This novel begins with Kat hurrying back to Toronto after a friend is hurt in an accident and while there, she has doubts about leaving her old life behind. In the second half of the book, she returns to France and we get to revel in the beauty of the scenery, the food and the lifestyle in Antibes, France.
I enjoyed this novel because it felt like visiting old friends and getting caught up in the bliss and culture that makes living in France so enjoyable. The food, the markets, the friends. Sands writes about all of them in great detail, transporting readers to the South of France. Her characters are realistic and feel like people I would like to share a meal with, luckily, since I do get to join them for some fabulous meals.
I would recommend reading the previous two books before this one. I read the first one, but it had been years, and I had no idea who Molly, the injured friend, was until I got 10% into the book. A stronger conflict would have improved the novel for me too.
