If I had to sum this book up in one word, it would be Extraordinary.
Milly Johnson was born in Barnsley, raised in Barnsley and still lives in Barnsley - although she did study in Exeter for four years and emigrate to Haworth in West Yorkshire in the 1980s.
She trained as an actress, teacher, an accountant, a Customer Services and Suggestion Scheme Manager as well as working in a variety of administrative posts for companies dealing with anything from antique furniture to plastic injection moulded poop scoops. Eventually she found a happy existence writing poems and jokes for the greetings card world - helping to kick off the hugely successful Purple Ronnie project - which she still does on a part time basis whilst penning her novels.
When I read this story I wasn't sure if I missed the main character's name which in turn made me read it again, but still I couldn't find one. So, I think no name was given, although if I am wrong then I am very sorry! The story is set in Capri, a beautiful place to relax, even more so after a divorce. The scenery, the calmness and the peace, is prefect for forgetting all your problems, the main character has had a few of those, along with Adele who is going through the same situation. There is sun, hot guys and a lot of thinking about the past and the future, as all it takes is a short break to finally put everything into focus.
If I had to sum this book up in one word, it would be Reflective.

If I had to sum this book up in one word, it would be Incredible.
Another day, another book,
