I really loved the prologue to this book with Danny and Harriet - it's only short but sets the book up nicely and really lets us get to know the character of Danny well enough to care about him and his three children. I love that no secret is made of the fact he has three children too. Instead, the tension comes from wondering when and if the girls are going to meet their father, and indeed each other, as none of them realises their half-sisters exist. The book whizzes across the world, from the UK with Megan, and later Esmé and Claudia, over to Mexico again which was fantastic as it kept the book fresh and me really involved in the reading.Read more ›
Set mainly in Cancun,it follows the lives of 3 very different girls trying to find their Father and the ups and downs they encouter along the way. Lots of great characters and relationships with some great twists.
The book starts in Mexico in 1989 with Danny and Harriet who are newly weds on their honeymoon. Things soon take a turn for the worst for Danny when his wife leaves and returns home before the end of their holiday. Broken hearted Danny finds himself in the arms of not one but two women to help nurse his broken heart. I know reading that part will automatically get your back up and give a negative perception of Danny, but I loved his character although he seemed like a very troubled character this gave him a kind of vulnerably which only made me warm to his character more.
The storyline soon moves to the present day when we meet Megan, Esme and Claudia who couldn't be any further apart when it comes to their appearances and their personalities but they later find out that they are all looking for the same thing.
This would have been the perfect book to take away with me and it will definitely be one for you all to read to get you in the Summer mood if our weather starts to improve. The descriptive writing the author uses describes Cancun to perfection. I loved the way each chapter changed between each of the three girls because they are so different it made each chapter fresh as we got to know each of the girls. I loved that the author kept us guessing right until the end as to how the story was going to end.
I found it very hard to put down it was a great début novel for Alison Lucy and I will be looking out for more work to come by this author. If you like authors such as Belinda Jones and Victoria Hislop then Alison Author will be a name you will add to your list.
So when he returns one night she tells him she's leaving as she's in love with someone else. Having won a deserted island in one of the poker games, Danny decides to stay on in Mexico as he has nothing to return home for. Soon he meets first Catalina then Lucy who both help him to believe in love again but as quick as they enter his life, they leave and he's on his own once again.
The story then fast forwards 21 years when we're introduced to three young women, Megan, Esme and Claudia, who couldn't be more different from each other with different upbringings but all three end up in Cancun at the same time looking for the same thing...
It's hard to believe that this is the first novel from Alison Lucy as it was very well written and the story flowed easily between the back stories of each of the girls. This book would make a perfect holiday read on a beach somewhere, or maybe like me you can enjoy reading this in your garden now that our summer has arrived... well for a few days anyway.

just a nice easy beach read about 3 characters who are all linked to a shared past and eventually come together - this is a tried and tested formula for popular female fiction, but... Read morePublished 22 months ago by Claire Summers
Better than I thought it would be from the cover picture. Good twists & turns. Sometimes hard to remember who was who.Published 23 months ago by Mrs K M Madan
The only thing is that it jumps around a lot but keep at it as the book is great
