review 1: This is why I love short stories. It has all the trappings of a fantastic novel. The simplicity being that it is short, leaves the reader wanting more. I went into it with very little knowledge and was quite happy with that approach. I loved the sweeping narrative of our protagonist in her description of "Paradise". There was a bit of everything packed into this one: romance, intrigue and suspense.
review 2: I was transported to Paris then to a little island off Cannes as I read this story, a lovely afternoon's relaxation. Genevieve and Paul meet again at the Hotel Paradise after 12 years and she relives her past affair with the man she thought was the love of her life. The descriptions are so sensual, intense and immediate that the reader absorbs the Mediterra
... morenean ambience, filled with joy, passion, drama and grief. You can almost see and smell the dusty rooms, the herbs in the garden, the sea crashing on the rocks, the vivid sunshine ... Lovely book with a satisfying depth to the final message. less

Very quick read. More of a short story really. Enjoyable though and certainly a poolside book.
Not my usual fare but a nice little story.
I just could not get into this book.
Good summer read.
