Summer at the Little French Guesthouse

Helen Pollard

Summer sun, chilled, white wine, and a gorgeous fiancé. Nothing could upset pure bliss … Right?

Emmy Jamieson loves her new life in the gentle hills and sunflowers of the lush French countryside, managing La Cour des Roses, a beautiful, white stone guesthouse. With marriage to caramel-eyed Alain just round the corner, things couldn’t be more perfect.

The odd glass (gallon) of wine dulls the sound of Emmy’s mum in full motherzilla-of-the-bride mode, and the faint tinkling of alarm bells coming from Alain’s ex are definitely nothing to worry about. Guesthouse owner Rupert and a whole host of old and new friends are there to make sure nothing gets in the way of Emmy’s happiness.

But as Emmy gets close to the big day, a secret from the past throws everything decidedly off track. Will her idyllic French wedding go ahead as planned, or will Emmy run back home to England with a broken heart?

This summer, escape to the rolling vineyards of France for an utterly uplifting read. Fans of Jenny Colgan, Debbie Johnson and Nick Alexander will want to join Emmy for a pain au chocolat in the sun-drenched garden at La Cour des Roses.

What everyone’s saying about Summer at the Little French Guesthouse:

‘I’m utterly bereft that this fantastic book has come to an end … I have been hooked on from the start … grips my heart and won’t let go … I could potentially wax lyrical for far longer about various aspects of the book, but really I may start spoiling it for you … a wonderful way to escape your own life, while devouring a great story that should have you grinning!’ Rachel’s Random Reads 5 stars

Love this book! … I barely got the first one done and I grabbed the next two to continue … Fun characters, fun story, and makes me want to pack a bag and head to the Loire Valley in France.

Lots of fun and sunshine here! … I hadn’t read books 1 and 2 but didn’t feel I’d missed out at all! It’s a typical French village in the Loire Valley with fields, meadows, bicycle rides and French hunks … Yup – this novel will transport you – it’s a lovely French affair!The Book Trail
