The Beach House is a superbly written novel set in the small Queensland town of Sunset Point. Nothing much happens here, which is just the way the locals like it ... so when an outsider with grand plans threatens to demolish an iconic landmark and build a huge resort, the battle lines are drawn. Young journalist Jessica hopes to make it big with her coverage of the court case, but first she has to appease her editor and put a human interest spin on the situation. At first glance the five people she chooses to background have very little in common; but it soon becomes apparent that staying at The Beach House has changed all of them in some way.… (mere)

    Den italienske klasse af Maeve Binchy (Michelle4263)
    Michelle4263: Both books feature several characters involved in the same story, but their stories are told separately at first and then they merge at the end.

    Upside Down Inside Out af Monica McInerney (kazgreen1)
    kazgreen1: While the writing styles are not quite the same, I think the Australian setting and the easy going feel of the stories was kind of similar

A nice, easygoing holiday read with likable characters. Really enjoyed it. ( )

The setting for The Beach House is a small seaside town (the kind most of us have visited) in Queensland. There are five different stories, which are told separately, but they are weaved together towards the end. Each character has their own reasons for holidaying at The Beach House and you learn of that as the story unfolds. The writing style is quite simple but engaging and you definitely get a real sense of the house. There is drama and some sadness within the stories, but also humour and fun and the overall feel of the book is an uplifting one. Once you get involved in each story, it's hard to put down. It's not really chick lit, but I think those who like chick lit would enjoy it. ( )

This book was really enjoyable. It's kind of like five books in one, but the stories do end up linked together. Each character has a different experience at the Beach House, some are happy, some a bit sad but each story draws you in. The characters are well described and so is the small Queensland town. I was definitely left wanting more. It reminded me a lot of Maeve Binchy (except in an Australian setting). A great holiday read ( )

This book really describes an Australian beach town so well. It is the stories of five different characters who have all stayed at The Beach House. I found myself drawn to the characters (especially Tom) and cared about what happened to them. ( )
