Best Lucinda Riley Book - Perfect Summer Read

This is now my favorite book by Lucinda Riley. Prior to reading The Olive Tree, my favorite Lucinda Riley book was The Seven Sisters. But Riley's new contemporary novel quickly stole the place of favorite.

Lucinda Riley creates intriguing character dynamics in The Olive Tree and focuses on character development rather than a sweeping story spanning the decades.

This book is a perfect summer read. Set it Cyprus with a tropical locale this book is perfect to read poolside. The drama will keep you captivated throughout with plenty of twists and turns.

I'm an avid reader of Lucinda Riley's book and the first few chapters I thought I had this one all figured out. But I turned out to be wrong and was pleasantly surprised with the twists in store.

Nice, easy listen, cute story

Nice storyline. Sweet characters. Narrator was good except for the one American voice he tried to do. Thank goodness that person only had a few lines. It was ghastly!

how I loved this book.

This book for me was a slow burn, but after a few chapters, I was hooked. The bit at the end with Lucinda & Harry are also really interesting

Loved Harry Whittaker narrating this book.

The character of Alex was definitely my favourite. He was very amusing and Harry was the perfect narrator. I found myself chuckling.

Chloe was pretty unbelivable. A little one dimensional and her father was a bit of a sap, but I did enjoy this book.

It is a good summer read although I found it a little unbelievable that the family left Pandora empty for so many years. I would want to return yearly.

Simply brilliant!

I loved the story being read by Lucinda and Harry playing her son. The book is written from two prospective but covers the story and lives of lots of people, all bathed in the lovely Cypriot sunshine. Will listen to this book many more times!
Thank you all so much!
Esther
