For Ruthie Collins, it was an Italian farmhouse. Yet as she battles with a territorial goat and torrential rain just to get through the door of her new Italian home, the words of Ed, her ex, are ringing in her ears.

She is daft, impetuous and irresponsible. But Ruthie is determined to turn things around and live the dream. First, though, she must win over her fiery neighbour, Marco Bellanouvo, and his family...

Then there's the small matter of running an olive farm.

As the seasons change and new roots are put down, olives and romance might just flourish in the warmth of the Mediterranean sun. Jo Thomas takes you there.
