William Nicholson is the master of the slice of life novel, this one being set over 7 days in the summer of 2010. It follows four couples in the run-up to them meeting at a dinner party on the Saturday night at Henry and Laura's house. The four couples each have their own trials to deal with and the story simply follows that.

This is the third in a series of books set in Sussex. They feature some of the same characters, and it was lovely to meet them again, but they can be read as standalone novels.

I don't think The Golden Hour was quite as good as the first two, but as always Nicholson's characterisations are what make the story work. It's a very good read and I shall look forward to meeting some of the characters again in Motherland. ( )
