Liz Frazer packs up her job in Dublin and flees to Fuengirola in Southern Spain where she finds refuge in a beautiful little hotel right on the beach – Casa Clara.
This book is very well written and in a way that makes it so easy to read. Emma is the central character and there is no flitting from character to character. The story progresses well and at a good pace. While it was a simple storyline there were a few twists on the way so it wasn’t totally predictable.
I enjoyed it as I have holidayed in the Costa del Sol so it was easy to picture the lifestyle and haven’t we all dreamed of running off to a life in the sun at some stage?
I have also read Forever Friends and The Book Club by this author. Both were also very enjoyable. I would recommend this book for light reading. Perfect for a holiday or a relaxing afternoon. I find her books nice and a light read after a day at work when I don’t want to face into a heavy read.
Her new book Magnolia Park (http://poolbeg.com/fiction/magnolia-park-detail.html) is currently on the bestsellers list here in Ireland. It is also set in Spain. I look forward to reading it.
