Always happy to be transported to sunnier climates, but especially with the weather we’ve been having lately in the UK! Helga Jensen transport us to both Venice and Wales, painting a beautiful scene for both places whilst also putting her characters through an emotional wringer!

A realistic plot that challenges the readers morals and values, highlights the difficulties small businesses face especially in a wet and windy January, and the challenges of sustaining young love twenty five years on. Add in the characters you’ll love, and the ones you won’t, and it’s a brilliant, escapist novel with a lovely underlying theme of second chances and what if’s.

About the Book

Venice was where it all began…

Libby and Will spent a glorious honeymoon in this magical city. They didn’t have much money, but they had a whole lot of love and a bright future ahead of them.

And Venice was where it all went wrong…

Two kids and twenty-five years later, they are struggling with money problems but somehow Will manages to fulfil his promise to Libby to take her back to Venice for their anniversary. This time, they are doing it in style and a masked ball awaits. But among the beautiful buildings and romantic canals, Libby learns that her husband has a secret that breaks her heart.

The trust is broken and the marriage is over. But there are decades of love and two grown sons between them.

Can they ever find their way back to each other or have they missed their chance forever?
