For bargeman Sam Scully, life in Cook's Basin is nothing short of paradise. A wonderland of golden sand and turquoise waters, battered old tinnies and wonky pontoons, it's a realm unspoilt by the modern world.
But then a notice goes up in the Square that screams ‘EXCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT!'
Paradise is about to be ripped apart.
With plans underway to build a flash resort in the heart of their community, the residents leap into action - with Sam as their leader, and a twelve-foot papier-mache cockatoo as their mascot . . . But it's never going to be easy to turn the tide of ‘progress'.
Meanwhile there's trouble brewing at the Briny Café. Kate Jackson is struggling to come to terms with the dreadful secret spilled on her mother's deathbed. And as for Kate's co-owner, Ettie Brookbank… Well, what is happening to Ettie?

This, the sequel to The Briny Café is as heartwarming and delightful as the first book. A story of the determination of a community to do what is right, and to save what is theirs from the greed of others. A
thoroughly entertaining read, but I would recommend reading The Briny Café first. - Wade (QBD)
