Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: April 2004
Duration: 7 hours 54 minutes
American Lola Laforet seems to have it all-a whirlwind romance that turned into to have and to hold, a charmed life on the Cote d'Azur, and ownership of the magnificent Hotel Riviera. Tragically the dream ends as abruptly as it begins when her beloved husband mysteriously disappears. Heartsick, confused, and lonely, her life is thrown into further turmoil when a handsome stranger, Jack Ferrar, an American ex-patriot living on his boat, drops anchor in Lola's harbor and teaches her the meaning of instant attraction. When various sinister people, all claiming ownership of the Hotel Riviera, and the police suddenly appear, Lola is forced to confront the past she left behind and track down her vanished husband, with only Jack-and her conflicted emotions-for company.
"An endearing novel that manages to be light and languid in mood yet fast-paced, it should appeal to readers who enjoy Raffaella Baker."--Booklist
