Darcy's husband, Patrick-le-Pew, turned out to be a right stinker. He casually announced over dinner one evening that he was leaving her for one of their dinner guests. Needless to say, the dinner was ruined.
Oblivious to her rival sitting at her own dining table, Darcy didn't see it coming.
Now the husband is an ex- and Darcy is left to pick up the pieces.
She packs up her life and her two children, leaving London for rural France and Normandy; and a job designing a new garden for an old chateau not far from the historic city of Rouen, thinking this will be a golden opportunity to collect her thoughts before she moves on to something more permanent. But Life, like even the best of designs, seldom goes precisely to plan and Darcy discovers that unexpected opportunities and complications arrive in the form of the chateau's straight-shooting owner and local bad boy made good, Gabriel Dubois.

She is taking a well-earned rest from further tertiary education for now. Growing up in the far south of the far south of New Zealand, she soon noted that it was a very long way from ...anywhere. She started travelling as a secondary school exchange student to that ‘other’ south, …Tennessee, USA. Post her post-graduate diploma, she flew to London, where she worked in several jobs, including Landscape Architect in a building overlooking Buckingham Palace’s gardens, before producing the first of two wonderful children. Her CV now consists of a curious mélange of academic achievements, places travelled and an unusual mix of workplaces ...she could also add several months of ‘Chateau cleaning’ in France to her résumé but feels it may reduce the tone somewhat. She utilises the bountiful experiences she has garnered from all this travelling and working abroad in her writing. Having returned to that ‘other’ south in 2016, after a year of living in Chattanooga, she has recently relocated to Washington State with her husband and their rescued ex-racing greyhound …who sleeps in Seattle while she writes.
