What you need to know before your trail

Tess Barton is stuck in a rut. She’s working three jobs while trying to get her career as an artist off the ground… and now her sister wants her to run a marathon too?! No thank you!

But it’s not just any marathon. It’s the Barcelona marathon and they’d be running in memory of their late sister. She’s ready for her flight but when disaster strikes and Emma can’t make it, Tess finds herself facing a new city and challenge all alone. That is, until an unexpected rendezvous in a little tapas bar with gorgeous Spaniard Roberto.

Facing the unknown Tess laces up her trainers, determined to master the marathon…and maybe find love in the city by the sea at the same time.

Travel Guide


There’s a love of art amongst the characters of this novel and so Barcelona is the perfect place for them to indulge it!

Gaudi was the kind of designing buildings. they didn’t have any great age about them, not did many of them have the grandeur of buildings such as the cathedral in her hometown, but what they did have was imagination.

There’s the Sagrada Familia too…the famous unfinished cathedral that Gaudi had started to build. Abandoned as Tess feels when she realises that she’s in this grand city on her own!

Imagine then trying to run a marathon when there’s so much to see and do, and  it’s all a bit hot?
