Luckily for Lily there is an opening at the resort for her to change rooms seeing how Oliver is traveling with his new girlfriend. However unlucky for Lily the new suite is right next door to her ex-husband causing them to cross paths more than once on the trip. Lily becomes determined to continue her trip and even have a good time enlisting the help of her butler Enzo.
Emerald Coast by Anita Hughes is a bit of a different type of romance read as Lily and Oliver are freshly divorced but the book takes the reader on a journey looking back at their relationship and the ten years they had together. Alternating the past between Lily and Oliver and where they are at now in their lives intertwines the story showing just how love can go astray and gives a deeper meaning to the current events in their lives.
I actually enjoyed the characters in the book and had my suspicions on how things would turn out in the end all the while I was reading. The one character complaint that I would make would be I found it a bit odd that Lily was so forgetful in her day to day life but manages a successful business that spans the globe, a bit contradictory there. But making this book also shine was the lovely setting it takes place in, the author does a great job giving the feel of Sardinia bringing the area and customs to life. With the twist of focusing on a divorced couple and the lovely setting I found this one quite unique and an interesting read.

If you're looking for a good beach read this summer and plan to read all day long while soaking up the sun, this is the perfect book. A spectacular setting with vivid descriptions, reading this book really made me wish I was in the Emerald Coast. This was a nice "beach escape" for me.

Lily has arrived in Sardinia at a luxury resort. She is there for the opening of her new home furnishing store. She has a chain of stores from San Francisco to Milan, so she is excited for her latest shop to be open. The Emerald Coast is beautiful and Lily is looking forward to exploring for a few days before business starts.
What Lily doesn't count on is going into her shower to refresh and seeing a familiar shaving kit when she is toweling off. She and Oliver scheduled this reservation for the trip when they were still married & together. The have both forgotten and neither one of them cancelled! Lily has no choice but to move into the only available room, which is an adjoining one!
Oliver is a food critic and is in Sardinia to review a new restaurant. He has brought his new girlfriend, Angela, with him.
Lily tries to not run into Oliver, but it seems like their paths keep crossing. She enlist in her butler's help in finding someone to tour the island with. As Lily enjoys her trip with Ricky, it seems like Oliver keeps entering her day, and her thoughts.
On a very important night, they find themselves alone, but in each other's company. They turn to each other for support, and the old sparks that never left begin to fly. Can the lies that tore them apart be forgiven? Can they be together without breaking each other's hearts?
I loved the descriptive writing of the beauty of the island, the hotel, the food, the clothes and the people. It took me there, and i could visualize everything in my mind. It was touching, humorous, and a different type of love story.
