Summary

The breathtaking new novel from Sunday Times best-selling Sheila O'Flanagan, author of The Missing Wife and What Happened That Night. Perfect for readers of Catherine Alliott and Marian Keyes. 

What would you do if you discovered you were living a lie?

When a shocking news report shatters Juno Ryan's world, she suddenly finds herself without the man she loves - and with no way of getting the answers she so desperately needs.

A distraught Juno flees to the enchanting Villa Naranja in Spain. The blue skies and bountiful orange groves - along with Pep, the winemaker's handsome son - begin to soothe her broken heart, but only Juno herself can mend it.

Just when she begins to feel whole again another bombshell falls. Can Juno put the past behind her? And will she ever learn to trust herself again?

Feel good book

If ever I want a feel good book, I always turn to Sheila O'Flanagan, especially if narrated by Aoife McMahon. Such a great combination. I have enjoyed every O'Flanagan book listened to so far, some more than others, but this was among the most enjoyable, and Aoife McMahons voice is just perfect.

Performance

The book was read to quickly and was quite flat. Slowing the speed slurred the reading so the reading was too fast and expressionless

Not the best

I was very disappointed with this book. Slow with not much of a story line. Had to force myself to finish it. Usually I love this author

The Hideaway

I had been waiting for this book. The story lacks a lot. There is a cat as part of the story and she went on about the cat in so many places. Just phrases like she got the cat food to put in the bowl for it. I am finally up to about three quarters of the way but skipped a bit. It is starting to get interesting now. The story will probably appeal to anyone who likes cats.
