A brilliant community, new friends, Long sunny days, new dreams without ends. A farmhouse, an olive grove and even a goat, too, Sounds idyllic to me - does it to you? Jamie and Charlotte have been together for years Who'd guess this move would end with them in tears. Is this really a dream or a nightmare instead? Should they return home to Chester or stay in the Med? This is a story of being brave and taking a chance With new opportunities and possible romance. It is about joining in a new community, too, And fitting in with others whilst somewhere new. A heartwarming read that could well inspire you To consider your life and just what you'll do. Sometimes finding your new home means changing And aspects of your life and relationships rearranging. It is a fun read that I enjoyed from the start Even though there's a danger of a broken heart. For my complementary copy, I say thank you, Such a heartwarming read and this is my honest review.
Buying a rundown cottage in Greece. A crazy, wine-fuelled idea, or the best decision she’s ever made?
Charlotte takes in the scene. To the left, her (ex?) fiancé’s retreating back as he runs back to civilisation; in front, the crumbling Greek island farmhouse she thought was their shared dream; and just below, a goat munching merrily on her sunhat…
At first, Jamie had leapt at Charlotte’s idea to permanently swap drizzly Chester for sun-drenched Crete. Now it looks like she’ll be living this dream alone. Devastated but determined, she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work turning the ramshackle house into her forever home. At least the local community welcomes her with open arms, including sexy restaurant-owner-slash-handyman, Darius.
Taking a sledgehammer to her old life, and snacking on homemade honey cake on her breaks, Charlotte begins to see the promise of a future without Jamie. But on a trip back home, he suddenly appears, wanting her back. Faced with a choice between the first love who broke her heart and the gorgeous Greek man who has been putting it back together, how will Charlotte choose where she truly belongs?
A totally laugh-out-loud and feel-good summer read about taking a chance on life and love! Perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and My Mamma Mia Summer.
Sue Roberts lives in Lancashire with her long term partner Derek and has had a lifelong love of writing, encouraged by winning a school writing competition at the age of 11.
She always assumed that ‘one day’ she would write a book, always having a busy household and a job, the idea remained firmly on the back burner but never forgotten.
The inspiration for her first novel came to her on a holiday to a Greek village. Her daughters had left home and suddenly the time had come to write that book!
