Escape to the Highland Coral Beach – where broken hearts can be healed
Beatrice Halliday needs a break from life. Booking a trip to the Highlands on a whim, Beatrice hopes learning Gaelic in a beautiful Scottish village might help her heal her grief after losing her baby, her husband and her much loved job in a space of months.
For the past two of her ten year marriage, Beatrice Halliday has been getting progressively more broody. Now, at last, she has a positive pregnancy test and can’t wait for her husband, Rich, to get home.
Things obviously didn’t go well as we join a broken hearted Beatrice seven months later travelling to the Scottish Highlands. Needing to get away, she’s booked herself into The Princess and the Pea Inn, in the picturesque village of Port Willow, on a whim. First impressions are less than favourable, especially on a drizzly day, and the inn seems badly run. They couldn’t even get her crafting choice right. Her single room was tiny and needed a revamp. Beatrice resolves to leave the following morning…if she doesn’t break something climbing down from the bed in her requested change of room.
Gene Fergusson had seen his fair share of single women arriving at the inn since his younger brother had set up the activity and crafting holidays part of the website back in the spring — in fact now it was the height of the summer season they were arriving in a steady stream, but none of them had turned up tearful, clench-fisted and furious, like this one.
