Sometimes the hardest person to save is yourself…
Marie Johnson fell in love with The Smugglers pub when she first moved to Dorset with her husband, Stephen.
But when Stephen’s wandering eye caused the breakdown of their marriage, and the costs of running the pub started to mount, Marie felt her dreams crashing down around her.
With local celebrations planned for the 60th anniversary of D-Day, Marie is hopeful things will turn around.
But she could never have predicted the ways her life will soon be changed forever.
A charming American soldier walks into Marie’s life, but it becomes clear nothing is really as it seems...
Why is Marie suddenly plagued by headaches? Is her American soldier everything he seems to be?Or could the D-Day re-enactments be stirring up something from the past…?
I went into this story blind. I didn’t read the blurb or any reviews and I think this is the best way to start this story so you really get a sense of the mystery.
I will try and make my review as vague as possible so as not to spoil the story.
Marie is the chef at The Smugglers, a pub she owns along with her estranged husband Stephen. Stephen is controlling and verbally abusive and even though Marie doesn’t want her husband back she is finding it hard to completely let go, more so now their son, Jude, is getting older and will be leaving home soon.
Studland is a buzz with servicemen as a re-enactment of the D-Day rehearsals, which were performed there 60 years ago, will be taking place along with a memorial service.
Marie encounters a few different men on her path to self discovery and they all play an important roll in her journey. There is the elusive serviceman Corbin, George the WWII veteran, George’s son Mark and American serviceman Paxton who is the new love interest.
Jane Cable has written a richly described, heart-felt and captivating story, mixing the past with the present, as Marie battles to release her unfulfilled dreams and start anew.
Marie’s struggle will have you yearning for a happy ending.
Another You is recommended for readers who enjoy a mystery mixed with history and a little romance.
