Publisher's Summary

Lucy's perfect world came crashing down around her when she heard those four dreaded words: "I don't love you". Followed by the slamming of the door.
Six months later, still in shock and denial, Lucy boarded a plane to go somewhere far away. She needed to be alone, with no memories of Paul. While in Egypt she met Sebastian Steel, whose origin was as potent as his magnetism; he was half English, half Italian, and a successful hotelier in Sharm el Sheikh and Cairo. Sebastian also had another secret--the one he could not tell Lucy. Their relationship started and developed, and they began to realize they had a lot in common and discovered that their lives were inextricably linked. The two of them were soon embarking on an exciting journey brought about by the enigmatic, unseen, but ever present Primrose, who had brought these two together. Finally, after seven years in Egypt, Sebastian returned home to England, back to the cottage he had shared with his mother, but he was returning with Lucy--the woman with whom he had fallen in love.

Sweet Romance

--I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book I have listened to by Elizabeth Chapelle. This was a sweet romance. The thing that really caught my attention was the beautiful descriptions of Egypt. The story of Lucy and Sebastian was slowly evolving, and you can't help but love both characters. You could feel Lucy's pain in the beginning of the story, and how she grew stronger as time went on. Sebastian, extremely patient and tender, was the perfect gentleman. The way their history intertwines makes the story even more fun. I do wish it was longer giving some additional history as they travel back to England, and would loved to have seen more scenes with Lucy and her ex-husband. A little more drama would have been fun.

The narration of this book by Melanie Fraser was wonderful. She brought the whole story to life, always keeping me listening. She gives each character their own life, with feelings and emotions that draw you in. I love her narrations, always able to tell who is speaking and makes you feel as if you know the characters.

This was a short enjoyable listen.
