I'm so glad I stumbled on this book! Beautifully written with a very likeable heroine and an original story line. It evokes happy memories of warmth and sunshine and time spent with people you love. It's been a long time since I've read a book that made me feel so happy and positive and I can't wait to give it as a gift to friends and family.

Penny and Jeremy return in A Rather Charming Invitation with their newly glamorous life. Jeremy has finally proposed and everything would be grand if Penny could just get motivated to organize the wedding. But there are some many tough decisions to make! Should they get married in France or England, either choice will alienate one side of the family. In the midst of the planning a long lost cousin shows up on their doorstep. Her family is offering the loan of a mysterious and antique bridal tapestry for the wedding. Penny is still puzzling over the cryptic message in the tapestry and the vague legends of its history when it is stolen. Penny and Jeremy are hot on the trail - the tapestry has to be found before the wedding! Diving into a C.A. Belmond book is like taking a fun and frivolous vacation and A Rather Charming Invitation is no exception. Penny is still refreshingly naive, Jeremy as madly devoted to her, and Rolo as charmingly devious. I loved the addition of the tapestry to this mystery and the history and drama that it added. The newly introduced French cousin is especially beguiling and I hope we see her again. I listened to this on audio narrated by Katherine Kellgren. Fabulous! Her various accents are so fun to listen to and she get the fast-paced excitement just right.

Penny and Jeremy are back with new relatives. Penny is getting pressure from all sides of who to invite to the wedding and where to have it. Eveyone has an opinion about the wedding. Penny is having doubts if she can make a marriage last. Penny and Jeremy are meeting new clients and family members propelling them on another adventure through Europe. These characters make you wish the were alive to meet them and enjoy in the fun. This is the third in a great cozy series.

American heiress Penny Nichols and her fiancé London barrister Jeremy Laidley are planning their wedding when her French cousin Honorine arrives in England. They need to return her young relative to her parents in Mougins, France. There her Aunt Leonora and Uncle Phillipe offer the use of an ancient bridal tapestry and their chateau for their wedding vows. However, Jeremy's very British grandmother wants the ceremony in England so the couple has to convince her to cross the Channel. As they struggle to persuade his family's matriarch that her specific demands will be met in France, the tapestry is stolen. Jeremy and Penny return to France to investigate who robbed her family's valuable heirloom. The third Rather tale (see A Rather Lovely Inheritance and A Rather Curious Engagement) is an engaging contemporary that contains several mysteries re their respective families' secrets and obviously the missing tapestry. The story line starts slow yet is insightful as Penny is a nervous wreck and it picks up once the heirloom is stolen. Although the whodunit has too many holes, fans of the Rather charming saga will enjoy the latest entry wondering if Penny needs to wear rubber underwear when she says oui. Harriet Klausner
