Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Can she find her recipe for happiness? 

Del and her husband, Ollie, moved to a beautiful village in Provence for a fresh start after years of infertility struggles. But six weeks after they arrive, they’re packing the removal van once more. As Del watches the van leave for England, she suddenly realises exactly what will make her happier...a new life in France - without Ollie. 

Now alone, all Del has is a crumbling farmhouse, a mortgage to pay and a few lavender plants. What on earth is she going to do? Discovering an old recipe book at the market run by the rather attractive Fabian, Del starts to bake. But can her newfound passion really help her let go of the past and lead to true happiness?

A heart-warming tale about reclaiming your life, set amongst the lavender fields of Provence. Perfect escapism from the author of Late Summer in the Vineyard and The Honey Farm on the Hill.

waste of a credit

I was really looking forward to reading this as I'd loved another novel by the same author. However this was so boring I abandoned it two hours from the end.

I devoured it in two days

I just loved this book, it is my second book by this author and I have just downloaded 3 more, the descriptions of the places and the characters just draw you in. A perfect escape.
