MY REVIEW


It's always good to reconnect with characters that you enjoyed reading about in a previous book, so it was wonderful to go back to see how Alice is getting on with her big move to Portugal and it didn't disappoint! It really centres around the doubts that play in her mind - yep, that inner voice that we all have in our head that tells us we've done the wrong thing, or we should have done things differently - and Alice is no different and there's an awful lot for her to take on board in this book.


From finding somewhere to live and invest her money, to taking on more business wise and to dealing with new arrivals in the life of Luis, her boyfriend, life seems to be throwing a million things her way so there seems little chance of her getting the slower pace of life she always dreamed of when she was back in England.  But she's not one to turn down new business opportunities and grabs chances when they come calling!


What I love about Alice is her determination! Despite constant knockbacks and her dream properties seemingly being snatched away from her at the last minute, she never gives up hope of finding the perfect place for her new life to continue.  And there's always her mum on the end of the phone to give her the best advice and Aphrodite the cat to give her companionship!


With a million things all happening at once, you just want her to find her happy with Luis and get the stability she craves!  And I'm just hoping we'll be getting more from Alice and her Portugese life in the not too distant future!  Enjoyable and heart warming!!
