In theory, nothing could be better than a summer spent basking in the French sun. That is, until you add in three teenagers, two love interests, one divorcing couple, and a very unexpected pregnancy.
Admittedly, this isn’t exactly the relaxing holiday Leah Beaumont was hoping for – but it’s the one she’s got. With her sister Michele’s family falling apart at the seams, it’s up to Leah to pick up the pieces and try to hold them all together.
But with a handsome helicopter pilot staying next door, Leah can’t help but think she might have a few distractions of her own to deal with…
When Michele asked her sister Leah to come along with her family to a vacation, she hesitated a bit, but decided to go. Michele and her husband are getting divorced, but with two teenagers, she needed her sister to be there for everyone’s sake. In France Leah is thrown into a situation she never expected-her sister is pregnant and went away for a while with the father of her child while Leah has to take care of the rest of the family. As one situation happens after another, there’s one thing that brightens Leah’s days and that’s a handsome neighbor Ronan, who has a teenage son himself. How’s the vacation going to continue and what happens afterwords they leave France?
It was my first book by the author, but definitely won’t be my last, I really enjoyed the writing style and how the characters and the setting was brought to life. It shows a real family with real issues and how life is with teenagers. It’s a great summer read that whisks you away to France. If you like emotional family story in a gorgeous setting it’s a great book for you.
