The third romance novel from TV personality Georgia Toffolo (better known as Toff), following Meet Me in London, and Meet Me in Hawaii, sees travel writer Zoe having to deal with life-changing decisions, something she’s more than familiar with. After a car accident left her unable to walk, and having had her heart broken by bad boy Finn (with her wealthy, protective parents a constant presence), she’s now based in a luxury Tahitian resort for work. And then Finn reappears in unexpected circumstances, and Zoe has a whole lot of soul-searching on her hands. Of course, the glamourous setting is a boon - what’s not to enjoy about a fictional escape to the French Polynesian islands? That said, I’m not sure Zoe’s experience is truly representative of the life of a typical travel writer, but that’s not the point - this is pure escapism, a book for the beach; a book to be transported by on a cold, rainy day; a warm and well-intentioned, universal tale about weighing up second chances.
