A hidden past is uncovered and shocking truths are revealed. But life goes on. Kat and Philippe welcome their first B&B guests to the Villa and continue to be busy with other demands, all the while keeping hope alive as police search for their friend.

A special request from Simone and an unexpected appearance turn a planned motorcycle trip in Corsica into so much more. Springtime at the Villa des Violettes is filled with secrets and surprises.

“No matter what obstacle or heartbreak is put in our paths, we alone choose to be happy. No one else makes that choice for us.” With everything surrounding Katherine and Philippe as they come close to their 1st wedding anniversary, their long held dream of Villa des Violettes as a small guest inn is about to come true! They’ve hurdled many obstacles but the time has arrived. But will they be successful? Between their friend Delphine’s disappearance bringing a world wide horror almost to their doorstep and completing the outbuilding and the garden, Kat continues to hone her photography towards a small showing, while Philippe works the cheese shoppe and tries to surprise her whenever he can. Between the dogs, the cats and soon the chickens it truly is their dream come true! Patricia Sands is a marvelous writer. Thanks to her, I can settle in to armchair travels to a place I’ve always wanted to go: France. This trip we get to go to Grasse- an area I’ve always wanted to go since I fell in love with Coco Chanel as a teenager- and Corsica. I had no idea outside of Napoleon what Corsica was about. I highly recommend this book and all the others she has written: gentle, sweet books that will have you dreaming of France for a long time to come! Highly Recommended 5/5 [disclaimer: I received this book from the author and voluntarily reviewed it]

I loved Patricia Sand's Love in Provence series and I love that she has taken two of my favorite characters from that series and enriched their stories. This book takes us back to the Villa des Violettes for another beautiful season. Everything is starting to bloom and the Villa is welcoming their first guests. With this book, we get to know the characters even better, as well getting to know more about the people they have come to care about and love. Kat and Philippe are such warm and loving people and have surrounded themselves with a wonderful community of friends. Patricia's books are written with such beautiful, descriptive passages that I feel like I am there, enjoying the sights and smells, and tasting the delectable dishes right along with Kat and Philippe. This series is the perfect escape read and I always feel like I am vacationing when I dive into one of the stories. It is so hard to come back home and I look forward to taking another trip back.
