Millie works the night shift at her local hospital’s switchboard, feeling undervalued and unappreciated. She harbours regrets about not pursuing her dreams and her passion for music, particularly singing. However, her small Cumbrian town poses a challenge; with many pubs closed and those remaining already featuring regular bands and singers, opportunities seem scarce.
This dynamic is set to change thanks to Pippa, the surrogate mother of Millie’s best friend, who presents a golden opportunity. For Millie, relocating to the South could be the break she needs. But this new chapter is complicated when Sam, the one man she’s never forgotten, unexpectedly reappears in her life.
Meanwhile, Millie’s cousin Harry is secretly in love with Amber, Millie’s best friend. Although Harry confessed his feelings to Amber before she moved South, the outcome was unresolved. Millie encourages Harry to fight for Amber, believing they are meant to be together. Yet, unbeknownst to Amber, Harry harbours a significant secret, known only to Millie.
As the story unfolds, the question remains: can Sam and Millie overcome their past differences and open up to each other? Will Millie let her guard down? There’s hope that the charm of Pebble Bank Bay will work its magic on these two couples.
