AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW - the new novel from the author of The Flip Side!
'Takes the usual rom com formula and turns it on its head . . . refreshing, funny and heartwarming, we could not get enough of this' HEAT on THE FLIP SIDE
Three friends. Two summers. One chance to find the way back to you . . .
When Simon Brown reconnects on Facebook with his first love Sylvie - the French pen pal he never actually met - he is determined that this time things will be different.
However, life isn't so straight-forward at sixty as it was at sixteen. His daughter's getting married, he's got difficult guests staying at his B&B, and his larger-than-life school friend, Ian, has abruptly waltzed back into his life.
Adamant that he can't let this second chance pass by, Simon sets off on a bike ride from Bristol to Bordeaux with Ian in tow, on the very same route they covered as teenagers in pursuit of love.
But although they now have better bikes, more acceptable haircuts, and Google Maps, some things never change, and it soon becomes clear that this trip will have even more bumps in the road than the first.
Is it ever too late to make up for past mistakes?
How far can one friendship be pushed?
And will Simon finally meet Sylvie?
