I have read all of Katie Fforde’s novels. My favourite is still The Rose Revived, but they are all worth reading if you like romance novels.
Here’s the blurb …
Late summer, 1963
Fresh from London and a recent cookery course, Alexandra has always loved a challenge.
Which is why she now finds herself standing outside an imposing chateau in Provence.
Waiting for her inside is three silent, rather hostile children who are to be her charges for the next month.
They will soon be more friendly, she tells herself. All they need is some fun, good food and an English education.
Far more of a challenge though is their father – an impossibly good looking French count with whom she is rapidly falling in love . .
It was light, fun and easy to read. There is always a lot of food prep in the novels (makes me hungry).
