"A sizzling summer read" promises the quote on the front of this novel. Well, the temperatures of late have been far from sizzling, but this book proved the perfect antidote to the winter blues. As a late Christmas present, I was given it on New Year's Day after saying how much I'd enjoyed another book by this author. I finished it within four days - huddled in front of the fire, eeking out the last of the winter break before the dreaded return to the office. Allowing pure escapism into a world where men are handsome and noble, and dreams really do come true, the book rattles along at a good pace as it documents a family holiday in France - but this ...

Before I begin explaining the plot of this book let me take you back a few weeks to Mothers Day. Why you ask? Well this was when a dilemma faced me regarding my favourite Author Fiona Walker. After making huge hints to my husband about the books I have yet to buy that Fiona Walker has wrote I patiently waited for my new book as a gift for Mothers Day. The previous night I decided to go Tesco shopping (stick with me here there is a point to all of this) and found a reduced book for £2.99 written by, yes I bet you can guess who by. It was previously priced at £5.99. The shopping list went out the window so to speak, as I was so happy with my bargain that I ... Read the complete review

I must admit straight away that I tend to drift towards being a romantic. And although I tend to readily pick up any book that suggests a happy loved up ending, I usually get bored of the same old story mid way and it invariably ends up on the 'to be finished' pile. However, this book screams out its originality. Full of delerious sexed up scenes that will keep you day dreaming for hours, this book is one that can not be put down. Fiona Walker goes one step beyond Jilly Cooper, as she not only keeps her female readers constantly in drippy awe but manages to replace Jilly's horrid and mean characters with gorgeous cruel men who in the end we all end up loving and wishing .

After reading other Fiona Walker books which I absolutley love I knew I had to read it and going off her other books I knew it would be a good read! Tash French ( the main character) is one many people can relate to - normal, clumsy, doesnt always get it right but is completley loveable. There are quite a few characters set on a big family holiday- some far too gorgeous, some annoying, others eccentric which all combined together makes for a humerous read which had me laughing out loud at times. I was hooked from the first chapter and found it hard to put it down and kept saying to myself 'just one more chapter'. I didnt want the story to end but looked forward ... Read the complete review

It's a summer of love in this Fiona Walker book. A family party held my Alexandra French, brings together the family again in their magical old French villa. With the sun beating down at least one couple will fall in love, and it might not be with who you expect. Thrown in for good measure are the misadventures of Tash French and her new horse snob, as they battle to be ready for the equestrian event. This book is perfect for the beach or poolside on a hot day. Sometimes it is very hard to follow becuase there are that many characters (Tash, Alexandra, Pascal, Matty, Sally, Amanda, Hugo, Ben, Sophia, Marcus, Michael, Cass, Olly, Ginger, Valerie, Jean, Todd, Algy, ...
