Then. Now. Always.

Then. Now. Always.


Prepare to be whisked away to the Spanish sun in this completely absorbing page-turner

'So evocative you can practically smell the paella and sangria'

Hannah Hodges can't believe her luck when she's offered a trip to sunny Spain with her best friend and dreamy boss . . . but what's the catch?

When twenty-eight year old Hannah and her colleagues travel to Spain for a month to film a documentary, it's a dream come true. Not least because Hannah will get to spend long summer days with Theo, her (gorgeous) boss (and crush). It couldn't be a more perfect setting to fall in love . . .

If only Tom (Hannah's best friend and cameramen) and Claudette (the presenter) would stop getting in the way.

Then things become even more complicated when Nancy, Hannah's half-sister, arrives. What on earth is she doing here?

For just once in her life, can't Hannah have one perfect summer, free of any drama?
