About a decade ago, Rosa, Bee and Iona stayed in a guest room in a windmill in Greece. They were teenagers then and the fond memories have lasted for years. Iona hasn't spoken to Rosa and Bee in two years and none of the three are as happy as they used to be.

Rosa hasn't found a career or a man that she loves.
Bee is about to get married to a good man that she's not sure she loves anymore.
Iona is in a controlling relationship and is living in a bubble, isolated from anyone but her boyfriend.

This book focused more on friendship than anything else. It's not about time spent on a beach or the cute stories of restoring the windmill. It's about a bond of friendship so strong that it still lasts after years of silence.

I think there was too much time spent on "before". By that I mean, before Rosa and Bee got to the windmill. Before Iona resurfaces. I feel like too much of the book was spent with Iona unhappy. I though those chapters were hard to read because the reader sees what is going to happen, what needs to happen and it's like trying to rush through to make it happen.

I think the book really started when the three women were finally all at the windmill. ( )

I received this book via Goodreads Firstreads in exchange for an honest review.
I have never read a book by Vanessa Greene before and i was not disappointed.
The story of the women involved was interesting had my attention from page one.
I feel that the author also left the book with many possibilities of a follow up!
I also think that the book synopsis sums this book up completely. Much better than i could!!

When Rosa and Bee get together in the run-up to Bee's wedding, they reminisce about the holiday they took together as teenagers to the beautiful Greek island of Paros. They remember the sandy coves, the guest house in the converted windmill where they stayed with their friend Iona, and the gorgeous local men. As memories of that long-forgotten holiday resurface, they are forced to confront the turns their lives have taken - and the guilt they both feel about letting Iona slip away from them. When they learn that the windmill guest house is going bust they form a plan: why not go back to the island and take it over themselves? And so begins a life-changing journey - because it turns out that opening a guest house and reliving their teenage dreams isn't that easy ...Full of romance and friendship, love and life, laughter and tears, The Beachside Guest House is an uplifting novel about the magic of starting over with friends by your side.
