I didn't know this was a rewritetill the end but it explained why book seemed a bit uneven in places. I read these novels for the feeling of being back in France and enjoying the ambience of wandering around its markets and eating delicious food in delightful cáfes. I'm not sure if post-Brexit it is as easy to move to France and set up a business but as the original novel was written prior to UK's departure I'll overlook this detail. Nicola was married to Marc, a French charity worker, they had a son, Oliver but family life wasn't enough for Marc. He needed to be helping people in need and decided to work for an Overseas crisis charity. He still came home to see his family but eventually encouraged Nicola to divorce him so she could get on with her life. For Nicola looking after Oliver was her life. An earthquake in Italy resulted in Marc's death, his body was taken to his father 's farm near Nice, denying Nicola and Oliver a final closure. A few months later Henri, Marc's father asks Nicola to come to France as there are things they need to discuss. Well we have to get Nicola and Oliver to France so story can begin. A lot of the action takes place off stage and is reported but it's an easy read and absorbing enough. And it brought back holiday memories of Nice in a time of travel uncertainty.
I love all Jennifer Bohnet books especially this one the first time that I bought it. I was so looking forward to this new book so extremely disappointed when I realised immediately that I had already read it. Feel a bit cheated to be honest
