Who’s dreaming about an exotic holiday? You, yes, and you? My goodness, aren’t we all?! Happily, thanks to favourite author Michelle Douglas, we can now armchair travel with absolute safety and absolute delight. Ah, the joys of reading.

Where are we going? Singapore … Just … take my ticket …

Designer Christy Minslow has given everything to her fashion brand Beach Monday. She creates all sorts of quirky, original gorgeous beachy things, like towels and sarongs, and her uniquely fashioned beach umbrellas—very much one of a kind designs that are functional yet fabulously fun. I want one, I truly do.

I can hear Michelle’s love of the beach coming through in Christy, who travels from Australia to emerge from Singapore airport into warm humid heat that embraces her like a beach hug on a summer’s day. Aaah.

Christy’s been invited to Singapore by billionaire James Cooper-Ford, also the head of his family’s international high-end fashion empire, Molto Arketa. They are opening a store on Singapore’s famous Orchard Road, and he wants to feature Christy’s products in the store. His family also want exclusive rights to her products. This may mean buying her out.

Wait, what? Why, after Christy’s spent years designing and building her brand? I think I’ll let the book speak for itself as to her reasons, and James’s desperate need for her to accept his family’s offer. High professional stakes, actually, on both sides, which makes their conflict rather intense.

I can tell you this. Christy’s spent years becoming environmentally accountable in regards to her international contacts and contracts, economic accountability, and promoting social equity in developing countries. She’s concerned that the track record from Molto Arketa may not meet her exacting standards. She doesn’t have blanket trust in the buyout bid and doesn’t want them to take advantage of her. Still, the offer’s intrigued her enough to come to Singapore to explore it a little further. And so, she meets James …

And oh, Singapore. The Gardens by the Bay, the Merlion statue, Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Clarke Quay, Sentosa Beach, and yes, Orchard Road. How lovely to walk with James and Christy as they explore!

Will Singapore work its magic as these two begin to fall in love? Will they be able to merge business with romance? Can James find time to relax and enjoy the beach, like he never has before?

You might be able to guess. This is a wonderful romance. Christy and James are lovely people, nice, decent, and honest with each other. Both of them have tremendously big, caring hearts, even if they do hide it most of the time.

Such a touching journey. Michelle, thank you again for a few hours of romantic bliss. My romantic Singapore holiday at home.
