THE HIDEAWAY by Sheila O’Flanagan proved a great read. After devasting news, the author took us on a journey from soul-destroying distress to acceptance and new beginnings. All the while the backdrop of sultry Spain with its orange groves, vineyards, and handsome men held the reader entranced. I read the book quite quickly. I wanted to know how Juno mended her broken heart. It seemed time and the beautiful Spanish scenery, along with Pep helped soothe the past. Beautiful. I hope the author writes a follow-up to this book, as I would love to find out what happens next. There was so much more to know. ★★★★★ 5 STARS – Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book.
