Escape to France with Late Summer in the Vineyard - Jo Thomas' irresistible follow-up to The Oyster Catcher and The Olive Branch.
Emmy Bridges has always looked out for others. It's time she put down roots of her own.
Working for a winemaker in France is the opportunity of a lifetime for Emmy. Even if she doesn't know a thing about wine beyond what's on offer at the local supermarket. There's plenty to get to grips with in the rustic town of Petit Frère.
Emmy's new work friends need more than a little winning over. Then there's her infuriatingly brash tutor, Isaac, and the enigmatic Madame Beaumont tucked away in her vineyard of secrets. But Emmy will soon realise that in life - just as in winemaking - the best things happen when you let go and trust your instincts. Particularly when there's romance in the air....

"A fabulous French feast of fun." (Milly Johnson)
"This book is scrumptious! Fantastic setting, endearingly human characters and a page turning plot. I couldn't stop reading." (Katie Fforde)
"What a gorgeous book! Reading it felt like the best kind of holiday." (Lucy Diamond)
"A warm-hearted, sparkling gem.... It's the perfect summer escape and I loved it!" (Miranda Dickinson)
"Captures the essence of France from the vineyards and chateaux to the glorious sunshine and of course, the wine." (Cathy Bramley)
Beautiful performance/production, and I often felt planted, like one of the vines, in the story. Made me 'feel' each of the characters, even the horse and the dog!
Beautiful story: I worried, laughed, smiled, and cried all through.
Lovely story. Kept me interested throughout. Loved the characters. Great summer reading. Want to read her other books now.
If you like the occasional romantic read I highly recommend this book. Although parts of the story are a bit predictable, I enjoyed listening to it, and could not put it down till I reached the end.

I really enjoyed this audio, I liked the story very much, the twists and the turns were good.
The descriptions were imaginative and I was taken there whilst listening as I did the housework!
The narrator, Rachel Atkins was good, she had a great accent too.
I would recommend this audio.
This is the first book that I have read by Jo Thomas and I wasn't disappointed. I really enjoyed the story and the narrating was excellent. I will sampling another on if this authors books soon.
Not the most exciting story line I've ever read/listened to but very enjoyable and entertaining . Informative about wine and vineyards, the story benefits from the details the author passes on . A classic romance well written and very well narrated .Highly recommended for easy listening .
Brilliant narration. Interesting storyline. No blatant sexual content which I found refreshing. I shall probably listen to it again one day.
