Description

It was as if the Chateau and its inhabitants were just waiting for Alexandra’s arrival (and those who follow) to breathe new life back into it. I'd absolutely recommend this book to anyone and everyone, whether you're a romance lover or not, read Katie's books. A lot happens in the last third of the book which gives it a slightly uneven pace but that takes nothing away from this cosy read. I can’t believe that this is the first book by Katie Fforde that I’ve read as it definitely won’t be the last!

A Wedding in Provence is the second in a series of three about three girls who met on a cookery course in London. Katie Fforde paints an accurate portrayal of 1960s privileged, upper-class society where pearls, champagne and cookery courses mask a lack of emotional intimacy within families and the acceptance of sexual aggression towards women. Telling the story of Alexandra who takes on a nannying job as a change of career, in a French chateau.

Cookery school-trained, with ‘colloquial and rustic’ French, Alexandra is to take charge of le Comte’s – Antoine’s – three children in a chateau in Provence for a month. Smegenims visiskai atjungti lengva atostogine romantika 👌🏻 tobulai klisinis scenarijus, kur durniau ir nesugalvosi: nudrengtoj pily gyvenantis neturtingas grafas vaikams pasamdo 20mete auklyte, kuri pasirodo dar ir yra dideliu turtu paveldetoja. This book is like a lovely, warm hug in front of a toasty fire, It's essentially The Sound of Music story, with less music and just enough original details so that it is not merely derivative.

I loved Jack and Penelope reuniting and falling love again and even David f ding love, yet having to still stay hidden due to social convention.I have to say, I kept forgetting that this was set in the 60’s as it felt like it could have been happening today, until something happened that was clearly set in an earlier time. I love any book that can take me on a beautiful journey in foreign countries, from the comfort of my home. How will she learn to cope with the three children of the French count who is the father to the three, as she finds herself falling for him?

With a get-on-with-it mindset, she throws off her pearls and stiff dresses and adopts a barefoot Provençial lifestyle. Alexandra is on her way from London to finishing school in Switzerland when she stops off in Paris for 24 hours.So, after a trying week at work I had a date with my sofa and the book on the Saturday and I wasn’t moving! As I have been reading and enjoying her novels since 1995, I think I can safely say her writing never fails to provide just what I need at the time. Set in the 60s but to be honest that has little bearing on the narrative - jute a lack of mobile phones! Alexandra is on her way to live with her starchy relations and decides to stop off in Paris for a couple of days sightseeing. A Wedding in Provence is published by Century Books and available now in hardback, ebook and audiobook formats.
