After a disagreement with a billionaire, architect Jess Milton is ‘let go’ from her job. However fortune intervenes – an elderly client asks Jess to dog-sit overweight, but loveable dog Brutus in St. Tropez.
Fed up with the mega-rich, Jess is reluctant to visit the playground of billionaires, but an all-expenses-paid trip and the promise of sunshine seals the deal.
Little does Jess know how much time she’ll be spending with the family living in St. Tropez. The sullen, but very good-looking David and his millionaire father are both welcoming but guarded, haunted by their pasts…
Can Jess bring some sunshine back into their lives – and, just maybe, find love in the process?
What I Thought:
Although it’s seasonally mild, it’s still getting chilly, so what could be better than escaping to the South of France for drama and romance?
Dreaming of St-Tropez is one of a series of ‘Dreaming of…’ books by T. A. Williams in which the main characters leave their old lives behind in favourite of exotic locations. These books have been previously only available as e-books, but some have recently been published in paperback through The Works – it’s great to have these books more widely available.
To sum this book up, I’d say it was pure escapism – two beautiful young girls travel to the South of France and enjoy all that it has to offer, while making positive changes in the lives of their hosts. The stunning scenery and locations are described with lots of detail to make you really feel as though you’re experiencing that warm sunshine with them, and the central romance plot is initially sweet, with a very dramatic ending!
Although I am happy to have read quite a few of T. A. Williams’ books, I think so far this is my favourite – Jess and David make a very star-crossed couple, but getting to their eventual resolution is an engaging journey.
