Publisher's Summary

Leaving fame and fortune behind, it's the ultimate escape.... 

Can you live on love alone?

Willow Carruthers - British Oscar winner, style icon and mother of three - is facing a crisis: she’s broke, discovery of her partner’s infidelity has left her a single mother and, if the banks have their way, she’s about to be homeless.

Meanwhile, Kitty - nanny to Willow’s children - is desperate to keep her job and knows just the place they can retreat to: her crumbling ancestral home in the Bristol countryside, Middlemist House.

To both women in their hour of need, the idea of leaving LA seems brilliant in theory. That is, until Kitty’s brother, Merritt, returns home unannounced….

From London to LA, The Perfect Retreat is pure escapism - full of sex, scandal and intrigue.

Great story

I truly enjoyed this book. A little too descriptive in the love scenes at times but loved the romance.
