Blinding sunshine… A bend in the road… What became of the little girl with the sun in her eyes?

Amber was three when a car crash stole her mother’s life. She doesn’t remember the accident, but a stranger at the scene has been unable to forget. Now, almost thirty years later, she’s trying to track Amber down.

Amber, meanwhile, is married to Ned and living on the other side of the world in London. When her father has a stroke, she flies straight home to Australia to be with him. Away from her husband, Amber finds comfort in her oldest friends, but her feelings for Ethan, the gorgeous, green-eyed man she once fell for, have never been platonic.

As Ethan and Amber grow closer, married life in London feels far away. Then Amber receives a letter that changes everything.

‘Before your mother died, she asked me to tell you something…’

Firstly a big thank  you to Dawn at simon &Schuster for sending me a review copy,felt like a very lucky book blogger !

I love Paige’s books ,I think if you want romance and chick lit she is your lady.I always find myself smiling when living in her words and this was no exception.

The cover is summery and very pretty and will make a perfect beach read just like the setting where this book is .Gorgeous Australia .

I was in hospital last week after my second suspected mini stroke, not confirmed but stressful and worrying nonetheless. So when I read the blurb I was shocked and emotional to see that Ambers dad has a stroke .

We read about how difficult this is for not only her dad but her marriage herself and her dads partner . It has such a knock on effect on so many people and being the role of carer is hard in many ways physically and emotionally and what happens when your supporting someone with your husband miles away ?

Amber has some deep issues surrounding her childhood and self esteem which I can relate to and when she meets Ethan a blast from the past is he what she needs to heal those wounds or will he cause more.

You cant help falling for Ethan he sounded like a hunk and with Ned her husband not around it was easy to forget him .However when we read how the met and fell in love I swooned hard…again please can I have a love story written for me .

Amber has some big decisions to make at such a  difficult time and things don’t seem to be getting an easier .

This is chick lit but it also isn’t all roses and love hearts there are serious issues and the characters are not perfect which is refreshing.

I loved it and  I read this at a time I was meant to as I took so much from reading Ambers story as I could relate a lot.
