on July 27, 2014

The lemon grove by helen walsh 
The blurb 
Each summer, Jenn and her husband Greg return to Deia, on Mallorca’s dramatic west coast. This year the arrival of Emma, Jenn’s stepdaughter, and her new boyfriend Nathan threatens to upset their equilibrium. Beautiful and reckless, Nathan stirs something unexpected in Jenn. As she is increasingly seduced by 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. For Jenn, after this summer, nothing can ever be the same.
What i say 
I really wanted to read this book cause i heard so much about it or seen it so much in papers 
The book very well written her details are very good i could see the villa in Mallorca the whole islands ,the food ,the whole place was in my mind as it was put into so much detail 
Jenn and greg are enjoying their holiday there go there most years they have since emma was young . Them seem to be enjoy their time together but why does greg phone keep ringing but he not answering it why? it was not what i was thinking you have to wait to the end of story to find out who been trying to call the whole time they are away they got a whole week togo till emma who is 15 now and her boyfriend who 17 join them on this family holiday i not sure why at 15 you take your daughter boyfriend on hols with you. I may be to old my mum would never let that happen but at 15 i would have took a girl friend 
I think jenn having a mid life crisis she seem happy till they turn up i not sure i like that jenn and nathan seen to be having a thing together and why would a 17 year old boy be having sex with a over 40 year old lady i not sure if it was very believable but i wanted to keep reading to see if they get caught in the act so to me that makes the book a good read the ending is clearly written i did not see that at all i like how well the book was written i had to finish to see what happen it just could not see it happening to me it was un believable
The book very well written just not a book for me 3 stars borrow ok read wouldn’t read again you may enjoy it i did but the story not one a liked not me
