Franny Marten is expecting to have dinner with her boyfriend. Instead, she meets the wife she didn't know he had. The two women become friends. Both go to Provence when an invitation for a family reunion is sent to Franny. Both are thinking they need to get away. Both find more than they thought they would when they arrive.
Franny knows things are about to end with her boyfriend, Marcus. She doesn't expect Marcus' wife, Clare, to be the one to end things for him. That surprise is followed by the two hitting it off. Soon after, Franny receives an invitation from France. A relative she didn't know about is hosting a family reunion and wants her to go- all expenses paid. Franny decides to go and asks Clare to go with her.
A handsome man brings his dog into Franny's veterinary office. What she doesn't know is that Jake Bronson is on a fact-finding mission of sorts. Neither of them expected to feel so much, so soon. However, things are a little bumpy.
I enjoyed this book. I had never read a book by Elizabeth Adler, but I will be reading more of her work. I loved the descriptions of France. I loved meeting and getting to know a village of people. I loved the characters, both the good ones and the not so good ones. This was one of the books I didn't want to put down.
Rafeala, Franny's Aunt, has a story that was amazing all on it's own. Rafeala herself was amazing. In fact, all of the book's secondary characters are fun to read. From Rafeala's two sons to her long lost best friend. From the butler, to the villagers- I loved them all. I hated to see the book come to an end.
