More about the book

Whilst she’d hoped to buy her dream motorbike and style her image to one a little younger and more fashionable, she instead has to contend with her daily mistakes, job hunting in a new country and finding self-worth when it feels like all is lost and how to exchange broken sex toys in Spanish.
In an effort to keep sane while job hunting in her new country, she joins an all-male cycling group, explores the art of drinking coffee slowly, starts Spanish lessons with Alejandro and discovers what it means to overcome fear and to reclaim friendship, sensuality and joy. Both light and profound, this novel will leave you emotional, reflective and wanting for more.

I absolutely loved the story! It’s such an enchanting and easy read.
