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…
I would like to say thank you to Lovereading for sending me this book. I had heard of Patricia Scanlan before but never read any of her books. There is alot going on in this book with each chapter as a different person or couple. There were some stories I wasn’t too keen on but I really enjoyed Anna and Austin’s story and Sally-Ann and Cal’s story. It was a bit of a shame too to see a few spelling mistakes in the story too. The cover looked amazing and I could really imagine myself there in the warmth of the sun.
