A gentle, warm story of friendship, love and making the most out of life. This is a slightly different offering by Jane L. Gibson to her previous fantasy romance ‘A Different Reflection’. ‘The Gessami Residence’ is a pleasant, occasionally cheeky and lighthearted story, where 43 year old widow Jenny and her three down to earth friends, find themselves on an extraordinary holiday. ‘The Gessami Residence’ is on the lengthy side, Jenny tells her own story, giving a blow by blow account of the events that occur. Friendship plays an important part, and the support that close girlfriends can offer in particular, while the romance element adds an almost fairytale quality to proceedings, helping to make this an easy sunny read. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Gessami Residence by Jane L. Gibson

Jenny has endured three fairly miserable years following the sudden death of her husband, Paul. At forty three - with her sons at university - the only thing keeping her sane are her three best friends Amanda, Beth and Rose. After deciding that what they really need is a girl's trip away, they escape their uneventful lives on a holiday. After all, forty somethings still like to drink, flirt, have meaningless sex and enjoy themselves - right? Rose organises the trip and keeps the details secret until they meet at the airport, but she shocks them with her destination choice - Ibiza. Reluctantly they set off, but on arrival it's immediately apparent they have every intention of enjoying themselves to the maximum. After the first night of heavy drinking, Jenny, feeling the pace, has to excuse herself and return to their 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 them all to dinner, for a trip on his yacht and to spend a week of their holiday at his new boutique hotel, 'The Gessami Residence'. Ethan is not what Jenny was expecting from this holiday, but the more time she spends with him and their friends, the more she realises all she has missed since her husband died.
