Reluctantly they set off, but on arrival it’s apparent they have every intention of enjoying every minute.
After the first night of partying, Jenny, feeling the pace, has to excuse herself and return to the hotel. She is mortified when she falls ungracefully into the sand and is confronted with Ethan, a handsome stranger, who helps her back to her room.
As the holiday continues, she keeps crossing paths with Ethan. He invites Jenny and her friends to dinner, for a trip on his yacht and to spend a week of their holiday at his new boutique hotel, ‘The Gessami Residence’. They all encounter new friendships, and truths are spoken about how they really feel about their lives, making their bond stronger.
Ethan is not what Jenny was expecting from this holiday, but the more time she spends with him, and her friends, the more she realises all she has missed since her husband died. Will she allow herself to love again?
This was a wonderful gentle meander through a bereaved woman’s discovery of love after losing her husband. Beautifully written, fantastically descriptive (so much so I wanted to visit all the places in the story) I loved it…’ – Netgalley Review
‘I loved this read. Four friends take a trip and the romance, the tale and the vibe from the City is everything that’s perfect in such an easy entertaining novel. While it’s not my usual genre, I enjoyed the escapism that this book allowed. It is very much a chick lit book and it won’t be for everyone but that said, it is like watching a fabulous tv show in fiction form.’ by Tracy Shephard (via NetGalley)
‘This is a great story, a romance combined with a girlfriend road trip. Jenny has been widowed for 3 years and her sons are away at college. Her 3 best friends are the only thing in her life that makes her get up each day. So when the 4 ladies travel to a small island to party and enjoy each other’s company the last thing Jenny expects is to meet Ethan. When he follows her back to England to court her and meet her sons, she is profoundly aware that it might be possible to find true love twice. This story emphasizes the importance of have girlfriends at any age and Jenny’s 3 friends are all deserving of great men just like Ethan. Lots of fun and laughter with the happy ending everyone is entitled to.’ – Ann, Netgalley
