Love STrikes where It Pleases

Commercial Fiction, Fiction

Happiness is hinding among the hills of the countryside

Cleo leads a life full of glitter and shine, swanning around Berlin, meeting up with her friends at the extravagant 'Roaring' club. But when she loses a bet, she soon finds herself on a holiday in Brittany on taciturn Finn’s farm, where the alternative lifestyle almost drives Cleo spare. That is, until she takes over the farm’s unsuccessful and uninspiring stall at the local market and breathes some life into it. Perhaps Finn is beginning to appreciate her presence afterall…
While at the farm, Cleo discovers a newfound calm and serenity within herself. And as she begins to feel a new attraction towards Finn, she begins to question her old life.

When Cleo returns to Berlin, it is now too loud, too chaotic, too fast for her. But she can’t admit to herself that what she really longs for is the tranquillity of the farm – and, perhaps even more so, she longs for Finn. When she unexpectedly runs into him at the 'Roaring', she realizes that maybe it is possible, after all, to live in both worlds… 

  • A totally romantic love story, set on a Breton farmstead
  • From hip Berlin to idyllic Bretagne
  • For lovers of Jojo Moyes
