Four hundred and twenty pearls hand sewn onto the wedding dress. The Mediterranean honeymoon booked for months. A pile of presents bigger than Everest. And her lovely Tim, the most perfect bridegroom a girl could wish for. Except, two weeks before the wedding, he changes his mind...Isobel's wedding is off. Her world in tatters, Isobel turns to Spain, a new job, a new life and as many men as she can decently manage. Including the very appealing Nico with whom, she feels, there could be a long-term future. But part of Isobel knows that she will have to go back home some day. And that, despite all that's happened since she left, she still has unfinished business....

I had assumed that the release date on the site was the date of publication - no! This was actually published in the last century; back in the day when no one had a mobile phone, had heard of the internet and smoked in pubs etc etc etc, so it was hard to get into a story that doesn’t reflect the social norms of today.
