Book Review - Our Summer Together by Fanny Blake - #HolidayReading 17

Book 17 of 30 that I read on my holiday to Fuerteventura in December 2017

Caro knows how to be a mother - advising her grown-up daughters on career and relationship worries. She knows how to be a grandmother - enjoying the hectic energy of her three-year-old grandson. She knows how to be a daughter - helping her aging mother retain her independence.

She thought she knew everything about being a wife, but when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman, everything is thrown in the air. So, when a chance meeting introduces her to Damir - younger, intriguing and attentive - she realises that opening up to a man so different from everyone else in her life, might also mean getting to know who she really is...

Great story about finding love in your later years of your life, whether it will last forever or just one summer. 

Really enjoyed this story, which was well written, and evidently really well researched given the background for Damir. 

I wasn't too keen on the rather selfish grown up daughters, but could understand why they were behaving like they were, 

This is just a really sweet story that I wish I had read when I wasn't feeling very ill, and thus may have enjoyed even more. 

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