Recommended by

Marie Lalevée
Une novella au ton estival, où intrigue et humour sont au rendez-vous... Cette histoire se sirote légèrement, comme une menthe à l'eau.
On est tout de suite dans l'ambiance en lisant cette histoire d'un homme qui se retrouve en vacances sur un bateau sur la côte italienne avec sa petite amie, et son frère casé avec... son ex!
Parfait pour le bord de la piscine, ou pour vous évader si vous travaillez tout l'été!
