What if – to find yourself – you had to run away?
Last year was meant to be Holly’s year. But she’s still stuck in a job that’s going nowhere, and a relationship that feels more like it’s going backwards… this year Holly has decided it’s time to change her life. She just has to:
- End the relationship with the commitment-phobic boyfriend
- Go on a proper adventure
- Learn to be herself again
- Definitely, categorically not fall in love.
With all her belongings in her little yellow Mini, Holly sets off for Spain, to stay at a remote Andalusian farmhouse. But on arrival she nearly crashes into the gorgeous Matias. And much to Holly’s irritation, their paths keep crossing. Because as she practices Spanish with the locals, finally starts plans for her own design business, and sips sangria in the sunlit village square, Holly is beginning to remember who she is and what she wants.
So she won’t allow Matias to distract her. Because this year – for Holly – there are more important things in life than love. And she won’t let yet another bad relationship ruin everything… will she?
A moving and uplifting romantic comedy about living each moment and learning to trust yourself again, for fans of Jenny Hale, Debbie Macomber, and Sophie Kinsella.
