Retreat to the Spanish Sun: Escape to Spain with this feel-good summer romance from the #1 bestseller Kindle Edition
Sometimes you just need to get away...
'Warm and life-enhancing, I wanted to move to Spain with these wonderful characters' Katie Fforde
'A fabulous read celebrating the good things in life - fun, friends, family and food' Jill Mansell
From the bestselling author of Escape to the French Farmhouse comes a deliciously feel-good new story...
Eliza has a full house! When her three children grew up and moved out, she downsized to a smaller property... but now they're all back. Every room in the house is taken and Eliza finds herself sharing her bed with her eldest daughter and her daughter's pug. Combined with the online course she's trying to finish, plus her job to fit in, there just isn't the peace and quiet that Eliza needs.
So when an ad pops up on her laptop saying 'house-sitters wanted', Eliza can't resist the chance to escape. She ends up moving to a rural finca in southern Spain, looking after the owner's Iberico pigs, learning about secret gastronomic societies... and finding a new zest for life and love along the way.

Eliza thought she was in for a life of peace and quiet when she downsized to her small flat after her children and husband had all flown the nest. Yet one by one the children are returning. Eliza decides she needs to find her own space again and takes a job house sitting. Not just any old house sitting though, Eliza takes herself off to the Spanish sun and takes up residence in a Spanish farmhouse. Complete with prized pigs.
This book is full of the usual problems for our main character to solve, but along the way she discovers friendship, food and love. Full of the usual Jo Thomas magic, evoking feelings of skin warmed under a Spanish sun, dry, dusty heat, wonderful scents and flavours of food you could almost taste and the sounds of insects gently making their own music in the distance. I devoured this book in 2 days and must now return to my usual wait for the next trip around the globe with Jo Thomas. Wonderful read.
Well done Jo for a great story. I’ll shall be reading more of your books from now on.
Not a masterpiece, but it was an enjoyable escape from reality.
