A totally absorbing, wonderful novel of interlinking characters and their relationships; of love, heartache and loss all in the glorious South of France. You feel the heat, the colour, the emotions, the pain, the laughter and the tears. My only criticism is that it all ended rather abruptly â€¦ I wanted more, it was such a lovely book; please read it. Comparison: Sophie Kinsella, Lisa Jewell, Plum Sykes. Similar this month: Belinda Jones, Chris Manby.
