This summer will change everything!

Aria Summers knows what she wants.

A life on the road with best friend Rosie and her beloved camper-van-cum-book-shop, and definitely, definitely, no romance.

But when Aria finds herself falling – after one too many glasses of wine, from a karaoke stage – into the arms of Jonathan, a part of her comes back to life for the first time in years.

Since her beloved husband died Aria has sworn off love, unless it’s the kind you can find in the pages of a book. One love of her life is quite enough.

And so Aria tries to forget Jonathan and sets off for a summer to remember in France. But could this trip change Aria’s life forever…?

Joy, Laughter – and Tissues!!      stars 4


What a lovely read! Despite not having read the first book in series (I do have it, just never managed to slot it in!) this is a fabulous stand-alone read.

Aria and her friend Rosie are about to travel with the Van Lifers, heading to France for the summer. If there’s one thing Aria is certain of, it’s that she’s not looking for romance; she’s had the one true love of her life and doesn’t want another. Until she meets Jonathan and finds that her feelings seem to be thawing out . . .

I love the thought of travelling around as Aria and Rosie do – although, in all honesty, I’d never do it myself.  It’s a wonderful way to see the sights and make a living at the same time! Be prepared to have the tissues close to hand with this one though – there are a few teary moments in amongst the joy and laughter. A very touching novel, beautifully written and hitting all the right notes. I’ve really enjoyed this one and it is well worth four stars.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
