  • Perfect Summer Beach Read

    Maddie Wilcox manages to score a summer job on a luxury yacht for the summer sailing the gorgeous turquoise seas of Croatia on the Adriatic. The opening was recommended to Maddie by her best friend, Nina, and Nina's brother will be among the guests. Nina's brother Nick Hadley, however, has been brought along on the cruise by Tara, an extremely spoiled (and slack-jawing beautiful) model who needed appropriate eye-candy on her arm. No secret they both turn heads. Maddie's character is relatable. She has her degree but what she really wants to do is paint and become an artist. She quickly becomes acclimated to the yacht and her master, but the guests, although few in number are more than a handful, particularly Tara. The model borders on contemptible and she and Nick clash. In the meantime, the reader is treated to a travelogue producing an ache for the road (on in this case the water), the food and the people paint a picture of its own. A scuffle with Simon results in an introduction to the extremely rich William Randall, director and producer and leads to a fun portion of the book. I was happy thinking the romance part of the book was downplayed a little, but then of course circumstance would throw the two together to realize they weren't all that different. Still, the novel is a delightfully well-plotted and fast read that comes together with satisfying resolution in the conclusion. The author's writing style is light-hearted, dialogue realistic, and the characters were well-developed. My only negatives would be the over-used clichés of the triangle, and the oft-repeated mantra of Maddie's lack of self-confidence. We get it. I was given this ebook download by the publisher and NetGalley and thrilled to have the opportunity to read and review. If you are looking for a delightfully refreshing summer read, grab this one. You won't be disappointed.

  • Cosy easy read

    This is another cosy read from Julie Caplin, this time featuring Maddie the hopeful artist we first met in ‘The Little Paris Patisserie’ and Nick, Sebastian’s friend and Nina’s brother from the same book. Maddie is a fantastically practical, no nonsense woman and Nick is generally a hard working farmer, when his head isn’t being turned by Tara his stunning model girlfriend that is. Set around a boat based in Croatia we find Maddie accepting a last minute job crewing on it for Nick, Tara and four of Tara’s friends (although perhaps acquaintances is more appropriate) This book has warmth, humour and characters in abundance, well written and very easy to read this is a great stand-alone book as well as part of the series.

  • Perfect Getaway Book

    This is the fifth book from Julie Caplin and all have been enjoyed immensely. Light and enjoyable reading. She transports the reader to locations we have only dreamed about. Her character development is excellent and you root for those in distress and the heroes. I've already loaded the next book in the Romantic Escapes series to my Kobo.

    I'm Croatian and when I saw this book I had to read it, it was so beautifully written I couldn't put it down...I'm in love with BBC that Secret Cove in Croatia. Must go and visit.
