4 stars – perfect for the beach – and makes me want to visit Santorini!


They were friends who shared everything – until tragedy singled one out. At the birth of their daughters best friends Rachel, Mariel and Jenny make a promise: to love and care for each other’s girls exactly
as they would their own. Six years later and a tragedy has torn them apart. Within weeks, Rachel has packed up and gone. Settling on the beautiful, windswept Greek island of Santorini, she knows she has come
to the right place, but as she slowly rebuilds her world she can’t forget the pledge she once made to her friends. She hires a private investigator, the enigmatic Johnny Palmer, and arranges for him to send regular updates on the girls she has left behind. Over the years, with Palmer’s help, she is able to secretly soothe their growing pains – as well as those of their parents. But in Rachel’s new island life far from home, who will be there to guide her?


This is a great piece of chick lit – an easy and enjoyable read – perfect for the beach.

When tragedy strikes Rachel leaves her friends and family and heads to the deserted Greek island of Santorini where she seeks refuge. With a private investigator maintaining links with those she’s left behind she starts a new life on the island.

Candlish covers the subject of grief and mourning in a sensitive fashion resulting in a heartwarming tale – although I’m not sure that Rachel does the right thing by running away and distancing herself from everyone she loves.
