Newly divorced and bought out of her company, Nathalie rents a holiday home in the South of France. After years of hard work and a failed marriage in Chicago, she’s looking for some peace and quiet, a place to clear her mind and figure out her future. Lena loves women, her dog, and landscaping, but that’s about as complicated as it gets. When she meets her new tenant for the summer, it proves hard to stay professional as a caretaker, especially when that tenant turns out to be everything she ever wanted and more.

I enjoyed watching the characters finf each other. There were some truly hilarious moments, like why would you ever think to do such things, but they got thru them all with some grace. Good job to the author there. I had mixed feelings on the narrator tho. Her tone and pitch for one of the characters was too young, which detracted from the character. But overall, good book!

I been rocking with CT for a long time and I usually love her stuff. It was a decent book but there were just too many things wrong for me. The story had great promise and I was all on board but the characters fizzled out. They had awesome chemistry throughout the entire book, but one sex scene :( And then the anticlimactic ending :( :( I expected more, seemed a little rushed and a cop out really. The narration was decent but I couldn't imagine the both of these highly intelligent, beautiful sounding, fierce acting sounding like somewhat airhead at times. I think the pitch is what through me for a loop. Like I said, decent book, but I wanted more! As a loyal fan, I'll keep on with the keep on!

Enjoyed this book immensely! I liked the narration, which brought the story and its emotions out, the characters, who had great depth and chemistry, and the story overall. My only gripe about the plot is some of it didnt seem realistic at all, but hey, a bit of fantasy never hurt nobody. I would definitely listen to this author/narrator again!!

I enjoyed listening to this book. The plot touched on difficult topics in life but was graceful, informative, and engaging. It felt realistic and i could relate having dealt with this in my family life.The narration was also very good and brought the story to life. I liked the chemistry between the characters as well as the dynamics of the families. Overall, great book! I will continue to read/listen to this author as i haven't been disappointed yet.

Im usually very easy going about reviews because i can always find something good about a book but this book was awful to me! I think the plot had great potential but the author just kept throwing random things in the way!! At some points, i just scratched my head, like huh and why!! he characters didnt really have any chemistry or make sense to me, lack of depth also. I almost felt schizophrenic moving through the scenes. And to top it all off, the narration was the nail in the coffin. Im not sure if they listened to the audio for editing before completion but there were a ton of repeated lines. the range of voices was just horrible, and the inflection and pronunciation of words was just off. he narration made the book that much worse. I think i've said enough.
