Jamie's Wake-up Call

Penniless and with no direction in his life, Jamie returns to Shellcombe Bay – a popular tourist resort on the east coast of England – after being named as a beneficiary in his uncle’s will. It is seven years since his hasty departure, following the tragic loss of his parents and a bitter confrontation with his brother, Matt. Their sister, Ashley, is desperate for a reconciliation, but realises there is a lot of mending to be done. Eager to claim his share of the inheritance, Jamie is devastated to find that the legacy consists of a run-down restaurant on the seafront and not the windfall he’d been hoping for. Once a little goldmine, the business is no longer trading and, rather than sell the place, Matt and Ashley want to transform it into a viable enterprise, with Jamie on board if he’s agreeable. It is a daunting challenge, given the rift between them. Will the gamble pay off or does the pressure prove too great for the siblings in a year fraught with tension? Ashley’s marriage is in crisis and Matt’s son is dealing with his own private hell at the hands of some ruthless bullies who wreak havoc in his life. When Jamie is pursued by a nefarious character from his past, danger is never far away. This is a story of life’s highs and lows, the resilience of the human spirit and the values of love and kinship. Amidst the ever present threats and harrowing ordeals, there is humour – the lively characters and amusing situations lightening the mood and adding colour to this absorbing family drama.
