Publisher's Summary

In a beautiful Southern Spanish town, where the sea sparkles and orange blossoms scent the air, the gates of a brand-new apartment complex, La Joya deAndalucía, glide open to welcome the new owners.

Anna and Austen MacDonald, an Irish couple, are preparing to enjoy their retirement to the full. But the demands of family cause problems they have never foreseen and shake their marriage to the core.

Sally-Ann Connolly Cooper, a feisty Texan mother of two young teenagers, is reeling from her husband's infidelity. La Joya becomes a place of solace for Sally-Ann, in more ways than one.

Eduardo Sanchez, a haughty Madrileño, has set out with single-minded determination to become El Presidente of the complex's management committee. But pride comes before a fall.

Jutta Sauer Perez, a sophisticated German who aspires to own her very own apartment in La Joya, works hard to reach her goal. Then the unthinkable happens.

As their lives entwine and friendships and enmities develop, it becomes apparent that La Joya is not quite the haven they all expect it to be....

    "a long story that didn't really go anywhere"

    Verging on late middle aged. Like sagas with good stories and happy ending! Like those set in Asia or Australia (Bryce Courtenay especially)

    "Life in the sun"
    Where does Orange Blossom Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty good. Good story. Kept my attention. I used to live in Spain so wanted so made me want to go back and live there again. The Spanish was pretty good and easily translatable if necessary. The characters were believable but hated the voice used for the Texans☹️


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anna. I'm Irish! she made me homesick and wishing I was back in Dublin!


    Which character – as performed by Jilly Bond – was your favourite?

    As above


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Paradise found and lost
