The Gessami Residence
It tells the story of a woman who, although mature, still fully intends to live her life to the full.
Written by Jane L. Gibson it tells the story of Jenny.
Jenny, who is in her early 40s, has had a bad time of it recently, following the unexpected death of the love of her life, her husband Paul, three years previously.
Her sons are all at university and the only thing that keeps her sane are her three best friends, Amanda, Beth and Rose.
After a bit of a confab, they decide that what they really need is a girly holiday, during which they can escape the mundanity of their every day lives and live it up for a while.
Rose hits on a trip to that idyllic and peaceful haven of quietness and exquisite good manners, Ibiza but she keeps the location of their holiday secret until they arrive at the airport. (EDITOR: Oh, dear!)
After the first night of their holiday is spent in heavy drinking, Jenny falls for a handsome stranger called Ethan. Well, actually, that's stretching it a little bit, she falls, drunkenly, on the sand and Nathan finds her and, rather gallantly, helps her back to her hotel room.
Jenny is intrigued by Ethan. He isn't what she would have expected to find in Ibiza, but the more time she spends with Ethan, and with her irrepressible friends, she starts to come out of her shell, so to speak, and to realise exactly what she has been missing in her life.
Do Ethan and Jenny fall in love? Will they be together for ever? How will her sons cope with this new dynamic in Jenny's life?
