Publisher's Summary

Four people looking for love. Four choices that could be the start of everything.

At thirty-three, nurse Heather is desperately waiting for her romantic life to begin. Then she meets handsome, strong Anthony and is sure she’s found the one. Brushing any doubts aside, she projects all her hopes for true love onto him. 

Meanwhile, at a yoga retreat in Spain, happy-go-lucky Joe can’t believe his luck when he meets vivacious, witty Amy. She’s the sharpest, most beautiful woman he has ever dated, and the fact that she’s interested in him feels like a dream come true. 

But new love can be blind, and when the two couples meet, the cracks are easy to see.

Will their crossed paths lead the way to happiness? Or are they all destined for heartbreak?

So glad I discovered Nick Alexander

I’m so glad I discovered this author. This was a story with a lot of heart. I truly enjoyed all the characters even Ant who wasn’t the nicest guy. The Narration was great. If you listen and have small children around there are a few scenes that shouldn’t be heard by small ears. This book would make a great beach read if you’re lucky enough to be near water. For me it was a great kick off to summer. I will be looking to read another Nick Alexander very soon.

*The Grass is not always Greener*

This book is about two couples and predominantly focusses on Heather and Joe with input by Amy.

Ant and Heather
They are not married and have two daughters. Ant is controlling and difficult and undermines Heather to the point she is isolated and has lost confidence in herself. She constantly tries to keep the peace by trying to appease him.

Joe and Amy
He is easy going but plain speaking but he has what he thinks is the girl of his dreams in Amy but he struggles to make her happy. Amy seems to be constantly finding new avenues, guru’s etc and she is happy for a while and then she is unhappy.

Things change when one of Ant and Heather’s children wants to go on holiday with one of their schoolmates Ben, he is the son of Joe and Amy who Heather has never met, but Ant knows them due to Joe fitting kitchens for the properties Joe owns.

To cut a long story short they all end up go going on holiday and the cracks start to appear whilst on holiday when Heather wakes up in the early hours and finds Ant not beside her she goes to investigate. What she discovers should be one of your worst nightmares but as time goes on Heather is relieved.

The fallout means Joe is devastated and Heather is free. Ant and Amy leave for the U.K. while Joe and Heather are left to pick up the pieces.

Strangely enough a new couple emerge while one pairing goes by the wayside.

What happens is that the new couple are each other soulmates and we see them both grow especially Heather she finds herself and she evolves. Amy has to deal with her demons and Joe is the happiest he has ever been. As for Ant he continues with his full of his own self importance routine.

This book took me by surprise because it shows the different dynamics that relationships go through and I have to say the resilience of the children in this story is a thing of beauty.

Easy listening romance

Loved the story despite being completely predictable. Was nice easy listening at bed time. Only problems I faced was with the narration; which due to switching between characters during dialogue seemed a bit disjointed. Also the authors constant use of "he said" "she said" when listening to the audio version becomes rather irritating.

Slow to start but an enjoyable story.

I listened to this as an audio book. It took quite a while to get into and I nearly stopped, but it hung around in my mind until I picked it back up again.
It was quite a different set up from what I'm used to and a little confusing to begin with but I'm very glad that I did go back to it as I enjoyed the story.

Synopsis was misleading

It was OK. I liked how the narration switched between characters. Story a bit depressing
