A wonderfully romantic novel from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Recipe for Love, A French Affair and The Perfect Match.

Who knows what might happen in a summer of love?

Sian Bishop has left the hustle and bustle of the city behind and has thrown herself into a new life in the country.

With her young son, her picture-postcard garden and her small thriving business, she's happy and very busy. She is not - repeat not - looking for love.

And then, one glorious summer evening, Gus Beresford arrives.

One-time explorer, full-time heart-breaker, Gus is ridiculously exciting, wonderfully glamorous - and, Sian tells herself, completely wrong for a romantically cautious single woman like her.

But she and Gus have met before. And, despite Sian's best intentions, it isn't long before she's falling for him all over again ...

Reviews

Captivating ... Fforde's novels are notable for their gentle humour and this one is no exception... Summer of Love is as deliciously addictive as Fforde's earlier books...if you're after an escapist novel that fizzes with warmth and wit, then this is perfect.

Daily Express

A heart-warming, uplifting and beautifully written story about the twists and turns that everyday life can bring.
