Synopsis

'Beautifully written, comforting and utterly uplifting, Lucy Coleman's stories are the perfect tonic when life is a little grey.' Holly Martin



Seren Maddison left behind a rainy Britain to follow her dreams and live and work in Lisbon. The vibrancy, the beautiful scenery and the sunshine, made her fall in love and she knew, instantly, that it would be her forever home.



International artist Reid Henderson has homes in Lisbon and London. Following his painful divorce, his dream is to turn his luxurious home into an art school and gallery.



When Seren and Reid first meet there is an instant attraction, but they are both people who have been hurt, and each have dreams that are so far apart, they aren't even on the same page.



Can they enjoy one summer of happiness together, as life bestows a gift of memories to cherish for the rest of their lives? Or is their destiny to chart a path into the future, in a home where dreams can come true?



Seren and Reid may be about to discover that love is as much about what you are prepared to give up, as what you are prepared to keep hold of.



Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to sun-drenched Portugal where true love really can conquer all, and home is where the heart is. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.

Customer Reviews

I love it when a book pops up on my kindle from a favourite author as I know I'm in for a great read and Lucy Coleman never disappoints. Seren Maddison has taken the leap to leave her job - and her life - in Britain to take up a new position in sunny Lisbon. Settling into the vibrant community and taking up the challenges of work and enjoying everything about the city soon makes Seren realise that she has found her forever home. When she meets Reid Henderson, international artist, through her latest - and ambitious - work project, there is definitely a spark there but neither of them wants to leap into a relationship as they've both been hurt in the past. Can they enjoy a summer romance or does life have different plans? What a perfect book to read as the weather here turns bitterly cold and distinctly wintery. I feel as if I've had a welcome break in the sunshine. This author always writes beautifully about overseas destinations and yet again has made me wish I was there myself. With rounded characters who are fully developed and entirely realistic, this is such a lovely story and I imagine that, in these times of travel restrictions, many readers will be planning a future trip to Portugal once we're out of lockdown. A well-paced, quite delightful novel and one which raised my spirits considerably and easily earns all five shining stars!
