My Review: What a lovely visit to the French Riviera, I loved finding out what happened next with Gabby, Harriet and Elodie. I fell in love with Lulu the Tibetian Terrier and could near enough smell the fresh bread and clean air. There are new beginnings, a line of rebuilding relationships that had been fractured through decisions made in the past. Elodie in particular has questions, discoveries and a new world ahead of her. With the wine, love, and sunsets. whats not to love? I feel all warm and cosey now. Thank you, sorry for being so late with my review

PS: loved seeing the name Fiona in the book.
