    Lucy Diamond is the bestselling author of both The Secrets of Happiness and Summer at Shell Cottage and in her latest heart-warming novel, The House of New Beginnings, she tackles the subjects of love, loss and starting over.

    Number 11, Dukes Square may look like the other grand houses on the Brighton seafront and it most certainly has a place in the city's history, but it's also a building that plays host to a whole series of new beginnings - journalist Georgie followed her childhood sweetheart to Brighton but wants to carve out her own career. She loves the vibrant nature of the city, but is she going to get into trouble?

    Charlotte wants a new start after suffering a heartbreaking loss and wants to keep her head down, but her stylish elderly neighbour Margot is determined for this not to happen; and Rosa is looking to build her career as a sous chef. It's a gruelling and thankless career, but then she comes up against a stroppy teenager who inspires her to change her life choices.

    As the three tenants find each other, they embark on this exciting new chapter in their lives together. It's a moving and uplifting read.
