Publisher's Summary

When is it right to follow your heart? From the plains of rural Australia to Paris, the City of Love, lose yourself in this touching and romantic story by the best-selling author of The Horseman.

Ten years ago, Rachael West chose not to move to Sydney with high-school sweetheart Matthew. Instead she stayed on the family wheat farm, caring for her seriously ill mother and letting go of her dreams. Now, Matthew is marrying someone else. And Rachael is invited to the wedding, a lavish affair in Paris, courtesy of the flamboyant family of Matthew's fiancée - a once-in-a-lifetime celebration at someone else's expense in Europe's most romantic city.

She is utterly unprepared for what the week brings. Friendships will be upended, secrets will be revealed - and on the eve of the wedding, Rachael is faced with an impossible dilemma: should she give up on the promise of love, or destroy another woman's life for a chance at happiness?

If you enjoy Rachael Treasure and Rachael Johns, you'll fall in love with this deliciously poignant story about family and friends, and love lost and found.

Weak lead female character

I still like the author but the love story part of this really failed for me. The lead female seemed like an awesome character but the fact she was always pining for her first love and was willing to ruin another womans wedding, whom she liked, by cheating with the fiance 😣 it really killed it and totally turned me against her. I just didn't want to listen to anymore. The narrator was good until she put on the accent for the second love interest. His part was totally ruined for me by the weird way he sounded. I wish it had been left up to my imgination how his mixed accent sounded. But the rest of the characters were done well.

Not what I expected

This is the first book by Charlotte Nash that I’ve read and it certainly won’t be the last. This book follows the story of Rachael West who 10 years ago chose to stay at home and look after her seriously ill mother on the family wheat farm instead of following her high school sweetheart, Matthew to Sydney. By doing this she gave up on following her dreams. Now 10 years later, Rachael’s mother has sadly passed away and she’s living on the farm by herself, and Matthew is marrying someone else. Rachael get’s an invitation to the Wedding which included an all expenses paid trip to Paris. It’s going to be a big lavish affair and Rachael isn’t sure if she should go or not. Eventually she decides to go on what will be a trip of a lifetime. Rachael is totally unprepared for what this week in Paris will bring. Will seeing Matthew again bring up all the old feelings??? Will Rachael meet a tall dark stranger who will become the man of her dreams???? Will Rachael return to the farm broken hearted???? Will all of Rachael’s dreams come true????? Will love conquer all??? I actually listened to the Audio of this book and thoroughly enjoyed it…. There were twists and turns and the story certainly did not turn out how I expected it to.
