“Could not put down this fabulous book, peppered with humour and characters you can relate to. A wonderful, laugh out loud summer read. One to share with friends and recommend to strangers.” – Renita D’Silva
Sun, croissants and fine wine. Nothing can spoil the perfect holiday. Or can it? When Emmy Jamieson arrives at rural French guesthouse La Cour des Roses, she can’t wait to spend two weeks relaxing and repairing her relationship with boyfriend Nathan – but they’ve barely unpacked before he scarpers with Gloria, the guesthouse owner’s wife.
Owner Rupert is shell-shocked and, feeling somewhat responsible and rather generous after a bottle of wine, heartbroken Emmy offers to help him. Changing sheets in the gîtes will surely help keep her mind off her misery. Thrust into the heart of the local community, Emmy suddenly finds herself surrounded by new friends and welcome distractions. Should she leave her old life behind and take a chance on a place she fell for on holiday?
Fans of Jenny Colgan will want to join Emmy for a glass of wine as the sun sets on the terrace at La Cour des Roses. Warm, poignant and very satisfying, Pollard’s book will have you salivating at vivid descriptions and laughing out loud at quick-witted repartee. Writing with flair and fluidity, Pollard has created a page-turningly good summer read that provides instant Gallic escapism.
