Product description

Product Description

Another chance at love is all they need … if the past doesn’t come back to haunt them.

With her decade-long marriage in shambles, business mastermind Lara Reddy leaves London behind and returns to Mauritius where a prestigious job awaits her. But once on the tiny Indian Ocean island, she finds more than she bargained for, like her insufferable mother, meddling aunties, gossip-mongering backstabbers, and the divorcee tag painted like a scarlet letter on her back. There’s also Eric, the first love she’d once let slip from her fingers.

Successful paediatrician Eric Marivaux loved and lost Lara when they were teenagers. Now in his thirties, he’s worked hard to get over her and live his life … until he comes face to face with a single-again Lara, which sends every resolution he’d had about her onto the wind.

She is of Indian origin; he is a French-Mauritian white man. Society deemed their pairing forbidden in the past. But they’re adults now, with a mind of their own & no longer under the thumbs of their formidable families.

Will they succeed in surviving the odds this time around?

Warning: If you love Bollywood shenanigans, over-the-top family drama, & casts of colourful characters, then you will enjoy this story of second chances that follows the trials & tribulations of the eldest of the three Hemant sisters in the exotic location of Mauritius.

About the Author

Stories about love, life, relationships... in a melting-pot of culture. Zee is an author who grew up on a fence - on one side there was modernity and the global world, on the other there was culture and traditions. Putting up with the culture for half of her life, one day she decided she'd stand tall on her wall and dip toes every now and then into both sides of her non-conventional upbringing. From this resolution spanned a world of adaptation and learning to live on said wall. The realization also came that many other young women of the world were on their own fence. This particular position became her favorite when she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of writing - her heroines all sit 'on a fence', whether cultural or societal, in today's world or in times past, and face dilemmas about life and love. Hailing from the multicultural island of Mauritius, Zee is a degree holder in Communications Science. She is married, mum to a tween son, & stepmum to a teenage lad. You can visit Zee online at:
