Blue skies, new love, and a glass of Bordeaux . . . what could possibly go wrong?
When Emmy Jamieson leaves her life behind and moves to La Cour des Roses, a gorgeous guesthouse amidst vineyards in France, everything is resting on her success as the new guesthouse manager.
Looming in the calendar is the biggest booking ever, when the entire eccentric, demanding Thomson family will descend for a golden wedding anniversary. With airbeds on the floor and caravans in the garden, La Cour des Roses will be bursting at the seams.
Emmy knows she’s up to the challenge, especially with the support of the gorgeous Alain, the half-French, half-English, caramel-eyed accountant. But she hadn’t counted on a naked, sleepwalking travel blogger, or the return of owner Rupert’s venomous ex-wife Gloria.
Gloria has a few things to say about Emmy’s new role, Rupert’s finances, and the unsuspecting Alain, which send everybody reeling. Just when Emmy can see a future for herself of endless sunshine, true love and laughter, are her dreams about to be ripped at the seams?
Emmy moved to France and is the manager of the guesthouse, where she works with Rupert, who is the owner. She hopes to get a good start to her new life-new job opportunities, new friends and some romance in her life. Without knowing, Gloria, who is Rupert’s cheating wife had agreed to take a huge booking, but as she’s not there anymore Emmy and Rupert have to deal with it all. The whirlwind that the guest and old secrets have caused, there’s a lot going on. Emmy and Rupert have to deal with different and difficult situations, which makes them think about their priorities and what really matters in life.
It’s the sequel to the first book, which continues where the first one ended. It was so good to be back in the familiar guesthouse in France. I enjoyed it from the beginning til the end. I was glad that everything worked out well for Emmy and Rupert and Gloria finally showed who she really was and is. I hope to visit the guesthouse and the village again, it was a real treat.
