Blurb: The second volume of the Francesca Trilogy picks up where Paparazzi left off: photographer Francesca Garancini has left her soccer star boyfriend and is adrift in Istanbul. Soft Focus traces the challenges she faces in a new relationship, trying to square her beliefs and values with a captivating new love. Longer blurb FRANCESCA IN ISTANBUL A gilded suite perched above the city, its glittering lights scattered at her feet. In the early days of her romance with the secretive Selim, heady and intoxicating like the city itself, Francesca can’t resist infatuation. She knows it’s wrong, but it feels so right. So what if he goes home at night to his wife and children? FRANCESCA IN MILAN Her best friend has a new baby, her assistant is absorbed with his boyfriend, her mother is displeased with Francesca’s choices. And her old friend Bruno shows up at the most inopportune times, like at a party where she’s supposed to be celebrating her single self, not escorting a nerd. FRANCESCA IN FREEFALL In the middle of the Mediterranean, Francesca’s sun-kissed, perfect world starts to slip away. Photographers descend on her yachting holiday, capturing her in an unflattering light with an inappropriate companion, and the waves become a full-blown tsunami by the time she’s back home. Suddenly, she’s contemplating decisions she never thought she’d have to make, and this time, they’re irreversible.
