It is two years since Eleanor Mace said farewell to her lover Christophe and returned to Devon.
Her bookshop in the sleepy seaside town of Combemouth has become the hub of the community and with the new love of her life, Daniel, everything seems to be blissfully plain sailing.
That is until Freya, Daniel’s ex-wife appears on the scene.
Hired as an architect for a major celebrity who plans to build an enormous new complex in Combemouth, Freya seeks Daniel’s help to get her ambitious scheme approved.
Outraged, Eleanor mounts a protest against the scheme – helped by some endangered local wildlife – that gets her noticed by the world’s media, but puts her at risk of losing Daniel.
As the campaign gains momentum, Eleanor is asked to speak at a conference in Spain, where she unexpectedly bumps into the handsome Christophe – a blast from her past.
Surely this must be fate?
Will Eleanor fall for the charms of her French ex-boyfriend, or can she find it in her heart to forgive Daniel and return to Combemouth?
Or is she set for ‘A Summer of Surprises’?
I was lucky enough to get a advance copy of this book and I absolutely loved it. This book is a sequel to ‘An Unexpected Affair’ and I loved catching up with Eleanor and the other characters from the previous book. I love the way the book is set out and there are some interesting characters thrown into the mix. I found the story entertaining and I did find myself chuckling on a few occasions. The ending is a good one as you will not be expecting it. I love the way Jan writes, and I look forward to more of her books in the future.
