precede Sticks and Stones. The series is continued beautifully by Lighting the Sky, Something About the Stars, Weathering the Storm, and Sparkling Like Snow.

“Good to reconnect with the characters who have developed into friends after the previous books. The storyline is different, an interesting and very topical subject combining social media and mental health issues, leading the reader to an intriguing mystery…. with a realistic outcome. All set in that most lovely of counties, Cornwall.”
