From Southport to the South of France – this is going to be a summer to remember!
Life just got a whole lot more complicated for thirty-eight-year-old single mum Liv. Her son Jake is practically perfect in every way, but he’s started asking some difficult questions, and the answers lie in a holiday romance twenty years ago. Back when Liv was staying with her aunt on the French Riviera…
Returning to the Cote d’Azur, with its white sandy beaches, her supportive aunt, and exquisite wine and cheese is harder than it sounds though. Because – if she’s going to give Jake the answers he needs – Liv knows she has to hunt down her first love Andre. And since she’s a professional baker rather than a professional investigator, she doesn’t even have a clue where to start.
At first, finding the one that got away proves even trickier than she thought. And if she succeeds, how will he take the bombshell secret Liv has been keeping? Liv has to do the best thing for her family, but does that mean closing the door on this very French affair?
When I feel like going on a holiday, but cannot afford to take the time off, there is one great solution for me that works every time. I pick a book by this author. She has taken me on trips to Italy and Greece and it feels like she has become my digital travel agent. 😊
Each and every book is gorgeous. The author makes me feel like I am there too and I feel can the warmth, not only provided by the sun, but by the lovely stories as well. I am not reading them. I am living them. I know it’s fiction, but somehow it does warm my heart when people find their one even for some it takes years. Better late then never, right? Better spending fewer years with your true love than spending a life time with someone you muddle on with.
So after have accompanied her characters on trips to Greece and Italy, it was time now to pack my virtual bags and hop on a plane once again. This time Liv and Faye are my travel companions. They are visiting Liv’s aunt who runs a bakery. Destination: Antibes in the south of France.
I would suggest you read this book when you have just eaten, because if not you are going to faint with longing. The dishes and pastries that are described are just to die for and I swear I could smell them too.
Liv has two goals when she steps on that plane. One is a lot more easy to achieve. Will she succeed in fulfilling the second one as well?
Book your ticket, pack your suitcase and come on this adventure too. I loved it. 5 stars
