Summary

Does a rambling Spanish villa hold the key to love? No. 1 Irish best seller Emma Hannigan returns with her heartwarming new novel. If you like Cathy Kelly and Patricia Scanlan, and enjoyed the film Under a Tuscan Sun, you will love this.

Restoring a Spanish villa brings Shelly back to the place she and her husband once loved, fulfilling the promise he made that they would return. But as plans to transform the villa into a romantic wedding venue take shape, Shelly discovers her children may need the move more than she does. Her son Jake has begun to question the things he values most: his career as a pilot, his relationship with his girlfriend. Could Spain offer him the change he's seeking? Shelly's daughter Leila arrives with a new-born baby in tow, but then hears some startling news she wasn't expecting. As Casa Maria takes its first booking, will it turn out to be more than a romantic promise made all those years ago? Perhaps a second chance at new beginnings?
