Follow your heart and then your dreams…

Best friends since childhood, Fern Chambers and Stella Shaw have been through everything together and are at a crossroads in their lives. Carefree Stella has a monumental secret and put upon Fern’s happy life is not all it seems.

With their 40th birthdays approaching, a luxury holiday to the island of Capri is a chance for them to reconnect, let their hair down and celebrate in style. But untold truths and frustration bubble beneath the surface, turning what should be a holiday of a lifetime into an opportunity to make life-changing decisions.

Far from home, where anything feels possible, secrets are revealed, heartache is shared, love discovered and new friendships forged.

Will their Italian dream turn into a nightmare or lead to newfound happiness?

My Thoughts…

Stella and Fern, longtime friends, are off on holiday with their daughters, thanks to Stella’s good fortune. Capri is idyllic and full of glamourous fun, but Stella has a secret that threatens her friendship with Fern. I enjoyed the vivid descriptions of Capri, the food and the sights and adventures the women have. The characters are believably flawed, and Stella is hard to like, but this makes the story realistic and relevant.

There’s conflict, forgiveness, new friendships and romance in a lovely holiday setting, the perfect beach read.
