About this deal

She bumps into Donna outside the Sacré Coeur, and there begins a chain of events that leads her to gaining employment from the handsome Le Comte de Belleville. To find out what personal information we collect and how we use it, please visit our privacy policy. The Chateau where they live is almost a character in itself and definitely feels like a real place that I can imagine visiting and the surrounding area of Provence is also well detailed.

When the family members decide she should join them to attend a Swiss finishing school, she decides to spend a few days in Paris first, visiting the city. A Wedding in Provence is the second in a series of three about three girls who met on a cookery course in London.Soon, however, she finds herself up against Antoine’s former mother-in-law, Grand-mère, who wants to move in and educate the children so they ‘do not grow up as savages’.

With relatable challenges that keep her on her toes – Antoine’s over-bearing ex-mother-in-law and his haughty ex-wife, a prickly love rival, the upward battle of building trust with children who have all but been neglected – Alexandra’s character develops gently and convincingly.However, there wasn’t anything in the story to make it feel as though it was set in that period apart from several references to Audrey Hepburn. Telling the story of Alexandra who takes on a nannying job as a change of career, in a French chateau.

She has three children: Guy, Francis and Briony and didn't start writing until after the birth of her third child. This aside, I would still recommend this book and I would definitely read another Katie Fforde having enjoyed so many of her previous books. Think Sound of Music, Cold Comfort Farm and the joie de vivre of early Jilly Cooper, but all uniquely and irresistibly Katie Fforde. I want to thank netgalley, Random House UK, Cornerstone publishers and Katie Fforde for allowing me to read this book and give my personal thoughts.

Although there were many aspects of this story I enjoyed, and it was certainly romantic, I felt it was perhaps suited to younger readers than myself. I love any book that can take me on a beautiful journey in foreign countries, from the comfort of my home.
