About the Book
Ashley Moon is all set for a dream holiday with her daughter in the glittering French Riviera. But nothing can prepare her for the shock of discovering who’s staying in the villa next door…
Ashley Moon got much more than a suntan on her first ever foreign holiday; one whirlwind romance and nine months later she had a daughter, Molly.
Too heartbroken and proud to ever contact the father, Ashley made a decision to go it alone and raise her daughter herself. Fifteen hard and lonely years later, she finally has the chance to take Molly on her first ever holiday; a gorgeous, all-expenses-paid trip to the charming French resort of St. Raphael.
It is the perfect setting for a week of quality time together; they plan to cycle through the sun-drenched vineyards, lounge by the glistening pool and practise their French on friendly locals. And just when Ashley thought things couldn’t get any better, comes the news of a handsome new occupant in the villa next door.
But fate has other plans for Ashley. One look into her neighbour’s dark hazel eyes is all it takes to give her the shock of her life. Standing in front of her is Haydon, Molly’s long-lost father and the holiday fling she thought she’d never see again.
As the temperature on the Cote D’Azure steadily rises and Ashley and Haydon begin to spend more and more time together, will Ashley find the courage to tell him who she is – and more importantly, who Molly is?
A wonderfully heart-warming story of first love and second chances for fans of Jenny Oliver and Lucy Diamond.

Magnifique! Loved this second chance love story set in the beautiful south of France… another book that allowed me to go on vacation without needing to pack a bag or board a plane…. A lovely story filled with French food, French villas, French family, and French kissing 💋
16 years ago Ashley found herself pregnant after A fling on a holiday to Ibiza… all she knows about the baby daddy is his name and the fact that he gave her the wrong phone number… now 16 years later Ashley finds out that the handsome Englishman vacationing next-door is Haydon AKA baby daddy… now this is extremely coincidental and highly improbable, but hey it’s fiction, right? Loved getting to know both Ashley and Haydon they were both real relatable characters and fierce parents…
So… what do you do when you find yourself vacationing next to an old fling who is also the father of your daughter? Oh and I forgot to mention he does not know this….. Panic! And then you read this book to find out what not to do 😂 well Ashley probably did not handle this as well as she could have,but…. who am I to judge? I’ve never been in this situation…. and Ashley’s mom really did not help the situation she was a bit hostile and a bit pushy….
This was a very sweet love story… with a beautiful setting and charming characters that left me with a smile on my face and craving a croissant… absolutely recommend when you’re in the mood for a second chance love story that will sweep you away to the south of France!

Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing. She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.
Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. In 2016 she signed to the hugely successful Bookouture and is currently working on her next Tilly Tennant novel. She also writes as Sharon Sant, where she explores the darker side of life, and Poppy Galbraith, where things get a little crazier.
