About the Author

Isabelle Broom was born in Cambridge nine days before the 1980s began and studied Media Arts at the University of West London before starting a career first in local newspapers and then as a junior sub-editor at Heat magazine. She travelled through Europe during her gap year and went to live on the Greek island of Zakynthos for an unforgettable and life-shaping six months after completing her degree. Since then, she has travelled to Canada, Sri Lanka, Sicily, New York, LA, the Canary Islands, Spain and lots more of Greece, but her wanderlust was reined in when she met Max, a fluffy little Bolognese puppy desperate for a home. When she's not writing novels set in far-flung locations, Isabelle spends her time being the Book Reviews Editor at Heat magazine and walking her beloved dog round the parks of north London.

Set in the beautiful town of Mojacar in Spain, this is an enchanting story, focusing on Hannah, and her half sister Nancy and her crush Theo, which by the time the book had finished left me with goosebumps, as the ending was rather unexpected.

Having read Then. Now. Always I feel as though I was transported to Mojacar and could probably find my way around the town reasonably well. It is one of those hidden gems of Spain, that isn't overrun with tourists and has a mystical history, which is what Hannah and her colleagues are most interested in.

Hannah went on holiday to Mojacar for three summers when she was a teenager and has never forgotten the place, so when the company she is working for wants to do a documentary about a place with an interesting history, she puts the town forward and is delighted when she is allowed to accompany the others on the month long production trip.

Theo is Hannah's boss, and she has had a long term crush on him for years, and is hoping this Spanish trip will be the opportunity to make an impression on him. Tom, the cameraman is also on the trip, and he is Hannah's best friend, although people seem to think there could more to their relationship than meets the eye. Claudette is the French presenter of this documentary, who will be sharing an apartment with Hannah and they really are quite different, so Claudette adds quite a bit of background colour to the book.

However Hannah isn't too pleased when her half sister Nancy shows up in Mojacar, without any notice or explanation, especially since she has a complicated relationship with her. All of the dynamics of the group change once Nancy arrives and I found it really interesting to see how things unfolded, especially trying to work out the reason she is in Spain.

This is the first of Isabelle Broom’s books which I have read having somehow not got around to previous books My Map of You and A Year and a Day which I have heard others raving about. Be warned that if you haven’t already booked your summer holiday before your read this book, you will want to go to Spain after you’ve read it! One thing I had heard about Isabelle Broom’s novels was that she creates an amazing sense of place and that was absolutely true.

The storyline follows Hannah, a tv researcher who has the opportunity to go to Mojacar in Southern Spain with her boss Theo who she has a huge crush on. She hopes that among the beautiful surroundings and in the heat, some passion may grow between her and Theo as she uses her knowledge of Mojacar to show him around and impress him. To her annoyance, her half-sister Nancy turns up unexpectedly.

The setting of this book, Mojacar is a town in Southern Spain which is in the Almeria region and is close to the Mediterranean Sea. Isabelle Broom paints a vivid picture making easy to visualise the white of the houses shimmering in the heat with splashes of pink from the bougainvillea trailing over balconies and the deep blue of the sky and the sea. I could imagine the heat of the sun, the coolness of the sea and almost smell the lemons in the air. The author certainly created a perfect sense of the location of her novel.

I enjoyed reading about Hannah as she lusted after her gorgeous boss and tried to engineer ways for them to be together. The relationship between Hannah and Nancy was really interesting too. Hannah felt abandoned by her father and that he favoured Nancy. She was clearly hurting and saw Nancy as the source of this rejection.

Isabelle Broom you really should get a job in a travel agency - actually I’m not sure you could sell anymore holidays if you did? First Greece, then Prague and now Mojacar in Almeria, Spain!

Every book is like a postcard - drawing the best and the quirky from every location sprinkled with the Broom charm of fun characters, meaningful stories, laugh out loud scenes and touching moments.

Hannah has to spend time producing a travelogue and so chooses Mojacar as she remembers the place from her childhood. She goes with her work colleagues but also her boss who she’s secretly pining for. when the blurb asked For just once in her life, can't Hannah have one perfect summer, free of any drama? I thought, haha no, imagining Isabelle Broom rubbling her hands with glee as she wrote it.

There’s plenty of Spanish flavour, Spanish fun and lots of sunshine. It’s a strange sensation returning to a place you’d be known as a child or from years ago and I think Isabelle picks out the feelings of confusion and nostalgia well. The town hasn’t changed too much in many ways, its’ beauty still evident but Hannah changes as a person whilst there. And it’s both a humourous and very moving story! She’s a bit of a wet blanket at the start of the book so well done Mojacar for waving its magic!

‘Mojacar showed me who I was, and who I wanted to be‘

Well Hannah, this book made me want to go to Mojacar and see what magic I might discover there too!
