Sun, croissants, and fine wine. Nothing can spoil the perfect holiday. Or can it?
When Emmy Jamieson arrives at La Cour des Roses, a beautiful guesthouse in the French countryside, she can't wait to spend two weeks relaxing with boyfriend Nathan. Their relationship needs a little TLC, and Emmy is certain this holiday will do the trick. But they've barely unpacked before he scarpers with Gloria, the guesthouse owner's cougar wife. Rupert, the ailing guesthouse owner, is shell-shocked.
Feeling somewhat responsible - and rather generous after a bottle (or so) of wine - heartbroken Emmy offers to help. Changing sheets in the gîtes will help keep her mind off her misery. Thrust into the heart of the local community, Emmy suddenly finds herself surrounded by new friends. And with sizzling hot gardener Ryan and infuriating (if gorgeous) accountant Alain providing welcome distractions, Nathan is fast becoming a distant memory.
Fresh coffee and croissants for breakfast, feeding the hens in the warm evening light, Emmy starts to feel quite at home. But it would be madness to walk away from her friends, her family, and everything she's ever worked for to take a chance on a place she fell for on holiday - wouldn't it?
Fans of Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond, and Nick Alexander will want to join Emmy for a glass of wine as the sun sets on the terrace at La Cour des Roses.

Easy to read and to listen to, I enjoyed this little book. I loved the characters and wish I could wallow in the charm of The Little French Guesthouse.
An interesting and smoothly written story that keeps a good even pace and a believable plot. Well narrated with Interesting voice changes. Good easy listening.
"I'm looking forward to the sequel."
It was a lovely story and the narration was great! Thoroughly enjoyable! Can't wait for more!
Not a heavy story but well written and narrated beautifully. I envisioned myself in the French countryside and loved all the characters in the story. I highly recommend this as a feel good listen, especially after listening to books with more unpleasant topics.
"Absolutely loved it!"
This is a really good story, full of interesting characters, lovely scenery and some unexpected twists. It's my first time reading a Helen Pollard book and I'll definitely be reading more from this author. Helen Johns did an excellent job with narration.
"Very nice read"
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a little slow to start but eventually I enjoyed it very much. It is a nice, light read.
