BLOG TOUR- A Secret for the Lifeboat Sisters



As the sun warms the sand of Port Promise bay and the sea is stained turquoise, Gaby Morrow is about to discover that her life is going to change forever…

As she looks through the window of Thistledown Cottage, her perfect home with its flower-filled garden and views of the sparkling, white-tipped waves, 
Gaby Morrow should feel like she has it all. She watches her two gorgeous children race down to the golden beach and waves goodbye to her husband Kilian, his chestnut hair tousled as he heads off for another day working on the lifeboats. To her friends and family Gaby’s life looks wonderful, but deep down Gaby knows that this is a lie.

Recently Kilian has grown distant, a terrible tragedy at sea causing him to withdraw. Try as she might, Gaby can’t get her beloved husband to open up, and she knows Kilian has been lying about where he has been going. Gaby wants to believe she can trust him. But when she discovers that he has been keeping a secret that will change all their lives, will she ever be able to feel the same again?

Gaby’s sisters rally round in her hour of need and remind her of everything she has that is worth fighting for. But just as she makes her decision, she sees helicopters circling the sea and the call she has dreaded her whole life comes in. Kilian’s rescue mission has gone wrong. Will Gaby’s life be turned upside down all over again? And has she only realised what is truly important when it’s too late?

A beautiful and emotional read about losing everything and piecing yourself back together. Fans of Nicola May, Jo Bartlett and Jessica Redland will lose their hearts to A Secret for The Lifeboat Sisters.

While it may look like Gaby Morrow is living a charmed life, her relationship with her husband Kilian is troubled. In fact, despite being the parents of two children, Gaby wonders if their marriage can withstand the fact that Kilian seems to be keeping a secret from her. 

Kilian is part of a boat rescue team. Gaby had previously lost her father on one of his rescue missions, and worries about Kilian every time the get the call that a boater is in trouble. With harsh words shared between them, this latest rescue mission might cause the rescuers their lives, making Gaby wish she has at least one more chance to talk to her husband. 

Kilian is indeed keeping a secret, one that will definitely affect his family, but will that put up a wall too high to save his marriage? In this third book of a wonderful trilogy, in which the first two books featured Gaby’s two sisters, quite an emotional story is told. 

Port Promise Bay is an idyllic location, and the urgency of the boat rescue service is sure to make the reader hold their breath. Beyond that, this book delivers the powerful messages of communication, family and love. This lovely series comes to a close with a powerful story that delivers a powerful emotional punch. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


From a young age, Tilly Tennant was convinced that she was destined for the stage.  Once she realised she wasn’t actually very good at anything that would put her on the stage, she started to write stories instead. There were lots of terrible ones, like The Pet Rescue Gang (aged eight), which definitely should not see the light of day ever again. Thankfully, her debut novel, Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was not one of those, and since it hit the Amazon best seller lists she hasn’t looked back. Born in Dorset, she currently lives in Staffordshire with her husband, two daughters, three guitars, four ukuleles, two violins and a kazoo.
