I received a copy of this book from the publisher.
Character-driven yet full of immersive location details, this enemy-to-lover romance has believably flawed characters, emotion, humour, passion and poignancy. Daisy inherits a rundown house in Provence from a distant relative; she leaves her high-powered career to oversee the renovations. Gabriel has lived in the house; after being taken in by its owner, he expected to inherit, but a missing will meant Daisy, not Gabriel, was the new owner.
The animosity and attraction simmer from the couple’s first meeting. Proximity allows Daisy and Gabriel to get to know each other, challenging their preconceptions and emotional issues about love and relationships.
I like the sensitive balance of humour and heartbreaking moments, the character development and the vibrant setting that makes this a lovely Summer read.
