"Some memories can be forgotten ... Others won't ever go away. For renowned actor Sir Mungo, his quiet home village in Devon provides the perfect retreat. Close by are his brother and his wife, and the rural location makes his home the ideal getaway for his old friends in London. Among those is Kit, who comes to stay for the summer, bringing with her a letter from her first and only love, Jake, and a heart in turmoil. Years have passed since they last saw each other, and now he has written to Kit asking to meet again. As the summer unfolds, secrets are uncovered that will shatter the sleepy community, and even tear a family apart. But those involved soon realize that the only way to move forward might be to confront the past.."-- Provided by publisher.

A setting in beautiful, rural Devon peopled with a cast of gently drawn characters, many in the autumn of their lives, shapes this book of short, related stories. Secrets, loves, relationships, plots and subplots are explored in evocative narration, making this the perfect read as summer draws to a close.

So so.
Book really begins at about page 108 and could have used editing.
I enjoyed the parallel between the writer who is trying to create a dramatic story in what he deems to be a sleepy, boring village, whereas in fact, the murder and mayhem drama he wants so badly to invent are happening right under his nose.
