Three strangers all caught in the deep end... but can they help each other float through?

After tragically losing her husband and being left a single mother to two children, Gabriella has only one escape for herself - swimming at a local London lido to clear her mind.

A constant stream of both new and familiar faces visit the lido like Gabriella, but she doesn't suspect any are suffering quite like her until she meets Helen - who swims to escape her emotionless husband, and Ian - who feels lost in the deep end after becoming unemployed and unable to tell his husband.

Grateful for new companionship, these three strangers decide to make their friendship into something more permanent: The Lonely Hearts Lido Club.

An uplifting, captivating read about the power of friendship. Fans of Hazel Prior and Mike Gayle will adore this.

Just a very sweet story of love, loss, friendship and it’s healing properties. It’s not a great novel but it’s a lovely, light read that doesn’t require a large time investment or deep mental concentration. I enjoyed it. The narrator was a plus!

The story was reasonable entertaining but felt like it needed better editing. Some parts were unnecessarily lengthy and repetitive and the story itself had some inconsistencies. As 2 of the three main characters were female I would have preferred a female narrator.
