THE LEMON GROVE BY HELEN GROVE

Sexy, sultry and fast-paced. Impossible to put down. I totally loved this story. The atmosphere of Mallorca makes you feel you are right there.

Tomorrow they would be opening their door, and their holiday, to a stranger.

He is right across the bay in the place where the hippy chick dived in. He moves through the water in slow, strong stokes.  Jenn takes off her sunglasses,  wipes them on her shirt and puts them back on.  He pulls himself up onto a little plateau with effortless grace.  He has his back to her. There is no performance He’s exhilarated, out there.

One hot summer. One week in a villa on the outskirts of Deia, a village nestling in the rugged, mountainous west coast of the island of Mallorca.  One family for whom the carefully laid jigsaw of life is about to be broken.

Jenna and her husband Greg holiday each year in Deia, enjoying languorous afternoons by the pool.  But year the equilibrium is upset by the arrival of Emma, Jenn’s stepdaughter,  and her boyfriend Nathan. Beautiful and reckless,  Nathan stirs something unexpected in Jenn.  As she is increasingly seduced by the notion  of Nathan’s youth and the promise of passion,  the line between desire and obsession begins to blur. What follows is a highly charged liaison that puts lives and relationships in jeopardy.
