Fans of Katie Fforde, Carole Matthews, Kate Forster or Erica James - and everyone who enjoyed Nick Alexander's The French House - will love Fiona Valpy.
Gina has lost her perfect job, her boyfriend and her favourite aunt all within the space of a few months.
So when she inherits her aunt's ramshackle French house, Gina decides to pack her bags for the Bordeaux countryside - swapping the miserable English weather for blue skies, sunshine, great wine and a fresh start.
What she hasn't factored in is a hole in the roof, the most embarrassing language faux pas, and discovering family secrets that she was never supposed to know.
Suddenly feeling a long way from home, Gina will have to rely on new found friends, her own hard work and Cédric - her charming, mysterious and très handsome new stonemason.
But whilst desire needs no translation, love is a different matter. Can Gina overcome the language barrier to make her French dream come true?

Really enjoyed this - nothing earth shattering, but the perfect light read with believable characters, nice location and story line. I finished it and came straight back on line to see if she had written any other books (no unfortunately), so gets my tick of approval.
