Cuban Heels - Emily Barr

Bored with life? Steal someone else's....

After splitting up with her boyfriend, Maggie has moved to the other end of the country. The trouble is, starting over isn't easy. The highlight of Maggie's day is the sound of the morning post being delivered, and reading replies to the letters she writes so compulsively. Then she accidentally discovers she can overhear everything in their neighbours' flat; and it becomes her own personal soap opera.

Libby and David live upstairs. Libby is finding full-time motherhood very difficult, even though baby Charlie is deliciously adorable. Just as she persuades David that she should return to work, he announces he's taking a sabbatical from his job. He's always longed to travel, and this is the ideal opportunity to spend six months in Cuba learning Spanish. Wouldn't it be fun to go as a family?

Within a decade the whole world would know his name. His trip might have been the adventure of a lifetime - had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure.
