Tess Barton is stuck in a rut. She’s working three jobs while trying to get her career as an artist off the ground... and now her sister wants her to run a marathon too?! No thank you!

But it’s not just any marathon. It’s the Barcelona marathon and they’d be running in memory of their late sister. She's ready for her flight but when disaster strikes and Emma can’t make it, Tess finds herself facing a new city and challenge all alone. That is, until an unexpected rendezvous in a little tapas bar with gorgeous Spaniard Roberto.

Facing the unknown Tess laces up her trainers, determined to master the marathon... and maybe find love in the city by the sea at the same time.

Tess is your least likely marathon running candidate. Until she promises her sister to help her train, and ends up entered in the Barcelona marathon herself. 

Tess is a massive fan of Gaudi and has always wanted to visit Barcelona, so she agrees on the proviso she will be able to fit in some sightseeing. 

What she doesn't expect is her heart to be stolen both by the city and a man. 

For her first acquaintance in the city will be her most important and he acts as a tour guide over the next few pages. 

I loved Roberto's knowledge of all the main tourist spots in the city  by the sea, as well as some of those off the beaten track. 

With a mix of culture, sport, running and food, this is the perfect way to view the city, without leaving your armchair!

From the first few pages I was captivated by the story.  Delighted to see this new book by Lilac Mills and I am eager to see her next release already. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Canelo for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
