“Definitely a light and refreshing read… this book has everything in it …death …sorrow …suspense …mystery …and romance.”
“This delightful, complicated and twisty tale has the advantage of being a remarkably well-written saga.”
All Laurel needs is a new life for herself and her two children. Recently widowed, she moves to a picturesque village just outside Marseille. A world apart from her hectic life in Dublin, Laurel is determined to leave behind the person she once was. Reinventing herself and reconnecting with her children is what she really needs.
David is a successful French actor, recently divorced, under media pressure and on the verge of a mental breakdown, he moves back to his parent’s family farm in Aix-en-Esperance. David needs to find himself again, away from the ‘lights, camera and action of his very public career.
Laurel and David become friends and slowly their friendship develops into something more. With Laurel feeling part of a family in more ways than she could ever imagine.
Paul is a politician, recently promoted to Justice Minister. He’s confident, grounded and totally committed to his private love life staying exactly that way – private. But an investigation involving a family he was once friends with, lands on his desk, and with strict orders from the Prime Minister of Ireland, he needs to make this problem disappear.
Just as Laurel, David, and Paul feel their lives couldn’t get any better, ugly phantoms from the past reappear. Can these three friends work together and fight for what they love or will they lose it all?
What a wonderful read!
Set in both Ireland and France this wonderful twisty tale is so much more than a romantic novel.
We are given complex characters in this well penned story which is both intelligent and intricate whilst terrifically gripping.
The author brings us a gorgeous refreshing romantic read with a very satisfying ending that has me wishing for more from this author.
