I am absolutely OVER THE MOON to be joining in with Tilly Tennant’s blog blitz for The Summer Getaway 🙂
Many thanks to Noelle at Bookouture
The Summer Getaway is such a heart-warming story, with the loveliest of character’s, some of whom have not always had it easy.
Ashley and her teenage daughter, Molly, have only ever had each other as Molly has never known her dad. The result of a holiday romance, with the handsome Haydon, when Ashley was just 18, a simple misunderstanding kept them from finding each other when they returned home. Ashley has always assumed he wrote the wrong number on purpose and he had always assumed she must have wanted nothing more to do with him. Who would have thought an invite to a relatives 100th Birthday would bring them face to face once again!
I warmed to Ashley instantly. I have to admit that I pictured her as looking like the author and I couldn’t imagine her as looking any different throughout the whole story. I think she and Haydon, who I imagine to be very easy on the eye and naturally likeable, make a very cute couple and I was praying that they could re-ignite the spark they obviously felt all those years ago. It was never going to be straight forward though, with teenagers (and well meaning, but meddling mothers) involved!
I did find myself wanting to shake Ashley at times, but I could totally sympathise with the sensitivity of the situation, but I can’t believe Haydon didn’t twig sooner.
It was evident that they had both been hurt in the past and almost didn’t dare believe that they could have a happy ending together, but the chemistry between them is undeniable.
Set in France in what sounds like the most beautiful town, The Summer Getaway is a fabulous read which is perfect for this glorious weather we have been having. If you’re going on your holiday’s take a copy of this with you. It’s just so lovely. Tilly Tennant has a way of drawing you in to her stories from the very first page and I always love the character’s. I was totally immersed in Ashley’s story and I hope she gets the happily ever after she deserves.
Many thanks to the author and Bookouture for my ARC and for the opportunity to be a part of this fabulous blog blitz! 🙂

Ashley Moon is all set for a dream holiday with her daughter in the glittering French Riviera. But nothing can prepare her for the shock of discovering who’s staying in the villa next door…
Ashley Moon got much more than a suntan on her first ever foreign holiday; one whirlwind romance and nine months later she had a daughter, Molly.
Too heartbroken and proud to ever contact the father, Ashley made a decision to go it alone and raise her daughter herself. Fifteen hard and lonely years later, she finally has the chance to take Molly on her first ever holiday; a gorgeous, all-expenses-paid trip to the charming French resort of St. Raphael.
It is the perfect setting for a week of quality time together; they plan to cycle through the sun-drenched vineyards, lounge by the glistening pool and practise their French on friendly locals. And just when Ashley thought things couldn’t get any better, comes the news of a handsome new occupant in the villa next door.
But fate has other plans for Ashley. One look into her neighbour’s dark hazel eyes is all it takes to give her the shock of her life. Standing in front of her is Haydon, Molly’s long-lost father and the holiday fling she thought she’d never see again.
As the temperature on the Cote D’Azure steadily rises and Ashley and Haydon begin to spend more and more time together, will Ashley find the courage to tell him who she is – and more importantly, who Molly is?
A wonderfully heart-warming story of first love and second chances for fans of Jenny Oliver and Lucy Diamond.
Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing. She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.
Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. In 2016 she signed to the hugely successful Bookouture and is currently working on her next Tilly Tennant novel. She also writes as Sharon Sant, where she explores the darker side of life, and Poppy Galbraith, where things get a little crazier.
