Sisters Edith and Rose have rather come down in the world by keeping their hotel, Seaview House. So Mr Heritage believes, and he’s not pleased when Rose’s daughter Lucy—grown a bit too attractive for his comfort—becomes friendly with his godson Edward. Would-be paramour Nevil isn’t thrilled either, and to complicate matters further, Edward is behind a scheme to build new terraced housing, depriving village residents of their coveted sea view.
Dilemmas and dramas unfold—including a fire, a cook’s prophecy, and a disaster of a luncheon—but the loose ends get tied up in Elizabeth Fair’s cheerful, inimitable style.
