Editorial Reviews


"If you haven't read Beecroft's writing before, you're in for a treat.She has an amazing way with words, and writes with an eloquence thatbrings both setting and emotion to life in vivid detail. Whenever I pick up one of her books I can't put it down, and Shining in the Sun is no different." - Awarded a 'Desert Island Keeper' from All About Romance

"Shining in the Sun is a breath of fresh air and you will lovethe British and French ambience. Alex Beecroft is a wonderful writer and her prose is some of the best I have read. She has a knack for creating complex flawed protagonists with whom readers fall in love..." - Gay Book Reviews"And you know what I really really loved? The way the stakeswere set up; the beautifully set up believeable conflict. I felt thetruth of the characters' dilemmas. I believed. They were real to me." - Isn't It Romance

"Much of what I enjoyed about Shining in the Sun is the balance betweenissues of sexual and personal identity and strong genre storytellingconventions... I found Shining in the Sun to be an engaging, emotional book." - Dear Author

"This novel broke my heart then put the pieces back together again..... I came away from the book with a sense of a specific place and time - a kind of fin de siecle moment that will resonate with anyone who's ever loved, even hopelessly, in that golden period of summertime. Shining In The Sun is an extraordinary emotional and romantic story that's richly rewarding to read." - Kate Cotoner

Book Description

Once a year, rich boy Alec and poor boy Darren escape from lives which – though very different – are equally unbearable. Pushed around by selfish families, they try to knuckle under, as long as they can have August for themselves. Alone in his yacht, Alec contemplates his future of marriage and lies. Darren finances his surfing by picking up dangerous rich men, and has the scars to prove it. But this year their accidental meeting gives both of them something bigger to fight for, and love helps them become the heroes they never thought they were.
