    Susanne O’Leary knows how to write a romance. I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed a fair few, so I can say that with authority. This is a story of two women: one, Chantal, the owner of an estate agency in the beautiful and captivating sunny French Riviera, the other, Flora, her new employee, who left Ireland with a broken heart seeking a new job and a new future. While Chantal takes a break to sort out her complicated home and love life, Flora is left in charge of selling properties to sun-seeking e Susanne O’Leary knows how to write a romance. I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed a fair few, so I can say that with authority. This is a story of two women: one, Chantal, the owner of an estate agency in the beautiful and captivating sunny French Riviera, the other, Flora, her new employee, who left Ireland with a broken heart seeking a new job and a new future. While Chantal takes a break to sort out her complicated home and love life, Flora is left in charge of selling properties to sun-seeking expats. Her new life is looking good, especially with the attentions of a rather good-looking photographer she met minutes after landing in France. But misunderstandings and mistrust threaten her happiness. The path is rocky for both Chantal and Flora as they seek the contentment they crave. What I like about Susanne’s romances is they have a good bit of meat on their bones: there’s no mushiness about them. They’re real and robust with rounded and credible characters and an element of the unexpected. She also has a delightful sense of humour which flavours the dialogue entertainingly. If you’re not a fan of the genre, don’t overlook Susanne’s romances. I guarantee you’ll start this very satisfying book and not be able to put it down. I’m eagerly looking forward to the next!

Will Flora enjoy selling real estate? Will Chantal's personal life leave her heartbroken? Will Flora find true love? Read to find out. The book was well written, had a lot of unexpected twists, and held my interest to the very end. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Needs editing This could have been an excellent book. The characters were well developed, but it seemed all they thought about was sex. I don't mind romance, but explicit sex is not for me!

    Selling Dreams is a book full of dreams and a little romance on the side. The take of two women intertwined via a small real estate agency. The owner Chantal and her new employee Flora. We read how two women struggle with love and dealing with other changes in their lives. Both have men problems that come to a head in a very dramatic way. The ending will let you see that selling dreams doesn’t just involve houses but life itself.

    A fun book France is a lovely backdrop to an engaging story. There's a little too much histrionics but it keeps the book popping. As a rule a good romance is 3 stars. I will read more by this author. A fun book France is a lovely backdrop to an engaging story. There's a little too much histrionics but it keeps the book popping. As a rule a good romance is 3 stars.

    Selling Dreams is a fabulous story set in Antibes, in the French Riviera. I loved the setting of this story, and really felt as though I was in France. Susanne O'Leary has a lovely welcoming style that draws you into the story, and really transports you into the world she has created. Selling Dreams features two main quite contrasting stories.

I loved the setting of this story, and really felt as though I was in France. Susanne O'Leary has a lovely welcoming style that draws you into the story, and really transports you into the world she has created. Selling Dreams features two main quite contrasting stories. There is Chantal who lives a double life, and runs an estate agency, with the philosophy of covering up the truth about the properties she is selling, however when her personal life becomes her highest priority, she leaves the running of the agency to her new hire, Flora. Flora has come over from Dublin, and has a difference in house selling philosophy, She also meets a Frenchman on the plane who she is rather enamoured with, until she finds out how he makes all his money. There is a great mix of the rich and famous, as well as those struggling a bit, in this story, so when there are restaurants mentioned, one day it could be one of the top places in the area, and the next they could be eating equally delicious sounding peasant cuisine in a small cafe. Flora also strikes up a friendship with a young rich man, when she takes him on her first viewing of a large house, with amazing views. However its clear he is hiding something, and I really enjoyed his story. There is a lovely cast of characters, and I felt as thought I really got to know some of them. I suspect others may pop up again in the rest of the series, which I am really looking forward to reading. It has been years since I last read a Susanne O'Leary book, but I'm going to try to make sure I read a lot more by her, as I really enjoy her writing and how she will take you to lovely locations and make you want to book a plane there.

    If you are looking for a bit of escapism away to warmer climes with a mix of likeable characters, you have found the right book! During our colder British months, it was a pleasant retreat to be whisked away for a few chapters each night. The ending wasn't quite as I had hoped, but certainly wasn't offensive. I think I would have liked something a bit more thorough.Didn't spoil the book overall though and I would happily buy more from the same author.

    Enjoyable read Interesting characters with their own little story to tell... But some you won't hear of until towards the end and A nice little twist thrown in also. I did feel some of the book was rushed especially at the end, if it wasn't for the epilogue I would have been more frustrated. I am however looking at getting the next book to see what happens next.

    Trust is hard to give. A Real Estate agency run by a troubled woman becomes an opening to a new life for Flora. She has lots of trouble trusting her boyfriend. Meanwhile the agency owner is trapped between her declining husband and an exciting lover. Very good read.

    Good book. This was a convincing book about the estate agency business in France, it had the stories of the people involved, and the glorious coast of provence it made me long to go there. Romance can sometimes be rather sickly but this isn't its a good piece of writing. Good book.

    This book fit the bill for light summer reading. Maybe I'm getting too old for this type of romance book but I didn't find it especially realistic or interesting.

    An enjoyable romance. There are enough ups and downs to keep you enthralled. There is just enough betrayal/misunderstanding to make it too mushy. The romantic setting certainly helps
