Bonjour from a very showery SW France,
Today we have Spring showers and it is the perfect weather for curling up with a good book and not feeling guilty.....
Today I am offering you, my lovely readers, the chance to win a signed copy of "The French for Love" written by local author Fiona Valpy.
I can honestly say that I’ve read lots of novels set in Provence where the descriptions bring back great memories of vacations spent in the villages and picture perfect scenery.
What I really liked about this book is that it is set not far from us and the descriptions of the area really are spot on and it made me feel like I knew the characters from the beginning.
Here is a summary of the book, as supplied by Fiona....
Gina has lost her perfect job, her boyfriend and her favourite aunt all within the space of a few months.
So when she inherits her aunt’s ramshackle French house, Gina decides to pack her bags for the Bordeaux countryside – swapping the miserable English weather for blue skies, sunshine, great wine and a fresh start.
What she hasn’t factored in is a hole in the roof, the most embarrassing language faux pas, and discovering family secrets that she was never supposed to know.
Suddenly feeling a long way from home, Gina will have to rely on new found friends, her own hard work – and Cédric – her charming, mysterious and très handsome new stonemason.
But whilst desire needs no translation, love is a different matter. Can Gina overcome the language barrier to make her French dream come true?
Like a glass of wine in the French afternoon sunshine – The French for Love is the perfect summer escape.
I enjoyed reading the book and found it easy to read and think that it would make a perfect "take on holiday" book as it is easy to pick up from where you left off.
For your chance to win a copy of this fabulous book, please leave a comment below and I will draw a winner on Sunday.
bonne chance à tous, Leeann x
