Wrap up warm and explore the breath-taking beauty of a remote Scottish island and an old house waiting to unlock enchanting family secrets.

Do you need to find out where you've come from before you can know what the future holds?

Ruby's singing career is on the verge of hitting the big time, when her voice breaks. Fearing her career is over, she signs up for a retreat in Tenerife to recover.

But an unexpected call from a stranger on a remote Scottish island takes her on a short trip to sort out some family business. It's time to go and see the grandfather she's never met.

City girl Ruby knows she will be happy to leave the windswept beaches behind as quickly as she can, especially as a years-old family rift means she knows she won't be welcome at Teach Mhor.

But as she arrives at the big house overlooking the bay, she finds things are not as straightforward as she might have thought.

There's an unexpected guest in the house and he's not planning on going anywhere any time soon ...
'Rich, warm and sunny. A story that stays with you long after the last page is turned' Milly Johnson

Could the lemon groves of Sicily be the perfect place to start over? The irresistible new novel from Jo Thomas, the author of Sunset Over the Cherry Orchard, will transport you to the island of mountains and sparkling blue seas.

When life hands you lemons ... is it ever too late for a second chance?

Zelda's impulsive nature has got her precisely nowhere up until now. A fresh start in a beautiful hilltop town in Sicily looking for new residents, together with her best friend Lennie, could be just what she needs. And who better to settle down with than the person who knows her best?

But the sun-filled skies and sparkling seas can't hide the shadow hanging over Citta d'Ora, which means not everyone is pleased to see their arrival. The dreams Zelda and her fellow new residents had of setting up a new life might be slipping away. But a friendship with restauranteur Luca could be about to unlock the possibilities that lie in the local lemon groves. And there's a wedding on the horizon that might be just what the town needs to turn it around...

Could a summer in Sicily help Zelda learn to trust her instinct and follow her heart?
Dnes si můžete koupit on-line téměř všechno. Ruthie Collinsová se rozhodla pro statek v Itálii.

Když se Ruthie jednoho dne probudí a zjistí, že získala vysněný italský statek, její život se doslova obrátí vzhůru nohama. Okamžitě nasedne do auta a vydá se na cestu vstříc novému dobrodružství. Jakmile ale dorazí na místo, její romantické představy berou brzy za své. Vysněný dům je spíše polorozpadlá usedlost a sbližování se s novými sousedy, k nimž patří i bouřlivák Marko Bellanuovo, také není právě nejjednodušší. Romantický příběh plný vtipných situací od bestsellerové autorky.
