Publisher's Summary

A brand-new summery story about returning to your past and finding a new beginning, from best-selling author Jenny Oliver!
Every Summer has its own story....
For Ava Fisher, the backdrop to all her sun-drenched memories - from her first taste of chocolate-dipped churros to her very first kiss - is her grandmother's summer house in the sleepy Spanish seaside town of Mariposa.
Returning for one last summer, Ava throws herself into a project her grandmother would be proud of. Café Estrella - once the heart of the sleepy seaside village - now feels more ramshackle than rustic. Just like Ava, it seems it has lost its sparkle.
Away from the exhausting juggle of London life, Ava realises somehow her life has stopped being...happy. But being back at the summer house by the sea could be the new beginning she didn't even realise she needed....

Very enjoyable and lighthearted

Just what I was hoping for, easy to listen to, a story for summer with substance and despite the formula not predictable or corny.
