If you ever wanted a trip to Paris then this is the book to pick up, not only will have a fabulous holiday in Paris but you will meet country girl Rachael West who has lived her life on a farm in NSW Australia growing wheat she has been caring for her mother and running the farm for the last ten years and after her mother passes away Rachael’s life is about to change drastically. One big question does she still love her first love?

Rachel had chosen to stay in the small country town of Milton to care for her mother rather than moving to Sydney to study at university with the love of her life Matthew Grant who was going off to medical school they had big plans for their future but like some plans they change and people change and Matthew ends up breaking off their relationship and moves on in life leaving Rachael to carry on being the caring person she is.

So when the invitation to Matthew’s wedding arrives just after the death of her mother and it is an a trip to Paris for a week of events Rachael is torn between going or not, you see she still loves Matthew and this is going to be hard for her. With her best friend from school Sammy, she decides that going will get him out of her system once and for all but maybe not. Sammy goes with her on the trip that will uncover secrets pull friends apart and also make new friendships even if embarrassment makes the new friendships stutter a bit.

I really did love this story it is compelling reading once you pick it up you will not want to put it down it is beautifully written and yes there were tears, sadness and joy, MS Nash has captured the honesty and the strength that true friendship holds. The journey from country NSW Australia to Paris was amazing the descriptions made me feel like I was there and the clothes to be able to sew and design like that. This is a story that I highly recommend and will stay with me for a long time to come, oh to see Rachael realize what she needs to do with her life and Antonio is just what she will need  a fabulous read.

5/5 stars for a fabulous story
