The journey is only as good as its end…
It’s been a hard journey, but Lizzie Lambert’s life is a Provençal dream come true. Her business is wildly successful, and with her little boy and the love of her life, Cal, she is making a beautiful home on the vineyard for their blended family.
But when Cal goes to America to support his son through a teenage crisis, it becomes clear the kid’s not the only one with some growing up to do: Cal’s glamorous ex-wife wants to get her claws in him again. As Cal spends longer and longer away, Lizzie wonders, was it all too good to be true?
Escape to Provence with Karen Aldous’ The Riviera, the perfect read for an idyllic summer.

Karen Aldous enjoys village life on the edge of the north-downs in Kent with easy access to the buzz of London. Not only does she love the passive pleasures of reading and writing, she also craves the more active pursuits with her family and friends such as walking, cycling and skiing especially when they involve food and wine!
Karen gets much of her inspiration from her travels and if she had to choose, France, Greece, Switzerland, Italy and Lake Tahoe in US would be her favourites. However, wherever she goes, she discovers a new character emerges in 'Karen's World'. She likes to write about strong independent women who can direct their own lives - but struggle to control them! And, of course there's always a gorgeous hunk or two!

I give it - 4/5
My review - I enjoyed this story!
It was very lovely and really cute read!
In this we meet Lizzie and Cal. A couple who are so much in love it's cute. But they do have a few road bumps and with Lizzie having a few trust issues due to her past not everything is coming up roses.
I really liked all of the characters in this book and I could relate to Lizzie a lot. With her trust issues and all. I could see where she was coming from the majority of the time. I also felt very sorry for Cal as he had to deal with his ex-wife, his 16 year old son etc.
It was a beautiful story and I recommend this to everyone who loves a bit of romance with also a few extras that just make this story complete!
