Looking for escapism - could be romance, cozy murder, whatever.

How about The Sea The Sea by Irish Murdoch? I read it recently and found it gripping

The wife who ran away by Tess Stimson.

I read it a while back and it was gripping yet easy reading at the same time.

Pretty sure it had some sea escapism in it to smile

If you like a touch of fantasy/mythology then Ingo and The Tide Knot are nice. They are technically YA books, but I enjoyed them, and they are set beside and in the sea. They are about a brother and sister who find out that their father wasn't actually drowned in a storm when they were small, he was a merman and went home.
Or have you ever read "The Island of the Blue Dolphin" by Scott O'Dell - it's an "oldie but goodie, and based on a true story.
Or even Cookie by Jacqueline Wilson grin I read any of hers that anyone gives DD, before I let her read them, and that one features a new home/new life by the sea. It's only short, so a quick read, and it is a children's book, but I actually enjoyed it fir what it was, and it whiled away a couple of hours.

Thanks for the recommendation lagoonhaze - I've got hold of this from the library and I'm really enjoying it.
