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  (  is currently on the bestsellers list here in Ireland. It is also set in Spain. I look forward to reading it.
