Maybe in Monaco by Kaya Quinsey Holt reveals that It’s been ten years since Charlotte Levant had last been home. Ten years since leaving behind her biggest secret. Ten years since last seeing Freddie Ridgeport. The familiar smells bring Charlotte back to reality as she sets foot in front of Le Soleil. She has returned home to look after her Meme, her only living relative, who was recovering from surgery. Will her return uproot the lives of those she so desperately tried to keep out of hers? Making every effort to remain unseen, it is only due to fate that the paths of the former high school sweethearts cross again, although this time one of them has baggage. Freddie makes his intentions clear in his attempts to capture her heart once again and all seems to be going well until his ex, Violet, intervenes. Desperate to stay out of Freddie’s life, Charlotte's stay in Monaco only draws her further into it. She left once before, but can she do it again?

Kaya Quinsey Holt provides a fast-moving story in Maybe in Monaco, rarely keeping readers in suspense for long. The past, present, and future of Charlotte Levant and Freddie Ridgeport's love story is revealed. In less than a week, the main characters find themselves developing into the parental figures they never had. This development could very easily have a crack in the foundation. Built on lies, betrayal, and naivety, our happy family might soon be as they once were before - broken. The author does a noteworthy job of creating a story of unrest, deceit, and heartbreak in one of Europe’s most spectacular places. It seems that trying to keep everything bright and shiny does not keep your emotions tidy after all.
