Sometimes what you’re running from is exactly what you need
Olivia Chevalier is perfectly happy living a quiet life of solitude with her two cats in the tempestuous countryside of Brittany.
Olivia’s peace is disrupted when heartbreaker extraordinaire Marie Dievart moves in to the holiday home next door after an event at work makes her flee her everyday life.
Olivia hates having a neighbour and Marie is put off by Olivia’s cranky ways.
But maybe these two women have more in common than they first believe.
Best-selling lesbian romance author Harper Bliss brings you a slow-burn opposites-attract story about the power of connection and opening yourself up to the possibility of love.
Love that one of the characters from Harper’s previous series French Kiss shows up! Especially one that was so disliked gets paired up with the main character.
A great story to settle down to read after long day.
Can two opposites fall in love?
That Woman Next Door is a love story of complete opposites. Marie, an arrogant neurosurgeon who enjoys the city life and has retreated to rural Brittany to disconnect from her high-stress job to do some soul searching, and Olivia, who translates English crime novels to French and lives by unconventional rules. What happens when Marie arrives at her family’s summer home in Brittany and knocks on her neighbor’s door, and meets Olivia? Harper’s writing reflects each character’s unique personality. The story is a re-evaluation of their lives and their willingness to adapt for love. I enjoyed the book; however, the ending for me was a little abrupt. Again, I prefer more clear-cut endings, but the ending reflects the character’s personalities and their future.
