A small-town ASL teacher is reluctantly captivated by the Catalonian vintner determined to woo her across the Spanish countryside. Can a match made on a tour of Spain be a fairytale second chance for this grumpy/sunshine pair?
The ink on Cecilia's divorce papers might be dry, but she's in no hurry to connect with another traveling businessman, especially the spatially challenged one seated beside her on a crack-of-dawn flight from San Francisco to Madrid.
Felip should be on top of the world running his family's cava empire, however life has left him feeling unfulfilled as of late. Good conversation and a hard-won smile from his seatmate—a grumpy but lovely American hearing-impaired teacher—have him wondering if maybe fairytales are possible—or if he's lost his mind, especially when a series of mishaps lands him in the role of the substitute tour guide for her group.
Over the course of twelve days, Felip's irresistible charm and lust for life break down Cecilia's carefully constructed walls as he competes with needy teenagers and pulls off a daring rescue to show her they are a good match. Will Cecilia see that their worlds are closer together than she thinks, and that faith and compromise can give them a real happily ever after?
Perfect for fans of Shipped by Angie Hockman and People We Meet On Vacation by Emily Henry. And those who miss the excitement of exploring a new place with a special someone by your side will appreciate the journey.
Made me wish I was in Barcelona!
Great story about taking a chance on love, even when you’re not prepared for it. This book is immersed in the wonder of travel, the romance of a chance encounter, and the drama that always seems to surround teenagers. I loved that Cecilia was the grumpy one and how Felip broke through her walls, all while learning a few things about themselves in the process. As someone from a Spanish family, I thought the culture and beauty of Spain was highlighted in a way where it felt as if you were standing right alongside the tour group while they were exploring the country. Cecilia’s character was wonderfully written and so relatable. Its wonderful to see a heroine stand her ground and be confident in what she knows is best for herself. Finishing this book felt like coming home after a trip to España. Made me wish I was in Barcelona enjoying a glass of sangria and a plate of tapas. *I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
