Description



About the Book



"Celebrated romance author Catherine Swift has topped the bestseller lists for decades, though her personal story hasn't been quite so successful. Three failed marriages have left her relationship with her daughters strained, but that's about to be rectified. Engaged yet again, Catherine is counting on this wedding to be what finally brings them together as a family, and she'll do whatever it takes to make that happen. Adeline doesn't know what's worse--that her mother is getting married a fourth time, or that she's being guilted into witnessing the train wreck at Catherine's luxury villa in Corfu. It brings back the pain of her parents' split, of her mother's infidelity and the baby that was the result. Not that she blames her half-sister, Cassie, but then she's never made an effort to know her, either. Cassie, on the other hand, is thrilled by her mother's news and admires Catherine's resilience. She's equally excited about meeting the mystery groom, and at the prospect of spending her summer in Corfu, where she can process a secret of her own she's been keeping from everyone. As Cassie and Adeline arrive on the island, they each have very different expectations of what this week will bring--they haven't been entirely honest with their mother about their lives, either--but in the lead-up to the wedding, all will be revealed, for better or worse"--

Family is messy and love is unpredictable… but sometimes all it’s takes is a step toward each other and everything falls into place ♥️ I stumbled into one of author Sarah Morgan’s books a few years ago and was so lucky to land a spot on her review crew after that! I wait eagerly after each novel for the next one and am never ever disappointed! Her books are wonderfully written, full of love, friendship,and family and always leave you feeling dreamy and happy! If you need a good summer read- one you won’t want to put down.. The Island Villa is perfect! When you’ve finished -pick up any of Ms Morgan’s other novels to fill up your beach bag for complete satisfaction! She has a magical collection of Christmas books to fill those dreadfully cold winter months too!
